The ski resort between Annaberg, Russbach and Gosau offers for sure a perfect winter holiday for ski- and snowboard fans. There are of course ski tracks of different difficulty levels for beginners and advanced skiers. For more exciting adventure try the Gaudi tracks: "Wilde Hilde", "Rock'n Roll", "Donnergroll"... There are also beautiful areas for cross country skiers in the Dachstein West region.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: from December 2014 the modern cabine lift Donnerkogelbahn takes you from Annaberg up to the Riedlkopf. 8 passengers fit in one cabine and this is a very fast and comfortable way to get from Annaberg to the tracks in Russbach and Gosau area.
