Dachstein / Zwieselalm
The Gosau section of the Dachstein West ski area comprises the Hornspitz, along with Brumsiland and the more demanding Zwieselalm. The Zwieselalm doesn’t just reward boarders and carvers with its spectacular 360 degree views to the Dachstein Glacier, Lake Gosau and the most beautiful surrounding peaks by day, but visitors with a valid ski pass can also make use of the floodlit slopes every Wednesday and Friday, 7 - 9.30 p.m.

Towering high above the Danube, the town of Vichtenstein is dominated by the 895m high Haugstein mountain, the highest peak of the Sauwald forest. Winter sport enthusiasts flock to the Haugstein ski area every year, taking advantage of nighttime skiing possibilities on Wednesdays and Fridays until 9.30 p.m. and Sundays until 7.30 p.m.

Visitors who would like to see the Feuerkogel in a different light can do just that on a snow-shoe or torch-lit hike, ski tour, sled ride, or on the popular night-time ski run.
