Pure nature experiences off the beaten track: Enjoy the peace and grandeur of the winter wonderland to the full and take in the idyllic and romantic atmosphere of the Dachstein West ski region.

Complete silence, only the soft crunching of snow accompanies snowshoers from the Hornspitzlift middle station (1200m) to the top station (1433m). Even though the snow is deep, you barely sink in and walk as smoothly and safely as on a well groomed trail - only better. The nearly two-hour tour takes you past the quaint Zeishofalm and rewards winter hikers in the Dachstein West ski region at the end with a breathtaking panoramic view of the imposing Dachstein and the surrounding mountains. Good warm and breathable winter hiking clothes makes snowshoeing in Gosau a pleasure.
