Gunstock Nordic Association's Glacier Skiing Trip To Ramsau, Austria

FasterSkierAugust 3, 2006

Ramsau, Austria, nestled high in the Alps, is a world-renowned cross-country skiing town. It has over 150km of ski trails in the winter which are great for running and walking in the summer. The skiing facilities there play host to World Cup events for Cross country, ski jumping and Nordic combined. The ski jumping stadium lies at the center of town and has two year-round ski jumps. Just outside town and very near to where we stayed is a rollerskiing track with different loops for all abilities. In the summer Ramsau plays host to many skiers who go there to train on the Dachstein Glacier, one of the best summer snow venues in the world. The Dachstein lies at almost 3000 meters elevation and has a 5 km Nordic ski loop which is groomed daily with perfect tracks for both skate and classic. The skiing is great and comes with spectacular views in all directions. The glacier also boasts several alpine lifts and a very modern tram station featuring a restaurant and Sky Walk. The Sky Walk, which was new this year, is a walkway where you can stand on a platform that hangs out over the edge of a huge cliff.
