Planai & Hochwurzen - The skiing heart of the Schladming-Dachstein region!

This is not only the heart of Styria and Austria itself, but also lies in midst of

123 kilometers of pistes, 43 modern cable car and lift facilities, culinary delights in 56 ski cabins, offers for kids and families, sportsmen and lovers – pure skiing enjoyment and winter fun!
