The greatest ski day of my life. Perfect conditions, wonderful friends, mind-blowing views, the most confidence I've ever had going down... it was incredible.
Dachstein West is an exceptional ski resort southeast of Salzburg. Last winter I skied at five different resorts, and this year I've tried out Kitzsteinhorn and Dorfgastein and each time I head out for a day on the slopes from my little mountain city, I aim to visit a different one since there's so many wonderful different ones in the vicinity.
I loved Dachstein West so much because it's a massive resort, with 160km of runs to explore, with the best views I've ever had from a slope, and an all around total blast.
My close friend Janna and her boyfriend Tim are avid skiers so we packed up the car for a day out and drove less than an hour out of Salzburg to reach the base of Dachstein West. It was the perfect day.
