Beautiful snowshoe tour to the popular photo point Dachstein Shark at the Dachstein Krippenstein

At first you can comfortably reach 2 100 m above sea level with the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car from Obertraun. Starting at the mountain station of the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car, the trail takes you along the ski slope towards the chairlift valley station and on to the "Tellerlift". You leave the secured ski area at the upper end after crossing the lift track.

In the open terrain, the trail first goes slightly downhill and later on uphill again for 15 metres. Here you can explore the small Krippensteine ice cave on your own when the snow conditions are low. 

50 m after the ice cave you turn half left and walk about 20 minutes northeast along a slightly sloping slope to your destination: the Dachstein Shark. Enjoy the wonderful panoramic views with the mountain panorama and the view of Lake Hallstatt

Follow the same trail back to the mountain station.

The snowshoe trail is prepared and marked with poles and yellow signs every 30 to 40 m with the inscription "Dachstein-Hai".

Snow shoe rental at the valley station

You do not have any equipment? No problem. The Dachstein Krippenstein cable car offers you a special ticket including snowshoe rental: the Yeti ticket. With this ticket you can easily rent your snowshoes right next to the cable car station.


In case of emergency call the mountain rescue under 140!

Experience a 360° panorama tour of the Dachstein Krippenstein…
