Ski Schladming by Train

173 km of piste between 745-2700m

An old mining town now famous for its winter sports and for hosting the 2013 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, the slopes at Schladming consist of an extensive loosely connected circuit of mainly pleasant cruisy runs. The lifts on the Planai have lifts from the outskirts of Schladming and are served by a ski bus, although they are walkable from the station. Despite being low-lying the resorts has mostly north-facing slopes with good grooming and snow-making facilities. Overall the resort has reasonable facilities for all but the most demanding and hard-partying skiers and snowboarders, and makes a good choice for a family break.
