Awaiting you just 300 m from Hotel Stegerhof is the Riesneralm - far removed from the hustle and bustle of other ski areas - home to state-of-the-art lifts, glorious pistes and outstanding snow conditions.
The famous Schladming-Dachstein ski region and the member ski areas of Schneebärenland are not far away either, inviting you to enjoy some skiing outside of Donnersbachwald.
The Riesneralm ski area has been upgraded in recent years with addition of modern lifts and snow-making equipment. 30 km of variant-rich blue, red and black-rated pistes, including the 7 km long Panorama Run, place the Riesneralm amongst the Top 10 ski areas in Austria.
NEW: CROSS RIDE TRACK for kids & adults
A groomed track with hill, banked turns and tunnel aimed above all at offering kids, for whom the Children's Ski Circuit down in the valley has become just a bit too small, a whole new skiing adventure.
The Riesneralm received recognition in the Ski Area Test for its children's offers, safety and snow-making infrastructure, earning the title of "Rising Star 2009". Ski Resort awarded the Riesneralm its distinction as 2010/11's "TOP Ski Area" , proudly garnering 5 stars for piste grooming as well as its offers for families and children.
In addition, the Riesneralm was the 1st Styrian ski area to receive the prestigious "International Piste Seal of Quality".
