Description

Schladming was made a town in 1322 and its town square was pedestrianised 672 years later. A World Cup Downhill was first staged here in 1973 and the Alpine Skiing World Championships in 1982. The ski area now links four mountains in the ‘Schladming-4-Mountain-Swing’ and the larger area includes nine mountains.

Review

Schladming is a name which instantly brings to mind images of World Cup downhill racing in many skiers’ minds . The leading resort in the Steiermark area of Austria and of the Dachstein area of the Tauern mountains is a very well established regional centre, as well as being the centre of the Dachstein Ski area.

Schladming was made a town in 1322 and its town square was pedestrianised 672 years later in 1997. A World Cup Downhill was first staged here in 1973 and the Alpine Skiing World Championships in 1982. Today Schladming is a small lively town with a good selection of shops, bars, restaurants and hotels. It has many interesting and picturesque old buildings which add to the ambience of the place.

Although many regular Austrian resorts have reported up to two feet (60cm) of snow on their slopes, only one is reported to have started running their lifts early as a result, it was reported that the Planai above Schladming had its earliest ever opening this weekend.
