There are two ski regions accessible from Bad Aussee: Loser and Tauplitz. The Loser Ski Region boasts an amazing view of the Dachstein Glacier and has been recently modernized. At the Tauplitz Ski Region, you can also go cross-country skiing or sledding in the evening.
I haven’t had the chance to go skiing for some years probably because I usualy choose to spend my holidays at a more sunny destination. Now that I moved to Austria, one of the best countries for snowskiing, I think it’s the ideal time to remember how much I loved it, how addictive it is, the adrenaline rush you get and what an amaaaaazing exercise it is!
I am not really good in snowskiing so certainly I needed a good ski school for a good guidance after all these years I wasn’t skiing, and I found it. If you are looking to enjoy the slopes skiing and snowboarding, or freeriding, learn how to ski from the very beginning then I highly recommend:

We stayed at Hotel Erzherzog Johann right in the centre of Bad Aussee city.
A very traditional hotel with the friendliest staff I met in Austria so far. The breakfast was excellent but overall the food was average.
The hotel offers an amazing Spa definitely worth visiting, especially after skiing. With an indoor 5x10m, 30 degrees pool AND an outdoor 3x1.5m, 32 degrees hot tub!!! Special daily health and mental programmes, gym and relaxing panoramic area with complimentary healthy snacks and selection of teas, even if you just need to relax and unwind after a long day.
It was the perfect weekend with a lot of activities (8 hours of skiing), swimming and relaxing!
Have an amazing and active T Week x
