• Fatbike on Snow

    All sorts of tours across the gorgeous Ramsau am Dachstein winter landscape

Alpine Fatbike

Experience the winter of Ramsau on two wheels

Fatbikes are mountain bikes built especially for use on snow. The extremely wide balloon tyres provide for a light run and easy handling in all snow conditions. Thanks to their safe handling characteristics, fatbikes are also suitable for children (from the age of 12).

Ramsau am Dachstein, with its many permanently groomed winter walking routes, sleigh-trails, and ample forest roads, offers ideal conditions to take to your bike – even in winter.

Our Alpine Fatbike Centre has ten brand-new Norco Fatbikes, as well as all the equipment necessary for your winter adventure on two wheels.

We offer several guided tours for all levels – from a ride for a first-time user and our tours across the Alpine pastures to the freeride adventure.

A particularly exciting adventure is the night ride to the Halser and Sonnenalm. Equipped with a strong headlight, you will experience one great winter’s night in Ramsau and enjoy the magic of a mountain hut in the evening.
