Sports Centre Ramsau am Dachstein
… the Nordic World Champions’ Hot Spot
Ramsau am Dachstein is a training centre for top athletes all year round – both indoor and outdoor. The Nordic Showcase Centre with performance diagnostics, sports medicine, and coaching meet the athletes’ highest requirements. However, the centre is not only accessible for professional top athletes but also for amateur athletes and guests.
Ramsau am Dachstein’s Performance Centre offers a nine-metre climbing tower with different routes up to the difficulty level 9-, and a gym as well as a sports medical area for assessment of physical performance and training control.
The centre piece, however, is a treadmill suitable for ski rollers with adjustable velocity and gradient. On the 4.5 x 3 metres running tread, Olympic trails can be simulated in dry practice. Additionally, there are facilities to simulate high-altitude training. In a glass cage that is put over a treadmill, training in an oxygen-reduced environment up to a level of 2,600 metres is possible. By means of the breathing therapy, even altitudes of up to 6,500 metres can be simulated.
