Schladming was a wonderful skiing experience in every way. This not so well know resort in the Eastern Alps is much larger than it appears. Each mountain is a nice size in itself but add the four link mountains together and you have a week of exploring to do.
The ski runs are extremely well groomed. Restaurants are everywhere. A great excursion is to rodel at night at Hoch Wurchen. A wonderful rodel piste with a small restaurant at the top by the name of Hoch Wurchen Alm.
The glacier at the Dachstein is definetly worth the trip. You do not need a car because there is a bus system to get you around, but things are a bit spread apart so a car is useful.
All in all a ski area well worth the effort.
