Eigentlich hat ja der Dachstein Xtreme den Ruf als das härteste Tourenski-Rennen der Ostalpen, durch die Überschreitung des rund 3000 Meter hohen Dachstein Gipfels. Durch die Streckverlegung wurde zwar die Schwierigkeit des Bewerbes ein wenig gemindert, trotzdem waren auf der Lang-Distanz noch immer 1650 Höhenmeter und auf der Kurz-Distanz 1150 Höhenmeter, mit zahlreichen Wechseln und einer Tragepassage, zu überwinden. Über 180 Athleten und Athletinnen aus 16 Nationen stellten sich der Herausforderung, denn der Dachstein Xtreme wurde heuer immerhin wieder als Weltcup Rennen ausgetragen (Finale Weltcup Single). Der neue Verlauf am Fuße der mächtigen Dachstein-Südwand erwies sich aber als eine durchaus würdige Weltcupstrecke und wurde von den Teilnehmern sehr positiv bewertet.
