Ski area Gastein

Ski area Gastein

The ski pass "Ski amadé" gives you access to a total of 760 km of piste and 270 lift system (see ski region)! The ski region Gastein is part of the Ski amadé and, with its 198 km of piste (including 21 km of ski routes) and 48 lifts, is one of the largest and most beautiful ski areas in the Salzburger Land. Thanks to the impressive altitude (up to 2,686 m) and numerous modern snow-making systems, excellent snow conditions are usually a given until spring.

The Gastein Valley awaits you with four ski areas: the interconnected ski areas Dorfgastein-Großarltal and Schlossalm-Angertal-Stubnerkogel, the Graukogel as well as Sportgastein. Their varied, perfectly interconnected selection of piste will make winter sports fans' hearts beat faster. Beginners can take their first winter sports steps on various broad pistes above Dorfgastein and on the other side of Fulseck mountain in the Großarltal. The mountain station at Fulseck mountain also offers a wonderful view of the Großglockner and Dachstein. Only reachable from the valley, but definitely worth a try are the demanding natural snow slopes at the Graukogel. Experienced skiers will also enjoy Sportgastein, one of the highest located ski area in the whole of ski amadé. Here you will find ski routes, deep powder snow slopes and mogul piste - the perfect place for cracks. The interconnection between Stubnerkogel to Schlossalm is the largest interconnected ski area in the Gastein Valley. Thanks to its altitude of 2,300 m it is also very snow sure. Freestyle fans will find nice snowparks at Stubnerkogel and Kreuzkogel in which you can show off your skills.

The large and versatile ski area is perfectly suited for families and children. Magic carpet lift, playing ground, ski schools and beginners' area offer optimal conditions for children making their first turns. More experienced skier families also have plenty of possibilities for good skiing along the ski area's wide and sunny slopes.

Furthermore, Wi-Fi hotspots are available in the ski area so that you can stay connected with your friends at home and load up your first pictures.

Après ski Bad Gastein

From the slope to the pub - that could be Bad Gastein's motto! Numerous eateries on the piste offer opportunities to relax and linger. Lively goings-on reign in resort, with the party-hungry heading through the bars and discos until late at night.

The disco "Silver Bulett" with live music is great for dancing, and the party is on in many apres ski bars and pubs, such as "Joe's Bar". You can enjoy an amazing view while sipping on a tasty cocktail directly above the alpine thermal bath, in the "Sky Bar".

Both of the large thermal springs promise relaxation, as does the spa centre. Numerous activities such as tobogganing, curling, winter hikes or ice skating are also offered during the day - you're certain to find just the right thing! In the evening you are offered more action on the 2.5 km night toboggan "Bellevue Alm".

History interested guests can visit the Klammstein Castle at the valley entrance, offering an exhibition about development of the castle. Families shouldn't miss out on a trip to the fortress, either: A ghostly tour is offered for the small thriller fans.

Snowpark: Bad Gastein

Located in the ski area Gastein is the "Snowpark Gastein", which is shaped by Q-Parks, just like many other top parks in the Alps. From Bad Gastein you can reach the park via the Stubnerkogel lift and from Bad Hofgastein you can take the Angertal lift. On an altitude of approx. 1,900 m the snow park offers 3 different areas with countless obstacles.

In the spacious beginner area there are 2 boxes, butter boxes, and 4 kickers. In the medium area advanced riders can show their skills on boxes, kickers (up to 9 m), rails, tubes, as well as a jib zone with pyramid and wall ride spine. The advanced area for pros comprises a challenging set up with an 11 m picknicker jib, 12 m kicker, and a 15 m down/flat/down box, as well as many other obstacles.

Those who would just like to watch will have a great view of the area from the "Stubneralm" at the lower end of the park. Further freestyle adventures can be found in the "Absolut Park" and "The Stash" at the Shuttleberg in Flachauwinkl, where you have access to a super-pipe, jib park, or natural obstacles.
