Four Ski Areas, Three Communities, One Valley - ski holiday in Gastein

Dorfgastein, the first town in the valley, offers several pistes on Fulseck mountain. If you cross the summit of the Kreuzkogel, you can actually ski all the way to Grossarl, which is over in the neighboring valley. The towns of Bad Hofgastein and Bad Gastein are interconnected via the Schlossalm-Angertal-Stubnerkogel ski area. You can also slice down the slopes of the Graukogel in Bad Gastein. For its part, the Sportgastein ski area will lead you up beyond 2,686 meters. Because of that high elevation, the piste conditions are always very good, even in warm temperatures. You can find the map for the skiarea in Gastein here. By the way: Did you know that Sportgastein is one of the Alps' absolute freeride hotspots?


Gastein is a winter sports paradise that offers skiers and snowboarders more fun than they ever dreamed possible! So don't wait and book your perfect ski holiday in Austria.

Time for a Break

As midday approaches, you'll be ready for a break at one of Gastein's ski huts. Sitting comfortably out on a sunny terrace, a freshly prepared schnitzel and a plate of apple strudel will quickly recharge your batteries. Later in the afternoon, after a few more runs down the mountain, your day of skiing will gradually draw to a close. Back in town, you might well decide to spend some time at one of the Gastein spa resorts. As you relax in the warm thermal water, enjoy the last rays of sunshine and sense how your tired muscles are beginning to recover, you can already begin looking forward to your next day of skiing, mulling over which of the numerous pistes in the Gastein ski area you are going to conquer next.

Sounds like a perfect day of skiing, right?
