On 16 and 17 April 2022, when the palm trees sway gently in the wind and Caribbean sounds emanate from the ski huts in Sportgastein, the highest ski area in the Ski amadé. When colourful cocktails stand next to deckchairs in the snow, then it's that time again: "Palmen auf den Almen" goes into the next round! The winter event in the Gasteinertal is not only a popular annual fixture among friends of sun skiing in Austria. People who enjoy the sun and sun worshippers also usually have this event on their calendar well in advance.
No wonder: the snow glistens in the sun, the green palm trees offer a charming contrast to the deep blue winter sky. The deckchairs are perfect for relaxing after a fulfilling day on the slopes of Sportgastein. And the Caribbean joie de vivre, that's infectious anyway. A winter holiday like in a picture book!
Skiing in Austria in March with a difference: Welcome to palms on the alpine pastures in Gastein!
