Bad Gastein Ski and Snowboard Resort
Bad Gastein is situated in the middle of the National Park Hohe Tauern, at 1000 metres above sea level, in fresh mountain air.
The characteristic charm of this beautiful village, the buildings from the “Belle Epoque” era, harmonise in the natural surroundings. An international health resort with a unique atmosphere - relax and rest in pure mountain air, combined with the ideal climate altitude, and Gastein’s thermal water, guarantees a very special holiday for sophisticated guests!
In Bad Gastein you will find the ideal offer for a holiday together with friends and family, even when there is a difference in interests.
The Ski Area
The gentle nursery slopes at Angertal provide an ideal introduction for beginners, who will quickly progress onto the easy blues of the Schlossalm area. In Bad Gastein the nursery slopes are next to the main gondola and beginners will then progress on to the Stubnerkogel.
This is ski-your-heart-out country! The Gastein valley region features 5 extensive ski areas: Bad Gastein, Bad Hofgastein, Dorfgastein, Sportgastein and Grau Kogel - offering 250kms of challenging and well groomed pistes.
The fearsome long black from the Jungeralm and the local Kamikaze racing run from Graukogel to Bad Gastein are undoubted favourites. There are also some testing runs on the Stubnerkogel. The off-piste can be fantastic too - why not hire a guide and head to the spectacular, scenic, off-piste route from Kreuzkogel to Heilstollen, or one of the many other routes in the area.
These two resorts form part of one of Austria's largest rideable areas with over 100 miles of piste. For freestylers there is a well maintained half-pipe and snowboard park to keep you happy and plenty of natural hits around.
On previous years we have enjoyed trips to St Antons and Ischel.
