One valley, four ski areas - here, there are just so many choices! Regardless of where you decide to begin, you'll quickly discover a mountain destined to become your personal favorite. That said, all of the other ski areas are definitely worth paying a visit to as well, and they're all just a few minutes away by car or using the ski bus. Whenever there's barely any snow on the ground in other ski areas, Sportgastein is the place to be, thanks to its high elevations and natural snow in abundance. Which also makes it one of hottest freeride meccas anywhere in the Alps.
But you definitely don't have to be a skier in order to enjoy winter in Gastein to the max. Put on some warm clothes and step out into the crystal-clear air. Go tobogganing, or perhaps ice skating with your whole family. As you stroll along the Kaiser Wilhelm Promenade in Bad Gastein, you'll probably be accompanied by a few curious squirrels. Happen to have a handful of nuts in your pocket to share with your furry friends?
With over 200 kilometers of pistes just waiting for you, fun is virtually guaranteed! And if you prefer not to, you never have to ski the same piste twice. So, what are you waiting for? It's time to hop out of bed and hit the slopes!
