NON STOP TO THE TOP is the motto in Gastein, because in this valley you can use mountain railroads on 4 different mountains, overcome more than 1000 meters of altitude and enjoy long downhill runs. With only one mountain ride you get directly to the highest mountain station. In all Gastein ski areas, which belong to the Ski amadé region, you can reach the very top comfortably and without changing trains.
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.
