Bike fans, this is for you! You no longer have to live without your favorite sport during the winter months!
Are you the kind of person who loves to get out on your mountain bike in summer, then you switch to a pair of skis in winter? If so, why not combine both and try your hand at snowbiking during your vacation in Gastein? In Gastein, you have a great opportunity to race down the piste on a snowbike. A snowbike has runners rather than tires, while you will have small skis under your feet to provide additional stability as you ride elegantly down the mountainside. Initially, turning feels a little unusual and is quite a balancing act, but for experienced bikers snowbiking is relatively intuitive and you'll pick up the sport quickly. After just a few runs, you will have assimilated the skills you need to be able to carve, brake and stop on your snowbike. Snowbiking is also a great alternative for non-skiers. As soon as you feel confident riding downhill faster, you'll begin to feel the adrenaline pumping through your veins. Snowbikers are welcome on all the pistes, and you can transport your bike on all of the lifts. If you need assistance getting started in this new sport, we'd suggest booking an introductory course through one of Gastein's snow sports schools. So, let's go!
