In winter 200 kilometres of pistes in 4 ski areas will give you an appetite for winter sport and fun in the snow. Ski and snowboarding pleasure which is second to none is guaranteed on the best prepared ski runs in Gastein Valley. Yet there is also a winter wonderland away from the pistes: ice-climbing, horse-drawn sledge rides, snow-shoe hikes; you choose! After day with plenty of sunshine and adventure on the pistes, thoughts turn to sophisticated Après Ski in traditional Alpine huts, or in trendy bars. The thermal springs in Gastein Valley await connoisseurs with a varied range on offer for wellness and relaxation.
Ski pistes with the most varied levels of difficulty provide boundless skiing pleasure:
- 60 kilometres of easy pistes
- 117 kilometres of medium-difficulty pistes
- 24 kilometres of difficult ski runs
Carving routes, family runs, deep snow slopes and mogul pistes – these provide variety and challenge for a winter holiday in Gastein! Many of the winter hiking paths, which are well cleared, and the cross-country slopes which have a scenic charm, provide winter holiday pleasure away from the pistes. A fun toboggan ride or a snug trip on horse-drawn sleighs round off a day filled with adventure in the Gastein mountains. Snow-shoe hiking and ice-climbing are still sports which are in their infancy and make it possible for you to see the winter landscape of the Gastein Valley from a new perspective.
