Alpine and cross country skiing in Gastein

Beginner or advanced – Gastein has the perfect conditions for every skier and snowboarder.
200km of excellently prepared pistes offer diversity and pure skiing fun.

Gastein is one of the most attractive ski areas in the Salzburg province.
There are deep powder and mogul pistes, carving slopes, free ride and family runs, around 50 cable cars, chair lifts and other lifts, snow guarantee from end of November until beginning of May, rustic ski huts, fun centres, special attractions … for the perfect ski holiday.

There are four ski resorts in Gastein:

  • Stubnerkogel-Angertal-Schlossalm
    Largest connected skiing area. Downhill runs with over l, 000m difference in altitude promise varied piste fun – perfectly connected with modern lifts and cable cars. Ideal for skiing pleasure!

  • Dorfgastein-Großarl
    The first "Schischaukel" of the Gasteinertal offers a diverse family-friendly supply of varied descents, from the beginner to the expert, high comfort with modern cable railway- and lift facilities and an unique, particularly ethnic ski huts-atmosphere.

  • Graukogel
    The Graukogel is a challenge for top skiers with its long difficult downhill runs. Most of the runs lead through forests and therefore are sheltered from wind and allows good orientation on days when visibility is poor.
    The only drawback: there is no lift connection to the other skiing areas.

  • Höhenskigebiet Sportgastein
    Highest situated skiing area. Sportgastein is the village, where sporty types feel at home. Skier's dreams become true, as soon as the snow conditions allow the leaving of the carpet of prepared pistes – as well as in powder snow or on crispy spring snow.
