The Gasteinertal, Skiing &...

The ski system of the Gasteinertal is extensive although not entirely joined up. A free bus service provides the missing link. The main Stubnerkogel/Schlossalm area is accessed from both Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein, a second area Graukogel is also accessed from Bad Gastein. A smaller area is accessed from Sportgastein and above Dorfgastein another large area links with Grossarl in the next valley. The valley is suitable for all levels of rider as long as you don’t mind walking or taking a bus to the lifts. This is worth considering if you have small children or beginners who may be put off by this.

Beginners will find plenty of places throughout the valley where they can begin their sliding careers. Although, they may be put off by the need to walk or catch a bus to them. However, once they have found their feet the Schlossalm offers the best terrain for improvers.

The vast majority of terrain in the Gastein valley is suited to intermediates who will find challenges aplenty in each sector. There is enough locally to keep most intermediates entertained for at least a week. Although, the Skiverbund Amade lift pass gives riders access to a total of 860kms of marked piste and includes resorts such as Schladming and Flachau. However, a car would be required in order to reasonably check these resorts out.

Advanced riders who like to take their pleasure off-piste will simply be spoiled here with routes descending from almost every peak. It’s highly recommended that you higher a guide and make the most of this off-piste gold mine.
