Bad Gastein

Ski info
  • Ski area

    The Gastein region is home to several different ski villages such as Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein. The Schlossalm and Stubnerkogel mountains are where the majority of the skiing in Gastein can be found, though there are 3 more areas to pick from that can all be accessed from Bad Gastein by car, bus, or even by foot. 

    In the Schlossalm and Stubnerkogel ski area there are some excellent blue and red runs that can provide a healthy challenge for intermediate skiers. Most runs tend to be quite long, meaning less lift time and more ski time! In fact, this ski area connects Bad Hofgastein and Bad Gastein with a myriad of long sweeping runs that provide some great views – some routes are up to around 10km and will lead you all the way down to the towns. 

    For beginners, the best skiing is found towards Bad Hofgastein around the Angertal ski centre, though there are several beginner slopes around Bad Gastein as well. Advanced skiers and snowboarders can rest easy knowing that they will have plenty to get themselves (and their edges!) stuck into. If they want to look further afield, then Gastein is one of the ski areas under the Ski Amadé area which includes resorts like Schladming – so there is more than enough skiing to do, even before hiring a guide to show you all the available off-piste!

    The resort

    Gastein is one of the five regions that make up the Ski Amadé area and can be easily accessed from Salzburg Airport in just under 90 minutes. The Ski Amadé area is in fact the second largest ski area in Europe, and the biggest in Austria. Therefore, you know you are going to be able to find some great skiing and we have the perfect spot for you to set up basecamp – Bad Gastein. 

    An old Austrian spa town, Bad Gastein is famous for its natural spa treatments – such as radon therapy and the unique Gastein healing cave. Bad Gastein is more urban than its neighbouring towns and villages, but still has a certain charm and beauty that attracts so many people to the area. Towards the centre of the town is the original spa area, but higher up the mountain (and closer to the lift stations) is a more modern area which has plenty of accommodation.

    Apart from spa treatments and thermal baths (and the skiing of course), there is plenty more to do and experience around Bad Gastein and the surrounding area. One of these is the 140 metre suspension bridge at the top of the Stubnerkogelbahn. Suspended over a 28-metre-deep chasm and looking out across some of the most incredible views of the Austrian Alps, this is an amazing experience. For those not quite brave enough, take a look from the Glockner View panorama platform for a full 360-degree view of the stunning scenery.
