860 – 2,300 m above sea level
The biggest interconnected ski area. Pistes with more than 1,000 m altitude difference provide varieties of skiing fun – perfectly interconnected with modern lift facilities and cable cars. Ideal for skiing enthusiasts. For beginners we recommend the Judaulift in the Angertal ski centre. The pendant bridge on the Stubnerkogel with a length of 140 m holds in store a special kick for both hikers and skiers.
1,590 – 2,650 m above sea level
Our special tip: ski route 1 + 2 with different options as far as you can see. After 1,000 m of deep powder snow or mogul slope you will reach Sportgastein on the bottom of the valley. Please pay attention to the warning signs and barriers.
1,079 – 2,007 m above sea level
With its long, advanced pistes the Graukogel is a true challenge for top skiers. Most of the slopes are in the forest area and therefore sheltered from the wind, so that even with poor sight you will have a good orientation. It is here where the legendary Toni Sailer won his world cup points and even today there are still world cup ski races taking place on the Graukogel.
850 – 2,003 m above sea level
The Gastein valley’s first interconnected ski area provides varied and family-friendly offers with diversified pistes for beginners and advanced skiers. Highest skiing comfort with state-of-the-art cable cars and lift facilities as well as a unique and very rustic ski hut atmosphere.
