Bad Gastein in winter is a paradise. It’s everything that snow lovers’ dream of. Really. We have four extensive interconnected ski areas up to 2,700 metres in altitude, with over 200 kilometres of panoramic pistes, all perfectly groomed. There are 60km of easy runs, 117km of medium difficulty and 24km of demanding runs. Everyone will find their measure of skiing pleasure here - professional to beginner.
When covered in deep snow the mountain scenery of the Hohe Tauern is an unforgettable panorama. You will be spoilt for choice with over 100 km of well-groomed winter hiking trails
Snowshoes are the ideal alternative for getting away from the hustle and bustle of the pistes. Using them is very intuitive and it’s easy to learn. The most impressive routes are best seen with a guide – borrow the snowshoes, join one our recommended guides and get out there.
Tobogganing. Tummy tingles. Never stop laughing. The Bellevue Alm toboggan run is pure nostalgia. Try night tobogganing with a stop for refreshments.
