Bad Gastein Resort Details

The ski resort of Bad Gastein is near the top of the Gastein Valley. Once an old spa town this area has become an excellent ski resort. The centre of the town is widely spread but still compact through the middle. It is a very steep town centre, so exploring can be a challenge. The gondola in the town will take you to the Stubnerkogel area of slopes or you can travel across the town to the chair lift to Graukogel. Local buses connect you from the village to the lift stations. Bad Gastein is a good ski resort for most levels of skier and has more reliable snow as it is higher than some other Austrian resorts. The slopes are nice and open above the trees, but you can also ski through the trees in the lower parts. Bad Gastein has 44 lifts and 201km of piste.

Après ski in Bad Gastein
