The Gastein skiing area has over 200 kilometres of slopes which lie at altitudes of up 2.700 m above sea level. Skiers of all levels of ability are in their element here: beginners, experienced, skiers, boarders and carvers alike. The varying difficulty levels of the slopes show that there are slopes which suit all abilities: 60 km easy, 117 km moderately difficult and 24 km tough slopes; family runs carving slopes, deep snow and mogul pistes - all waiting to be discovered.
Sportgastein is ideal for winter early birds and sunshine skiers thanks to investments made in a snow-making system. Now excellent pite conditions are guaranteed, mostly from November till spring!
Freestyle fans already know the Gastein snowpark in the "Stubnermulde" on the "Stubnerkogel", just opened last winter. This is the place for fun and action, a perfect set-up attended to daily for the duration of the season.
In the Gastein valley there's fun and relaxation for all the family.
Learning to ski is now much easier thanks to the extended practice runs in the "Bucheben" arena (only 150 m from the hotel) and in the "Angertal" ski centre. Here things are geared to the needs of junior skiers. Kids can spend the whole day at the ski kindergarten, cared for by competent instructors - the ideal basis for first skiing attempts!
Have fun on your family holiday in the region of Salzburg!
Après Ski - Bellevue Alm
A really skiing day in the Gastein valley doesn't have to end when the lifts stop running.

Schlossalm - Angertal - Stubnerkogel860 - 2.300 above sea level
This is the biggest connected skiing area. Ski runs with altitude differences of over 1.000 m bring lots of variation to your winter sports fun - perfectly networked with modern lifts and cable railways. For beginners we recommend the "Judaulift" in the "Angertal" ski centre. A favourite run is the „Hohe Scharte Nord“, 8 km long and with 1.440m altitude difference; one of the longest runs in the Eastern Alps.
1.590 - 2.650 above sea levelHere in the highest skiing area particularly sporting skiers are in their element. Skiers dreams become reality, as soon as the snow conditions permit them to adventure off-piste - when powder or better still, hard-packed snow is on the ground. A special hint: ski routes 1 and 2 - loads of choice for skiers. After skiing down one thousand altitude metres of deep snow or moguls you come back to valley level in Sportgastein.
Graukogel1.079 - 2.007 above sea level
The "Graukogel" is a real challenge for experienced skiers with its long, difficult runs. Most of the runs are in wooded areas and therefore sheltered from the wind, giving skiers a better orientation even in conditions of poor visibility. The only drawback is: there is no direct lift connection to the other skiing areas.
Dorfgastein - Großarltal850 - 2.003 m above sea level
Gastein valleys' first ski circuit offers diverse family-friendly downhill runs, maximum comfort with the cable cars and lifts and a unique, hearty and down-to-earth atmosphere at the ski lodges. A ride in the summit lift - "Fulseck" will take you to the highest point of the Dorfgastein ski circuit– Großarltal. From Fulseck you have the most stunning panorama view from the "Großglockner" to the "Dachstein".

This is great fun for all ages. The run is kept in an excellent condition. You go down the well-maintained toboggan and back again to the Bellevue Alm and Schiefen Alm with our privat chair lift.
Tobogganing with a group of people is real fun, especially on the floodlit run when night has fallen.
For those who can't get enough of the fun or who require a drop of Dutch courage and warming-up, the Bellevue Alm has an open fire and delicious mulled wine.
By the way: Toboggans can be rented from the summit station.
Snowshoe HikingOpen or Close
Snowshoe hikingIf you love peace and tranquility and the solitude of nature on your winter holiday, then snowshoe hiking is the right choice: a combination of gentle fitness and intensive nature experience!
Those who have already worn featherlight snowshoes will know their benefits. They allow you to hike through deep snow to the summits, usually only reached by backcountry ski hikers. Once you get to the top you are rewarded with a magnificent panorama.
Guided snow shoe tours are organised throughout the winter in the Gastein valley; trudging tuphill through the glittering snow on sunny slopes. Here the only other footsteps you will discover are those of the woodland animals.
