The extensive Gasteinertal ski area is one of the largest in Austria - you need almost never ski the same piste twice in a week on its superb slopes!

Suitable for intermediates and advanced

Bad Hofgastein

An unsung hero of the Austrian Alps, the resort of Bad Hofgastein offers miles and miles of beautifully groomed slopes. It’s a great option for serious snow buffs looking to try somewhere new, and with over 200 prepared pistes on offer here, we are sure you won’t be disappointed. The resort of Bad Hofgastein is famous as much for its outstanding natural thermal springs as its world-class skiing. It’s a relatively quiet resort with a relaxed informal approach to après ski, yet has a bustling pedestrianised centre with cobbled streets and a fantastic choice of bars, restaurants and other amenities - not forgetting to mention its famous spas.

Something for Everybody

There’s something for everybody on the pistes; the gentle nursery slopes at Angertal provide an ideal introduction for beginners from where they can progress on to the gentle blue runs on the Schlossalm or Stubnerkogel.
For intermediates, this is ski-your-heart-out country! Bad Hofgastein offers a huge variety of red and blue runs, which are linked to the nearby resort of Bad Gastein to form one large skiable area. In addition, the Gastein valley has a further 3 ski areas, offering total of 250kms of well groomed, often quiet, pistes which are linked by the efficient and frequent ski bus service that runs throughout the resorts, and is covered by your lift pass.
Advanced skiers will love the testing runs on the Stubnerkogel and a there are a couple of fantastic blacks to try out on the Graukogel, as well as the highest sector of the ski area above Sport Gastein, which has a base at 1600 metres and a snow-sure top lift at 2685m.

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer from Salzburg Airport to the hotel is approximately 2 hours, depending on weather and traffic.

Skiing Programme
You may either take group ski lessons, private ski lessons or form groups to enjoy exploring the slopes together. Whatever you preference your Tour Leader will be available to help organise your skiing.

Ski Hire
Poor piste conditions can be hazardous to ski equipment as uncovered rocks and stones can easily scratch and damage skis and snowboards. We strongly recommend you inspect your ski hire equipment at the start of your holiday and agree the state of their condition with the ski hire suppliers, as clients are responsible for the care of their hired equipment and should this equipment be damaged the ski hire suppliers are within their rights to ask for a compensation payment.

Ski Equipment
This can be hired in the resort where you will be advised about the most suitable equipment for your standard of skiing. It is very important to have ski boots that are comfortable and fit well, so do not be afraid to keep going back and changing your boots until you get a good fit. For your safety, we advise that you wear a ski helmet wherever possible.

Ski Passes
6 day adult € 266

Ski School
Adults 5 days: € 225 approx (4hrs per day)

Ski & Boot Hire
Adult 6 days €155 approx (standard equipment)

Dress Code
On a skiing holiday, dress is generally very informal, the emphasis being on comfort and warmth. We recommend that you pack a pair of skiing trousers and warm ski jacket or a waterproof shell and separate fleece lining or an all-in-one ski suit. Thermal or silk underwear is recommended. Cotton/cotton mix roll necks, T-shirts or sweat shirts; several thin layers are better than one thick layer. Ski socks, ski gloves or mitts and a hat or headband are suggested. Where temperatures are expected to be well below zero, take a facemask or balaclava. Moon boots or waterproof walking shoes are a “must”. Suntan cream (high protective factor), lip salve, sunglasses and/or goggles are all very useful items to pack. Casual clothes are ideal for the evenings; it is unusual on skiing holidays to dress formally in the evenings.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on. If you choose to have ski lessons, you may also like to thank your ski instructor at the end of the week with a token of appreciation.
