Bad Hofgastein

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.

Gastein Valley

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.
