Winter in Badgastein
Skiing.....snowboarding.....snow and more snow....
Sportsgastein is the highest (2700 m) of the ski runs in the area, being at the top of the main Gastein valley. It is snow-sure until the very end of the season in May. It offers the best off-piste skiing and is rewarding in it’s scenic snow bowl-like setting.
Stübnerkögel (left in pic) is the main ski area above Bad Gastein.
Stubnerkogel offers extensive skiing and also has a snow park and a suspension bridge for a vertiginous walk across the valley!
