Bad Gastein (1,000 m altitude) is one of the three towns in the 40 km long Gastein Valley, along with Bad Hofgastein and smaller Dorfgastein. The 200 km of ski runs are part of the larger Amade ski area which your ski pass covers.

The four main ski areas are: Stubnerkogel-Angertal-Schlossalm that links Bad Gastein with Bad Hofgastein; Graukogel, a smaller area on the other side of the town; Sportgastein further up the valley and Dorfgastein-Großarl further down the valley. There are shuttle buses and trains around and beyond the valley to take you where you want to go that day, though having a car can help if you are planning to ski further afield.

Ideal for intermediates who like challenging red runs, Bad Gastein is perhaps not best suited to complete beginners. Freeride skiers should head to Sportgastein which offers some of the finest off piste skiing in the Alps (and the highest point in the Amade ski area at 2,686 m). It is also a popular destination for snowboarders thanks to it being a fixture on the snowboard world cup circuit, and the large snowpark. Night skiing is popular on the Stubnerkogel run down to Bad Gastein.

The resort itself is not a traditional Alpine village, but an elegant spa town cut into the mountainside with steep streets, glamorous Belle Epoque buildings and a 200 m waterfall. The thermal waters still draw people to the resort, and many like to visit the Felsentherme spa or the famous healing gallery, where the high concentration of radon is said to have beneficial properties.

Après ski

There are numerous bars on and off the piste here for après ski, and a lively nightlife. There is also a night toboggan run and of course plenty of thermal spas to relax in.
