By the way: The total transport capacity of all cable car systems in Gastein is an impressive number of 70.118 winter sports enthusiasts per hour!
Schlossalm - Angertal - Stubnerkogel | 860 - 2.300 m 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.
Sportgastein | 1.590 - 2.650 m above sea level
Here 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.
Graukogel | 1.079 - 2.007 m 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 - Großarltal | 850 - 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".
