Ski tours in Bad Hofgastein
Diverse as nature, so the ski tours are presented in the Gastein Valley. From simple trips for pleasure, to difficult mountain tours for professionals, there is something for everyone. However, stable snow conditions apply for all coupled with ski touring experience and your own skills.
Just as at the end of the 19th century, for the ski-tours there were no lifts in Sportgastein. Popular and versatile, the trips offer pristine powder which makes the effort worthwhile. For steep slopes, however, care is required to avoid being buried by an avalanche. Especially in spring there is the chance of a 'Firn' during a tour in the Gastein valley. From Kalkbretterkopf up to the Ankogel, the Gadaunerer Hochalm at 1000m to 2688m of altitude on the Kreuzkogel, the selection of detailed tours is huge. The ski tour to the Kalkbretterkopf (2412m) is certainly one of the highlights. Fantastic views of the mountain peaks in the Gastein valley - the Goldberg and Ankogel range. Winter landscapes and unspoilt nature in one of the most beautiful regions of Austria.
A powder-experience awaits you with a ski tour on the Kreuzkogel in Sportgastein. Many ascents take you to 2688m above sea level. After the climb, you can expect a special pleasure gliding on pristine slopes of the valley. A true secret is skiing the Tüchlwand in the Goldberg range. Completely in open terrain, through untouched nature, it goes up to 2577m altitude. Alternatively,in poor snow conditions you can stay on the Schloßalm. In the newly built Gipfelkreuz you experience unforgettable panoramic views over the Gastein valley. A very popular tour is the ski tour to Graukogel in Gastein. A steep rise calls for athleticism at the beginning, however, a visit to the Graukogel hut compensates for the hardships. The summit offers a wonderful view of Bad Hofgastein.
