into the spa
The Ski World Cup in 1958 laid the foundation for the Gastein Valley as "two seasons" - a tourist location - since when the boom began in earnest in the Gastein Valley as a ski destination! And so it is as the brilliant Austrian Austro Popper said almost 40 years ago "skiing is cool...".
Knock yourself out - the more than 250 kilometers of modern developed runs in the beautiful Gastein valley offer a relaxed weekend or, even better, a whole week of availability! Fun for the whole family on more than 250 km of slopes!
The great thing about Gastein - there are 4 ski areas - which, depending on the skiers skill and weather conditions offer pure skis or board enjoyment, on prepares pistes or - for the sportsfans - off-piste. This guarantees relaxation and fun for the whole family - 60 easy kilometers, 117 medium and 24 for the strong skiers and boarders. Whether Schlossalm - Angertal - Stubnerkogel, this is the largest connected ski resort with more than 1,000 m altitude differential. Or Dorfgastein - Großarl with a fabulous panoramic view or Sportgastein with the really deep snowy slopes up to 2,650 meters above sea level!
Higher - faster - further - these are superlatives of this day and age - naturally, when it comes to leisure! The Gastein valley is more than sufficient in winter for even the highest demands - so when more than 250 perfectly maintained and groomed kilometres of pistes are not enough, the whole of the Ski Amadé network with its legendary 900 kilometers downhill runs are available. Ski Amade is 5 top ski areas - together they form the Amadé ski area and thus provide real added value for all those counting on skiing and snowboarding in the no.1 winter sports region! With a ticket you have access to almost 300 ultra-modern lifts for fun on 900 km of slopes - of course for all abilities! In no other region of the Alps is there a similar abundance of choice on offer in such a small, confined space - with guaranteed snow!
And besides pure nature of course high-tech must not be forgotten: The Ski Amadé Guide app for iPhone and Android also brings us to a whole new level: The focus is on a ski navigation system - so to speak, a GPS for skiers: This suggests matching routes and so is with you all the way through the day (based on the skills of the user - this must be defined before the start) therefore you can concentrate fully on the skiing itself! All suggestions are tailored to the skill of the user, the physical condition and - most importantly - the weather and season - so you do not get lost in one of the largest ski resorts in Europe. And with free Wi-Fi you really get to use the app where you need it - on the slopes and the ski lift!
Why is skiing in the Gastein Valley an absolute no-brainer? The personal atmosphere does it - AND everything around of course! Whether ski-hire, the chance of absolutely safe and, on request, skitours, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing course over 45 kilometers of trails - what more does the ski heart want? From experience we know in the Gastein valley that maximum slope-time is one side of the coin - on the other side the guest wants to forget the stresses of everyday life and not experience this on the slopes (neither before and after). In all the hype the guest is really keen to implement the concept of wellness and relaxation - and here you really are in the Gastein Valley and in the Spa Hotels Gastein!
The complete package is here - service, entertainment and action where you want - peace, relaxation & spa where you need it - the guest has the choice and no agonising over it - this means skiing in the Gastein Valley. So with a visit to Europe's largest health and wellness oasis, the Alpine Spa Gastein, after a day of skiing, nothing can stand in your way! See for yourself and immerse yourself in a slightly different dimension of skiing in Austria and enjoy the all-round pampering at the Spa Hotels Gastein.
