Ski touring in Austria

The Gastein Valley: a ski touring hotspot

The Gastein Valley has plenty of ski touring routes for those who enjoy going up as well as down. Bad Gastein is the starting point for a number of tours up to the Graukogel and Stubnerkogel. Dorfgastein is also a popular place from which the Fulseck can be explored on skis. On certain days of the week, visitors can even hike along the slopes at night, on full-moon tours for example.

Alpine power to the top

More and more people are choosing ski touring over the classic slopes. The feeling you get when reaching a peak after putting in so much effort is simply indescribable. You are also closer to nature than ever before and can immerse yourself fully in the winter scenery. The smooth rhythm of gliding and climbing strengthens the muscles and cardiovascular system and increases fitness. Combined with the perfect tranquility and unspoiled landscape, it can also reduce stress and can have a liberating effect on the soul. Breathtaking views and a snack at the summit are the icing on your ski touring cake and make it all worthwhile.

Afterwards, enjoy the release of endorphins as you ski down pristine powder-snow slopes. The 40km long Gastein Valley offers snow-covered mountainsides left and right that invite you to enjoy unforgettable ski touring and downhill skiing in powder snow during an activity holiday in Austria.
