Fantastic slopes - really good range of red slopes that are nice and wide! The Gastein valley and the different areas are within close proximity, which means there is a lot of skiing that can be done. Some of the blue pistes are busy which means they can become quite slushy and bumpy at times. A good place for intermediate skiers

I have been skiing for over 30 years and I have never come across such steep blue runs!! I found it very intimidating, especially if someone was a novice or nervous skier, thinking that they should be ok on a blue run. On the plus side, the runs were well groomed, the lift system was excellent and you can get to other areas and have a full day. But those blues.........

Not for beginners, but a great place to ski. The runs are tough, no doubt about it, but good. If you cant handle tough reds or blacks, go elsewhere though

Bad Hofgastein has a major upgrade at Schlossalmbahn, replaced the ancient funicular railway. Queuing at the base station is virtually non-existent. The base station is a new built, including a high standard ski depot, bus station, car parking, toilet facilities, cafe/bar/restaurant and the step-free access to the 10 person telecabin. As a ski area, Bad Hofgastein has a reasonable number of runs. It is connected to Angertal and Bad Gastein further. The red H1/H2 is a long run, dropping some 1400m. Most runs above midstation level are in very good condition, some challenging. The home runs into Bad Hofgastein could be icy and steep in places. Lift system and connections are good. Signage on piste could be better. Grooming is good in general but not to the highest standard. Ski huts and restaurants in Bad Hofgastein are mostly in mid run locations, slightly inconvenient for tired legs and non-skiing visitors. It is very easy to bus up to Dorfgastein. Bad Hofgastein is a good base for a week skiing.

Our first ski experience in Austria was in Bad Hofgastein. It is a verry good choice to enjoy ski. Superior satisfaction, regard ski posibilities a lot of slopes, for any level. Bad Hofgastein is a nice and peacefull village. Well organized public transportation, free parking at ski center, not crowdy on the slopes. We could ski in all ski areas in the zone with same ski pass. Recomand
