Skiing in Sportgastein
Sportgastein is the highest ski area in Ski amadé with an altitude of 1,590-2,650 metres. Due to its high alpine location, it offers ideal conditions for powder snow and guaranteed snow into spring. A skier's dream awaits here with a grandiose panorama of the surrounding mountain landscape in the Hohe Tauern National Park.
Freeride in Sportgastein
Sportgastein is the place where the sporty types are at home. With perfect snow conditions - powder, deep snow and firn - you can leave the pistes and start your skiing adventure in the freeride terrain.
Special tip: With the three marked ski routes Golden Powder, Golden Rush and Golden Ride, you can discover Gastein's sportiest ski area off-piste. After about 1,000 metres of altitude and powder fun or mogul slope dreams, you end up on the valley floor of Sportgastein. Deep snow as far as the eye can see!
Please pay attention to the warning signs and barriers!
Freeride Info Base
At the top station there is a freeride checkpoint where you can check the functionality of your avalanche transceiver and find out about the current avalanche level and all the relevant information before you go freeriding. In Sportgastein there is also a Pieps station and a Freeride Info Base.
There is a large avalanche search field in the immediate vicinity of the Goldbergbahn valley station. Here, ski guests can train for an emergency with a guide. Guided off-piste tours are available at the annual X-Perience Day with the Freeride Gastein team and on request.
