Sportgastein, the highest glacier-free ski area has long been known as a freeride El Dorado. More and more freeriders are coming to Gastein. The countless freeride runs, as well as the official ski routes make freeriders' hearts beat faster.
Adrenaline junkies looking for challenges and who love deep powder skiing are in exactly the right place at the highest ski area in the region. In both powder and spring snow, you can venture off the slopes and start your skiing adventure in the freeride area. But the prepared slopes also have a lot to offer. In addition, there is a fantastic mountain panorama to admire.
