I ski for 5 days, I can say that the tracks are well maintained. For my luck I had sun and snow every day. It was a great experience. Recommends over 160 km of tracks

Except of old funicular coming from Bad Hofgastein (where you easily spend 40 minutes during morning, waiting in a line), everything is nice. Functioning not crowded, big variety of slopes, everybody will find his/her favourite ones. Dorfgastein ski resort (8 km by car from Hofgastein)...More

Excellent resort for experienced skiers that enjoy cruising wide friendly red pistes. Not for beginners, even the ski schools find difficulty in finding easier slopes. Apres ski is limited, enough bars and restaurants, but could not be described as lively.

Nursery slopes in angletal are great to get the ski legs going. Once you get going the blue runs in both bad gastein and hofgastein are wide enough for beginners. Dorfgastein 20mins down the valley on the ski bus also offers... More
