The 4****Superior-Hotel CESTA GRAND is located in the middle of the Gastein valley, in front of a stunning mountain scenery. It is the ideal starting point for various activities in the snow. The focus is on downhill skiing, since Gastein’s high-alpine situation makes it a paradise for winter sports enthusiasts.
The Gastein ski resorts offer on 2,700 m above sea level pure winter pleasures. Well-groomed runs and wonderful deep-snow slopes which provide endless skiing fun: The Gastein valley is part of the Sports World amadé and offers 5-star skiing and snowboarding opportunities on more than 220 km of perfectly prepared pistes. In the Gastein valley ski region you will also find the East-Alps’ longest downhill run that is 11 km long and has an altitude difference of 1,440 m. Get quickly to the closest lift station, Stubnerkogel, by the hotel’s own or the public ski-bus.
Largest connected skiing area (860 – 2.300 m Altitude). Downhill runs with over l,000m difference in altitude promise varied piste fun – perfectly connected with modern lifts and cable cars. Ideal for skiing pleasure! We would recommend the practice area, Gasti Snowpark, in the skiing centre in the Angertal Valley for beginners. The suspension bridge on the Stubnerkogel with a length of 140 m holds in store a special kick for both hikers and skiers.
Skiing in Sportgastein: 1.590 – 2.650 m Altitude. Our special tip: ski route 1 + 2 with different options as far as you can see. After 1,000 m of deep powder snow or mogul slope you will reach Sportgastein on the bottom of the valley. Please pay attention to the warning signs and barriers.
With its long, advanced slopes the Graukogel is a true challenge for top skiers (1.079 – 2.007 m Altitude). Most of the slopes are in the forest area and therefore sheltered from the wind, so that even with poor sight you will have a good orientation.
The Gastein valley’s first interconnected ski area provides varied and family-friendly offers with diversified pistes for beginners and advanced skiers (850 – 2.033 m Altitude). Highest skiing comfort with state-of-the-art cable cars and lift facilities as well as a unique and very rustic ski hut atmosphere.
