Beyond the slopes with Skischule Gastein

Ski touring in Gastein valley

The Gastein valley is known as one of the most beautiful ski mountaineering regions in Salzburg. There are a variety of easy as well as challenging ski- and snowboard tours that will delight you. As state certified ski guides we show you the most beautiful places beyond the slopes. The reward for the arduous ascent is the gorgeous deep-snow downhill slopes.

Safety beyond the slopes

From the beginner’s tour to the alpine tour

Beginners and less experienced ski mountaineers in particular should only go beyond the slopes in the company of an experienced ski guide who can correctly assess both snow and weather. For that we offer ski mountaineering tours for beginners (about 4 hours) as well as high alpine ski tours (about 6 – 8 hours) for advanced and professionals. You can book your ski tours as private trips as well as group trip (max. 6 participants).
