Snowboard FIS World Cup in Gastein
Again this year the world’s best snowboarders will fight it out around hundredths of a second on the Buchebenwiese.
From 9 until 10 January 2016 we look forward to being able to welcome professional sportsmen and women to Gastein, and are already longing to watch the tightly contested duels.
ARt on Snow in Gastein valley
The ARt on Snow Festival is being staged again in the Gasteinertal. From 31 January to 6 February there will again be cool acts on the theme of art in the snow.
This winter the Gasteinertal near Salzburg is going to be home to many artists. Besides ice sculptors and photographers from the Alpine region, also international artists will create and show their works surrounded by an impressive mountain scenery. Skiers and snowboarders can even enjoy art while descending the slopes. The festival, where illuminated photographs and cool sculptures can be admired, takes place from 31st January to 6th February 2015 throughout Gasteinertal.
Atomic X-Perience Day in Sportgastein
The Gasteinertal is known as the top freeriding area. An absolute dream for freeriders is the legendary Sportgastein – the place to be –, where the pistes reach up to 2,700 m and the Backcountry is large and open.
Through the north-south alignment in the Hohe Tauern the area gets heavy snowfall again and again from both north and south. Irrespective of whether one is a beginner or an expert, Sportgastein offers the right spot for everyone.
In the context of the X-Perience Days there are guided off-piste tours. At 9.30. 11.30 and 13.30 hrs experienced guides from Freeride-Gastein await you outside the new Freeride Info Base at the Goldbergbahn mountain station. We recommend taking a rucksack with alpine emergency equipment and an LVS device (bleeper) when in the freeski area.
The latest freeride models from the Atomic Company can be tested on production of official ID.
The panorama in Sportgastein is unique. With a view onto the three-thousand-metre peaks of the Hohe Tauern and a DJ who ensures a relaxed and cool atmosphere on the mountain, it can only be a fantastic freeride day. The Atomic Ski company is making the latest freeride equipment available free of charge on 14 February 2016.
