Famous for its magnificent panorama and its thrilling freeride hotspots, the Gasteiner valley has rapidly made its mark within the scene of snowboarders and freeskiers. Up at Stubnerkogel, they find unique pistes and the Snowpark Gastein.

The Snowpark is well-known for its absolute freestyle action on a length of 300 meters. Basti Adam, Gastein's new park designer puts his signature to the parks' features to care for its creativity and precision. 38 obstacles are waiting for the winter season to kick-off and you can look forward to various rails, tubes, kickers, jibs and boxes. The park offers the right line not only for beginners but also for advanced shredheads.
As odd 40 features will keep you pretty occupied for the day, even the fittest riders need a break from time to time. After you have enjoyed a great session at the snowpark, you will seek a calm and relaxing atmosphere in one of the thermal spa facilities on site. To gather energy after sauna visit, you are even left with the chance to roll back and forth in the snow. Now you’re perfectly prepared to swarm the après-ski hotspot Bad Gastein.
Talking about music: On the 28th of February those craving for good sounds on the mountain are more than welcome at the Snowpark Gastein, when the official SnowTunes party takes place. Don't worry, there is absolutely no chance to listen to the "famous" après-ski songs „Hey Baby” and „Bright Red Rubber Boat“. Instead, there will be bouncing beats going on, accompanying your moves in the park or when dancing along the barbecue.
