Why take your school ski trip to Bad Gastein?
Prior to evolving into a ski resort, Bad Gastein was famous as a spa town (‘Bad’ = ‘Bath’). As a result is quite built up in comparison to other resorts, but it retains some beautiful historical architecture and you can still visit the spa.
The skiing is excellent with most of the pistes on open slopes and with over 200km to explore there’s skiing and boarding for all abilities.
