Sportgastein is supposed to be the Gastein valley’s “high mountain” resort with the most reliable snow conditions (although it’s only three hundred metres higher than the Hohe Scharte at Bad Hofgastein)

Small ski area: one lift, with a couple of runs each side. Pleasant open red pistes above the middle stations; short but steep black runs below the middle station, that I found icy and difficult in current conditions.

Half hour bus ride from Bad Gastein through the narrow, wild and spectacular upper Gastein valley.

Here’s an informative roundup of the different Gasteinertal ski areas, by somebody who clearly knows the region far better than I do.
