Skiing in Grossarl Austria

grossarl ski resort

Grossarl is the main settlement in the Grossarltal - a relatively undeveloped valley on the other side of the mountain range from the more renowned Gastein valley. It connects via the ski area to the Dorfgastein skiing.

The valley is known as the "valley of the alms" (alms are mountain pastures in Austria, or the huts on those pastures) and the name gives an idea of the unspoilt country atmosphere awaiting visitors here.

Elevation: 920 metres

Location: 5611 Grossarl - Salzburg - Austria

The remote Grossarl valley was originally settled by farmers looking for land to graze their animals. The main village of Grossarl grew rapidly with the expansion of the mining in the Middle Ages, but also suffered badly from outbreaks of the plague and from poverty.

Once the main road into the valley was built, winter and summer tourism expanded and the Grossarl/Dorfgastein ski area is now one of the most pleasant and unspoilt areas to sample in this part of the province of Salzburg.

Most of the hotels in the valley are at the base of the lifts in Grossarl, or in one of the nearby villages such as Eben, Au or Hüttschlag.

The Grossarl ski area ascends the Unterberg to the Kreuzkogel and Fulseck, at an altitude of just over 2000m. The ski area connects into the area above Dorfgastein on the other side of the mountain range.
