Sport Gastein in particular is a mecca for powder lovers. The long vertical descents are accessed by just one gondola and deliberately left un-groomed after fresh snow-falls right up to over 2,600m.
Lower down the valley you will find plenty of family-friendly, tree-lined runs that meander down back to resort. In the spring, the mountain restaurants are the last port of call with their large outdoor sun terraces making an ideal place to unwind with a drink after a hard day on the piste.
