Gaschurn is a picturesque place on the southern side of the Montafon. Over the years, the villages of Gaschurn and Partenen have grown together, and since then both are usually mentioned in the same breath. However, the village has retained its authentic appearance. The general price level is also a lot lower than in many other Austrian ski areas. This makes this area especially attractive for families with children. You will also find the typical Austrian atmosphere on the slopes here: a lot of excellent live music is played on the large sun terraces of the mountain restaurants.
From Gaschurn, there is a cable car connection to the Silvretta Montafon ski area. This is a stunning ski area, where both experienced winter sports enthusiasts and beginners can enjoy themselves.
Silvretta Montafon is located in the south of the popular Vorarlberg region and is one of the largest ski areas in the area. There are several separate mountains, which you can ski on with just one ski pass.
There is a wide range of beautiful slopes available for both beginners and advanced skiers. Thanks to its high location (1423m), Gargellen is one of the most snow-sure ski areas in Austria.
