Green thursday at the Graukogel

23.12.2023 - 31.03.2024

Every Thursday in the winter season 2023/24, there will be a sustainable "Green Thursday" at the Graukogel natural snow ski area.


The Gasteiner Bergbahnen AG invests € 1.00 per ski guest, pedestrian, or snowshoe hiker on the Graukogel into a sustainable project.
In addition, the Graukogelalm at the middle station and the Graukogelhütte at the top station of the Graukogelbahn have a tasty vegetarian dish on the menu on Thursdays. So this campaign is doubly worthwhile, because those who visit the Graukogel are doing something for their ecological footprint and enjoying the calm away from the usual hustle and bustle.

In spring 2024, we will inform you about the success of the green Thursday and the sustainable projects supported in Skigastein.

Skiing operation at the Graukogel natural snow ski area is planned depending on the snow-situation until March 31st 2024 with lift operation from Thursday to Sunday.

Near the mountain station of the leisurely Graukogelbahn chairlift, you will find a unique stone pine forest. Some of the majestic stone pine trees are over 200 years old.
