The Graukogel ski area is almost hidden away along the road to the Kötschach valley and on the "wrong" side of Bad Gastein. It can be reached by ski-bus or minibus taxi, or even - for those with an excess of energy - on foot. It consists of two chairlifts and a T-bar at the top. The main top to bottom route is a pleasant red run through the trees. There is also a blue to the lift of the top chairlift and, when conditions permit, a black run to the right which joins the chairlift junction at the Graukogelalm or allows the option of a black ski route heading into one of the red runs to the base of the area.
Graukogel is a challenge for top skiers with its long difficult downhill runs. Most of the runs lead through forests and therefore are sheltered from wind and allows good orientation on days when visibility is poor.
