Location - where is Haus Gamskar

A short glide on skis from the lifts, kindergarten, ski school and nursery slopes, a 250m walk from the ski shop, bars and restaurants in Nasserein and a 10 minute stroll into the heart of St Anton.


Overview - chalet description - Haus Gamskar description

If you are going to travel hundreds of miles from the UK to ski, you might as well travel an extra few hundred yards and stay close to the slopes. There are not many chalets in St Anton from where you can ski from the door and a gentle slide takes you to the main Nasserein lift, nursery slopes, ski school and kids kindergarten.

Haus Gamskar has been painstakingly tailored to satisfy the modern-day skier. No cheesy Alpine kitsch here, just warmth, comfort, space and a cracking location. Big bedrooms, smart bathrooms (including heated walls behind the towel rails … clever eh), a jumbo living area and stacks of hot water.

The bars and restaurants of Nasserein are a quick toboggan ride or few hundred yard walk away and the infamous Tom Dooley’s Bar is next door but one. For the more adventurous, the seductive buzz of central St Anton nightlife is a ten minute stroll away. A great choice for those who like the click click of bindings a few steps from the door.

Meals - food and drink in Haus Gamskar

Our Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined 2014 menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All our holidays include;

  • Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
  • Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Canapés on the first and last evening
  • 3 course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
  • A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner
We update Haus Gamskar's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

This package holiday to Haus Gamskar in St Anton, Austria departs Monday 12th December 2016, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Brimming with traditional Austrian charm but with all the conveniences of a modern resort, St Anton's vast, high altitude ski area and vibrant atmosphere make it truly world class. It's one of the major international destinations that everyone must visit at least once (and is likely to return to frequently thereafter). Two minutes from the train station and less than an hour's drive from Innsbruck airport, it's a conveniently accessible resort. The main village is traffic free and stretches for about 1km - dot...
It's often said that if you learn to ski or snowboard here, you're likely to find any other resort an utter breeze... Just don't do a Bridget Jones (her memorable descent in 'Edge of Reason' took place on one of the more challenging Arlberg runs) and make sure to take advantage of the excellent tuition on offer. Thanks to local legend Hannes Schneider, St Anton opened the first ski school in 1921. The Skischule Arlberg continues to provide excellent tuition today, so beginners are in good hands. There's a nurs...
The après ski here is absolutely legendary: the atmosphere is constantly buzzing and with a night bus running until 3am, you can really make the most of your evening. You'll find about 20 bars offering a variety of scenes, but to experience après ski at its best you can't leave until you've joined the masses and danced on the tables at world-famous Mooserwirt or The Crazy Kangaroo (Krazy Kanguruh). While it's reputation is lively (and the resort lives up to it) there are lots of options if you prefer a more so...

"Relaxing holiday in St Anton with friends"

M O'Keeffe
4/ out of 5
We had a great time in St Anton and enjoyed our stay in Haus Gamskar. Whilst the snow conditions were challenging due to the time of year, we loved our week here. The ski guiding by Leo and Callum was very good. The chalet staff were very cheerful and accommodating, especially Gavin and Alistair with their displays of fruit carvings on the cheese boards! Whilst the food was good, having been on holiday with this chalet company the last few years, it would have been good to have more variety and not see some of the same dishes from previous years. We also felt the breakfast options were quite limited e.g. Plain omelette only, no option of filling. Tim was excellent, very professional and attentive. We asked for local bread rolls for breakfast (which should be standard given how nice and local they are) and they were there the next day and subsequent days, he also sorted out ski lessons and meals, and phoned to inquire of well-being when one of the party injured his thumb - much appreciated!

Excellent spacious accommodation with great layout for a group. Staff very welcoming. Appreciated the cheese board, crackers would be appreciated alongside the bread. Good choice of wine. Surprised at lack on canapés each day as seems standard with other companies. Wake up tea/coffee welcomed. Cakes for afternoon tea were amazing!

Very nice accommodation although I would have picked different carpets and curtains! Gavin and Izzy did a great job - food and general care of great standard. The place was spotless and Gavin took great pride in the food. It was only the second week of operation so some things needed to be ironed out, e.g. We didn't have a Tv remote for the week and the DVD remote didn't work which was annoying. Also, would have been helpful if they told us that the 3 year old ski lessons were not based at Nasserein or provided travel of some sort to get to and from the lessons there. Apartment was very cosy and spacious - would happily return!

"Great holiday at nice chalet!"
