We were pleasantly surprised by what we found in Gerlos and the Zillertal Arena. Gerlos sits at the centre of the largest linked ski area in the Zillertal. From Gerlos, you can access about 150km of pistes in Gerlos, Zell and Koenigsleiten. This would satisfy most skiers for a week. There is a mixed terrain, with plenty of reds for the intermediate skier to enjoy. Gerlos is at relatively high altitude by Austrian standards (1250m) so the snow is pretty much***ured and you can ski back to the town. There are many restaurants and bars on the mountains and because of that they never get too busy. Prices in the restaurants and bars, on the mountain and off it, were very reasonable.

Gerlos heeft een prima skigebied. Minpunten vind ik voornamelijk de verbindingsliften en afdaling. De liften zijn erg traag, hebben geen kap en bij hoge windsnelheden liggen ze er meteen uit. Denk hierbij aan de Stoanmandl, Teufeltal en de Krimml-X-press voor de verbinding tussen Zell en Gerlos. Verder zijn de afdalingen zeer smal, en liggen ze er veelal erbarmelijk bij: veel, heel veel buggels.
Ook de verbinding van Gerlos naar Konigsleiten is niet optimaal: de zwarte 6 is vrij pittig, dus voor beginners niet te doen. Vervolgens een trage 2 persoonsstoeltjeslift, en ten slotte een trag 4persoonslift: Falschbach. Wanneer je vanuit Konigsleiten terug wilt naar Gerlos is het helemaal erbarmeli

The village is traditionally, with winter wonderland paths along the river make it magical for walking. Love the village.
Overall Gerlos and linking mountains plus a glacier, give lots of off piste, groomed slopes to suit challenge everybody. There is an excellent training slope for beginners, This was our third year and we still are discovering more runs, falling off ski lifts and finding off piste opportunities.

One word: great! The skiing accomodations are great. They have everything from slopes above tree level, looking at huge masses of snow and mountains, to slopes based on roads, going through the trees downhill. It's also pretty big and nearly everything is connected, so you never have to take a bus to go from that village or slope to this village or slope and back. The lifts (elevators?) are fast and comfortable. I have been going there for 10 years and a lot has changed. There are much better lifts now. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to the sweet romantic two seater, to make place for a huge gondola, although it does make waiting times a lot shorter. Although it can be busy at high seas

Wij skienen al vele jaren in Gerlos. Het gebied is erg leuk en afwisselend. Wanneer je nog moet leren skien is Gerlos helemaal een aanrader. Er zijn veel Nedelandse leraren en leraressen. Wat ik wel een nadeel vindt van Gerlos is dat de liften niet op loopafstand te bereiken zijn vanaf het centrum. Het dorp verdient niet de schoonheidsprijs. Eigenlijk bestaat Gerlos maar uit 1 straat. Aan deze straat heb je wel geweldige apres-ski tenten en uitgaansgelegenheden. Uiteindelijk ga je hiervoor dan ook naar Gerlos! Gerlos is evenals Saalbach en Zurs ons favoriete skivakantieoord.
