Why choose Obertauern?

With a long winter season stretching from November to May and one of the leading interlinked ski areas in the Alps, Obertauern is a firm favourite with our groups. 

Emerging as ‘one to watch’ in the 1960s, the resort of Obertauern has gone on to become one of the most popular in Austria. Sitting at 1700m, it’s located at the top of the Radstädter Tauern pass road, which connects the Salzburger Sportwelt to Oberlungau. It’s the closest Austria has to a purpose-built resort. Thankfully the architects have maintained authentic Alpine features when designing the range of quality accommodation and first-class amenities.

 

On the piste

The Obertauern ski area radiates from the resort centre, from which you can ski both clockwise and anti-clockwise, making use of the carefully thought-out lift system and interlinking pistes. With a ski pass for Obertauern you can also access the Grosseck – Speiereck ski area of Oberlungau.

Great beginners’ areas are a short drive from our hotel and come with good snow cover all season long. After building up the basics, beginners can boost their confidence on wide-open pistes, which are equally popular with more experienced skiers.

Expert skiers are by no means forgotten here. Those who like a challenge can test their mettle on the mogul runs of the Gamsleiten. For snowboarders, Obertauern’s snow park also comes highly recommended.
