Excellent lift system Clever natural ski circuit Attractive purpose built resort

Obertauern stands apart from other Austrian resorts in more ways than one; it’s the nation’s only purpose-built resort offering ski in/ski out convenience whilst impressively maintaining Austrian charm. It has unusually high altitudes for Austria, with pistes peaking at 2313m, and the ski area is built in a one-of-a-kind circuit where you always return to your starting point, whichever direction you ski.

Unlike most of the purpose built resorts you’ll find in the Alps, Obertauern’s chalet-style ar...
With the lifts in a central location, Obertauern’s skiing starts right in the town centre with many of the accommodation options ski-in, ski-out. With varied terrain, this resort is terrific for mixed ability groups. The nursery slopes and the ski school meeting points are conveniently situated directly beside the village. The ‘green circuit’ with 7 lifts including the main Zehnerkar cable-car gives access to superb open slopes where skiers can build confidence and progress. We like the Edelweiss run, a ge...
The après here is fun but not riotous and mainly based in the mountain huts dotted around and at the bottom of the slopes. You’ll find a mixture of traditional Austrian music and dancing and some good old Europop thrown in for good measure. A popular place is the Edelweissalm where things heat up from 3.30pm with live DJ’s, be prepared for some dancing on tables in your ski boots! Head to the Polar bear bar for cosy sessions by the open fire. The majority of accommodation is half board and most hotels ser...
