Obertauern

Overview

High snow sure skiing. A mainly modern development at the top of the Tauern pass road. Although this is a modern development there is still a feeling that you are in Austria and not a French high altitude Ski Station. The skiing is suitable for beginners intermediates and experts.

  • Great snow
  • Good apres ski

Negative

  • Lifts can occasionally close due to wind
  • Village lacks the old austrian charm

Offslope/apres ski

Plenty to do for the committed apres skier typically jolly Austrian apres ski. Some excellent good fun bars and clubs with live music and dancing.
