Niederau/Oberau/Auffach Ski Holiday Resort
Characterised by the picturesque scenery and friendly atmosphere, these family resorts are situated in a popular area of the Kitzbüheler Alps known as the Wildschönau valley. The ski area is ideal for beginners and is also a perfect confidence building resort for aspiring intermediates.
