Ski area Obertauern

The lift pass "Obertauern" gives you access to 100 diverse piste km and 31 modern lifts in one of the most snow secure areas of the Alps. The high speed chair lift Schaidbergbahn is in operation since 2014 and offers heated spaces for six persons at a time. The lifts were built all around the modern ski village and form the two round courses "Rote-Tauernrunde" and "Grüne Tauernrunde". Thanks to this smart design, you are right in the middle of it all within just minutes. Just a stone's throw from the accommodations, you reach the mainly blue and red pistes, reaching your starting point again in no time.

Beginners will find the slopes at the Schaidbergbahn and the Plattenkarbahn paticularly suitable. Pros, on the other hand, should try the famous but notorious Gamsleitenspitze. This deep black piste counts among the steepest mogule pistes of Europe. A further highlight is offered with the night skiing on the floodlit piste at the Edelweiss lift.

Freeriders as well as freestylers will definitely get their money's worth in Obertauern. The fun park just above the Kehrkopf - the snowpark "The Spot" - is a dream for all that are looking for a bit of action.

The little ones will find perfect conditions to practise here. Whether they join one of many ski and snowboard school, the ski kindergarden or take advantage of professional child care - the children are well looked after everywhere. A major highlight for the little ones is the ski-ghost ride at the Schaidberg: a 15 m long wooden tunnel with glowing faces and according noises. Then there is also the "Bibo Bär" Family-Skipark where three pistes are specially offered for children and beginners only.

Another highlight are the free Wi-Fi hotspots that can be found all throughout the ski area. Additionally, the new and free app "iObertauern" provides lots of useful infos that are sent through straight to your smartphone.
