Resort Information

If you are looking for the ultimate winter experience then Obertauern is ideal for your school ski trip. The only truly purpose-built ski resort in Austria, Obertauern boasts all the mod-cons, including fantastic lifts, all of which are modern and high-speed (some even have heated seats!). The resort forms a natural ski circuit and has a range of excellent accommodation options and lively après-ski. Full of hotels, restaurants, cafes and bars, there is a truly alpine atmosphere in this resort, which makes it a great option for introducing your students to mountain life.

Skiing Information

Particularly good for beginners and intermediates, Obertauern also has some steep black runs for the more advanced skiers. As skiing starts at around 1600m, snow is practically guaranteed from the end of November until the beginning of May. You can also opt to upgrade your ski pass to include the whole of the Oberlungau region, which covers 290km of piste. For skiers who like to travel, Obertauern is part of a ski circuit, which is best tackled in an anti-clockwise direction. The circuit can also be completed on blue slopes at a lower altitude.
