Obertauern in Winter

Due to its geographical location, Obertauern is fortunate to receive large amounts of snow from the north as well as snowfall from the south. Coupled with its high altitude, this makes Obertauern the snowiest winter sports resort in Austria. Whether you’re skiing, cross-country skiing or tobogganing in the winter wonderland of Obertauern, you’ll find the perfect conditions.

It is the ultimate challenge for all those who are looking for that special kick – the “Gamsleiten 2”. As one of the steepest slopes in Europe, even expert skiers and snowboarders have respect for the deep black run, as the slope can only be groomed at irregular intervals due to the weather conditions, making it a great challenge time and time again.

Whether hiking, climbing, mountain biking, horse riding or simply just relaxing – holidays in Obertauern do you good.
