With some of the best and snow-sure high altitude skiing in Austria, Obertauern is shrouded by the spectacular peaks and slopes of the RadstÃ¤dter Tauern. There are 95 kms of prepared piste, all leading back to the village in this well-planned ski circus, ideal for all grades of skier. Facing north and south, the main skiing areas present 26 interconnecting lifts allowing extensive skiing around the Tauernrunde â€˜bowlâ€™ region without the necessity of ski buses. There is the added pleasure of being able to ski to or from the door of most hotels.
The resort is built high and the developments have been well thought out and create an attractive village.
Obertauern has several lively nightspots and has been famous for aprÃ¨s ski ever since the Beatles made their film â€˜Helpâ€™ here in 1965.
