Obertauern has one of the longest seasons in the Alps: winter lasts until early May. With high-altitude queue-free skiing, traditional Austrian après-ski and ski-in/ski-out hotels, Obertauern is a real treasure in the Salzburg ski region, deservedly gaining in popularity with British guests.

Skiing and snowboarding in Obertauern

Obertauern is Austria's only purpose-built ski resort which means ski-in, ski-out from almost all hotels. You can expect high altitude skiing from 1,740m to 2,526m and 100km of slopes served by 26 lifts.

Obertauern has the best guarantee of snow in Salzburgerland. There’s a well-linked circuit, almost entirely above the treeline on both sides of the Tauern pass valley. Surrounded by the spectacular peaks of the Radstädter Tauern, the Skicircus is suitable for all levels and great for mixed ability groups.

Where to stay in Obertauern

Ski-in, ski-out hotels and guaranteed snow makes Obertauern one of the most desirable resorts in Austria. The town itself is a mix of traditional chalet style buildings with more modern architecture. We offer a range of 4-5 star hotels all with excellent locations and most properties include spa and wellness facilities with your stay. The slopes and lifts form a circuit around the village which makes it easy to get around.

Bars and restaurants in Obertauern

Après-ski is lively at the many huts dotted around the mountain and even more so at the bottom of the slopes. With the addition of the nearby Mauterndorf ski area, a further 50km of piste and 9 more lifts are available to Obertauern lift pass holders, a free 20 minutes ski bus ride connects the two resorts.
