We are snow!

Obertauern is open 7 months a year.

Obertauern is the highest ski area in all of Salzburg region and Austria‘s snowiest winter sport village, giving you perfect conditions from November until the beginning of May! 

It is the sure place to visit for pure winter enjoyment when in other resorts not a single flake has even fallen or already melted away? 

Surrounded by a snowy ring of peaks up to 2,313 meters above sea level, you are greeted by 100 km of magical pistes, 26 modern ski lifts, 26 km of glorious cross-country ski trails, the Bibo Bear Family Ski Park, plus a snow park for the freestyle scene, all just waiting to be explored and enjoyed by you.  

The Obertauern snow guarantee has been proven in a study published by ski tourism researcher Günther Aigner last year. With an average maximum snow depth of 264 centimetres, Obertauern is number one on the list for guaranteed snow of the seven leading Austrian resorts.  



When you arrive at the Obertauern snow paradise you have immediate access to over 100 kilometers of slopes – a unique Ski-in/Ski-out guarantee – from your bed to the slopes. And with the so-called “Tauernrunde”, Obertauern also boasts one of the most attractive skiing circuits in all of the Alpine world, leading you from one magical ski run to the next, only stopping at one of the superb mountain huts which dot the circuit. 

Nightlife isn’t in the slightest neglected here in Obertauern either – regardless of whether you are alone or with a group of friends. There’s an exciting nighttime scene, where everyone finds what they are looking for: hot rhythms, cool drinks, interesting people and all kinds of good fun. 

What could be more beautiful than spending a winter vacation with all your family or all your friends and  everyone has a great time – no matter how old or young?  

And you get to experience all of this at snowsure elevations around 1,7040 meters during your winter getaway in Obertauern. www.obertaauern.com
