Obertauern is a huge ski resort with a variety of slopes to offer. However, sometimes there are quite long parts in between that are not that well connected and where you have to walk. Gamsleiten 2 is absolutely no slope for beginners and people that...More

Obertauern is a bit too popular with big groups. 30 or so people skiing together is not a good idea, causing bottlenecks on the slopes, at the ticket office and creating lift queues. They would also do well to consider opening times - in late...More

Approx. 3,5 hours driving highway (Autobahn). We spend nice time in Alpenhotel Tauernkoenig. They even have very nice restaurant for dinners. Location is perfect - next to lifts and slopes.
