Obertauern, Austria
Small but varied area, with great snow record.

european skiing obertauern austria

Obertauern's excellent snow record takes precedence, for some, over its lack of village charm and limited slopes. It has a small intermediate circuit, good beginners' slopes, some challenges and a typically jolly Austrian atmosphere.

What's Great
What's Not-So-Great

+ Generally good snow conditions for the entire season
