“Off the radar of most Americans.”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

It helps if you speak a bit of German here. Luckily, most of the Russians, Greeks and others default to English if you can't speak much German. The skiing is varied and fun. The only downside on our visit was that several black diamonds were too icy for our appetite. If you're an intermediate, you're in heaven. Beginners are accommodated here, too. Some of the lifts have heated seats which was delightfully toasty. If you're a big shopper, this resort isn't for you. If there's a big drop of snow, everyone from Munich and Vienna shows up for the weekend.

“Well travelled baby boomer”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

I have been lucky to ski a number of large and well known ski areas in Europe , Canada and the US...I never heard of Obertauren before this trip. I would go back in a minute... I'm not looking for double black diamonds anymore, just a nice relatively challenging ski area with a lot of fast lifts, a nice gondola run, beautiful scenery and a nice ski village serviced by public transportation (bus service)...Highly recommend this skiing destination...

“Good Skiing”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Obertauern is a purpose built ski resort with large area of red and blue runs. The lift system is excellent and because the area is effectively a huge bowl within the mountains it is possible to ski all the way around either clockwise or counterclockwise and end up where you started.

Lots of ski schools for beginners or those seeking private tuition. Plenty of off piste challenges for the experts. Nursery slopes not brilliant but adequate. It is a resort targeted at the intermediate or fully competent skier. Transfer from Salzburg airport approx 1hour.

“Excellent skiing”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Pistes are well maintained and the 'Tauernrunde' routes provide varied runs for most skiers that are easy to navigate.
