Obertauern is Austria’s snowiest winter sports destination
The term “guarantee of snow” is an extremely popular advertising claim. Reliable snow means reliable income and secures the livelihood of numerous winter sports resorts in the Alps. Many regions, however, rely on extensive artificial snowmaking to keep this promise. At an altitude of 1,740 metres, Obertauern is the highest located winter sports resort in the state of Salzburg and has always prided itself on its natural snow reliability – a feature which has now practically been scientifically proven and state-certified. Günther Aigner, the renowned ski tourism researcher, has found that Obertauern has the greatest snow depths in Austria.
