Don’t waste any time on your way to the ski slopes – put your skis on right in front of the door and away you go. There’s nothing to stop a perfect day’s skiing in Obertauern. Ski school & ski rental as well as sports shops are just 150 m away from the hotel. You don’t need your car at all.
Günther Aigner, the renowned ski tourism researcher, has found that Obertauern has the greatest snow depths in Austria. With a mean maximum snow depth of 264 centimetres, Obertauern is by far the best ranking location. Mr. Aigner’s research also shows that, statistically, the snow depths in Obertauern have not changed in 108 years. There is thus no indication that the snowfall in Obertauern might decrease over time. And that means: Obertauern’s snow guarantee is not just a marketing claim, it is a scientifically proven fact.
