Active winter holidays in Austria

Alpine and cross-country skiing as well as wellness – discover winter in Salzburg

At first sight, it might seem as if we are in cahoots with Old Man Winter, since our region surrounding Obertauern is an absolute magnet for snow. The magnificent “white stuff” appears punctually in November as if by magic, blanketing the mountainsides until May at elevations between 1000 and 2500 meters above sea level. Far from automatic in many Alpine regions, this is always a shimmering, crystalline winter wonderland with a combination of sports, fun and action providing the perfect backdrop for a winter holiday and wellness in Austria.

Your winter full of opportunities

Obertauern and Skiwelt Amadé boast hundreds of kilometers of pistes, offering ski and snowboard fans a wider array of opportunities for their exhilarating sports than anywhere else in Austria. In addition to that, we have created a selection of attractive winter activities certain to appeal to your whole family. The Obertauern lifts are just 10 minutes away by ski bus, which stops right outside our front door – in other words, you can leave your car parked safely at our Alpin Life Resort and get your day off to an uncomplicated, stress-free start. Look forward to an active winter holiday with us in Salzburger Land.
