Give your students a taste of the high Alps by bringing them to one of the highest resorts in Austria. Easy piste access makes mornings run smoothly and the views across the Tauern Mountains are simply stunning. Your students can get equally excited about the après activities, including bowling, swimming and a range of fantastic in-house entertainment, plus there are shops and restaurants in the town itself.
Obertauern is a purpose-built resort sitting in a breathtaking position high in a mountain pass. The lift system fans out from a central point, creating a circuit route to guide your group around the ski area. Progression tends to be fast, with 96km of beginner and intermediate pistes for them to practice on.
Gentle novice slopes give an easy introduction for learners, while the range of reds in the wider ski area create the perfect playground for intermediates. But Obertauern’s real trump card is its unique ski circuit, which leads you around the ski area.
Wherever you ski, you’ll be surrounded by spectacular scenery and, when each ski day draws to a close, the runs back to the village are fantastic.
