Visitor Reviews of Obertauern

simon from United Kingdom writes:

I have skiied in Obertauern for the past 6 years and it gets better and better every year. The pistes are accessible and varied plus the resort is snow sure from December to May!
There is fabulous apres-ski at "the Lurzer" and up the mountain at "the Hochalm" not to mention lots of choice for eating out.
The real jewel was the outstanding 'Steinadler Aparthaus' across the road from the Zehnerkar lift station. The apartment was spacious, warm and very luxurious with all the amenities necessary for a really great holiday. You can ski in / out or just walk across to the ski lift in 5 minutes.
All in all, Obertauern is fabulous!
