My Wife and I went there to celebrate 2021 on New Year's Day with no particular expectations.

We left the resort speechless. We have skied across the Alps and this place Is hands down our favourite.

The Tauernkar black is a magnificent run, perfect pitch, wide open pistes and you can blast it as fast as you like. Opposite the World Cup downhill run which is a varied brute and superb as well.

Prior to today, my favourite skiing was Grand Montets, Chamonix. Whilst Tauernkar is shorter than Grand Montets, it is of the same calibre, and you leave feeling you have had the best run...
