Raurisertal Ski Hotel Guide - Ski accommodation


Set in the beautiful Hohe Tauern National Park, the ski area offers long wide blue runs for confident beginners and more challenging red runs for early intermediates wanting to sharpen up their technique whilst on their ski holiday. With gentle nursery slopes easily accessible at both the base and top of the gondola, this is a resort ideally suited to beginners and families - not just for the amount of easier runs but also the sheer convenience of it all.   


Superbly groomed cross-country ski trails extend out for 45 km in five big loops through the romantic countryside of the Rauris Valley.


For beginner snowboarders the resort is superb. Improvers will love the perfectly groomed slopes and those looking for a bit of a challenge will enjoy the good freeride opportunities, a boardercross and natural fun park.



Sledding Fun
Flying down towards the village on a groomed toboggan run just has to be done. The lift is open from 7am until 8.30pm - floodlit in the evenings for après-ski fun.
