Obertauern is a ski resort located in the Radstadt Tauern mountains of Austria.
Obertauern dates back to the 1960s when it was purpose-built as a winter sports destination. The development itself sits at an elevation of around 1,740 m and it's spread along a stretch of main road, without necessarily a clear "centre". The 'town' is consisting mainly of larger developments of hotel or apartment buildings, most maintain the traditional "chalet" style design than the block towers of puropse built France. Due to it's design, a lot sit on the snow front offering ski in/ski out or near abouts.
The majority of skiing would suit those who are into more relaxed pursuits, with practically no challenging slopes.
The lift system has had heavy investment so it's all fast and well maintained.
It's aspect and altitude give it a very reliable snow record.
At the end of the day, despite its size there's a healthy apres ski scene.
There are multiple points of access to either side of the valley along its length, including some right on the outskirts that are suitable for people driving in from elsewhere.
