Winter holiday at the top
A network of modern ski lifts will lead you down approximately 100 perfectly-groomed runs. A variety of charming ski huts are just the place to grab a snack and have some after-ski fun. Experience all this against the breathtaking backdrop of the Salzburg mountain ranges, which you will remember for years to come.
Obertauern is one of the best ski areas in the country. Situated at 1,800 m above sea level, holiday makers will find their own winter paradise, with everything you could wish for to make your ski holiday a great one.
Guests staying at the Seekarhaus ski hotel have the privilege of stepping outside the front door and directly on to the ski slopes. A total of 26 ski lifts and cable cars will take you on a Tauernrunde, a circular tour of the entire ski area that is suitable for beginners (green tour) as well as advanced (red tour) skiers. This way you can explore the entire Obertauern ski area without ever having to endure long walks or annoying shuttle bus rides. Guaranteed snowfall and the best conditions are a given from the end of November until the beginning of May. Have a look at the current weather conditions through our live webcams.
Excellent lift infrastructure, the best ski trails groomed daily, cosy and rustic chalets, fun après ski, and many shops, restaurants, bars and cafes in the village make Obertauern one of the most popular ski resorts in Salzburg – with no long journeys or ski buses necessary for guests of the Hotel Seekarhaus, at least! Just strap on your skis and hit the pistes because our hotel is right on the slopes. All you have to do is decide which trail you’ll carve up first.
Obertauern transforms into a magical fairy-tale winter wonderland each November: in addition to downhill and cross-country skiing, we also recommend sledging, snowshoe hikes, ski tours, moonlit tobogganing and romantic winter hikes. Skiing in Obertauern at Christmastime is a very special experience, and Obertauern is a perfect ski resort in Salzburg for children, too. Here you will find ski trails for beginners and pros alike.
