OBERTAUERN, AUSTRIA - Small but varied area, with great snow record.

Obertauern's excellent snow record takes precedence, for some, over its lack of village charm and limited slopes. It has a small intermediate circuit, good beginners' slopes, some challenges and a typically jolly Austrian atmosphere.
