Obertauern: Austria's snow bowl

Obertauern is one of Austria’s little known gems, hardly an hour's drive from Salzburg Airport. It has an infectiously friendly laid-back atmosphere and with generally quieter slopes than the big name resorts it’s no surprise that this destination is gaining in popularity fast.

At 1750m it …

Snow fall anticipated in the northern Alps at the start of mid term

At the start of mid term snow conditions are generally good in the Alps for the vast majority of skiers who are happy to remain on-piste. Off the beaten track the situation is more complicated.

Schlick 2000 A hidden gem in Innsbruck’s backyard

Schlick 2000 is the ski arena of Fulpmes, nestled in the stunningly beautiful Stubai Valley. Of all the skiresorts in Tyrol this is probably not the most obvious destination for wintersporter enthousiasts. Why that is? I have absolutely no idea!

Schlick 2000 provides them with a quiet getaway in their own backyard. Although Innsbruck has several attractive …
