Obertauern: Austria's snow bowl

Austria’s little known gem, Obertauern, is 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. Situated in the Salzburgerland region of the Austrian Alps and nestled within the scenic peaks of the Tauern mountain range, Obertauern was originally just a mountain pass before it became a ski resort. At 1750m it is one of Austria's highest sk..

Crans Montana

Ik vond dit een prachtig skigebied. Wat een mooi uitzicht over de hoge Zwitserse bergtoppen. De gletsjer Plaine Morte vond ik heel erg mooi. Door het weer (de volledige week VOL zon!) was er 's middags wel wat pappige sneeuw. maar omdat wij buiten he..

Fiesch

Don't go to Fiesch unless you can't get anywhere else. The skiing is so limited and to get between the resorts can require a lot of poling. You need to be careful that you don't ski too low as one of our groups did and had to pole for 20 mins to get ..

Als u naar een rustig skigebied wil met alle mogelijkheden en betaalbaar, moet u beslist eens naar PRAPOUTEL gaan, wij komen er al meer dan tien jaar en het bevalt ons nog steeds. Het is een prachtig ski gebied met een groot funpark voor jong en oud!..

Very small only 10 km of pistes. I like skiing in this resort but in comparison with other close situated resorts its below average. Snow quality was poor due to lack of fresh snow. The last day we had fresh snow which resulted in enormous waiting li..

Snow farming secures planned opening of the ski season

With the commercial increasing pressure on ski resorts to open early and with good skiing conditions, snow farming has been recognized as one of the most powerful and eco-friendly way to achieve this. Faced with rising temperatures, ski resorts are preserving last year’s snow by storing it under tarps or saw-dust. It’s a low-tech way to start the next season with an inherited base and colder ground temperatures. The methods have proven successful for multiple resorts and are an important part to their success in the weeks before Christmas.
