I do not think Obertauern is the right resort for a complete beginner because there are few real nursery slopes and not easy to access. It really best suits intermediates, since there are opportunities for former beginners to make that next step into the Red runs (as I did) and also for experienced intermediates to take on some of the steeper reds and the few blacks. On the whole, pistes were not over-crowded, although some runs did get pretty busy e.g. 8a near the top of Grunwaldkopf chair and 21a.
