A Salzburg winter adventure

When winter covers Obertauern in glistening snow, this Austrian mountain region is transformed into a true paradise for experienced ski tourers. Away from the well-prepared pistes and the hustle and bustle on the slopes, unspoilt landscapes and majestic peaks are just waiting to be conquered by adventurers. It also gives you the opportunity to take a short power nap in your room before heading back out onto the slopes full of energy. But that’s not all, right after breakfast you’ll be in pole position again and the first to hit the freshly groomed slopes.
