Your solo ski trip in Obertauern:

With slopes ranging in altitude between 1,630 and 2,313 m, Obertauern guarantees great Easter skiing conditions until May. The region is popular with both skiers and snowboarders alike: Its 26 lifts provide access to over 100 kilometres of blue, red and black runs, as well as a snow park. For thrill-seekers, the piste alongside the Gamsleiten 2 lift is the second steepest run in Austria. The fast and efficient lift system, wide prepared pistes and amazing deep-snow skiing all add to Obertauern’s appeal at Easter. The lifts are so cleverly laid out in a circle around the village, in fact, that our solo travellers can ski the so-called ‘Tauern circuit’ and never be far from their hotel.

Other activities on offer at Easter:

Obertauern also offers countless hiking trails, letting you enjoy the beautiful winter landscape. If you fancy trying something new on your singles ski holiday, why not join a snowshoe hike with a tour guide, or try snowbiking, an exciting yet safe new adventure? It’s easy for anyone to learn, and really cool. You can also hire toboggans at every sports shop in Obertauern and try them out on the slopes next to the pistes.

After an active day of skiing, you could go to the hotel’s indoor pool, whirlpool,  or adult only spa with steam room, range of saunas, quartz grotto, tepidarium, water beds and relaxation area with panoramic views of the surrounding Tauern mountains.

Be sure to save some energy for our twice-weekly floodlit night skiing or tobogganing down the Gamsleiten Alm – both fun and memorable experiences. There are also plenty of opportunities for some après ski drinks at Obertauern’s many famous après ski bars. For those who feel more like relaxing in front of the fireplace after their 5-course gourmet dinner, the hotel bar is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine and good company.

The resort and village of Obertauern in Austria:

Obertauern’s history dates back to the Celts (who inhabited the area from the 4th to the 1st centuries B.C.), and the Romans, who used the Tauern Pass to reach Salzburg. The Radstädter Tauern were first mentioned in 1207. The first skiers were recorded here in 1902, and the first lifts built in the 50s and 60s.

Today Obertauern is a popular ski region in the southeast of the Salzburg state, in the Radstädter Tauern mountains and Austria’s only purpose built resort meaning.  The highest slope is at 2,213 m making for snow safe skiing until the end of April.  You can ski the famous Tauern Circuit around the village clockwise or anti-clockwise on a mix of red and blue run and you are never far from the village: You can ski to and from the door of most of its chalet-style hotels. The village itself is located high on the sunny side of the mountain, at 1,741 m.

In 1965, Obertauern had a brush with fame when the Beatles filmed ‘Help’ here, evident in the many  tributes and memorabilia in and around the village. In COVID-free times, Obertauern offers lively, unobtrusive après-ski. Two legendary alpine huts are the Edelweißalm at 1,850 m, with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain world and the Lürzer Alm in the centre of town with its rustic charm and famous après-ski parties.

"Never done this before, I am now a customer for life. Such kindness and compassion. A truly wonderful experience."
- Kate - solo ski trip Schladming, March 2022
"This was honestly the best holiday that I have had in years. I was nervous about how it would be to go on holiday with a group of people I had never met but I really shouldn't have been. Sandra was really welcoming on arrival and organised everything so that we could be as involved (or not) as we wanted. It was all planned to perfection, the skiing was fab and I had so much fun. I would highly recommend a similar holiday and hope to be back. Thank you!"
- Angela - solo ski holiday in Schladming, March 2022
"Fantastic holiday. Great group, really well organised and excellent ski guiding from Sandra, Ian and Tennessee which made the holiday so much more relaxing and effortless. Not even the need to look at a piste map!"
- Jo - solo ski holiday in Schladming, March 2022
"Just returned from a fabulous week skiing in Schladming. This was my first solo holiday and I was very apprehensive beforehand. Sandra was an amazing host, along with Ian and Tennessee. I met lots of lovely people and definitely will be going back!"
- Lesley - solo ski holiday in Schladming, March 2022
"I have only had this one skiing holiday with this company, but the level of organization, accommodation and support were second to none. If the same applies to other holidays they run then I would have no hesitation in recommending them."
- Brian - solo ski holiday in Schladming, March 2022
"Would definitely recommend the ski solo trip. Best solo holiday so far. All down to the hosts and the solos who attended. Book it, you won't regret it!"
- Julie - solo ski holiday in Schladming, March 2022
"SPOH arranged an excellent ski trip to Schladming. Sandra was an excellent host and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was of a high standard and the guests made it a memorable holiday. I had never been on a solo holiday and was somewhat apprehensive. I shouldn’t have been ! It was a great opportunity to ski and meet some lovely people ."
