The Tauern circuit will lead you around the area, whereby you can travel clockwise or anti-clockwise from lift to lift. In one direction you can expect exclusively blue runs; in the other, the pistes offer richly varied skiing pleasure at all levels of difficulty for the entire family.
Navigate the seven tallest summit stations in the Obertauern ski-resort: Zehnerkarbahn, Hundskogelbahn, Panoramabahn, Gamsleitenbahn 2, Plattenkarbahn, Schaudbergbahn and Seekareckbahn. Down from these are challenging slopes and long pistes – which is why we only recommend these tours for seasoned winter sportsmen and women.
For all experienced and skiiers with a good head for heights, the descent from Gamsleiten 2 is a must. With a drop of up to 100%, it is one of the steepest pistes in the Alps. The 2nd chair-lift goes to the summit, where you can enjoy the unique mountain panorama. On the descent, you will lose 362 metres in altitude.
This brings even seasoned skiiers out in a sweat!
