TRAVEL GENERAL INFORMATION
|Period of this trip:||March 2015|
|Country:||Austria – Obertauern|
|Number of travelers:||2|
|Budget:||Up to 750 GBP|
|Best Period:||Ski season lasts through to early May (From November to May)|
|VISA:||None for EU citizens|
|General Info:||Experience all the enjoyment of skiing in Obertauern, with its state-of-the-art lifts, 90 kilometers of slopes ranging from beginner to expert.
There are a number of great bars for après located in town at the edge of the slopes – Lurzer Alm, Edelweissalm, Heustadl, Gruber Stadl are all busy with post ski crowds.
Only warning is in Obertauern, smoking is not banned inside bars and restaurants, so if this bothers you then perhaps it is not the place for you to go! However it is a great local ski resort with mostly Austrian and German crowds, not many menus in English (a good sign) and loads of great ski areas connected by ski runs. Snow assured from November – May.
