    Beautiful alpine village, perfect for families and beginners

    This picturesque, old goldminers' village is set in the stunning Hohe Tauern National Park between the Gastein valley and Zell am See - amongst some of the highest mountains in Austria. A well-kept secret, the pretty alpine village of Rauris is a great destination for families, beginners, and confident beginners that enjoy the long blue runs that Rauris has to offer.

    Ski information

    Beginners

    The Hochalm area is ideal for beginners. The nursery slopes are directly by the gondola station allowing easy access to the slopes. On some of the higher beginners slopes you can also take in the breathtaking alpine panoramas of some of the highest mountains in Austria. Taught by efficient and friendly ski instructors you will experience some of the best tuition in the area.

    Intermediates

    The Kreuzboden and Waldalm areas have well groomed, wide, long red runs, excellent for improving your technique - accessed directly from the village by comfortable chairlifts.

    Advanced

    A little known treasure! The black run from the Heimalm to the bottom of the gondola is really something special. There can also be priceless deep snow on unprepared pistes. Waldalm and Kreuzboden slopes give you a fantastic 3.3km run!
