Tots are on top in Obertauern

Skiing courses, accommodation and more starting at € 199 for junior snow sports fans

The greatest snow depths of all winter sports resorts in Austria, the most spectacular events, endless skiing and snowboarding on the legendary Tauern round – Obertauern scores many superlatives. The fact that also the family-friendly offerings and facilities can easily keep up with the top league might almost be overlooked.

The great location of Obertauern makes it a perfect choice especially for families with children: “Ski in ski out” proves true from every point in the village. Lift facilities are always only a few swerves away from the hotel, so you’ll never have to wait for the next ski bus, or drag your heavy equipment for miles – an asset that people with kids can really appreciate. Parents and kids alike are excited about the kindergarten for guests – the Kinderland Obertauern – where non-skiing children are looked after by trained personnel. It releases parents to hit the slopes untroubled, knowing their children are in capable hands.

Young skiers get their own circuit

26 modern cable cars and ski lifts are set up in a way that winter sports enthusiasts can explore the entire 100 km of slopes in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction, ultimately returning to their starting point. In the upcoming winter season, this unique skiing circuit called “Tauern round” will be complemented by two brand new “Tauern rounds for kids” tailored to the ability and stamina of children and teens. As counterparts to the tried and tested Tauern round for grown-ups, smaller children can frolic on the “Bobby round”, named after local mascot Bobby, while more advanced kids and teens will be hitting “My Track”.

The perfect introduction to snow for kids is guaranteed with many facilities and offers. Starting with the Bibo Bear family ski park, where children are playfully acquainted with snow and skis, all the way to the seven skiing and snowboarding schools using age-appropriate, state-of-the-art instruction methods. To help little beginners develop their skiing and snowboarding skills playfully and efficiently, Obertauern offers special “Bobby’s Snow Adventure” deals at reasonable and family-friendly terms. The children’s winter sports programme is named after its official mascot Bobby, the white snow hare.

Easy introduction to having fun in snow

The adventure package includes a skiing course for five full days or a snowboarding course for five half days, a ski pass for the duration of the course, rental equipment for six days, free accommodation in the parents’ room with the same boarding type as the adults plus transfer to and from Salzburg Airport. In addition, the little “snow angels” can participate in the general kids’ entertainment programme for free. If desired, lunch supervision can be booked individually.

For children aged 6 to 14, the Snow Adventure deal costs €279 and includes the above skiing and snowboarding lessons, rental equipment and a 15% discount on airport transfer. Accommodation is booked separately – establishments participating in Bobby’s Snow Adventure offer very attractive package deals for guests of that particular age group.

Bobby’s Snow Adventure can be booked for any week between January 6th and January 27th 2018, or between April 7th and April 14th 2018, up to seven days before arrival. Skiing and snowboarding courses start on Sundays or Mondays. Bobby’s Snow Adventure partner hotels can be found at
