Events in Obertauern
The grand ski opening celebration & other winter event highlights
Obertauern's reliable snow cover makes it a real paradise for downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing and winter hiking. Even away from the slopes, cross-country ski trails and hiking routes all have a part to play in the small winter sports location. The highlight of the year is of course the grand ski opening celebrations at the beginning of December.
The Enzian team have collected information for you on additional highlights of the winter events programme.

Party, party, party at the ski opening celebrations
It all gets going just a few days after the lifts and slopes of the Obertauern ski region officially open: Obertauern becomes a party zone for the weekend. Many people have been waiting all year for this occasion - the grand ski opening celebrations! Every year, top-class musical acts take to the stage to join the visitors in enthusiastically celebrating the start of the ski season.

Affordable skiing on Tauern ski days
Almost as popular as the ski opening celebrations are the Tauern ski days. The difference is that skiing is the central element of these days. For one Saturday in both December and April, extra-cheap day-ski-passes are available. Great celebrations are held in the après ski locations on these days as well.

The legendary Krampus Party which is held on St Nicholas Day, with the Ö3-Disco, is particularly popular. The parade, in which hundreds of Krampuses cross over the pass summit, really brings the mystic traditions to life.
