Dreaming of winter – experiencing nature.

Winter is not just a season, but a feeling. It’s the crisp, fresh mountain air mixed with the company of loved ones. Majestic mountain slopes set amongst a town of glittering candlelight. It’s a time to be active outside and relaxed indoors. Since 1955 we have been fortunate to share these moments with you. As winter sets in we invite you share the enchanted landscape of Zirbenhof. 

Zirbenhof at a glance

Where the snow is at home. Obertauern,
1,752 metres above sea level.

With over one hundred kilometres of groomed slopes, powder filled terrain and fun parks – Obertauern makes the heart of every winter sports enthusiast beat faster. Gamsleiten II is one of the steepest slopes in the world–and if you can’t get enough of skiing in the day, join us for night skiing, an incredible experience adding to the magic of Obertauern. Here in Obertauern, where the snow is at home, it is incredibly easy to feel like you are always one with nature… and for the Beatles enthusiasts among us: you may recognise scenes from the music video ‘Help!’ which was filmed right here in Obertauern.

Location & journey

Skiing is a dance, and the mountains always lead.

Flawless powder descents and wide carving slopes which glitter in the morning sunrays. Snow-covered peaks and forests as far as the eye can see. All this, right on your doorstep. No long car journey, no search for a parking spot or exhausting march in ski boots to finally get to the lift.  Simply sleep in, have a relaxed morning and off you go. This is how easy ski in & ski out can be.

Ski in & Ski out

Skiing. What else!?

Even though the two boards on the feet mean the world to us, there is so much more to discover in our Winter Wonderland. Quietly walk through deep powder snow in snowshoes or enjoy some tobogganing – the winter landscape presents itself like a white canvas which waits for you to create the most colourful and versatile holiday pictures. On and off the slopes.

50 Shades of White. Blue sky. Sunlight. This is the stage for your holiday with us at Zirbenhof. And now … your cue.
