The Salzburg Region
Rauris is beautiful Alpine Village in the Tohe Tauern National Park, originally a gold mining village and also the oldest ski resort in Austria. 60 minutes drive from the wonderful city of Salzburg with it's history and Christmas markets.
Rauris is an all year round place to stay. Excellent skiing in the winter, particularly ideal for families as the ski lifts are less than a 5 minute walk and excellent ski schools with English and German speaking instructors.
There are a number of restaurants on the slopes, which give you a great welcome, good food and have reasonable prices. All of course have fabulous views!
Skiing is wonderful here, wide blue runs, some decent red's and a black down to the village. No queue's, no bus rides, affordable restaurants, great hospitality, après ski in town - what more could you ask for?
In the summer the area is stunning, so many places to visit and so many walks and cycle runs - you will be spoilt for choice. If you love the outdoors, this is the place for you.
