The Rauris Valley is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts as it offers a multitude of sporting and leisure activities all year round. There is something to do for everyone.
On your summer holiday you can enjoy 250 km of unspoilt hiking and cycling trails. Drive up the near by Grossglockner (tallest peak in Austria) to see the stunning views of the Austrian Alps. Take a 12 km drive to the picturesque town of Zell am See and enjoy the many facilities around the lake. For the more adventurous, why not try white water rafting or a hike to the Zittelhaus, the highest weather station in Europe and stay the night above the clouds!
For skiing the main cable-car station is a two minute walk away even in ski boots (no bus trip needed!). The skiing and boarding is ideal for beginners/intermediates who enjoy stress free, wide pistes with no queues. Visitors come back year after year. The summit is at 2200m and runs all the way down, via 36 km of excellent skiing to the resort at 950 m. There are two gondolas that carry you to the summit, 3 t-bars and one chair lift.
This really is a great place to learn how to ski or to improve your technique. The ski schools are some of the best in Europe with German and English spoken. There are great ski packages for children, which include ski and boot hire with Karl Maier Ski School. The end of the week ends with a social event for recognition and awards which the adults and children really enjoy.
There are plenty of mountain restaurants to stop for lunch and take in the breathtaking alpine views. Costs on the mountain are surprisingly reasonable and the food is good too.
A cross country skiing trail passes directly in front of the Schonblick Mountain Resort, providing access to 40 kms of cross-country tracks in the Rauris valley.
Some of the largest ski areas in Austria are also within a 20-40 minute drive including Kitzbuhel, Zell am See, Heiligenblut, Bad Gastein, Flachau, Saalbach, St Johann and the Kitzsteinhorn (Kaprun) Glacier, which provides skiing 365 days a year!
