Winter in the Rauris Valley

Rauris is situated in the Hochalmbahnen ski area and is the perfect resort for families and intermediate skiers and snowboarders of all ages. The apartment is only a 3-5min walk from the Gondola and Ski School, so you’re in the heart of the action in no time.

 

With 30km of beautifully-groomed piste, plenty of off-piste areas and the Nugget fun park, there really is something for everyone. The slopes face north-east, ensuring the snow stays in great condition, but snow cannons cover all the runs into the resort for added security.

 

Why not test your stamina with the 3.3 km run from the top station on the Schwarzwand to the base station of the Hochalmbahn? A vertical descent of over 4,000 feet!

 

Cross-country skiers and hikers are equally well catered for, with 45km of groomed, cross-country piste and 48km of cleared winter hiking trails. Other exciting winter activities abound. Try your hand at snow-shoeing, sledging, take a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride across crisp, white snow, or experience the thrill of a moonlit tobogganing adventure.
