Rauris is proof that the best things come in small packages, this picturesque and traditional village is unspoilt and its surroundings are a designated area of natural beauty protected by its Hohe Tauern National Park status.
The resort offers plenty of long, gentle blue runs ideal for beginners. Along with the quiet pistes, Rauris has some efficient and friendly ski instructors so you will be hitting the big slopes in no time.
The Kreuzboden and Waldalm areas have well groomed, wide, long red runs, excellent for improving your technique - accessed directly from the village by comfortable chairlifts.
Experts can tackle the black run (piste 2) from the Heimalm area to the bottom of the gondola; it’s steep with full-on moguls big enough to challenge any seasoned skier.
Eating out & Nightlife
There are numerous restaurants offering traditional Austrian specialities, as well as international cuisine. For nightlife, a great place to start is Heimalm: a lovely mountain hut where beautiful panoramic views and a jolly fun atmosphere create a winning combination.
