Your Single Parent Ski Holiday in Obertauern:

With slopes ranging in altitude between 1,630 and 2,313 m, Obertauern guarantees great Easter skiing conditions until May. The region is popular with both skiers and snowboarders alike: Its 26 lifts provide access to over 100 kilometres of blue, red and black runs, as well as a snow park. For thrill-seekers, the piste alongside the Gamsleiten 2 lift is the second steepest run in Austria. The fast and efficient lift system, wide prepared pistes and amazing deep-snow skiing all add to Obertauern’s appeal at Easter. The lifts are so cleverly laid out in a circle around the village, in fact, that our single parent families can ski the so-called ‘Tauern circuit’ and never be more than a few minutes from their hotel.

Other Activities on Offer at Easter:

Obertauern also offers countless hiking trails, letting you enjoy the beautiful winter landscape. If you fancy trying something new on your single parent ski holiday, why not join a snowshoe hike with a tour guide, or try snowbiking, an exciting yet safe new adventure? It’s easy for anyone to learn, and really cool. You can also hire toboggans at every sports shop in Obertauern and try it out on the slopes next to the pistes.

After an active day of skiing, our single parent families will appreciate the hotel’s large indoor pool, family sauna and whirlpool, as well as the adult only spa with steam room, range of saunas, quartz grotto, tepidarium, water beds and relaxation area with panoramic views of the surrounding Tauern mountains. The little ones can enjoy themselves in the hotel’s kids room with little go karts, soft toy area, slides, toys and games, while our older children can chill out in the teenage room with table tennis, game consoles, air hockey and much more.

Be sure to save some energy for our twice-weekly floodlit night skiing – both fun and memorable experiences for kids and parents alike, as well as an evening at one of Obertauern’s many buzzing après ski bars.

The Village of Obertauern:

Obertauern is a popular ski region in the far southeast of the region of Salzburg, in the Radstädter Tauern mountains. It ranges between heights of 1,630 and 2,526 m above sea level offering itself to Easter skiing. Obertauern is actually part of two districts, St. Johann/Pongau and Tamsweg. Consequently, the community is separated into two municipalities, Untertauern (Pongau) and Tweng (Lungau). The municipal boundary runs first at the altitude of the Radstädter Tauern pass, then through the centre of the village. The village itself is located high on the sunny side of the mountain, at 1,741 m.

Obertauern’s history dates back to the Celts (who inhabited the area from the 4th to the 1st centuries B.C.), and the Romans, who used the Tauern Pass to reach Salzburg. The Radstädter Tauern were first mentioned in 1207. The first skiers were recorded here in 1902, and the first lifts built in the ‘50s and ‘60s.

Nowadays Obertauern is a popular ski resort with lively, unobtrusive après-ski. Obertauern has actually been known for its nightlife ever since the Beatles made part of their film ‘Help’ here in 1965. Two legendary alpine huts are the Edelweißalm at 1,850 m with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain world and the Lürzer Alm in the centre of town with its rustic charm and famous après-ski parties.

Below is a selection of holiday reviews from past Easter skiing holidays with our single parent families in Obertauern, Austria:

"What an amazing week! This was our first SPOH holiday and indeed group ski holiday, and the quality of hotel, arrangements and the people we got to know was fantastic. Many friendships formed. The holiday is well hosted with 3 people on hand to help. Skiing with two young children, whilst always a little stressful initially, is made a lot easier in a group, and the hotel is perfectly set up with kindergarten and playrooms allowing for actual relaxation après ski. I thoroughly recommend joining, we will be back for many years to come! "
- Anita, Max (8) & Oscar (4) - single parent ski holiday in Obertauern, April 2019

"Another superb skiing holiday and a treat to spend the week with such a fun, inclusive and supportive group of people. The resort offers a good variety of well-linked pistes and, even late in the season, snow coverage was good. Both children were happy in ski school and loved having use of the children's room and pool. Thank you for everything SPOH, we look forward to joining you again next year."
- Elise, Sebastian (11) & Imogen (8) - single parent ski holiday in Obertauern, April 2019

"I was unsure what to expect on staying in a hotel with my six year old son. The whole experience was fantastic with so many other children for him to play in a safe environment with great facilities. While the hotel was super child friendly it add all the right touches and level of luxury to relax and unwind properly after a day on the slopes."
- Adrian & Reuben (6) - single parent ski holiday in Obertauern, April 2019

"A great holiday in Obertauern for my son and I. Hotel with its spa was amazing and the food so tasty. Also perfect organization made by fantastic hosts: Ian, Jacob are a real credit to Sandra ‘s company. They couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. Sandra was amazing.Thank you for looking after me and Gabriel aged 6 so well . No doubt we will use your company again and recommend it to others. "
- Lara & Gabriel (6) - single parent ski holiday in Obertauern, April 2019

"Our 8th holiday and 7th year with SPOC, and probably our best trip ever. We have been holidaying with Sandra since my daughter was 7, and even now she’s 15 it’s top of her list every year to book again. Sandra and the small dedicated team of familiar faces, deliver a holiday experience that no other company can ever come close too. With so many repeat travelers in the groups, firm friendships have been made over the years so thank goodness for the Solo trips now, as I was worried my trips with SPOC would be over once my daughter was 18 !"
- Tim & Libby (15) - single parent ski holiday in Obertauern, April 2018

"Our 3rd holiday with SPOH & what a holiday! The hotel far exceeded any expectations, we were looked after from start to finish. Even though now back home, we are still smiling; It's not often you call a skiing holiday relaxing but this one was. My daughter made firm friends, the ski school very friendly and approachable, the hotel staff didn't bat an eyelid about the kids and usual kid behaviour. Our group, although small was very friendly and everyone approachable. Daniella was her usual lovely self who couldn't do enough to accommodate all our individual requests.. even resulting in her taking my daughter to try the local foods that she now loves (but apparently hated!). I can't compliment the hotel enough and loved be able to ski back for lunch everyday. We will be booking a 4th..."

"A wonderfully relaxing holiday, thank you so much! Well organised, fabulous hotel, a good mix of lovely people and great hosting by Daniela and Jacob. Plenty of other children and a huge games room ensured Sebastian was fully entertained in the evening, leaving me to enjoy a bit of adult conversation. We're definitely up for a second SPOH week."
- Elise, Sebastian (9) & Imogen (6) - single parent ski holiday in Obertauern, April 2017

"My daughter and I have just enjoyed a second fantastic holiday with SPOH. Extremely well organised, fun group of people, fabulous accommodation / food and excellent skiing. We'll be back again next year! I would highly recommend a holiday with SPOH."
- Laura & Georgia (7) - single parent ski holiday in Obertauern, April 2017

I would highly recommend this holiday and I will be back next year."

- Jo & George (8) - single parent ski holiday in Obertauern, April 2017
