For Easter 2025 we will stay at the superior 4-star Hotel Steiner at an altitude of 1,752 m.

The ski resort Obertauern:

Obertauern boasts some of the most reliable snow conditions in the Alps. Slopes reaching an altitude of 2,313 m, make Obertauern the perfect base for Easter skiing. Both skiers and snowboarders will feel at home here with a huge choice of blue, red and black runs, a snow park and the second steepest run in Austria.

Easter skiing with kids 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.

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 rooftop pool and 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 new kids club, complete with climbing equipment, slide, bobby cars, play kitchen, toys, and games. And for the best ski holiday with teenagers, our older children can chill out in the teenage room with table tennis, game consoles, air hockey, Nintendo Wii, and much more.

Be sure to save some energy for the floodlit night skiing and night tobogganing – both fun and memorable experiences for kids and parents alike, or  an evening at one of Obertauern’s many famous après ski bars. For those parents who feel more like relaxing in front of the fireplace after their 5-course gourmet dinner, the hotel bar is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine and good company.

The resort and village of Obertauern in Austria:

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.

Today Obertauern is a popular ski region in the southeast of the county Salzburg, in the Radstädter Tauern mountains. The highest slope is at 2,213 m ensuring snow safe skiing until the end of April.  You can ski the famous Tauern Circuit around the village clockwise or anti-clockwise on a mix of red and blue runs, and you are never far from the village. The village itself is located high on the sunny side of the mountain, at 1,741 m.

In 1965, Obertauern had a brush with fame when the Beatles filmed ‘Help’ here, evident in the many tributes and memorabilia in and around the village. Obertauern offers lively, unobtrusive après-ski. Two legendary après ski huts are the Edelweißalm at 1,850 m, with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain world, and the rustic Lürzer Alm in the centre of town famous for its après-ski parties.

Below is a selection of holiday reviews from our Easter ski trips in Obertauern with our single parent families between 2017 and 2024:

"We had a brilliant holiday in Obertauern . The resort is great for early intermediate skiers, with lots of easy runs that take you round the whole valley. We had fantastic sunshine on most days (Easter hols) so the snow was slushy and hard to ski in the afternoon but we were both very glad to hang out and relax in the hotel. Hotel Steiner is superb with fantastic luxury facilities and food and friendly helpful staff. We were taken excellent care of by the hosts, Andrea and Daniela, sorting out all the practicalities, but also quietly and unobtrusively attentive and reassuring so that everyone was included and we all had a really good time. We can't wait to go again. "
- Jackie & Reuben (15 y) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2024
"While this will seem like hyperbole, I can honestly say this was the best week's holiday I have ever enjoyed. The girls had the most wonderful time, made firm friends among the group and thrived on the secure independence which the whole arrangement gave them. Hotel Steiner is quite extraordinary (in the truest sense of the word) in terms of the provision for - and tolerance of - youngsters of all ages. The atmosphere fostered by the hotel and by the SPOH team was nurturing, supportive and friendly. This really was a near perfect holiday. Thank you!"
- Dave, Ava (8 y) & Naia (6 y) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2024
"First ski holiday. Kids had an absolute blast, learnt loads, made excellent friends and it was lots of fun. Ski school particularly superb! We’ll be back for sure."
- Chris, Tabitha (11 y) & Evan (7 y) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2024
"This was our second skiing holiday with SPOH, and I can't fault it. We came back as we had enjoyed the first year so much, and so there was an element of trepidation that this time it wouldn't live up to our high expectations. I didn't need to be worried! From the moment we set foot in Obertauern, we were greeted with a smile by our hosts Ian and Tracey, and were so well looked after throughout our time there, without anything being too intrusive. We met a really lovely bunch of people, with whom we had a fantastic week skiing, and have come away with new friends and great memories. I would recommend SPOH to anyone travelling on their own with children. It is a fantastic formula for both parents and children alike, allowing for time together as well as time making new friends. "
- Laura & Maisie (13 y) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2024
"I was nervous about taking my son skiing for the first time, and reading testimonials could see that others had felt the same and felt very supported by the hosts. I felt Andrea and Daniela were incredible hosts - making everything so easy from airport transfers, to finding our rooms, to hiring skis, to sorting out issues with the ski school and making sure everyone was having the holiday experience that worked for them. There was opportunity to do things as part of the group, but no pressure to do so. I was also very touched by their warmth and particularly by their care when my son had a thankfully minor non skiing accident. I am not sure it would be possible to be better looked after."
- Debra & Leo (7) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2024
"Another wonderful holiday with the SPOH crew. It is such an amazing formula for single parent families and totally brilliant for adults and kids alike. Everything is just spot on - lovely destinations and hotels, great kids facilities in the hotels, caring and super helpful hosts, lovely guests to get to know and relax with. SPOH has been a total game changer for us and our holidays; I only wish I had discovered them sooner in my journey as a single parent. "
- Alison & Rory (14) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2024
"SPOH was recommended by a friend and they did not disappoint. They are well organised and think of the details so you don't have to. I went with my 17-year teenage son and he had a great time. Sandra, Andrea and Gunther are fabulous hosts and very attentive. I would definitely go again but for adults only as my son will be an adult himself soon. I would recommend anyone with young children to book a holiday with this company."
- Bill & Harry (17) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2023
"I couldn't speak highly enough of our skiing holiday to Obertauern with SPOH. My daughter and I had a wonderful time and met some fantastic people along the way. The organisation was second to none, and I felt entirely reassured that everything was taken care of. The accommodation was of a very high standard, and access to the slopes was easy. The resort had plenty of skiing for us for the week, and our hosts Sandra and Andrea helped us to navigate and also to find people to ski with throughout the course of our stay. They were on hand to help us with anything we needed, always with a smile. We were both very sad to leave, the sign of a great holiday, and have come away with some lovely memories and new friends."
- Laura & Maisie (12) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2023
"Brilliant holiday!! We had every detail thought through and taken care of. The kids all quickly ran off to play together in the incredible facilities. Leaving adults to relax often together. I even got some time in the glorious adult only outdoor pool and spa. Me and my daughter are new to skiing and the lessons were awesome. Sandra and Andrea were really accommodating of the group and helped meet everyone's needs regardless of their ski level. We had groups going out together at paces that suited each individual. We made some great friends and we are already planning a meet up with my daughters new "BFF". If you want a hassle free, fun, relaxing ski holiday with the kids - you couldn't ask for more than SPH and this location and hotel is brilliant - guaranteed snow for the time of year, incredible facilities, food, location - 5* all the way!"
- Jennifer & Kayla (7) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2023
"Both my son and I had a wonderful time. Sandra is an incredibly attentive host. This was my third trip with SPOH and I plan to go on more."
- Warren & Alfie (14) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2023
"Another year, another fabulous SPOH Obertauern ski holiday. Sandra and Andrea are wonderful hosts and everything was so well organised and made so easy for us. Obertauern is a great resort for Easter skiing and the hotel is amazing for adults and children alike, with great food and facilities (rooftop pool/spa/children's play areas and family pool). Everyone on our trip was so friendly and funny and firm friendships were formed for both my daughter and me. We love everything about holidaying with SPOH and can't wait to travel with SPOH again."
- Rebecca & Alexandra (7) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2023
"Amazing, great fun, Sandra and Andrea are super professional and attentive (picking me up from the slopes) .
Always happy to go anywhere with them!"

- Ewa & Maja (14) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2023
"We had a fantastic holiday. Great food and a lovely ski in -ski out location perfect for families and skiers of different abilities. I felt confident that Sandra and Andrea were available to help with any issues I had and was relieved to meet like minded and fun families. "
- Kathryn, Jess (12) & Erin (8) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2022
"It was so well organised that I didn’t really have to think about anything. The group of people were great and likeminded so I felt immediately relaxed. My daughter enjoyed hanging out with new friends so I had time for myself as well as enjoying grown up conversation over a few drinks and delicious food. "
- Amy & Isabelle (11) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2022
"We had such a wonderful ski holiday with SPOH. It was our first trip with SPOH and I wasn't sure what to expect but we had an enjoyable and relaxing time that actually felt like a holiday! The hotel and pool were amazing and we loved Obertauern, which was a great place for my daughter to learn to ski. She loved going to ski school with her new friends and spending time with them in the play room and pool at the hotel. We loved the service offered by SPOH and the security of travelling with other families and would definitely book with SPOH again."
- Rebecca & Alexandra (6) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2022
"Great bunch of people, great skiing, great food.
Many thanks DANIELA for black run adventure. Made Maja's so thrilled. See you soon! x

- Ewa & Maja (13) - single parent ski holiday Obertauern, April 2022
"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..."
- Lindsay & Anne (7) - single parent ski holiday in Obertauern, April 2018
"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
"George had a blast - lots of kids around his age.
I would highly recommend this holiday and I will be back next year."

- Jo & George (8) - single parent ski holiday in Obertauern, April 2017
"A great holiday with everything organised to ensure a stress-free experience."
