Various levels of difficulties ensure that beginner, as well as pros can really enjoy themselves here.

From seasons 2017/18 winter there is something new at Schatzberg: the 4-person gondola is modernised and turned into an 8-person gondola, offering more comfort and shorter waiting times.

Families and pleasure skiers will most enjoy Schatzberg and Reither Kogel, where the little one's are in good hands in Bodo's children's club! Since 2016/17 there is the new Eva-Maria Brem giant slalom racing track at Reither Kogel where you can measure your speed! Ambitious skiers can swing down the northern mountain side of the Markbachjoch and Lanerköpfl, as well as speed through various deep powder snow areas and free rider areas with 16 km of marked ski routes.

These various piste offers can be easily reached with complementary ski bus. For snowboard freaks there are various options to run riot: in the snow park at the Wiedersberger Horn, the fun park at Schatzberg and the Race'n'Board Arena in Niederau - all offering loads of fun and action!

Those, looking for some more diversity can upgrade the lift pass to the Super Ski Card (see Ski Region). You can access 22 ski regions in Tyrol and Salzburg, with 2,750 km of pistes, accessible via 943 lifts. Unlimited skiing fun!

Night skiing Oberau

If you want to go skiing at night time, the ski area Ski Juwel is one of the best night skiing areas in Austria. At Reither Kogel in Reith, there are 3 illuminated pistes with a total length of approx. 6 km. The lifts Reitherkogelbahn, Nordlift and Brandachlift are operating for night skiing every Friday and Saturday from 18:30 - 21:15. Additionally, the family piste is illuminated for ski touring every Tuesday at the same time, the lifts, however, are not open then. In Wildschönau nearby Oberaus, the Roggenboden ski area offers night skiing and night tobogganing on two broad pistes with snowmaking system on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 19:30 - 21:00. The tickets for night skiing in Reith and Roggenboden can each be acquired in resort.

Après ski Oberau

Oberau is a great starting point for skiers who, in addition to skiing, also want a relaxing holiday. The bars and gasthofs in the resort indulges you to relax and enjoy a good meal and drink after a long day on the slopes.

From the 2016/2017 season, winter sports fans can look forward to the new Norderbergalm ski hut at Markbachjoch. Here you a well cared for with hot and cold drinks and regional dishes.

Those who don't want to opt out on good aprés ski can take the comfortable "Nightliner" to the resorts of Wildschönau, to enjoy and take part in the varied nightlife offered. Among others, the "Bobo's-Heustadl-Bar" at the Markbachjohn valley station or the "Gruttn-Bar" at the Schatzbergbahn valley station are good choices for hungry and thirsty skiers.

Still haven't had enough of snow-fun after a day in the slopes? In the town district of Roggenboden, night-tobogganing and night skiing regularly take place.

If you prefer a more laid-back and romantic evening, you shouldn't miss a stroll after sunset in the "Geheimnisvolle Schlucht" (mysterious ravine) with a torchlight hike and mulled wine. Enchanted horse-sleigh-rides are not uncommon here, and can turn your winter holiday into quite an extraordinary experience.

Snowpark: Family-Park Schatzberg Oberau

The ski area "Ski Juwel Alptachtal Wildschönau" not only offers wonderful pistes, but also has a respectable offer for freestyle opportunities! Pros and beginners can find a snow park at Schatzberg, at the Thalerkogl lift, which is a real diamond within the ski area.

Is today a day for relaxing or rather a day for rocking the pipe? Not sure? Then off you go to the "Family-Park"! Beginners and pleasure riders will find two straight boxes there and also a rainbow box, of each 4 meters length. The 6-metre kicker and wave ride however are also great to try out.

Is that too boring for you? There are also more challenging lines for those who are seeking a bit of action: the 8-metre straight-, curved- and kinked boxes let adrenaline junkies' hearts beat faster. And all this in front of breath-taking panorama. To complete the perfect offer there is also a 130 m long half-pipe and a kicker with 14-metre table available in the park. Contests are organised here, underlined by a great sound system. In the "Family-Park" you can be sure to find fun and community for all ages.

If you are looking for a real kick, you should definitively go and visit the "race 'n' boarder area" at the Tennladen slope. This place has been the starting point for many a racer's career and this might be the place for challenging a new experience. Curious? Then off you go and be part of the freestyler scene in the Alpbachtal.
