Tauplitz Ski Resort Austria

Tauplitz ski resort is reputedly a powder snow magnet that defies its relatively low altitude in the Steiermark (Styria) of Austria. Close to gorgeous Salzburg, it is easily accessible via a spectacular railway line via Lake Hallstatt & the freeride haven of Krippenstein. With mid-winter snow bases often exceeding 4 metres, Tauplitz should be on any powder hunters’ radar when the storms are rolling in from the north, just be aware of the potential weekend crowds that can descend upon this hill!

Skiing & Snowboarding, Lift & Terrain

The Tauplitz ski resort may not be the world’s highest or largest, in fact it is anything but. However its 1,150m of skiable vertical are known far & wide to attract masses of snow during particular storm cycles from the north. Despite low (ish) base elevations, the entire vertical can be skied in both valley villages. The skiable terrain is a little strange though, mainly due to the topography of the upper mountain plateau around Tauplitzalm.

Tauplitz Accommodation

Tauplitz ski resort has three main accommodation location options, both in the valley & mid-mountain. At around 1,650m altitude on a forested alpine plateau, Tauplitzalm has several excellent ski-in ski-out hotels for an authentic Austrian Alps mountain experience. Below via chairlifts & a valley run, the pleasant village of Tauplitz provides a multitude of hotels, apartments, holiday rentals & farm stays. At less than 900m elevation, the snow can be minimal in the village for parts of winter, but snow-making guarantees the valley trail.

Further away but still connected by a valley trail from the mountain, Bad Mitterndorf offers a larger, livelier town with a wide variety of hotels, many of which with expansive pool & spa areas. The ski resort is accessed by free ski bus up to the Mitterstein gondola, 5km away by road.
