Sunny pistes, panoramic views and feelings of freedom
Die Tauplitz is the biggest individual ski area in Styria, in the Ausseerland - Salzkammergut region, in the heart of Austria: the confluence of 43 piste kilometers between 900 and 1,965 m above sea level, on three mountains, with the Tauplitzalm as the hub for all the action. Spacious pistes have something to offer every skier: including sporty, extended runs next to the Mitterstein 8-passenger gondola for winter sports fans with the necessary strength and expertise. For their part, the broad sweeping pistes on the Lawinenstein and Schneiderkogel provide ideal conditions for gentler carving experiences – for families and everyone who wants to take a more laid-back approach to their skiing.
The pistes of Die Tauplitz mostly lie above the tree line. If you are lucky with the weather you will be able to ski from morning to evening in brilliant sunshine. The pistes also treat you to impressive panoramic views of the hundreds of surrounding mountain peaks. Broad vistas, endless skies and glistening snow crystals – on Die Tauplitz, you finally sense what freedom really means.
Die Tauplitz is one of the snowiest ski areas in the Alps. Modern snowmaking equipment does its part to ensure that we have a long winter season – generally from the end of November until after Easter. Our engineers match the pistes to the natural contours of the mountainside, with great sensitivity for snow and weather hconditions. No wonder, then, that our pistes have received multiple awards. You won’t have Wi-Fi or annoying speaker systems to distract you either. That was our conscious decision, so that you are able to feel the pure power of nature and take a deep cleansing breath.
Die Tauplitz is a mountain world unto itself – charming, authentic, vibrant, though not overcrowded, filled with variety. In addition to 43 piste kilometers, we feature a Kinderland in a sunny hollow protected from the wind, several ski schools, tree-free slopes for snowboarders, a night sledding hill, winter hiking paths with beautiful panoramic views, 177 km cross-country ski trails and the finest powder for freeriders. We are generally regarded as the best freeride area in Styria. If you ever want to explore beyond the boundaries of the spacious Tauplitz: Your ski pass valid for 1.5 days or longer is also accepted by our Schneebären-Card partners: Ski Riesneralm, Planneralm, Loser Altaussee and Kaiserau.
We also boast 18 ski huts and restaurants. All of them are right next to the pistes – some of them are well-known for their great party atmosphere and live music. You won’t find a staged après ski experience here, but we do love to party and have a good time – after all, the people of Ausseerland - Salzkammergut are a very friendly bunch. Most of the lodging and dining establishments are family-run. Here with us, you will get to know your hosts personally. You will receive an especially warm reception at the new "Die Tauplitzerin" restaurant located at the lift valley station. Incidentally: The valley station has been built new, a ski depot has been added and the car park has been expanded.
Due to the current situation, the hotels and restaurants must remain closed. However, we do not want to deprive you of our hut culinary delights, so our hut hosts have set up some take away areas for you. Click on "more" to see which huts are open.
