The Tauplitzalm mountain plateau represents the unique world – charming and uncrowded. The 1,650 meter elevation guarantees not just breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views but also ideal skiing conditions from the first day of the season until the last ride in early April. Thanks to the location resulting into usually about 3 meters of natural snow, Tauplitz is actually one of the snowiest areas in the Alps. Additionally, modern snowmaking equipment does its part to ensure that the winter season is very long.

Alpen Arnika Hotel benefits from its unique skin-in/ski-out setup in the heart of the biggest individual ski area in Styria. It makes the hotel the starting point of several ski lifts and slopes including the carpet ski lift and the ski school for the little ones.

Tauplitz Ski Area

Tauplitz Ski Area Featuring 43 kilometres of pistes in total, Tauplitz has something to offer to every skier regardless of skiing skills. The sporty, downhill challenge piste next to the 2.5km-long Mitterstein gondola; sweeping and family-friendly slopes of Lawinenstein and Schneiderkogel for more laid-back skiers; and also gentle and easy runs for beginners. Furthermore, all winter sports fans experience breathtaking views of Alpen valleys and mountain ranges and feelings of total freedom due to skiing above the tree line most of the time.

Extending about 177 kilometres, both around Bad Mitterndorf and on the Tauplitzalm plateau, cross-country trails belong to the most beautiful ones in Austria. Carefully groomed for both classic and skating techniques, they provide perfect conditions for your crossing through the magic winter world. Additionally, the plateau is considered the best freeride terrain in Styria, creating a giant ski playground for freeriders with more than enough powder snow.

Do you need a break from skiing? An exciting nighttime sledding expedition or a horse-drawn sleigh ride in Bad Mitterndorf might be an excellent alternative how to enjoy the winter wonderland of Tauplitz.
