Rauris is a fairly quiet ski holiday destination but that is mainly because the people who ski here want to maintain the well-kept secret. Not only that, Rauris is a real village where people spend their lives all-year-round and isn’t just a purpose-built ski resort. Because of this, it has a distinct cultural charm that other ski destinations lack and is perfect for people who want to integrate with the locals a bit more on their travels.

The best time to visit this ski resort is during the snowy season but because this village is functional every month of the year, a summer hike through the mountains is certainly an attraction outside of the ski season. Although there aren’t as many slopes to choose from compared to other places, the vertical range is still over 1200m and the majority of runs here are catered towards beginners and intermediate skiers.
At the foot of the resort’s mountain is where you will find the beginner’s area. This offers a flat surface which is ideal for when just starting out and getting to grips with the technique. When you start to feel a bit more confident, head to the more advanced beginner’s area on the Kreuzboden side of the mountain. Right at the top of the mountain there are a number of blue runs which are perfect for intermediates that are looking to test and improve their skiing skills. The blue run under the Hochalm and Heimalm are amongst the most popular. The runs for advanced skiers are fairly limited in this resort.
Rauris has a fantastic range of accommodation to choose from, especially considering the size of the resort. It has anything from 4-star hotels to smaller family-run ones to self-catered apartments and B&Bs. Rauris rivals even the most exclusive resorts in the area but usually at a fraction of their price. Restaurants in Rauris are also top-quality with many serving up traditional Austrian cuisine as well as a number of pizzerias in the resort which are especially popular with the younger ones!
