Rauris and the surrounding area is the ideal place for a family skiing holiday offering
around 36 Kilometres of ski slopes designated to accommodate every ability. Rauris
alone has over 20 well groomed ski runs to enjoy.
The peak of the mountain at 2,175m above sea level gives you fantastic views of the
mountains providing many picturesque descents down through beautiful tree lined pistes.
Even the base of the mountain is still above 1,000m high, therefore giving you a
better chance of snow where lower resorts may leave you disappointed.
The main gondola station (with ski school & ski hire) is less than five minutes walk
from the apartment and there are no lengthy lift queues that you may find at other
resorts. The total lift system comprises of two gondola cabin lifts (the second getting
you to the mountain peak), 1 double chair lift and 7 tow lifts. Rauris also has snow
making equipment on the more popular slopes.
It's an ideal environment for children, beginners and intermediate skiers with two
English speaking ski schools available. There is also plenty of off-piste action,
a 600 metre vertical black run to cater for the more experienced skier or snowboarder.
For the children there is a purpose built "kinder club" ski area (via the local Karl
Maier Ski School) with a fun train, a magic carpet and snow disco for all the children
to enjoy. This is conveniently located at the base of the gondola next to the snack
Rauris treats sporting individualists to a home-away-from-home atmosphere and invigoratingly
beautiful countryside. You, too, can experience the sensation of infinite freedom
as you ride the summit lift to embark on an exciting skiing adventure!
