NIEDERAU-OBERAU, AUSTRIA BEGINNER SKI HOLIDAYS
The twin ski holiday resorts of Niederau & Oberau are part of the Wildschonau valley, offering some of the most popular beginner ski terrain in the region. The Wildschonau Valley is pretty, tranquil and one of the most popular first timer destinations in the Alps. The skiing is ideal for beginners with gentle, forgiving tree lined ski pistes. Better skiers and snowboarders will need to head down the valley to the Wildschonau ski area of Auffach for more intermediate terrain.
