About Rauris - presentation, information, photos and recommendations
Rauris - the golden alpine resort!
The resort of Rauris, situated in the Rauris Valley at an altitude of 950 m, is one of the oldest settlements in the Alps. In the olden days, it was gold mining that enticed visitors to this idyllic village in the Salzburger Land, as gold panning was the main source of income for the inhabitants here at the end of the twenties. Nowadays, this tranquil resort has become ever popular with tourists, yet it has not lost its roots. The Hochalm gondola and the Kreuzboden gondola enable easy access to the Rauris' ski area, which is particularly suitable for families and those looking for peace and quiet. After a day on the piste, you can while away your time either by taking part in one of the many sports activities offered here or in a sociable lodge evening. Definitely worthwhile is a snow-shoe tour through the "Rauris virgin forest".Ski
With the "Rauris-Hochalm" lift pass you have access to 32 kilometres of piste and 10 modern lift systems. The Gipfelbahn gondola will transport you comfortably up to 2,175 m, where there is a sensational view of the surrounding mountain terrain. In particular, families will enjoy the ski area of the Rauris Hochalm gondola, as the predominantly easy to medium difficulty pistes offer pure fun.
Novices usually start off on the generally treeless open pistes at the Gratlift and at the Gipfelbahn lift. However, this ski area has something to offer even those more experienced and demanding skiers with its interesting pistes, divine deep snow runs and fun park! Particularly recommendable to more experienced skiers is the 5 km long Heimalm-Rauris valley run. Furthermore, tons of fun awaits skiers of all skill levels on the 700 m long "fun slope" with steep curves, waves, kickers and a "snail" as well as the 10 km long run to Rauris from the mountain station of the Gipfelbahn lift over Kreuzboden, which conquer a 1,235 m difference in altitude.
The Hochalmbahnen racing piste is perfect for high speed fanatics. With its automatic time measurement, you can measure your personal speed thrill.
By upgrading your lift pass to the Super Ski Card, you can choose between more than 2,750 km of piste and 937 lifts in 23 ski regions!
The recreational possibilities in the quiet town of Rauris have something for every type of holidaymaker. You can round off a day on the piste with a tobogganing party on the lit Kreuzboden lift. The 2 km long toboggan run is also open during the day and offers all sorts of fun for young and old. Tobogganing after 19:00 is not included in the lift pass, however. Somewhat gentler is a horse-drawn sleigh ride, a torch-lit hike or snow shoe hike through the romantic valley. Adrenaline junkies will certainly get what they need when ice-climbing or paragliding.
Various evening entertainment options are available. A must for all apres ski fans is the "Heimalm", which entices with a 20 m long heated bar and delicious drinks. The "Maislaualm" at the Hochalmbahn valley station is great for a cosy après ski atmosphere. Night owls can amuse themselves in the "Rauriser Stadl" until the wee hours of the morning. If you'd rather have a quieter evening and a good meal, you will be spoilt for choice in the diverse mountain restaurants, taverns and inns.
Starting in Rauris you can easily access the
well built cross-country trail network in the Rauris Valley. You have at your disposal a total of 30 km of tracks, of which a 6 km long track starts directly in Rauris, at the Gasthof Maislau.
You ski along a blue marked route through the valley, with the destination Jausen station Kohlhub. Following the circuit tracks, you'll get back the same way to the start.
