Strengths and weak points


Children, Rauris is perfect for families the compact size makes it easy to navigate and facilities for learning the basics are 100% taken care of.

Variation in slopes, even though Rauris is one not the largest ski resort of Austria the resort offers a nice variation in slopes where from beginner to expert will enjoy themselves all day long.

Price level, Rauris is a smaller ski resort that like to put itself in the market at a competitive price, you will not find the masses you will find in places like Saalbach, Ischgl or ski Arlberg. ( if you are looking for a nice party and large ski resorts where you will not have to take the same slope twice? Then make sure to look at one of those resorts )

Weak points:

Flats, Rauris has a long path that connects the 2 areas with each other this path is fairly flat and snowboarders will have to take of there boards sometimes here.

Touring, if you like to make 50-90km long tours a day you will not be happy in Rauris, make sure to pick one of the larger Austrian ski resorts if this is what you are looking for.

Busy, during the Austrian and German winter holidays you will sometimes have to wait at the ski lifts.
