    The Seekarspitz fast quad chair is to be replaced by an eight-seater with all mod cons, travelling at 6 m/s.

    Summary

    Obertauern’s combination of attractions is unique. If you’re hooked on Austrian mountain huts and après-ski but looking for a change from slush and ice at village level, moving up in the world by 1000m or so could be just the ticket. But note the minus points.
