Skiing in Wildschönau
The Wildschönau's skiing is a fragmented affair with the largest areas above Niederau and Auffach and half a dozen small separate beginner areas next to the villages themselves. A free ski bus links the various areas. Niederau has perhaps the most varied terrain, whilst Auffach, with largely intermediate category skiers, has the biggest vertical and highest lifts. Oberau itself has five parallel drag lifts next to one another along a road that runs out above the village. They serve about a dozen short beginner runs on wide sunny meadows beneath the forest. There is also one longer drag serving an intermediate descent.
Niederau's skiing is the main attraction for advanced skiers with the three black runs all here, including an excellent mogul run beneath the new Markbachjoch gondola with a vertical drop of nearly 700 metres. Ski touring is another opportunity with a ski school guide. Auffach's two stage gondola accesses more than half a dozen reds and the most snowsure skiing in the area, including some above-treeline terrain where powder can build up that's pretty well absent elsewhere.
Cross country skiers will find 50km (31 miles) of trails along the valley floor.
Snowboarding in Wildschönau
With a family feel, two thirds of the terrain graded easy and ninety per-cent of the terrain served by drag lifts, most of them T bars, Niederau and Oberau will not appeal to the hardcore 'boarder. There are plus points to the area however, including a fun park with half pipe at Auffach which, along with Niederau, has top to bottom gondola access. Niederau has some fun terrain with natural terrain features on the long fast black down from the gondola, so if you approach the place with an open mind, you can have a lot of fun. There's also a Race 'n' Boarder Arena in Niederau.
Wildschönau Aprés Ski
Niederau is generally regarded as the liveliest choice of the three. The Dorfstub'n Fun-Pub there offers dancing and live entertainment every Sunday from 8:30 pm. The café at the Simmerlwirt is often lively as soon as the lifts closes and sometimes has live music.
All of the villages organize music evenings several times weekly and the ski school in Niederau throws a snow party every week. Lively evening toboggan parties with glühwein and moonlit sleigh rides to fondue parties are the order of the day.
The local brew is a version of schnaps made from turnips!
