Straddling the Austrian-Italian border in the breathtaking Tirolean Alps, the Nauders ski resort is located near the Reschenpass mountain pass.
This ski area is home to some of the most impressive 3000m-high mountains in Austria, Italy and Switzerland: the Weißkugel Mountain, Cevedale Mountain, Königsspitze Summit and “its majesty” Ortler Mountain line this sunny plateau.

The resort's pistes stretch all the way up to 2,800 metres above sea level. Located directly on the Main Alpine Ridge, with slopes between 1,400 and 2,800 metres above sea level, the Nauders-Bergkastel resort near the Reschenpass mountain pass is blessed with plenty of snow during the winter months.
Here, there are 120km of ski runs with guaranteed snow, 28 high tech ski lifts and 110km of cross-country ski trails - a paradise for all winter sports lovers. Long, wide slopes at high altitudes (up to 9km long), excellent off piste and some spectacular mogul fields will keep even the most demanding skiers satisfied. Among the most popular is the run from the Gueser Kopf at 2,745 metres above sea level down through the Schafkar in the Nauderer Tschey area of the resort. "Die Schwarze", literally "The Black One", is the toughest piste in the resort and will challenge even expert skiers with its steep gradient and fiendishly tricky moguls. For freeriders, there are five routes in powder snow, three of them are the South West Route, the Down Under and the Border Route.
With plenty of excellent facilities for children, this really is a great choice of ski area for a family ski holiday. Beginners and those returning to the sport will find easy slopes next to the bottom of the cable car, while at the top of the Bergkastel cable car there is the "Nauderix Kinderland" for toddlers and youngsters finding their snow legs. Highlights include an adventure forest, bumps runs, a snow tunnel, a children's restaurant and even a mini snowpark.

Nauders apres ski
Nauders offers not only the ideal ski area, but also attracts with several possibilities to celebrate with fellow skiers after a day on the slopes. A series of bars and pubs invite with their hot mulled wine and other treats. If that's not yet enough, great parties till 3 in the morning are on. The Monkey Pub or the Yeti-Bar are good fun and invite to stay till the early morning hours. But that is not all - as a special event the "Show in Show" awaits every week. After the show, there is a huge party on the Lächern alp.
In the historical town centre you will find traditional charming buildings, small alley ways and fountains. Because most of the modern buildings have been built in the outlaying areas, the town centre has managed to retain its traditional character.
Home to three indoor swimming pools, spa centres, and an ice rink, the town has many evening activities. For dinner there are many restaurants to choose from, serving a variety of cuisines. And Nauders has a few bars where you can enjoy the après ski hours.
