Obertauern is in Salzburger Land, Austria - Place of a recent annual World Championchips. The resort has it own dedicated snowkite area. It's just upwind of a busy piste and is sometimes also used to teach total beginner skiers to snowplough. On one side there are some power lines (I assume they're not live, but can't be sure) and on the other side there is a road and some hotels. When I saw it, I couldn't believe that it was used to teach people to snowkite. 2 hours 15 mins from Munich. Drive past salzburg, past st. Johann. See also:,, wind conditions, weather camera.
