Gamsleiten Criterion 2017

Austrias largest treasure hunt

On 17th April 2017, Obertauern is staging the probably funniest and largest treasure hunt in Austria for the tenth time. This unique event is one of the biggest winter highlights every year at the resort.

Where else can you live a gold-digger's dream as you scrape through the snow in the midst of the Alps, to the sound of music, with a magnificent view – and win a luxurious BMW.

A total of 30 chests are hidden – all of them containing prizes, and all of them exciting reasons to participate in the quest. The car from BMW X1 is the first prize, obviously. But there are 29 other treats for ambitious diggers, including non-cash prizes and travel vouchers.

Gamsleiten 2 – one of the steepest ski slopes in Europe and Obertauern's unofficial landmark – is where the search party will rummage its way through the snow on 17th April 2017.

And don't worry – on the morning after the event, the Gamsleiten piste will already be perfectly groomed, just like all the other 100 km of slopes in springlike Obertauern, guaranteeing top conditions even in April.

Ticket price: € 50,-  

(print@home fee € 2.--)
