The snow researchers open the ski season in Obertauern
The season opens on the 17th of November and that means that a really special group of individuals, also known as the “Snow Researchers”, gather again in Obertauern. Since the early eighties, this special group of people including Franz Beckenbauer, Uwe Seeler, Erich Ribbeck and Werner Zimmer has had the special honour of opening the skiing season in Obertauern.
