This small group of Tyrolean resorts south of the Inn Valley are beautifully situated in a wooded area, which offers a wide range of easy, tree-lined pistes, and with mainly north facing slopes it enjoys good snow conditions.
PGL has accommodation in the heart of Niederau and in Oberau.
Extensive development of the lift system has taken place in recent years. A new link between Auffach in the Wildschönau valley and Alpbach over the Schatzberg mountain was completed in December 2012 with the addition of a new 8 man gondola from Inneralpbach to the Pechalm mid station and then up to the Schatzberg with a new piste created between the two.
