For all who want to experience some typical Austrian après ski, Rauris is the true location. A nice sterting place for après ski is the Heimalm outdoor bar where beautiful panorama and super ambiance go together well. Scenic beauty and good atmosphere you'll also find in the Sportalm at the Kreuzboden valley descent. Convenient here is the only short ans easy descent to the valley after your après ski adventure. Anoother 'must' for après ski fans is the "Hubertus-Schirmbar" at the Hochalm Bahnen valley-station. Night crawlers can continue their adventure in the Rauriser pubs until early in the morning. The Rauriser pubs do not suffer from dictated closing times and can stay open until they find it suitable.

Tobogganing in Kolm Saigurn
Contact the Ammererhof or Naturfreundehaus in the valley end 'Kolm Saigurn' and against a small fee you will be picked up at the 'Bodenhaus' at the beginning of Kolm Saigurn to where you can drive by car. From this pick up point you'll be taken up hill along the toll road of Kolm Saigurn with a length six kilometers. The transport will be by a powerfull snow scooter with ten seats. It is a very special experience. In Kolm Saigurn you can enjoy a meal and beverage in either the Ammererhof or Naturfreundehaus.

Toboggans are available at the Naturfreundehaus against a small fee and down it goes along the toll road back to the pick up point in the valley. A specialty is the moonlight tobogganing, once a month at full moon. Because of the masses of snow and the full moon the whole scenery is lit up in a fairytale kind of way which obviously creates a unique atmosphere.
