    More about the skiing in Obergurgl

  • So what's it like?

    Recently voted the most snow sure resort in Europe, a fantastic area

    Situated in the spectacular Ötz Valley, Obergurgl is Austria's highest parish, resulting in an excellent snow record and a very long ski season. The village remains largely unspoilt with a charming ambience and a selection of traditional après ski bars and beer kellers. The skiing and lifts start directly from the village, with skiing back at the end of the day to virtually all the hotels we feature. Head for the spectacular 'Top Mountain Star' restaurant at 3082m for some breathtaking views.

    Ski information

    Ski Information Beginners

    One of the big things Obergurgl is famous for is the snow quality – and that matters a lot when you are learning. When you ski for the first time on perfect carpeted fresh snow it makes learning so much easier. Obergurgl is also known for high levels of service and this is mirrored by the ski school which is exceptional. Plus you get a real Austrian feel and mountain atmosphere here along with stunning views. As a first ski trip it would be hard to top this - it's an ideal base for beginners with plenty of forgiving blue runs, some rising to almost 3,000m with spectacular views.

    Ski Information Intermediates

    Pistes on the Festkogl and Gaisberg in Obergurgl are mainly above the tree line and lead right down to the village. Experience some exciting tree skiing around the Steinmann lift, while Hochgurgl offers a variety of long challenging runs.

    Ski Information Advanced

    The area has some surprisingly good advanced skiing. The Höhe Mut is one of the Tirol's biggest bump runs. Sattel has some great off-piste and the exhilarating Festkogl ski route is steep and unforgettable in fresh powder. On the Hochgurgl side you can head for the Königstal for excellent off-piste or try the black runs down from the top of the Wurmkogl at 3082m.
