Situated in the Ötz Valley, Obergurgl is Austria's highest parish. The resort is framed by high altitude peaks and is famous for having an excellent snow record - resulting in some of the most snowsure skiing in Europe and a very long season.
The skiing and lifts start directly from the village. And as Obergurgl is relatively small, with lifts at either end, it's quick and easy to get up the mountain. There’s a free ski bus that regularly travels along the valley. And many of the hotels are really close to the slopes - so you might be able to ski right back to your door at the end of the day.
The mid-mountain Top Express gondola links Obergurgl with neighbouring Hochgurgl, for easy access to the extended ski area. The reliable snow and quiet pistes make both resorts a popular choice with families and a safe bet for those after gentle and intermediate runs.
Off the slopes, Obergurgl remains largely unspoilt - oozing character, charm and tradition. Plus there's a great selection of après ski bars, beer kellers and restaurants. If you want to take in the best views in the resort, head up the gondola to the iconic Top Mountain Star restaurant at 3,082m. This futuristic-looking building sits perched on top of the mountain and has phenomenal 360° panoramic views of the Ötz Valley Alps and the Italian Dolomites.
Obergurgl's jam-packed with top-quality hotels that really know a thing or two about great hospitality and service. Plus the vast majority have spa and wellness facilities that should easily satisfy the most experienced sauna and massage aficionados.
