Snowy views in Obergurgl - Hochgurgl
Let your winter dreams come true in Obergurgl: Due to its altitude at 3,000 m above sea level, Austria's highest church village is one of the most charming winter sports resorts in Europe with guaranteed snow from mid-November to early May.
Obergurgl and Hochgurgl, located at the end of the Ötztal valley in Tyrol, offer absolute pleasure in all respects. Guaranteed snow is a matter of course here, so it is not surprising that this is regularly the first ski area in the Alps to open its season as early as mid-November. Here, the ski area begins where it has long since ended elsewhere: The two connected ski areas of Obergurgl and Hochgurgl stretch from 1,900 metres to over 3,000 metres with 110 kilometres of slopes and 24 cable cars and lifts. The huge range of ski slopes, optimally prepared runs, combined with the dreamlike alpine surroundings and panoramic views contribute to making your holiday in Obergurgl a holiday in a class of its own.
Enjoy the most beautiful descents, impressive views and quiet power spots with the certified mountain and ski guide and ski instructor. Freestylers of all levels shred in the Wurmkogl and Bruggenbodenlift fun parks and show off their skills on boxes, jumps, jips, rails and tubes, while freeriders feel a sense of sublime bliss in the snowy open terrain.
Here in the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area, everyone will find their favourite spot. The ski huts in the ski area itself will certainly be one of them. Here you can enjoy delicious Tyrolean home cooking, drink a freshly tapped beer and let the sun shine on your face.
Top Quality Skiing is what skiing in Gurgl is all about. The name actually says everything you need to know about the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski region: it is one of the top ski regions in the Austrian Alps. Due to the altitude of Obergurgl at almost 2,000 metres, skiing is quite normal from mid-November until May. And you are sure to find your favourite spot too. The ski huts in the ski area will certainly be one of them. Here you can enjoy delicious Tyrolean home cooking, drink a freshly tapped beer and let the sun shine on your face.
In addition to skiing on the slopes, freeriding provides active enjoyment. Experienced skiers can glide alone over the untouched deep snow slopes with good equipment, while beginners always rely on the support of professional ski instructors and guides. Go ski touring and leave your tracks in the glistening white, trudge through the crunching snow on snowshoes. Fantastic nature experiences for all sports fans. And if you don't have the necessary equipment, you can rent it from the numerous ski rental shops here in the Ötztal.
