Obergurgl

Ski Obergurgl and Hochgurgl for snow-sure slopes, doorstep skiing and good quality hotels - all of which combine to create an enjoyable ski experience.

Nestling high up at the end of the Ötz Valley and surrounded by glorious peaks and glaciers, this is one of the most popular Austrian ski areas.

With a range of red and blue runs it is small enough that you can easily meet up with friends on the slopes, at the popular Nederhütte mountain hut or down in Obergurgl itself.

Recent improvements have made skiing holidays in Obergurgl & Hochgurgl even more convenient, with a new ski school meeting place at the bottom end of Obergurgl village and easy gondola access to the top of the mountain and over to Hochgurgl.

It really is a first class destination for a fun-fuelled ski break.
