Obergurgl-Hochgurgl in short

  • Fast, modern ski lifts
  • Excellent snow conditions
  • Ski-in, ski-out ski area

In the 1930s, ski enthusiasts discovered the ski resort of Obergurgl and its easily accessible slopes. This area developed to become the outstanding Ötztal ski area with guaranteed snow cover. Many hotels were built in Obergurgl back at this time to provide accommodation for the flux of skiers who came to discover the wonderful skiing here. Most of these hotels still exist today and give Obergurgl a traditional Austrian charm here that makes this resort extremely popular. The ski areas of Obergurl and Hochgurgl, which make up the Ötztal ski area, can be reached from various different modern, efficient ski lifts. Most ski slopes in this area are red and blue offering both beginners and intermediate skiers the chance to have lots of fun while practicing and improving their skills. The ski areas of Hochgurl and Obergurgl are connected by a gondola - please note that it closes at 4pm but don't worry too much as there is also a regular bus service that runs between these resorts.

With 110km of beautifully prepared ski slopes, the Ötztal ski area has something for everyone. There are a couple of exhilarating, high-altitude black runs for the more advanced skiers and plenty of gentle runs back down to the resorts making for a gentle return at the end of the day. As this ski area is one of the highest in Austria, ski holidays in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl are normally guaranteed excellent snow conditions well into May. It goes without saying that up at 3000m, you'll be treated to some unforgettable panoramic views of the Dolomites too. In Obergurgl, lifts start directly from the resort and you can ski back to almost any accommodation. Ski-in, ski-out resorts are always popular for family ski holidays and this is one of the reasons that families love Obergurgl. 'Ski Away Days' on Sölden's glacier area easily accessible and are well worth the trip.
