Obergurgl-Hochgurgl in short

  • A small, attractive ski resort
  • No queues at the lifts
  • Wide and sunny slopes for all levels
  • A great family destination

At an altitude of 1930 metres, the ski resort of Obergurgl-Hochgurgl is actually the highest parish in Europe. Thanks to its location, the ski area has guaranteed snow all through its long winter season. Boasting over 100 kilometers of ski slopes for skiers of all levels, you can certainly understand why the Austrian ski resort of Obergurgl is so ridiculously popular.

The ski resort of Obergurgl has a lot of character and because there is no through traffic, you will enjoy the lovely, peaceful feel here. Most of the ski slopes are wonderfully wide and usually very sunny meaning beginners and intermediate skiers feel perfectly at home here right away. Ski in, ski out accommodation is almost everywhere in Obergurgl as you can ski back to nearly all the accommodation making this resort a very stress-free place to be. The apres-ski here has always been popular with British skiers and it's not surprising - good, old-fashioned, jolly, glass-raising fun can be had almost everywhere here. Obergurgl has stood the test of time and can compete well with many of the more modern ski resorts across the Alps.
