Wonderful Tyrol atmosphere, very friendly people and some very jolly apres-ski! Excellent skiing and great ski instructors - who all speak excellent English. The kids loved it!

Excellent snow cover and no queues

I have been going to Obergurgl for about 18 years and in my opinion it's going downhill. The skiing is great, but there are more and more tourists and especially rich tourists. Each year there is less of a cosy atmosphere; doesn't feel as authentic anymore. You're better off at Fiss Serfaus

Lovely long, broad slopes

Outside school holidays this resort is heaven. No waiting at the lifts, and there are plenty of wide slopes and beautiful views and you can often feel alone. Because there are not very many hotels in Obergurgl it never seems to get busy on all slopes. The resort is high enough for guaranteed snow conditions. but not really great for modern apres-ski - they seem to have got stuck in the 80s! Nice village atmosphere and friendly people. Recommended!

Nothing has changed in years!

I take that back - the ski lifts have been renovated or replaced - thankfully! We first came here with our young kids back in the 70s - yes ok!! Now they are grown up and take their own kids skiing in France! We came back to Obergurgl recently and found that nothing has changed, even the hotels are still run by the same people - some of the staff even rememebered us !! The prices seem reasonable compared to what my kids report back from skiing in France and the warm welcome, good food and nice, gentle skiing was a delight! We had a super sunny week after heavy snowfalls the previous week - just perfect - only thing that was missing was the family! Have to persuade them to come with us next year.

Traditional ski holiday atmosphere

I went to Obergurgl for the first time with a group of friends. We stayed in a chalet right in the centre with everything on the doorstep - what a treat - no cars, buses, crowds and trucking around with ski gear! Slopes and apres-ski were less than a 5 minute walk way. The people were super friendly, and the food just great. The skiing here is simple with wide pistes and plenty of easier slopes for the less experienced (my Mrs for example!). Snow conditions were perfect and the slopes were well looked after just like everything else here. Obergurgl is a traditional ski resort which looks like it hasnt changed for years. I would strongly recommend Obergurgl for any kind of skier - beginner, expert, boarder or young familes - we saw all sorts and everyone seemed to be having a great time!
