Skiing under the lights in Obergurgl in Tirol
As the sun slowly sets behind the Ötztal Alps, the action continues on the pistes of Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. Once a week the resort opens selected slopes in the evening hours for an unforgettable floodlight skiing experience. These runs can be accessed using the Festkoglbahn cable car next to the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl.
Each Tuesday the cable car stays open into the evening and whisks skiers and snowboarders through the night sky to the floodlit slopes in the resort.
Couples will love the romantic experience of moonlight skiing, while children and teenagers can try out the new skills they have learned during the day at ski school. A special experience not to be missed!
- Every Thursday the lifts are open from 18:30 until 22:00
- 8 km of floodlit ski slopes
- Spectacular ski show performed by Obergurgl Ski School
- Large firework display at the end
- Selected dates throughout season
"Stop off, breathe in the clean air and gaze up at the stars high above – night skiing is an activity you, your partner and your family will remember for many years." Scheiber family, E&G hosts
Experience the mountains by night
Night skiing offers guests the opportunity to experience some of the best slopes in Tyrol's most snowsure resort from a new perspective. Powerful floodlights illuminate selected pistes from top to bottom as the moon casts its pale light on the mountains above and the stars twinkle high in the sky. Up here at 2,000 m there is almost no light pollution, so stars hidden from view down in the valley shine brighter than ever.
Night skiing is offered throughout the season. Check out our offers for holidays at the Hotel Edelweis & Gurgl in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. If you have any questions, please get in touch using our live chat.
