Cruise the pistes

Spacious, sunny and snowsure

While in some resorts the ski lifts top out at around 1,800 metres above sea level, here in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl they start at that altitude and stretch all the way up to 3,080 metres above sea level. It is this altitude at the end of the Ötztal Valley, combined with state-of-the-art snowmaking facilities, which means the resort is able to offer one of the longest seasons of any non-glacier resort in Tyrol: from the middle of November all the way through until early May.

The wide range of different slopes in the resort cater for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities, from beginners and children all the way through to racers and freestylers. The Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl in the heart of the resort is the perfect base camp for an unforgettable skiing holiday in the Austrian Alps.
