Enjoy the sound of silence as you leave the world behind you

The best place to perfect your cross-country technique before embarking on the high-altitude trail is on one of our two practice trails. One starts from just outside the  Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl in the centre of Obergurgl, next to the church, and measures  three kilometres.

The Hochgurgl practice trail is two kilometres long. It takes skiers from the chapel through snowy fields up past the treeline towards the Königstal Valley. Sections of this run are floodlit, with a separate hiking trail running alongside.

Once you have polished your technique, it's time to take on the 7km Pill/Angern/Poschach high-altitude trail. It starts at the car park next to the Hochgurglbahn cable car and offers magnificent views.
