From one ski area to the next!

Ski safaris with children in the Ötztal Valley

The run down from the Wurmkogel in Hochgurgl is particularly popular with families. This blue piste offers great views over the Ötztal Valley and is ideal for children. In fact, even the journey up in the cable car is a memorable experience itself!

The Rosskarbahn cable car takes guests from the front door of the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl up to the Festkogel ridge. Take piste number 3 to the Top Express, before hopping on the 3.6km cable car with great views of the Verwalltal Valley and Königstal Valley as you make your way from Obergurgl to Hochgurgl. A real winter safari with top skiing and breathtaking views!

The best pistes for children ...

... in the family-friendly Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area

The Festkogl ridge is the starting point for one of the resort's best family runs. This gentle 8km piste takes skiers past the top station of the Hohe Mut Bahn I cable car down into the valley and back to the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl.

Families staying at the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl should head to the Scheiber Sport rental shop in the basement, where children up to the age of 9 years receive a complete ski set free of charge if both parents hire skis from Scheiber Sport. The children's ski set includes skis, poles, ski boots and, of course, a helmet!
