The new children's area in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl is the perfect place for the resort's youngest guests to take their first turns on snow before heading out with the rest of the family to explore the many gentle runs throughout the resort that are just right for little legs.
Of the 110 kilometres of perfectly prepared pistes, 90 kilometres are graded as easy or intermediate, with the 35km of blue slopes the best place to experience top snow conditions and runs that are simple and fun for skiers of all ages.
Discover what Obergurgl-Hochgurgl has to offer. And when your legs start getting tired, simply stop for a break at one of the many mountain huts and enjoy the breathtaking views.
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 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!
The Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area has been designed to make it easy for families to meet up throughout the day.
That way everybody can ski as much and as fast as they want, before getting together for one last run down together to the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl for dinner.
