Obergurgl sits at the head of the Otzal Valley, a mere 90 minutes from Innsbruck and just 20 minutes from the larger resort of Sloden. Over 110 km of immaculate pistes offer good intermediate skiing and beginners should also find enough to keep them occupied for a week. Advanced skiers may have to look to the off-piste after a while or make the short journey to Solden after a few days to keep them happy. On the plus side, Obergurgl has an excellent snow record and there are, rarely any lift queues. The village, if you can call it that, is small and quiet. Not the liveliest of resorts but if it is the snow you came for then there is enough to feed and water you in the resort. If you get bored at Obergurgl, get a taxi to Solden which is much busier.

Visitor Reviews of Obergurgl

Chris from United Kingdom writes:

I've been skiing for over 30 years and skied the majority of resorts in Austria and France but Obergurgl is in my top two. It doesn't have extensive skiing and it doesn't have a bustling night life (Nederhutte excluded) but it oozes charm and character. There is rarely a lift queue, there is always snow and there are few boarders. If you put your mind to it you could ski the entire resort from one end and back again in a day but the slopes will be quiet, well groomed and in excellent condition, with stunning views. The majority of the lifts are quite modern (compared to most French resorts) and most of the chairlifts are covered and often have heated seats for particularly cold days. My only moan about the lifts is the T-bar that services the red run at the far left side at Hochgurgl. It's a long drag, needs to be a chair really.

Off to Obergurgl again in a fortnight, can't wait.
