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

max from United Kingdom writes:

Obergurgl is a lovely place to go and ski in and it is great fun for me as I've only skied for a maximum of 5 years. It's very enjoyable and it always feels secure when you're there.
