What's it like at Obergurgl resort?
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
Tirolerhund from United Kingdom writes:
I ski Obergurl regularly for the odd day each winter. They market it as "The Diamond of the Alps" and with good reason.
It's super snow sure, remote and exclusive without being ridiculously priced. This ensures the pistes are quiet throughout the season which increasingly is a huge bonus. You'll know what I mean if you've been to St Anton or Ischgl in recent years.
With over 110km of piste and a good range of blues, reds and blacks, plus superb off-piste and ski mountaineering opportunities there is something for everyone here.
The lift system is superb and is regularly updated, with an extension to the Kichenkarbahn installed three years ago. For this winter the 4 man chairlift in front of the Hotel Edelweiss has been replaced with a new 12 person, two stage gondelbahn to the top of Festkogel; happy days.
Apres-ski is good, with the legendary Neder Hut being the pick of the bunch.
Overall, a superb place to spend a week.
