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.

Just back from an Easter in Obergurgl. Can't believe you could ski such great conditions in mid April. Perfect pistes, sunshine and not a lift queue in sight for the entire trip. Modern fast lifts, friendly people; makes me wonder why I ever bother with France with all the tensions in the lift queues and rip off prices and bumpy worn out slushy pistes by lunchtime. Took a trip out to the glacier in Solden which was awesome and covered by the same lift pass (20 minutes on the free bus). Stayed at the Crystal Sportive with Crystal; best ski-in/out hotel ever, best boot room ever. All in all, 10 out of 10. I try not to go back to the same resort but in this case it's a definite return some day.
