Visitor Reviews of Oetz

Skied Hoch Oetz for a day earlier this week.
In short a compact, mostly north facing family ski area situated between 1500-2270m with quick access by gondalbahn from Oetz.
Good variety of well groomed quiet pistes and efficient lift system, bar two older style chair lifts. For ultra keen diehards some of the runs could do with being longer but all in all, a great little place to ski. Stunning views, lovely mountain huts and no Brits so you really feel abroad.
Subsistence on mountain much cheaper than nearby big resorts with no compromise on quality.
Other pluses are it's less than 10 minutes off the A12 Inntlal autobahn and for those who want to ski different resorts every day Oetz is only 25 mins to Soelden and 35/40 mins to Obergurgl, St Anton, Ischgl and Kuhtai. Oetz also shares a lift pass with Kuhtai which is 20 mins away.
Oetz itsef is a lovely little town with good quality hotels and guest houses that are considerably cheaper than the aforementioned big resorts.
All in all, highly recommended and a classic case of less is more.
