Obergurgl Hochgurgl Ski Resort Austria

Obergurgl Hochgurgl ski resort is lusty beauty at the head of the snow laden Oetz valley (Oetztal) in the Tyrol of Austria. The high altitude & northerly aspect of Obergurgl Hochgurgl guarantee quality snow conditions & skiing for six months of the year. It is one of the first non-glacier based ski resorts in Austria to open every season.

To sweeten the deal, Obergurgl Hochgurgl has a super modern lift system, is opening up more lifted ski terrain for season 2018/19 (a rarity in Europe!) & any lift pass of 3 or more days duration includes the downstream behemoth that is the Soelden ski resort. See the Obergurgl Hochgurgl ski trail map here.
