Obergurgl Ski Resort
Obergurgl has long been a Ski Club favourite thanks to its incredible snow record, traditional mountain village and reputation as a family friendly resort.
Almost all the ski area sits above 2000m and most is well above this, which, coupled with a powerful snowmaking system, ensures that Obergurgl possesses one of the longest and most reliable seasons in the Alps. The terrain is above the tree-line and favours beginner and intermediate skiers, but there is some good off piste to explore for more advanced skiers. So popular with members is the resort that this year’s Freshtracks Obergurgl On Piste Week sold out well in advance – get booking early next year!
The village itself is the highest parish in Austria and has retained a lot of its traditional charm. It is split into three parts, one by the Rosskarbahn, the other by the Festkogelbahn and the third – named Hochgurgl – lies 200m higher up the Timmelsjoch road. Obergurgl is generally pretty quiet, but there is a good selection of restaurants and bars and a couple of lively spots for an après drink.
Our Ski Club Leader Service has been in operation in Obergurgl for many years now and is one of our most popular destinations for members. Join them on the slopes or for a drink during the nightly social hour at the Hotel Edelweiss and Gurgl between 15th December and 13th April this season.
