After a warm up run down from the Festkogl Alm restaurant, we headed over to Hochgurgl on the Top Express. We enjoyed the winding run down to the Hochgurglbahn mid-station to avoid the lift queues, and then skied down to the Crosspoint restaurant and explored the area off the top of the gondola. There were some good snow conditions to enjoy at slightly lower altitudes too, and then we headed straight up to the Top Mountain Star restaurant for a hot chocolate and coffee stop and excellent views across to the Dolomites. We negotiated the tricky runs off the top before skiing down to the Top Express and returning to Obergurgl, where we looked forward to the skidoo ride over to the Schonwieshutte restaurant from the top of the Schermerbahn, to take our lunch break. We enjoyed the ride down which was the fun run of the day and spent a lazy lunch on the terrace before going our separate ways at the bottom of the Hohe Mut Alm at the end of a great week.
It was a typical spring day, with warm sunshine all day. A great day for spring skiing with excellent visibility.
Good Friday church service in the highest church in Europe. Today is the last day of our leader operation in Obergurgl this season. Thank you to all members and non-members who have joined us for some great skiing out here in Otztal. Happy Easter everybody and see you next year!
