New Rosskarbahn mountain lift
The "Top Quality Skiing" label always highlights the self-imposed quality standard, which is consistently pursued through regular new attractions. From winter 21/22, Gurgl once more highlights its self-imposed standard of Top Quality Skiing with the new Rosskar Mountain Gondola. The state-of-the-art gondola lift replaces the previous chairlift, offering topnotch gondola comfort. With an astonishing overall transport capacity of 2400 people per hour, winter sports enthusiasts are carried from 1910 m in the valley up to the top station at 2668 m in almost no time.

Top Mountain Motorcycle Museum
Europe's highest motorcycle museum will open its doors again from 18 November 2021. The motorcycle museum was completely destroyed by a major fire in January 2021. The reconstruction not only expanded and renewed the lost collection, but also the entire concept of the museum. The new adventure world covering 4500 m² offers not only motorbikes from around the globe but also a noticeable motor experience. Various interactive elements encourage visitors to dive into the world of motorbikes. In a 4D cinema, including air flow, engine sound and cornering, guests can experience a ride over a Tirolean pass road. A media table offers detailed insights into how an engine works. Just to name a few of the many highlights including the exciting permanent and special exhibitions on several topics the museum has to offer.


Things for your vacation to do list
As one of Austria’s most exclusive ski resorts, Gurgl knows how to enchant guests with a wide range of offers. Here are a few of our top recommendations for your vacation to do list:

  • A stop at the Top Mountain Star at 3080 m. The architecturally unique building at the summit of Wurmkogl opens up magnificent views as far as Italy’s Dolomites.
  • Visit Hohe Mut Alm. The hut is a popular meeting point to restore energy for the next downhill adventure with a great view of Gurgl's glacier world. This scenery has one of the most popular wedding locations for "yes I do" celebrations.
  • A panoramic ride on the Pierre-Jouët gourmet gondola is a special kind of deluxe experience. In addition to mouth-watering culinary delights, superb mountain views will amaze you.
  • Away from skiing fun, the 3 kilometer long natural toboggan run in Hochgurgl attracts daredevils with weekly night tobogganing events.
  • At the weekly "First Line" skiing experience the ski resort belongs exclusively to you for a while. A ski guide accompanies a small group on wonderfully varied ski slopes, from steep passages to wide open runs and much more. Afterwards a splendid breakfast buffet at sunny Hohe Mut Alm will conclude the beautiful experience.
