ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
During this trip, you’ll spend six days skiing with other Ski Club members of a similar ski profile. This trip is aimed at Intermediate (Red), Advanced Intermediate (Silver) and Advanced (Purple) on piste skiers, but if you are unsure of your ski level, please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week, you’ll receive an updated grading from your Ski Club Rep.
The luxurious 4* Edelweiss and Gurgl is the original village hotel that overlooks the main square on one side and the slopes on the other. The village was built around the hotel and the small 18th century church beside it, so the location is about as central as it gets. You will be staying in your own single occupancy room and will be catered for on a half board basis.
This holiday includes both your flights and transfer. The flights are with British Airways and depart from London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 to Innsbruck. Ski Carriage is payable at the airport only and cannot be pre-booked. Your Ski Club Rep will coordinate the coach transfer from Innsbruck Airport, so please look out for them in the main arrivals hall, they’ll be wearing their blue Ski Club jacket. Transfers to and from resort will take approximately an hour and a half.
If these travel arrangements are not convenient, you may be eligible to organise your own travel and receive a nominal discount from the holiday cost. Furthermore, if you can find alternative flights that coincide with our flight times then you can meet the group at the airport and take our transfer to resort. Please contact the Freshtracks office on 020 8410 2022 in order to discuss this further.
With high, snowsure slopes above and a traditional, chalet-style village below, the resort of Obergurgl has the perfect balance. A far cry from busier resorts shouting for your attention, Obergurgl has a laid-back culture and family feel, with many hotels and restaurants being locally run. The après scene caters perfectly to the visitors with local cafes and chalets offering cosy teatime spreads. For more information on Obergurgl, please visit our Obergurgl Resort Guide.
If you require equipment hire, there is a Skiset shop (Scheiber Sport) ideally located inside the hotel! You can pre-book via Skiset through the Ski Club website. Once you are logged into our website, please go to the discount section and search for “Skiset”. Please choose the Rosskarbahn shop.
