SKI AREA FACTS

TOP QUALITY SKIING

...is the synonym for the Obergurgl and Hochgurgl Lift Companies, the ultimate slogan of a widely known Top Ski Resort in the Alps.

Top Mountain Star

The "Diamond of the Alps" lives up to its name not only when it comes to accommodation, service and enjoyment, but also in terms of skiing, snowboarding, powder riding, carving, free-riding and free-style skiing. Obergurgl-Hochgurgl offers fun and excitement for beginners, intermediate and advanced skiers on no less than 110 perfectly groomed slope kilometers with absolute snow guarantee. More space on the ski run means that skiing is safer and that winter sport fans can freely experience the essence of skiing and enjoy the marvelous winter landscape in Tirol.

 

LONG SEASON
Thanks to huge mountain lift capacities (up to 40,000 persons per hour) and several base terminals in the village center, lift lines are literally unknown. 24 ski lifts are spread over the wonderful ski area which offers superb snow conditions at high altitudes (1,800 – 3,080 meters above sea level) from mid-November through early May. Every year Obergurgl-Hochgurgl is the first non-glacier ski area in Tirol to open its slopes!

Hohe Mut Alm

VARIED OFF-PISTE SKIING
Myriad off-piste slopes in the unmarked ski area attract passionate free-riders and powder snow fans from near and far to the area's countless pristine powder stashes. But never forget: safety comes first! For safety reasons Ötztal Tourismus strongly recommends to check the current snow, avalanche and weather reports on the spot. Safety equipment and avalanche transceivers are an absolute must for off-piste skiers. For demanding tours you should enlist a local ski guide or certified mountain guide.

 

TOP DINING & WINING
From a gastronomical point of view the Diamond of the Alps shines in full splendor: umbrella bars, rustic mountain huts, snack stations, self-service restaurants, top quality dining parlors, mountain restaurants and après-ski-bars are spread all over the area. Both mountainscape and culinary highlight can be found at the unrivaled Top Mountain Star on Wurmkogel peak: an architectural gem with panorama bar overlooking the picture-book mountain ridges and peaks of the surrounding Ötztal Alps, reaching up to the Dolomites in the south. Gourmet fans get together at scenic Hohe Mut Alm where fine dining & wining is guaranteed at the highest level, embedded in 21 peaks beyond three thousand meters.

As Obergurgl-Hochgurgl is a partner of all Tirolean season passes (Freizeitticket, Regio Card, Tirol Snow Card) holders of these tickets can use all mountain lifts without any restrictions – Freizeitticket and Regio Card are valid also in summer (Hohe Mut and Top Mountain Star).
