Gurgl – Where winter is at home

Skiopening 2020/21

Grab your skis and head to Gurgl

November is cloudy and gray, the sun was not here for a long time, the mood becomes less vibrant with each passing day. You know that? We do not. As in Gurgl, one of Tirol's highest winter sports resorts offering 25 mountain lifts and 112 slope kilometers, the Ski Opening is scheduled for December*. The truly vast and wide open ski area, stretching up to 3080 meters above sea level and therefore very snow-sure, promises double the advantage for winter sports enthusiasts in the coming autumn and winter season. By far the safest skiing vacation that has ever existed. The short distances are just perfect for real winter sports fans. There are also countless hotels right on the slopes. Ski in & ski out at its finest. That's how it should be.

*The ski area is expected to open in December. An exact date will be announced soon.

Early and in a good mood

That's the motto in Gurgl where the slopes extend from 1800 to 3080 meters above sea level and open in December*. Obergurgl-Hochgurgl is not a glacier ski area, but thanks among the winter sports resorts with absolute snow reliability in the early season. It is also ahead in terms of comfort: modern lifts, no waiting times and upscale hotel and mountain gastronomy.



• By far the first to hit the slopes.

• By far the (snow)safest ski area.

• By far one of the first ski areas to open the winter season already on 03 December*.
