When the mountains call
Find your challenge
Higher, faster, further - this is how you can summarize the ambitions of many sports fans. The Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area offers 112 perfectly groomed slope kilometers and the unique opportunity to focus entirely on a memorable skiing experience: daily training units help to improve your skiing technique while taking full advantage of all the offers in this varied ski region.
Ötztal promises absolute snow reliability from mid-November to mid-May. The clearly arranged holiday villages of Obergurgl and Hochgurgl - and also most hotels - are located directly on the ski slope. Comfortable ski-in & ski-out is just normal here, coupled with a perfect infrastructure in the villages: everything is available on-site - including ski & sports shop, ski rental station or supermarket.
With one goal in mind
You have been on skis for years and are satisfied with your skills? Maybe it's time for a new challenge. In the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski region you can easily enlist a professional ski guide who takes you on new trails and routes. Either on foot during a ski mountaineering tour or while freeriding off the groomed slopes in open Alpine terrain.
In addition to great adventures amid unspoilt nature, a complementary training program can be useful. Therefore many hotels have set up their in-house fitness clubs. Improve your physical stamina on cardio machines or focus on target-specific muscle groups during strength training units. Clearly define the intensity of your training, because afterwards you return to the slopes.
Also sportspeople have the right to enjoyment
Who demands a great deal of body strength, must also provide for phases of regeneration. Challenging sport units should be followed by relaxation in the sauna. Many hotels in the Ötztal region have an in-house offer for athletes: a sports massage treats specifically stressed areas of the body – promising a maximum recovery effect.
Not only the training but also a healthy nutrition is of particular importance for sports fans. That is why our restaurants provide for a well balanced and healthy offer – there is something for every taste, ranging from hearty dishes to gourmet delights. If you want to treat yourself to a glass of fine wine or beer, you will for sure find it in one of the countless pubs and bars.
