High-class skiing at the Diamond of the Alps

Do you like skiing or snowboarding? Countless ski areas in Austria have beautiful slopes ready for all winter sports enthusiasts. But real enjoyment on the slopes only becomes top-class in Gurgl, the Diamond of the Alps. From beginners to experts and from freeriders to piste aficionados, all winter sports enthusiasts will get their money's worth in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. Thanks to the high altitude of the ski area between 1800 and 3080 meters as well as the most modern snowmaking systems, Gurgl is one of the most snow-sure ski destinations in the Alps and one of the first ski areas in Austria to open the ski slopes every year in November. This is how top-quality skiing works!

Varied choice of slopes, fabulous panorama

Because here in the Austrian Alps, some 112 kilometers of blue, red and black slopes are waiting to be discovered by ambitious winter fans. Embedded in the breathtaking surroundings of majestic three thousand meter high peaks, you will be amazed by an unforgettable panorama. For example, at the Top Mountain Star panorama bar towering on a narrow rock ridge at over 3000 meters. Stopping here, sipping a cup of tasty coffee or hot chocolate and indulging in the breathtaking view of the snow-covered mountains of upper Ötztal is one of those things that you should definitely have done on a ski holiday in Gurgl.

The crisp and clean mountain air relieves your head from everyday worries. Treat yourself to exclusive winter holidays in the multifaceted ski area of Gurgl, because at the rear end of Ötztal - at Wurmkogl and Hohe Mut - crunchy corn snow, powder or deep snow offer pure skiing pleasure.
