Obergurgl-Hochgurgl skiing area - Oetztal

The skiing areas Obergurgl and Hochgurgl, located at the head of the Oetztal valley, offer snow in abundance and great skiing conditions.

112 km of well groomed ski slopes are waiting to be explored in the skiing areas Obergurgl (56 km) and Hochgurgl (56 km). 25 lift facilities take you up at more than 3,000 m a.s.l. A lasting experience is also a ride with the Gaisberg and Hohe Mut lift facilities, which take you on one of the most beautiful panoramic mountains of Tyrol, which has hardly no equal - the view from the TOP Mountain Star in Hochgurgl, located at 3,080 m a.s.l., is simply breath-taking! The fully glazed architectural masterpiece towers on a narrow ridge of the Wurmkogl peak.

Beginners usually make their first steps on snow at the Geiselsberg and Mahdstuhl lifts, while ambitious skiers love skiing on the Festkogl (Obergurgl) and the Schermerspitze slope (Hochgurgl). A real challenge, however, is the steep slope from Mt. Hohe Mut as well as moguls skiing at the Top-Wurmkogel II. Snowboarders can enjoy the Snow Park at the Bruggenboden lift as well as the newly established Snow Park with Fun Cross near the Steinmannbahn cable car.

However, in case natural snow might fail to appear, there are modern snow cannons providing white slopes as well as a world premiere: the "Artificial Snow Cloud" (Künstliche Schneewolke) producing high quality artificial snow at the touch of a button. The Snow Card Tyrol (more than 90 skiing areas in Tyrol), the Freizeitticket Tyrol (32 skiing areas and other leisure time facilities in Tyrol), the Tyrol Regio Card (reductions for leisure time facilities in Tyrol) and the Oetztal Super Ski Pass (361 km of slopes, 60 lift facilities and 6 skiing areas) are valid in this skiing area.
