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.

110 km of well groomed ski slopes are waiting to be explored in the skiing areas Obergurgl (approx. 56 km) and Hochgurgl (approx. 54 km). 24 lift facilities take you up on 3,000 m a.s.l. What is impressive is the view on the surrounding world of mountains, which can be enjoyed while skiing. 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 is simply breath-taking!

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 the 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 funcross near the Steinmannbahn funuicular.

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. All skipasses for 3+ days are valid also in the Sölden skiing area, furthermore the “Oetztal Superskipass” is valid in the valley.
