Obergurgl-Hochgurgl Skiing Area - Oetztal

Two skiing areas at the head of the Oetztal valley offer snow in abundance and great skiing conditions.

Every winter, the Gaisberg and the Hohe Mut Cable Cars take winter sports enthusiasts 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.

Up there, the 112 km of ski slopes of the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl Skiing Area start. Beginners usually make their first steps on the skis at the Geiselsberg and Mahdstuhl Lifts and at the practise lift, while ambitious skiers love the Festkogl and the Schermerspitze slopes. A real challenge, however, is the steep downhill run from Mt. Hohe Mut as well as the mogul slope 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 Steinmann Cable Car. By the way: A world premiere is the "Artificial Snow Cloud" producing high quality artificial snow at the touch of a button.
