Obergurgl-Hochgurgl Skiing Area - Oetztal

Two skiing areas at the head of the Oetztal offer snow in abundance and great skiing conditions - the slopes start at your doorstep

The Gaisberg and the Hohe Mut Cable Cars take winter sports enthusiasts on Tyrol's most beautiful panoramic mountain, which has hardly no equal: From Mt. Hohe Mut and from the fully glazed panorama bar on the ridge of the Wurmkogl you can enjoy a breath-taking view. Among the 25 lift facilities there are also the new Rosskarbahn which starts in the village centre of Obergurgl, and the 8-seater Top Express Gondola, the connection between Obergurgl and Hochgurgl.

The 112 km of ski slopes start at 3,000 m a.s.l. - as one of the first skiing areas not located on a glacier, Obergurgl-Hochgurgl starts its skiing season already in mid-November. Beginners usually make their first steps on the skis at the Geiselsberg and Mahdstuhl slopes and at the practise lift, while ambitious skiers love the Festkogl and the Schermerspitze slopes. A real challenge, however, is the steep mogul slope from the Hohe Mut Pasture and the downhill run at the Wurmkogl.

Boarders can enjoy the quattro Snow Park at the Bruggenboden Lift and the new Fun Mountain Obergurgl with Fun Cross, Fun Slope and Family Park. Highlights such as First Line, Selfie-Cam and nighttime skiing provide for variation, furthermore there are a free ski bus and free Wlan. Vent is, by the way, one of the six skiing areas which are included in the Oetztal Super Ski Pass. A world premiere is the "Artificial Snow Cloud" - high quality artificial snow at the touch of a button.
