Top Hotel Hochgurgl
Hotel Angerer Alm is a 49 room, luxury 4 star hotel. Not only will you stay in great comfort and eat excellent food, you’ll be spoilt by the wonderfully stylish décor, which fits nicely with a traditional alpine style. Enjoy a hot & cold buffet breakfast each morning, then after a hard day on the slopes sit down for a 4 course evening meal with choice of 3 main dishes all served to your table by a waiter. But remember, you must dress smart casual for your evening meal. Half board holidays are on offer at this hotel. All rooms have cable TV, a safe, telephone, radio, free wifi, bathrobes, slippers and a hairdryer.
If you prefer to ski to and from the front door then the Hotel Rimi could be the one for you. Don’t waste time walking to the lifts, choose this four star deluxe hotel with amazing leisure facilities. There is an adults only spa on the roof, with views of the mountains and valley that are to die for, made even more special when viewed from a rooftop infinity whirlpool! Recently refurbished the panorama bar is perfect for a drink watching the sunset. Perfect for couples on a ski holiday. Plus families can take advantage of the free child care on offer and pretend they are a young couple again (just for one drink mind!)
Hochgurgl is a high Alpine resort at 2,150m. It is situated next door to Obergurgl, it’s more well known neighbour. Due to the altitude the snow conditions are always great, with an extra long season for a European resort starting in November and running all the way through until May. Luckily there is an eight-person gondola that whisks you between the Hochgurgl and Obergurgl ski areas. If that joint ski area is not enough for you the good news is your lift pass also covers you for the Solden ski area, so another 145km to play with, plus there is a glacier is Solden as well!
Hochgurgl is brilliant for beginners, the ski school is excellent and, of course, is English speaking. Intermediates are spoilt for choice amongst 55 red runs and for the more adventurous of us there are 20 black runs to get your teeth into, and that’s without including the awesome ski area at Solden. And for snowboarders there is a pretty good snowpark to put your skills to the test.
And it’s not just skiing on offer at Hochgurgl, there are a host of other sports and activities you can try your hand at whilst on your holiday. Fancy a walk in really deep snow? Well why not try snow shoeing! There is also Ice skating and tobogganing to throw in a few more winter sports. Although if you’ve had enough of the snow for one day and fancy the warmth and shelter of an indoor activity you can take your pick from indoor golf or bowling. And if schnapps or a stein of larger is more your thing there are plenty of bars to check out, and they are a little less lively than neighbouring Obergurgl, so perfect if you like peace and quiet.
