Obergurgl - from £689pp
The Obergurgl and Hochgurgl skiing area has been nicknamed the 'Diamond of the Alps' thanks to its stunning pistes and spectacular scenery. Whatever ski holiday you’re planning, you’ll find all the best offers at skiing-deals.co.uk.
Great for skiers of all abilities
If you’re just starting out, you’ll find two well-maintained beginners’ areas near the Rosskar and Festkogel ski lifts. However, if you’re an experienced skier and you’d prefer some more-challenging terrain, you can find five slopes for intermediate skiers and three for advanced/expert skiers.
The entire Obergurgl ski area has 35 blue runs, 55 red runs and 20 black runs, so there are plenty of pistes for different levels of experience. These are all easily accessible via the 24 excellent mountain lifts here (open from 9am to 4pm), which can accommodate up to 40,000 people an hour and will take to altitudes as high as 3,080 metres. If you’re staying in a hotel that’s a bit further away from the ski zone, you can take the ski buses free of charge with your lift pass.
Fancy some night skiing?
If you love the idea of gliding down a floodlit ski run in the dark, you can also take part in night skiing once a week in Obergurgl or neighbouring Hoghgurgl.
Obergurgl has extensive off-piste skiing areas for powder-snow lovers and free-riders. Before you set off on these unmarked slopes, please check the weather forecast and snow conditions, and make sure you have the right safety equipment.
You’ll find a wide choice of Obergurgl hotels, many of which offer easy access to ski lifts and bus stops.
