Obergurgl & Hochgurgl - Top of Ötztal!



High snow-security from November to May, pistes above the timberline, an impressive panorama of the surrounding mountains and the latest snow machines … these are just a few of the many reasons to go for a holiday in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl! The two, rather calm villages Obergurgl (1,930 m) and Hochgurgl (2,150 m) are to be found at the end of the Ötztal on the high alpine road to the Timmelsjoch. In the midst of this beautiful mountain scenery quality beats quantity – especially in Hochgurgl: The exclusive hotel village is made up of just six hotels. Obergurgl is traffic-reduced, at night all driving is completely forbidden! Doorstep skiing is possible in both resorts. The landscape is marked by the surrounding glacier scenery and the impressive mountain views. Obergurgl is not just the highest situated church village in Austria, the ski area is deemed one of the best for snow, due to its exposed location. The atmosphere here is very quaint and the villages are renowned for their hut tradition with evenings spent in the huts and après ski.

Ski
As of the 2018/2019 winter season, when booking a lift pass valid for 3 or more days, you will automatically receive the "Ötztaler Superskipass" lift pass, which grants you unlimited access to the ski areas of Sölden, Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, Hochoetz-Kühtai, Niederthai, Gries and Vent. The selection available therefore increases to 356 km of piste and 90 lifts (see ski region)!

The 2 days lift pass Obergurgl-Hochgurgl is valid for the same-named ski area at the end of the Ötztal at an altitude of 1,793 - 3,082 m. Thanks to the high altitude and the modern snow-making devices it's not surprising that this area has the reputation of having the most snow-sure skiing area in the Alps! With the lift pass you have access to 110 kilometres of piste and 25 lifts. Up to 99% of the pistes are accessible to the snow-making devices, therefore the lifts are open from November to May! The "Top-Express-Gurgl" gondola connects the two skiing areas – the ride of 3.6 km takes just 9 minutes. During this time you can just relax and enjoy the magnificent glacier scenery!

Not to be missed: the "Top Mountain Crosspoint", of which opened back during the 2015/2016 winter season. The modern construct serves three functions: It is the valley station of the Kirchenkarbahn Sektion I lift with a table service restaurant, a toll station for the Timmelsjocher Hochstraße (high alpine road) and, with its "Mountain Motorcycle Museum", it is the highest-lying motorcycle museum in Europe. The modern, multifunctional complex is architecturally designed to resemble a snow drift.

Starting from the 2018/2019 winter season, there will be a new highlight: The Kirchenkarbahn Section II lift which connects skiers to a whole new area. The ski area has an additional approx. 2 km of piste that they can call all their own. When heading out from the present mountain station of the Section I, you'll conquer an additional 210 m altitude. The new mountain station of the Kirchenkarbahn Sektion II is therefore located at an altitude of 2,839 m.

The broad slopes of Hochgurgl are ideal for beginners. Obergurgl is more demanding but also offers a few blue runs. Advanced skiers get their kicks at the "Hohen Mut" (high courage) at Obergurgl – the most demanding slope of the Ötztal with its mogul piste and extremely steep run!

Boarders can find a snow park at the Bruggenboden lift with that gives you adrenaline on 2 different lines and almost 20 obstacles. Numerous great free ride areas at e.g. Wurmkogel and Festkogel, as well as on the Hohe Mut also ensure all kinds of fun and action.

It might not be as busy here as in Sölden (just 20 km away), but that doesn't mean you can't have plenty of fun here. The two villages are well-known for the "ski hut culture": Numerous huts welcome you to relax and enjoy this very traditional après ski. You certainly shouldn't miss out on visiting the "Nederhütte" – not only do they offer regional specialities, there is also a varied programme of entertainment including live music, cosy hut evenings and parties on a daily basis. Furthermore, there are a handful of bars and pubs at the Hochgurglalm, such as the sports bar ice-berg by Arnold.

If you're looking for fun off the pistes you might enjoy winter hiking, snowshoeing, curling or ice skating. Several times a week you can take part in a night skiing trip. The "Freizeit Arena" (leisure centre) in Sölden is also worth a trip, here you'll find a leisure paradise: pool complex, sauna area, relaxation baths, indoor sports and a skittles alley! A further highlight is to be found in Hochgurgl: the 700 m² indoor golf complex!

A total of 12 km of cross-country skiing runs are waiting for all Nordic sports fans in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. Beginners will enjoy the 3 km practice run near Obergurgl. Furthermore there is a 7 km trail around the district of Pill, which is quite enjoyable for all degrees of difficulty. In Hochgurgl you'll find 2 km of high track with a magnificent panoramic view.

An even larger selection can be found in the surrounding resorts Längenfeld (50 km track), Sölden (15 km), Vent (2 km) and Zwieselstein (7 km).

The Längenfeld, Gries and Niederthal cross-country trail network is labelled with a quality seal.
