Obergurgl Ski Resort

Obergurgl is one of Austria's highest altitude resorts and perfect for early or late season skiing. The resort sits at the end of the Öztal Valley and is a small, friendly resort with a unique feel. Next to high-end hotels are working farms, and next to those are après-ski bars. As with many Austrian resorts, Obergurgl has great après-ski, both on the mountain (the Nederhütte is the most famous on mountain party place) and off, but it is more low key than the likes of St Anton or Ischgl.

The slopes are most suitable to intermediate or beginner skiers and snowboarders, although when the snow hits there are plenty of off piste options. Eating out, either on the mountain or in resort is a pleasure. Restaurant highlights include Hohe Mut Alm, Top Mountain Star and David's Skihütte. Many families head to Obergurgl due to the relaxed friendly nature of the resort and the efficient lifts. The resort is approximately a two hour transfer from Innsbruck airport.
