This is some of the most skiing that we’ve ever done. So many choices and so much beauty/fun. The tobogganing was awesome!

If it’s nice leisurely skiing you’re looking for, this is NOT the place for you. Beautiful but I would be careful if you are a blue run person. It looks as if there are a lot of blue runs but in my experience some of...More

Small but well presented resort. Very good for late season skiing. If you want more space and easy cruising runs then take the top express to Hochgurgl.

Hochgurgl has some beautiful runs but I would recommend staying in Obergurgl. It’s easy to ski between the two areas and both offer something for everyone. Facilities are excellent in both.
