Easter skiing

Sunshine skiing in spring

The warm spring sun on your face, the finest corn snow – called firn - under the skis: of course, the Easter bunny likes that too. On 112 slope kilometers and in 25 mountain lifts, egg hunting becomes a true challenge, because Gurgl is especially known for its spacious and wide open ski runs. Here we explain why not only the Easter Bunny likes to come to Gurgl for ultimate skiing.

Easter holidays in the mountains

The date of Easter is different every year. It varies from late March to late April. As one of the snow-surest ski areas in the Alps, Gurgl’s skiing season lasts until the end of April. Easter and skiing simply belong together at the Diamond of the Alps. Because skiing under the warming spring sun is a very special pleasure.

While the flowers have long been sprouting down on the valley floor, you will still find excellent ski slope conditions in Gurgl. Thanks to the high alpine altitude between 1800 meters and 3030 meters, not only the mountain peaks are white in spring, but also the valley is sometimes still snow-covered. This makes the Easter egg hunt more difficult, but all winter sports enthusiasts can look forward to first-class skiing.

On the sunny side of life

Easter holidays in the snow can be enjoyed particularly well on the countless sun-kissed terraces throughout the ski area. When the days are getting longer and the sun rises earlier, there is sunshine almost in the entire ski area all day long. If you don't want to miss a single ray of sunshine, then the terraces of Hohe Mut, Crosspoint, Nederhütte, Kirchenkarhütte etc. make an ideal spot. From your place in the sun you will not only enjoy the breathtaking views, but also alpine delicacies served in the mountain huts and inns. An old skier's saying goes: even the best scrambled pancake – “Kaiserschmarrn” - tastes at least twice as good on a sun terrace.
