When the mountains call

Find your challenge

Higher, faster, further - this is how you can summarize the ambitions of many sports fans. The Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area offers 112 perfectly groomed slope kilometers and the unique opportunity to focus entirely on a memorable skiing experience: daily training units help to improve your skiing technique while taking full advantage of all the offers in this varied ski region.

Ötztal promises absolute snow reliability from mid-November to mid-May. The clearly arranged holiday villages of Obergurgl and Hochgurgl - and also most hotels - are located directly on the ski slope. Comfortable ski-in & ski-out is just normal here, coupled with a perfect infrastructure in the villages: everything is available on-site - including ski & sports shop, ski rental station or supermarket.


With one goal in mind

You have been on skis for years and are satisfied with your skills? Maybe it's time for a new challenge. In the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski region you can easily enlist a professional ski guide who takes you on new trails and routes. Either on foot during a ski mountaineering tour or while freeriding off the groomed slopes in open Alpine terrain.

In addition to great adventures amid unspoilt nature, a complementary training program can be useful. Therefore many hotels have set up their in-house fitness clubs. Improve your physical stamina on cardio machines or focus on target-specific muscle groups during strength training units. Clearly define the intensity of your training, because afterwards you return to the slopes.
