Obergurgl is a skiing jewel - 12/03/2019
Overall

Having met several people who raved about Obergurgl, it seemed that it was faultless and unbelievable. However, it didn't take long to share their opinion. Snow falls in November and remains until May, as it is one of the highest resorts in Austria there is guaranteed snow throughout. It is has the occasional restrictions due to high winds. There is 112kM of piste which is very well managed. An assortment of runs gives plenty of choice. The town is not littered with the usual shops, only ski equipment and a Spar supplied the necessary. If you want lots of shops, Solden is for you. There are other activities which can be obtained through the tourist information we did snow shoe walk and the "First Line with Breakfast" although not cheap was worth it to have the slopes to oneself from 07:30 to 09:00 followed by a wonderful breakfast at Hohe Mut with tremendous views over the area. We stayed at the Hotel Alpenland which is only a stone's throw from the snow line so were able to ski almost to the door. The rooms were perfect for our requirements. The food was excellent as were all the staff. There is a comprehensive spar in the basement, which we should have start using from day one. Only minor thing was despite turning off the room radiator it was still very warm at night. A lighter duvet would be ideal. Our après-ski was usually at the terrace cafe at Hotel Wiesental late afternoon having a few beers looking up the valley in glorious sunshine. Only other tip is that week 10 is German school half term, which puts the price up for that week. The area operates a no queue policy at the lifts and it works even during school holidays. Obergurgl is one resort I will return to, without hesitation.

Great trip - 01/04/2019
Overall

Booked with Igluski.com and had a great holiday from start to finish. Everything run smoothly, this is our 12th visit to this resort. We had a good hotel, great skiing and lots of fun in the Nederhutte for the Apre Ski. The weather was fantastic, it was very sunny but still plenty of packed snow. We will be back again next year.

Apres Ski: 4/5
