"The Chalet Christophorus is unique for more than one reason. Not only is it the only catered chalet for adult guests in the popular Austrian ski area of Obergurgl, it is also one of very few Austrian chalets to be ski in ski out. Surrounded by ski slopes, guests at the Christophorus start their day with a gentle beginner run down to the chairlift. Even better for first timers, the ski school meeting point is just 50 metres from the chalet, making the Christophorus a smart choice for beginners. "
Chalet Christophorus - Obergurgl, Austria
Chalet Christophorus proved hugely popular with its guests, not least for its rarity value – at the time of going to press, this is still the one and only catered chalet for adult guests in the whole of this superb resort!
Set in a quiet cul-de-sac off the main street, within easy walking distance of the village centre, and right on the slopes at the foot of the imaginatively named No 6 Blue run, the Christophorus is one of the best located chalets in the Alps! For added convenience, the beginners ski area is just behind the chalet and the ski-school meeting-point, a mere 50m away.
Just 30m from the ski-room door, you can put your skis on and ski down to the main Festkogl gondola, and then ski back right to the chalet at the end of the day. Or, if you wanted to start from the village centre, the regular free ski-bus stops just 50m from the chalet.
The bedrooms are all well appointed, comfortable and attractively styled, most with their own private en suite bath and separate wc, and several with balcony or terrace.
The dining-room on the first floor is traditionally styled with light wooden fixtures, and there is a traditional Tyrolean tiled stove to add ambience and warmth to your chalet dining experience. A small separate lounge offers a quiet spot to read or chat over the day’s skiing, and the sauna and relaxation area are an added bonus for unwinding after a busy ski day. Approximate Transfer time to resort: 1 hour 45 minutes
