Obergurgl – the holiday of a lifetime!
Like to ski or snowboard? If your answer is yes, get yourself over to Obergurgl-Hochgurgl says Ross MacKay our Chalet Manager. These mountains are snow-sure from November to May and if its not snowing, the sun is shining. The locals call it “the diamond of the alps” and it’s obvious why.
This resort it tucked away at the top of the Otz valley and it’s one of Austria’s highest and most sought after resorts at 1,930 meters and a ski range up to 3080! They’re a total of 24 lifts which are all easily accessible from our chalet and also a free bus service around the resort, so our 110km of pistes are begging to be skied. Because we have so much space and it’s such a well kept secret there’s barely ever a wait to get on the lifts. The 2 ski area’s have 18 piste-bashers that only operate outside of lift times so expect perfectly groomed slopes from the day you arrive to the day you leave with no interruptions.
After a hard day’s skiing and snowboarding you can relax in style in our chalet. At Ski Total we pride ourselves on our excellent cuisine as well as our quality service and friendly staff so I guarantee you’ll have no problems unwinding. With an impressive 8 mountain -side restaurants you’ll never run out of places to eat with each one boasting fantastic views across the valley. There’s also the famous Nederhutte, Obergurgl’s best apres ski bar with live music from 4.00pm so if you fancy dancing on tables in ski boots and a really great time, come on down!
If skiing or snowboarding isn’t your cup of tea or even if you fancy doing something a bit different, Obergurgl and Hochgurgl have plenty to offer. On a Tuesday we have our Ski show, where the ski instructors wow audiences with flips, tricks and even a jump through a ring of fire and to finish this off there’s an amazing firework display. Other “off piste” activities include curling, tobogganing, ice skating, indoor golf and hiking. With all this to offer and much, much more, you’ll never be at a loose end.
There are a huge variety of runs ranging from wide open blues to challenging blacks and even a brand new snow park for those wanting to push the limits. There’s something for everyone and you’ll never get bored. The snow covered mountain peaks and the friendly atmosphere will make you come back year after year.
I can honestly say, if you come to Obergurgl you’ll have the holiday of a lifetime and you’ll have so many great memories to take home.
