At 1930m, at the end of the Ötz valley and close to the Italian border, the Obergurgl ski resort is the definition of a family resort. At the foot of the 110km of slopes, the village is calm in the evenings. However that doesn’t stop a good number of sporting activities such as: telemarking, ski touring, curling, winter walks, ice skating, indoor swimming, mountaineering, bowling, indoor golf and horse riding… Snow is guaranteed throughout the whole skiing season thanks to the resort’s high altitude. Plus, there is never any waiting at the ski lifts thanks to its large and numerous slopes. For some cultural après-ski, there is a point from the top of the Solden where you can see where the 5000 year old Similaun Ice Man was found in 1991.
