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.

Firn, Fun and Fire in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl

As we've mentioned before, Obergurgl is particularly well known for its freeriding, thanks to all the different off-piste areas that you can check out. However, if you're looking for something a bit easier going underfoot and you aren't looking for the dizzying heights of the off-piste, then we recommend that you try one of the guided Firn ski tours. These are lead by local guides and take a nice, light approach to skiing around the area, giving you plenty of breaks to make sure that you not only travel at a pace that is suitable, but that also allows you to take stock of the beautiful scenery around you. Cameras are welcome on this Firn ski tour and any questions you might have will be gladly answered by the knowledgeable local guides.

A local guided tour in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl

In fact, the area can look as though it was perfectly created for winter and snow-based vacations, thanks to the crisp and clear mountain air, sunshine and almost constant cover of snow. There are lots of ways to explore the resort and the slopes that are hidden amongst the hills. One way that people enjoy spending time in this stunning part of Austria is by going on guided walking tours, which are usually organised on a group basis. There are specific areas that are cleared solely for the purpose of hiking, so you know you'll be safe and won't have any collisions with skiers or snowboarders to the area.

There is a 12km stretch of cleared trails that are particularly good for hiking, and when you go walking you'll stumble across snow-covered forests, white fields and mountain brooks. This is going to be particularly interesting for those of you who are keen on nature photography, as there will be ample opportunity for you to flex your skills and capture some of the beauty of the area to take home with you.

Obergurgl and Hochgurgl gets rolling

As the ski season continues to get started in various Alpine resorts, the fun has definitely begun in Obergurgl and Hochgurgl.

Yesterday (November 12th) saw the ski lifts rolling at both villages for the first time this season, as those who had already made their ski and snowboard hire arrangements were able to hit the pristine slopes.

Doubtless many more will want to join them, but if so, it may be a good idea to take care in front of those webcams.

The first snowy resort of autumn

With autumn upon us, the nights are drawing in, the leaves are changing colour - and winter sports fans are thinking about their ski hire options.

Of all the places people might go in the next few months, Obergurgl - Hochgurgl might not be the first some think of. However, it is a place well worth thinking of if you don't want to rely on a glacier for skiing.

According to On The Snow, Obergurgl is one of the very first resorts of the season to open without having a glacier to rely on. This is due to a high base and very lofty slopes above. This, the site notes, means it can offer "top-to-bottom skiing from mid-November". It lies at the end of the Gurgler Tal, 1,930 metres up with a ski area ranging in height from 1,800 metres to 3,080 metres and a great view of the northern and southern Tyrol mountains from its highest spots.

With winter well on its way and the colder temperatures already setting in, some of you may be thinking about escaping from the rainy UK and spending a week or two in a more enjoyable wintry location.

It's fair to say there's little to do during winter in the UK, with many people preferring to stay indoors, wrapped up in a blanket by the fire. But if you visit a ski resort in France, Austria or Switzerland, it's likely that there won't be a second where you feel bored, because there's a whole host of action-packed, fun-filled activities to keep you entertained for days.
