Bright, late autumn weather and pleasantly mild temperatures will continue on far into next week! Bright sunshine and mostly clear skies are forecast for the next week which means perfect weather conditions for outdoor adventure seekers. Towards next weekend the colder temperatures are back on the horizon, so this is the time to take advantage of the spring-like conditions!
Currently there is no wind and the last snowfall on 28 November brought a good base to the mountain; the current conditions and snow are great for skiing. However, there are many other activities to take advantage of in this great weather; here are our top picks:
Cross Country Skiing
This is the best fitness routine you could ask for! Take advantage of the scenic winter trails and try Nordic skiing while you are stay at the Chalet at 11˚ East in Obergurgl. Click here to see the trails:
Enjoy the winter tradition of ice skating to get into the holiday spirit! You can find the nearest rink opposite of the old St. Bernhard’s mountaineers chapel nestled into the Obergurgl mountain slope.
Winter Hiking and Snowshoeing
This is another great avidity to try when the weather isn’t so cold! Enjoy the beautiful winter scenery while you trek through the snow. Guided hikes with advance booking are recommended.
For advance booking:
