It is almost that time of year again…ski season! The 17th of November marks the opening of Obergurgl’s 2016/17 ski season and as always the season will open with a celebration. Fun entertainment, a fabulous show program, music and snow are all guaranteed!

The season opening parties take place at various venues around the village and most are suitable for all ages. There are also a number of ski specials to kick off the season including a discount on ski pass prices and 20% off all ski rentals in all sport shops in Obergurgl and Hochgurl.  If you fancy a visit to the Motorcycle Museum (included in our top 10 things to do in Obergurgl) there is a 10% discount on entry for those who hold a ski pass.
