Known by many as the “Diamond of the Alps”, Obergurgl is a stunning traditional Austrian mountain resort. As a very snow sure resort with a huge variety of runs as well as an abundance of things to do other than ski, Obergurgl will satisfy the non-skiers as well as every standard of skier, making it the perfect destination for a luxury catered ski holiday .
The snow this year is simply amazing, deep powder to a level we have not had in many years. See the pictures at the bottom of this blog- Need we say more?
The Chalet at 11º east is Obergurgl’s first and only boutique chalet, nestled right on the nursery piste with stunning views. The unrivalled service, alongside the luxurious interior that captures the flavour of a traditional Austrian chalet, will ensure that your time off the mountain will be every bit as enjoyable as that spent skiing! Obergurgl has something for everyone; the beginner slopes are right outside The Chalet at 11 º East’s window and the main lift is just a minutes’ walk away. Because it is more of a family resort, the slopes are a pleasure to be on. They are beautifully groomed, wide and interesting with great views, plenty of blues, reds and some blacks. Several allow for a lovely long ski from the very top to the valley without stopping.
The layout of the resort, being twinned with Hochgurgl, means you never get bored and can ski different areas in the morning and afternoon. The resort is also known for its challenging off piste but it’s best to book in with a local ski guide. The lift pass now covers Obergurgl, Hochgurgl and nearby Solden, which offers a completely different experience and is well worth the trip if you are looking for more of an adventure during your week in Obergurgl. The 4 fun parks should also keep most trendy skiers and boarders happy boarders happy!
