The Tirol boasts the most renowned mountains in the world, the finest ski facilities–not to mention the coziness of small-town ski slopes and their roaring fires. Pristine pillows, cozy duvets, and friendly service all serve as the backdrop for a fantastic skiing holiday. Obergurgl is frequently compared to St Anton, and Kitzbuehl as being one of the top Austrian resorts to visit. Being so much higher than Kitzbuehl gives it a significant advantage if you want a snow assured resort. Its sister resort Hochgurgl is also very pretty but lacks the Apres Ski of Obergurgl. Whilst the French resorts can offer more extensive skiing, they fail to capture the true charm and beauty of the Tirol.
