It’s been a busy ski season at The Chalet, at 11º East Obergurgl. We started the season with a colossal amount of snow, allowing all 25 lifts to open right on day one in mid-November! 112 kilometres of perfectly groomed slopes greeted our guests who started to arrive from mid-December. Our staff had by that time, become fully acquainted with all the slopes and all the huttes as well!
Obergurgl and Hochgurgl have a large range of mountain huttes serving tasty snacks food and of course the eponymous Neederhutte where live music entertains guests from 4 pm. It’s the best après ski bar anywhere in the alps, and one key reason apart from the snow assured excellent skiing , ( 1930 metres base level rising to 300 metres) that prompts guests to continually return.
Staff at The Chalet were treated to an adventure learning to drive in a E 200,000 piston bully in December. This is a fascinating piece of kit, and despite the amount of automation that it boasts, it needs a highly coordinated approach and huge amounts of concentration to operate. Have a look at their web site in case you want to buy one! https://www.pistenbully.com/usa/en/vehicles/all-vehicles.html
We still have availability at The Chalet, for half term and Easter, and with daily flights from London with both British Airways and Easyjet, Obergurgl is an easy to get to ski Resort. Once you arrive at Innsbruck, Obergurgl is just 75 minutes by taxi.
The Chalet, at 11º East sleeps 10 in 5 luxurious en suite bedrooms and provides superb food and wine. We are slap bang on the slopes and only two minutes’ walk from the village centre and main lifts.
Now that’s what I mean by too much snow! We sometimes have to clear the flat roof by March , but this Year we had to do it in January!
