Gargellen is a wonderful resort. It is not a large village. The on-piste skiing is fairly limited. I think Gargellen's forte is off-piste, which there is absolute tons of. The snow record of Gargellen is excellent. We stayed at the Bradabella Hotel which is warm, welcoming and offers first class service.

Decided to try Gargellen for Easter and arranged cheap flight to Fredrickshafen. Transfer to Gargellen was a short and simple drive of 1hr 15 mins. Snow was great 40cm of new snow when we arrived on the 12th April. Unfortunately the skiing was poor for piste skiers. Only 1 red run that got very tight down towards the village, about 3 blues up in the main area and 2 main blue runs that lead to the village. These are basically covered roads and as they got cut up and melted during the day they became extremely difficult and narrow. Saw more than one family wish that they hadn't started the journey down and thought the same thing myself on the last day. I think Gargellen's forte is off-piste, w

I went to Gargellen in 2006 and decided to go back in 2007. I was originally disappointed last year with the lack of on-piste skiing, but now, i've found the magic of the place. It is all about Gargellen's off -piste and ski touring areas. I spent the week with a group and a guide and we skied some spectacular off piste . Needless to say i'm going back this Easter for a third trip! My point about the ski school - last year i was supposed to be in an advanced mixed English German group. Well i was the English guy the rest of the people were German. This i don't have any problems with at all but the problems started when i wanted the instructor/guide to speak English to me - he simply couldn't

We have skied Gargellen three winters and hiked two summers. It is a great place with lots of fine intermediate skiing up the main lift from the town. It is a small village at the end of the road. Not much night life, so be prepared to entertain yourselves in the evening. Relaxed area, not hectic. The mountain huttas have the classic Austrian atmosphere. For more variety you can go down the road to the larger Silveretta Nova and Schruns areas.

Small and quiet especially in the evening. Fantastic for a short break, great snow when i went in March, quiet even at the weekend. Great place for families - lovely atmosphere. Skiing excellent for beginner and intermediates. Good snow as very high and renowned for good snow. 7 or 8 off piste ski routes which were a lot of fun! Only heard 2 other English voices all weekend. You can even ski mountaineer to Switzerland if you wish!
