Lots of open cruising on easy reds and blues with some good blacks for the more adventurous. Hochgurgl is linked to Obergurgle by a good Gondola and you can ski down. Much more to do in Obergurgl - Hochgurgl just has hotel nightlife. If you want safe skiing, snow sure slopes and good quality hotels without the need for wild nightlife (it is possible in Obergurgl) this is a good choice.

Obergurgl is a lovely old fashioned traditional resort which is popular with families. Because the resort is high up conditions are mostly excellent, I think bad weather can be common and we had two days of quite heavy snow which made conditions challenging! I think the resort is best suited to people with a little experience or intermediates. I think beginners can find some of the blue slopes challenging, but experienced skiiers may not have enough to do. A visit to the nederhutte is a must for some apres ski.

I have been in Obergurgl 3 times for late snow and its been great but the area is a bit small. You can ski most of both areas in 3 days. The hotels are very good but food in the Edelweiss and Gurgl was just too much for us. It is a very pricey resort and the shops are expensive, the spar is a life saver as its really is the one shop for groceries. Lunchtime food and apres ski all priced sensibly. I would go again but only for the late snow. I have been to 16 resorts in Austria and it is my least favorite one so far.

ust back from week in Obergurgl - clear blue sky for entire week, good quality snow after last fall on Feb 7th. Obergurgl is a good ski but limited ski area - myself and my 14-year-old (intermediate skiers but he's now better than me) had skied virtually the entire area by the 3rd day. Ideal terrain for intermediates for us, but expert skiers might find the pistes a bit boring - the blacks (apart from one on the Hochgurgl side below the "drag lift of death") are really own reds and a lot of the reds are really blues and skiable by all but the most nervous. Queues almost non-existent even in hafl-term week - apart from 9.45-10.00 and 1.45-2.00 at the Gaisberg lifts in the centre of

We stayed in Hotel Crystal in Obergurgl. The hotel was lovely and the food was stunning. Staff were all very friendly, although the barman is a bit odd. The snow was good and facilities are great for newbies and intermediates, perhaps a bit limited for very serious skiers and boarders. Nightlife is non-existant. Bring all you need with you as the shops all seem to be owned by the same group and are pretty expensive. Lunchtime food and apres ski all priced sensibly. Everyone in my party would definitely go back
