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.
