Obergurgl is the highest town in Austria and sits in the spectacular Ötz Valley. The altitude of Obergurgl results in fantastic snow and long winter ski seasons. And its position in the Ötz Valley means the scenery is magnificent - there are more than 250 peaks of over 3,000m in the Ötztal Alps, with the biggest glaciated area in the eastern Alps. And 50 of these peaks surround Obergurgl!Skiing on these giant peaks starts straight from the village with lifts leaving from the centre of town, and skiing straight back to your door possible at the end of the day. The slopes of Ubergurgl span an immense 110km and are varied in level. There are some excellent ski schools in the area, plenty of choice for intermediates with 50% of the runs graded red, and expert skiers and boarders will be captivated by the off-piste possibilities on the high peaks of the Ötztal Alps. There's also glacial skiing available at the neighbouring resort of Sölden.All the fun isn't just on the mountains though, in town you'll find a wealth of things to do. For some friendly competition why not have a tournament in the bowling alley, a game on one of the many billards tables, or a curling match on the village's ice rink? Or if you just want an adrenalin fix then there's always night skiing and the toboggan run.When you're finished for the day why not relax in one of the many spas or swimming pools in the resort? These are dotted throughout the charming town centre, which is also home to the bars and restaurants where you can enjoy your après ski hours.If this classic Tirolean ski resort sounds like your kind of holiday destination then you'll be happy to hear that getting there couldn't be easier. Located just one hour from Innsbruck airport, you can simply jump in a taxi and be on the slopes by the afternoon!
