In mid-November, high up in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl the winter season will dawn already. When the temperatures drop and the clouds bring precipitation, then the weather in Obergurgl is cold enough for the white gold. Modern snow-making facilities will do the rest to make the slopes ready for the first skiers of the winter. As one of the first ski regions of Tyrol and the whole of Austria, Obergurgl-Hochgurgl starts the new season, and it does so with great ski opening highlights.
Modern snow machines ensure white slopes
After all, at an altitude of over 2,000 metres it will be winter already when in other parts of the country the hills are still green. High tech snow-making facilities conjure up fresh snow which will soon cover all of the slopes in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. For no less than 99 % of the pistes can be provided with artificial snow. It only takes storage water, air and cold to make the snow flakes. Draw your turns into the soft snow and experience the ski opening in Obergurgl from 21 to 29 November 2018.
Ski fun until the spring months
When there is a thick snow cover in the Ötztal Alps, then everything is taken care of for long-lasting ski fun. Well until May the ski region Obergurgl-Hochgurgl will offer the best snow conditions for a ski holiday. When the sky sends warm rays to the mountains and the sun hours increase, then the winter dream becomes perfect. In the spring sun at the end of the winter, approximately from March, skiers will find the ideal mixture of perfectly slidable snow, warming sun and cosiness on the terraces of the many huts. In the afternoon the skiers will happily swap the skis and poles for a lounger and a cool beer.
Skiing also in the summer - the glacier makes it possible
The glacier ski resort Sölden is the place for everyone who is hungry for pistes even in the summer. A perfectly prepared snow surface enables snow fun almost all year round on the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glacier. 8 modern lifts take you to the starting points of 34 kilometres of pistes on the glacier in Sölden, only a short way from Obergurgl.
