Hochgurgl is the higher of the two, located at a very snow sure altitude of 2150m, that’s nearly the same height as Tignes In France. This year for the first time your 6-day lift pass covers skiing in James Bonds favourite glacial ski resort of Solden, adding a further 145km of skiing to the 110km available at Hochgurgl and Obergurgl.
The skiing in Hochgurgl is suitable for all levels of skier and snowboarder. The local area offers 35km of blue pistes, 55km of Red and 20 km of the steeper Black runs. The slopes face North and West, so snow reliability is good from November to May most years.
Nightlife is a little low key compared to many Austrian ski resorts and is mainly limited to activities around the hotels and bars.
Hochgurgl and Obergurgl are the places to visit if you are serious about skiing on Austria’s best snow.
