Active & Adventure
If the pistes are not enough …
Some winter sports enthusiasts want to go beyond Ötztal's prepared pistes. The risk, the challenge, the adrenalin rush in your body – it’s up to you whether you want to experience your adventure in the snow on skis or on your snowboard. Free-ride in powder snow or at the Snowpark Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, and your thirst for action will definitely be satisfied.
Free-riding over the unspoilt Ötztal hills
Ötztal is located at high altitudes and is therefore blessed with snow like hardly any other mountain region in Tyrol. The main valley and many of the tributary valleys offer a great range of off-piste terrain. The Snowhow-Map helps you memorise the all-terrain areas around Obergurgl and Hochgurgl as well as the slope inclinations and dangerous areas in advance; it's the perfect tool for planning your free-riding day. The Freeride Map Obergurgl, which is available at the tourism office in Obergurgl, is another great tool. Get the latest information locally, e.g. at the skiing school in Obergurgl or at the mountain guide office, which is located right next to Chalet Obergurgl. Additionally, you can choose from among 4 locations at which you can test whether your avalanche rescue equipment works properly (2x Festkogl, 1x Hohe Mut, 1x Wurmkogel).
Close to the Bruggenboden lift at the end of Obergurgl you will find the Snowpark Obergurgl, an ultimate fun landscape in the middle of the ski resort. The snow park was designed by the park designers of QPark and it offers a variety of obstacles and kickers. The area is divided into a beginners' and an advanced section. The 13 obstacles include a 6 metre long Rainbow-Butter box, a two-part Curved box, a lollipop, various tubes and several kicker jumps.
Look forward to a skiing holiday in one of Austria's best ski resorts – Obergurgl-Hochgurgl with guaranteed snow in the Ötzal Alps. In the apartments at Chalet Obergurgl you will enjoy first-class comfort and warm Tyrolean hospitality. Spend your ski holiday here and benefit from the close vicinity to the ski lift.
