Season start & ski opening

The season's first pistes to open

When the temperatures get lower and days become shorter, skiing fans wait for Mother Hulda to make her bed and turn the Alps into a ski paradise. Obergurgl-Hochgurgl enjoys a special status; every year it is Tyrol's first ski resort to kick off the new skiing season. Enjoy skiing and snowboarding already from November in the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski resort at a time when other ski regions can only dream of snow.

Obergurgl celebrates the season opening with numerous exclusive events and an informative framework programme. In addition, great ski pass discounts will sweeten your first days of skiing in Tyrol.

Opening-Special

From 13th to 23rd November 2014 guests in Obergurgl will get a discount on ski passes and ski rentals. During the winter opening all adults will enjoy a special incentive: all adult ski passes for the price of senior passes; all sports shops offer an additional 20% on ski rentals.
