Ski Schools in Obergurgl

Learn to ski in Obergurgl

Known as the Diamond of the Alps, the traditional village of Obergurgl is situated at an altitude of 1,930m in the Ötztal valley in Tyrol, only an hour’s drive from Innsbruck. The resort has a laid-back, international feel and is one of the most snow-sure in Austria, with a season that extends from November to April. Everything within Obergurgl is pretty compact and most accommodation is ski in/ski out, making it ideal for families.

Obergurgl and its direct neighbour Hochgurgl share 112km of slopes, the Top Express cablecar directly linking the two areas. The Obergurgl pistes are distributed on two mountains, the Hohe Mut (2670m) and the Festkogel (3038m). The slopes are mostly blue and red, meaning that the resort is ideal for beginners to intermediates.

All beginners meet by the Roßkar lift and Hohe Mut lift base stations. Here, young skiers learn how to glide and snowplough at the Kindergarten area. Older beginners are taught the basics on the green slopes nearby.

The ski schools in Obergurgl take their next-step skiers up on the Roßkarbahn, where the long and leisurely no.6 blue meanders back down towards Obergurgl. The 6 is ideal for working on parallel skiing.

The Steinmann lift at the east end of Obergurgl accesses various blue and red slopes that are optimal for practicing newly-learned skills after lessons.
