"High altitude skiing with quality hotels"

Obergurgl (1,930m) and its smaller, higher Neighbour of Hochgurgl (2,150m), are situated in the upper Ötztal Valley on the main Alpine ridge where snow is always guaranteed from November through to May. About 90 minutes drive south-west of Innsbruck with slopes rising up to 3,080m, their altitude was not lost on Walter Ingham, the founder of the Inghams’ tour operation. He brought his first party of skiers here in 1934 after placing an advert in The Times. It said: “Private Party to Ski the Tyrol  - 14 days for 12 guineas.”  At the end of the 1990s Obergurgl and Hochgurgl finally got a crucial mid-mountain link between their two previously separate ski areas - the Top Express eight-person gondola. A red run from the top of the Schermerspitze chairlift down to Obergurgl gives an impressive vertical descent of 1,500m. The two-stage chairlift up the Wurmkogl gives access to some truly challenging red runs and some fun off-piste.

New for winter 15/16, Hochgurgl opens the doors of its new ‘Top Mountain Crosspoint’ museum and restaurant set at the bottom station of the new Kirchenkar 10-person gondola.  The multifunctional building that hosts a motorbike museum and a state-of-the art mountain restaurant with table service and panoramic views.
