The hotel's two sun terraces are the perfect spot to grab a beer or a hot chocolate and enjoy panoramic views of the slopes after a day of skiing.

Hochgurgl is the smaller but higher neighbouring resort of Obergurgl. With slopes rising up to 3,080m, their altitude was not lost on Walter Ingham, the founder of the Inghams. 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.”

Skiing and snowboarding in Hochgurgl

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.

Hochgurgl has recently opened the doors of its new ‘Top Mountain Crosspoint’ vintage 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.

Skiing in Sölden is included

6 day lift passes are also valid in the superb Sölden ski area, where you can enjoy the bonus of 145km of high-altitude, glacier skiing.
