Ski finish 2018 in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl

As is the case every year, skiers in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl can once again look forward to perfect conditions all the way through to the end of the season. The resort’s high altitude of between 1,800 and 3,080 metres above sea level ensures plenty of snow well into spring. From 07.04.2018 until 22.04.2018 there will be a great end-of-season party featuring highlights such as Yoga in the Alps, the chance to drive a piste groomer, guided ski tours for beginners and traditional live music high in the mountains.

Top conditions from start to finish

For years Obergurgl-Hochgurgl has been famous for its spring skiing. All the pistes in the resort remain open through until the end of the season, while the high alpine location ensures lots of sunshine during the spring months. Soft snow, warm sun, higher temperatures and longer days – what’s not to like about spring skiing?

Yoga in the Alps

Yoga is a wonderfully relaxing activity for mind, body and soul – but Yoga in the Ötztal Alps is even better! From 08.04.2018 to 14.04.2018 there will be daily yoga courses held in the ski resort (in bad weather they will take place in the Piccardsaal Obergurgl). Yoga in the Alps is the ideal way to relax and find your inner peace on holiday. Namasté!

Spring fun on and off the slopes

Skitouring – a great experience.

On 09.04.2018 skiers will have the chance to experience the feeling of skiing soft spring snow with instructors from the Obergurgl Ski School. In small groups, instructors will take participants to the best places in the resort to enjoy the unique sensation of carving down through soft spring snow. Another activity on offer is ski touring for beginners, where experts from the Alpincenter Obergurgl will be on hand to show newcomers to the sport how to have fun and stay safe off piste.

Drive a piste groomer

Every evening our fleet of piste groomers heads out into the resort to prepare the slopes ready for the next day. Anyone who has always dreamt of driving one of these powerful machines now has the chance to do so on 11.04.2018 and 18.04.2018, when professional drivers will show you how.

Après ski with live music

On the final two weekends of the season (14./15.04.2018 and 21./22.04.2018) there will be live music many of the mountain huts in Obergurgl and Hochgurgl. Sit back, relax, enjoy a drink and soak up the atmosphere while you gaze out over the spectacular Ötztal Alps.
