If you are looking for an alternative to downhill skiing, you may be interested in our cross-country skiing options. Glide along diverse tracks through romantic winter landscapes, enjoy the calm, and improve your condition breathing the fresh mountain air. The stunning mountain panorama of the Ötztal Alps makes cross-country skiing in Obergurgl a truly unique experience.
Should your appetite not be satisfied by the options available in Obergurgl, you will find an additional 195 kilometres of tracks in surrounding areas. These will lead you through the entire valley. All tracks can be used free of charge and are suited for skating as well as classic cross-country skiing. Those of you with a need for more speed will enjoy a good sledge ride. The local ski bus stops right in front of the hotel and takes you to the sledge run, which is open and lit at night twice a week. Dash down the sledge run to a relaxing evening in the lounge of the Pirchhütt Hotel, where a glass of fine wine or a bottle of cold beer await you. Entertainment is provided by our large selection of board games. The relaxed atmosphere and plenty of opportunity for a good conversation invite you to stay for the rest of your evening.
In Obergurgl, snow is guaranteed as in no other ski resort in Austria. Due to its altitude, there is snow from December until May, which makes for an exceptionally long winter sports season. All levels from beginners to professionals will find the right piste, on over twelve kilometres of tracks, three kilometres of beginners’ tracks, and one kilometre also lit at night. Do you wish to relax yourself and your muscles after a long day on the tracks? Just take a break and enjoy our wellness facilities.
