Obergurgl and Hochgurgl are connected with each other through a cable car so you can ski in both areas without taking a bus. The nature is very beautiful. The mountains are pretty high and are very rough. There are not many trees where those two villages are located in because they are above 1800meters. But therefore you have through the winter season very good snow conditions.
The slopes are in all different varieties. Enough for the beginners and also for the experts the area offers easy runs, black runs, skiroutes and even touring is possible. The slopes are very wide and long so you can really enjoy your turns.
They did not had a funpark over there when I joined the area. Also the possibilities for making party are rare but we always went to Sölden where you can party all the night.
The prices are higher than in Sölden and more families prefer the area, but I would recommend the area to everyone.
