Ski school Obergurgl


Ski pros accompany you during your first turns on the slopes or give your technique the last finish: The experts of the Obergurgl ski school belong to the best of their profession and teach in single or group courses for children, adolescents and adults until the freshly baked winter sportsmen and -women can roam the wide pistes in the ski regoin Obergurgl-Hochgurgl on their own.

We know how to do it!

Since it was founded in 1922, the Obergurgl ski school has taught the pleasure of skiing to uncountable pupils big and small. Not for nothing it is considered one of the best ski schools in Austria. More than 100 certified winters sports pros, many of them also mountain and ski guides, will introduce you and your offspring to the art of skiing.

Ski courses in Obergurgl for small...

Rarely too early and never too late – this is how we do it in Tyrol when it comes to skiing. In the children's ski school Obergurgl piste racers from 3 years are welcome. With a lot of fun and empathy the ski instructors show their fosterlings what it takes to make the first turns on their own.

... and big winter fans

Do you want to race down the slopes like in the old times, but first need to refresh your technique? Or are you one of those who did not have time nor opportunity to learn skiing so far? The ski instructors in the Obergurgl ski school know exactly what to do and show you the basics and subtleties of the white fun in group or single courses.

New – Skivolution Skishow

Obergurgl has night skiing every Tuesday on a floodlit ski run 8 km long. The Festkogel Gondola operates from 6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m., and the floodlit ski run is No 6. For years the ski show, presented by the Obergurgl Ski School, has developed into a remarkable spectacle and is a set fixture on the weekly calendar. Following the success of the Jubilee Ski Show, "Return of the pioneers" which has featured for the past 2 years, we have now set our goals even higher and look forward to presenting a new ski show.
