Snow reliable ski region in Austria

Ski holidays with snow guarantee

In Obergurgl-Hochgurgl you will find white slopes already in November – this makes skiers’ hearts beat faster. Enjoy the pure winter dream on Tyrol’s roof in one of the most snow-reliable ski resorts of the Alps.

Skiing from November until May

Normally, the winter brings lots of snow to the Ötztal - especially in the mountain village of Obergurgl. Furthermore, not only skiers, but also cross-country skiers, tourers and free riders are pleased to know that they can rely on our high altitude and snow cover in an altitude of 1,800 to 3,080 metres. But even in unusual winters when the heavens decide to release a bit less of the white stuff, Obergurgl is still among the best snow reliable ski areas.

Snow guarantee in the Ötztal thanks to modern technology

In order for your ski holidays in the Ötztal to be the experience of your dreams, something you look forward to for months in advance, Obergurgl gives Mother Nature a helping hand via high-tech snowmaking equipment. Incredibly, we can cover almost 99 % of our total of 110 kilometres of slopes with man-made snow, so that you can always enjoy the region’s unique panoramas and its majestic views already at the beginning of the season.

Five weather stations in the Ötztal provide our snowmaking system with all necessary weather information. A central computer automatically knows when it is cold enough for snow production, and before you know it, glittering flakes are already falling to the ground. The only ingredients: reservoir water, air and cold temperatures. This means that Obergurgl is not just home to a snow-sure ski area, but also helps to preserve the nature of the Ötztal.

Skiing until spring

You just cannot get enough of skiing and would prefer to still ski while enjoying the early summer temperatures on your ski holiday? Why not feel the warm rays of the spring sun and celebrate the savoir-vivre while everyone else has already arrived in everyday life? The high alpine location makes the Ötztal a snow reliable ski area into early May. The snow continues to hold onto its phenomenal quality for sun-hungry ski aficionados, thus we recommend the glacier ski area of Sölden in midsummer.

Thanks to the snow guarantee in the ski regions Obergurgl and Hochgurgl as well as on the nearby glacier, sun skiers and firn skiers will absolutely get their money’s worth.
