From Sölden in Ötztal, you have easy access to three surrounding peaks above 3000m - the so-called Big 3. No other resort guarantees snow at such dramatic heights, a mere 1h 15mins transfer from Innsbruck Airport. There is plenty to keep you busy outside of your skiing practice, including night skiing, cross-country trails, swimming and a toboggan run. Not to be missed is also the design restaurant IceQ at the top of the Gaislachkogel at 3048m.
Home from home for many UK visitors, Obergurgl is one of Austria's highest resorts and guarantees snow cover at village level, so you too will fall in love with the pretty surroundings. Traditional and welcoming, you will also benefit from easy access to the many blue and red "groomers" so that finding your ski legs again comes easily.
