0 / 0

Gurgl: Experience superb winter in all its glittering facets. The Diamond of the Alps boasts absolute snow reliability from November until late spring.

Gurgl offers fun and excitement for beginner, intermediate, and advanced skiers on 68 miles (110 km) of perfectly groomed slopes with an absolute snow guarantee. The "Diamond of the Alps" lives up to its name not only when it comes to brilliant accommodation, service, and enjoyment, but also for skiing, snowboarding, powder riding, and free-style skiing. 25 lifts are spread over the ski area, which boasts some of Austria's best snow conditions at high altitudes (5,900 ft - 10,105 ft /1,800 m – 3,080 m) from mid-November through early May.

Every year, Gurgl is the first non-glacier ski area in Tirol to open its slopes to eager winter sports enthusiasts. When it comes to intriguing food experiences, Gurgl gets points for refinement and originality. The “Diamond of the Alps” shines in full splendor with umbrella bars, rustic mountain huts, top quality mountain restaurants, and après-ski-bars strewn across the area. Crowds are unheard of in Gurgl's exclusive setting. The resort is designed to give visitors privacy and an undisturbed Alpine experience. 

The Ötztal Super Skipass comprises all Ötztal Ski Areas in a single Ticket. It bundles 221 miles (356 km) of slopes, 90 mountain lifts, and six ski areas in a single pass. Visitors who purchase a ski pass for 3 days or mor can choose from well-known winter destinations such as Sölden and Gurgl, family-friendly ski mountains like Hochötz-Kühtai, or three more ski areas spread all over Ötztal.
