  December 17, 2017

Southwest of Innsbruck in the Otztal valley, the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl Ski Area has 29 pistes served by 23 lifts accessing a maximum vertical drop of 1,100m. This ski region is known for its quality snowboarding conditions throughout the winter due to its base elevation of 1,930m.

The Obergurgl-Hochgurgl Ski Area is part of the Otztal ski region that includes Solden.

After a day of snowboarding, check out the infamous Nederhutte for some apres ski action. While Obergurgl isn't exactly known for it's nightlife, try checking out either the Josl Keller or the Edelweiss Bar.

The villages of Obergurgl and Hochgurgl don't exactly have the traditional Austrian charm of other ski towns since they tend to have more purpose-built ski buildings.

Overall, Obergurgl-Hochgurgl is the 31st most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 67 snowboarding resorts in Austria.
