Hochgurgl Ski Resort Guide & Piste Map
Hochgurgl Resort Description
Hochgurgl is the highest ski holiday resort in Austria and the second highest in the Alps offering high altitude skiing. Located 2,150m, on top of the Ötztal Alps, stands for genuine hospitality and charm combined with outstanding luxury in an exclusive setting.
Joined to the Obergurgl ski resort this area consists of high gentle bowls suitable for beginners and early intermediates. It is really seen as a part of the Obergurgl ski area rather than a separate resort. Both the Obergurgl and Hochgurgl ski areas are linked to each other by the Top Express Gurgl ski lift that essentially travels horizontally and over 2 vast valleys that separate the areas. The combined ski area offers high altitude ski pistes that often enjoy superb snow and have a glacier skiing feel to them, with wide lumbering pistes between craggy peaks.
