Obergurgl Resort Info
Obergurgl is great for beginners and intermediates, which, along with good ski schools, makes for an excellent family ski holiday destination. One of the highest resorts in Austria at 1930m, Obergurgl has an excellent snow record and long season. Linked to Hochgurgl, there are over 100km of runs to enjoy. For more advanced skiers and boarders, there is often some nice off-piste to get that adrenalin pumping, although not much else…
Obergurgl ski resort
The resort itself is pleasing to the eye and offers a sense of alpine charm. Off snow activities are a little sparse, although après ski is jovial without being too hectic. Hotels are generally of a high standard, though there is a lack of independent restaurants (they are pretty much all part of the hotels).

Snow Overview - Austria (snow news updated 22-Apr-2014)
The majority of resorts in Austria have now closed for the season following the relatively busy Easter period. Some fresh snow has fallen over the last week though, which is great news for the resorts that are still open.
15cm of fresh snow has been reported in the Arlberg area, which includes Lech (15/40cm), Zurs (15/40cm) and St Anton (15/115cm). This is the last week of the winter ski season for this area.
You can still enjoy skiing at the higher ski areas in Austria too, including the likes of Obergurgl (33/149cm), Kaprun (120/260cm), Hintertux (30/400cm), Neustift (100/365cm), Kuhtai (60/90cm), Kaunertal (305/343cm), Pitztal (239/322cm) and Solden (0/314cm). Fugen (0/70cm), Galtur (20/85cm), Ischgl (0/80cm) and Kiztbuhel (0/66cm) may not have the depths of some of the glacier skiing areas but you can still enjoy good spring skiing at these resorts too.
Cloudy weather is expected to dominate this week and with the freezing level rising up to 3,000m most slopes will could receive rain.
European Weather Outlook
The forecast is for cloudy skies across the major European nations this week and over next weekend. The freezing level is supposed to rise to around 3,000m this week before dropping back down to around 2,000m next week. This could result in wet weather for many areas this week following by snow conditions on the higher slopes next week.
