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 01-Mar-2017)
There was plenty of really good skiing in Austria on Monday 27th of February and with more snow on the way this week, things are set to get even better.
There were some really excellent conditions in the Kitzski area, with both Kitzbuhel (65/95cm) and Kirchberg (65/95cm) in great condition. The slopes up high were packed and grippy and looked a real treat. There were spring conditions at the bottom and the sun dominated despite a few clouds.
Conditions were equally good in St Christoph (60/180cm) and St Anton (60/180cm) mainly thanks to the new snow. The powder is mostly tracked out by now but the great on piste conditions make up for it. More snow is forecast over the week starting tomorrow. It was a beautiful day to be skiing in Damuls/Mellau (70/115cm) today with slopes in very good condition and the sun shining overhead. The Mittagsspitze peak and the surrounding slopes were looking particularly good.
All things considered, Austria provides an excellent option at the moment.
European Weather Outlook
It is set to be a complicated week for The Alps. Much needed heavy snowfalls will start late on Monday (27th) night and remain all day Tuesday, tapering off by early Wednesday morning. The heaviest snowfalls will be in France and Italy, but no matter where you are skiing in The Alps there will be fresh snow. Strong winds at altitude are forecast, so some ski areas may experience limited lift operations at times. It will be an excellent but challenging week of skiing ahead for the Alps in what can only be described as varied and complex season so far.
This weekend may see another round of heavy snowfalls, mostly on the southern and eastern sides of the Alps. Check back Thursday for a more comprehensive overview of upcoming conditions.
Elsewhere, snow is expected in the Pyrenees on Thursday, but not as heavy as what we will see in The Alps. Tuesday will see light to moderate snowfalls - Not enough to call a powder day but certainly enough to make on-piste conditions excellent.
Further north in Scandinavia, another typical weather week lies ahead. Light snow falls and fairly dull overcast skies will be the dominate feature. Temperatures will remain slightly below freezing creating most soft snow conditions.
