Sitting towards the edge of town, the Alpenaussicht is in a good location between the main lifts. It's a 6-minute walk to the Festkoglbahn gondola, and 10 minutes' to the Rosskarbahn chairlift and Hohe Mut Bahn gondola. To get up the hill even quicker, you can walk 2 minutes to the Wiesenlift drag lift and then ski down Blue 6 to the Festkoglbahn. Blue 6 is also your closest run to home when you ski back at the end of the day. If you prefer a more challenging home run, take Red 12 instead.

Austrian twin beds
Austrian twin beds are very common in Central Europe. They’re simply one large bed frame containing two single mattresses, both with separate duvets and linen sets, that cannot be separated. Separate twin beds are less common and can often be head to head beds, rather than side by side, if they are available.
Please note: A handful of the twin rooms (27m²) are located in the eaves of the property.

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).
