The Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area offers leisurely skiers and piste explorers wide and spacious slopes above the tree line – all of which stretch from 1,800 to 3,080 lofty metres above sea level. What does plenty of space for safe skiing actually mean? In Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, it means that every skier has around 480sqm of piste at his or her disposal. A football pitch, on the other hand, ranges in size from 5,000sqm to 10,800sqm.
So, our ski slopes are really rather empty when compared to a pitch during a soccer match where 22 football players and one referee share the space. Here in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl the same area is shared by just up to 18 skiers. And instead of a horde of football fans, they get to admire the three-thousander peaks of the Ötztal Alps. Thanks to the altitude and width of the slopes, we can guarantee our skiers plenty of snow as well as space to wave, carve and accomplish wedge turns.
