The town of Obergurgl is fairly quiet, so if you’re after lots of lively night life, stay elsewhere.
There are convenience stores, clothes and ski stores, hotel bars and a couple of small bars. There are pizza restaurants and cafes ranging from cheap and cheerful to up market.
For skiing it is ideally nestled at the bade of the mountains and has lots of piste for all levels.
During the summer months I would imagine that the stunning winter views are equally as stunning and perfect for walking or just relaxing. There are lots of different hotels ranging from chic to apart hotels, so something for everyone.
There is a regular shuttle bus into the nearby towns which are free to use with your lift pass, however no one checked to see if we had one anyway

Exceptionally well run ski resort with numerous fast lifts and a free bus service operating between Obergurgl and Hochgurgl which provided a variety of runs. We found it not crowded and with great skiing conditions. Obergurgl is a small and pretty town with character. Definitely worth a visit!

We have been to Obergurgl many times and we have never been short of snow even in bad years. The lifts are very efficient and very little queueing . Certainly not like the scrums you get in some places. Skiing probably a bit limited for those keen on black runs but it is only 20 minutes on the bus to Soelden which effectively doubles the size of the ski area and this year the ski pass covered both areas.

Mostly nice open slopes of various grades with plenty of lifts. However, some rather narrow parts of some that can become very busy and so churned up that turning can be difficult.
Also, certainly in April when there is some thawing in the afternoons, some blue runs have quite difficult spots compared with other resorts. Mornings could be icy.
Beware too- Red 33 became very slushy and bumpy in the afternoons making a return home quite an effort.
Motorcycle museum cafe great and well worth a visit for all for both lunches and drinks both inside and out.

With icy condition the week we were there, and some bad weather we did manage to ski every day. The runs are relatively short with one two exceptions. Many of the runs are little more than 'roads' and the return to Obergurgl is by a narrow crowded blue road, which had a couple of annoying bottlenecks. There is definite lack of wide red runs for intermediates whilst some blacks felt more like reds.

A very busy time of year, but the lifts are fast and the queues are generally few and far between (I don’t think we waited for more than 10 mins ever).

Very well maintained pistes - a good mix of fun Blues / long Reds and accessible Blacks (so good for us). The bubble over to Hoch is very efficient, where you will find wider, more varied pistes, and breathtaking views, We skied in Hoch for most of the day and then finished in Ober. Good mountain restaurants (Top Mountain Pass and Nederhutte in particular). Can’t comment on the nursery slopes / ski schools though (although we are told the instructors are very good)

Nice being high up, with snow in the village. We were lucky with the weather - 6 days of blue sky with a dump the week before.

We took the bus to Solden one day (easy). LOVED the Ice Q restaurant (simply breathtaking and worth the visit alone) but were less impressed with the ski area. Much busier, more queues and more “chopped-up”. Admittedly we didn’t get onto the higher glaciers and were only there for a day so this is a limited view.

Will definitely go (to Ober and Hoch) again.

If only 'Gurgl' and Solden were a bit closer and the buses between them less crowded the area would be perfect. For us, staying in a favourite Obergurgl hotel dictated location and was perfect for the intermediate skiers in the group. Advanced skiers will need to use Solden too to avoid excessive repetition (especially if off piste conditions are not great), but it is included in the lift pass as many times as you wish. Solden has the bulk of ski miles and greater variety, but the village is bigger, noisier and quite ugly.

Beautifully maintained generally wide pistes, with a good interlinking lift system. Very few queues.
If snow permits plenty of off piste; on piste mostly blues and reds and flattering blacks! Plenty of mountain Hütten and the stubl at the Jenewein serves very good lunches for all appetites.
Good for beginners

Loved Obergurgl Hochgurgl. Not much apres ski but fine for us being a middle aged couple. Quite an expensive area, Went to Alpbach last year and that was much cheaper. Great snow and great runs.

If it’s nice leisurely skiing you’re looking for, this is NOT the place for you. Beautiful but I would be careful if you are a blue run person. It looks as if there are a lot of blue runs but in my experience some of these would be better classed as red runs. Also slopes and edges not fenced off properly. Weather can change very quickly due to height of resort. So beware. Do to this and bad visibility combined with badly fenced run, I went off a run to an unexpected steep slope and had an accident, breaking my leg. Rescue services excellent. But not sure I’ll return to This resort. Perfect if you are an intermediate to advanced skier. NOT FOR BEGINNERS or NOVICES!
