I was there last year on the sports license and experienced the best skiing of my life.
Big variation on the slopes, all located on the sun side, but thanks to good preparation and some people never got up. The village is small and does not seem to have any major construction plans, while the lift system is constantly improving, which gives enormous overcapacity. Think I stood in line once a week.
It came 40cm snow for one night when I was there, allowing for endless opportunities for off-piste. Most tourists in the village (probably English upper class type) seemed totally uninterested in the snow, so you got everything for yourself the rest of the week.
However, the system is generally quite flat and has a majority of red, beautiful carving backs.
Highly worth one or more visits

Positively:
No lift queues at all !!! (Was completely shocked when you went to the Sölden one day and left to queue for several minutes;))
All off-piste for yourself
Nice forest in Zirbenwald
Modern lifts
Skiing to the village
Snow proof (the village is about 2000 meters high)
Hütter in class of war (Everyone sent from usi, which meant that neither did you know Kallas bragdlopp or Jönsson's trip;))
Cozy city

negative:
Relatively expensive
Small town (good and bad)


Becoming a really interesting expansion now that they will replace Kirchenkarlift in the next few years towards a 10-gondola and pull up the further 1000m up in the street there. Really nice skiing in a couple of years then;)

Can only agree with previous reviewers. Really good place with perfectly groomed slopes and barely any people on the slopes. During the week we were there I stopped for a lifetime and it was because the lifter had stood still for a couple of minutes, otherwise it was only to go down to the lift again.

The village is quite small and there are not so many places to go out but we were there mainly for skiing, there were some afterski places and they were good as long as you are not looking for a party with stuffy afterskis. Did not see any park in the area, so are you looking for parking, this is not the place for you. Only in the afternoon it was crowded in some passages down to the village.

Also drove a night skiing one evening, was not lit as the night skiing in Åre, for example, but the light was enough to make you look good and you were almost alone in the slopes ..

Prices of restaurants in the village and hill are maybe 5-10% higher than other places in Austria but they are still good, as I realized that's why there are so few people there is that "only" you have about 5000 beds and do not want to expand the village especially much more.

Sport lovers winter 2013 and we lived in Obergurgl. A town with ski-in / ski-out facilities if you get to the hotel on the right side of the road, ie the side facing the slopes. No elevator queues to talk about, even though we visited the resort during "Carnevalen / Fasching ". There are amazing offpiste tracks between the villages, probably the guide to recommend. Most of the skiing is of a high-grade nature, meaning that it is a bit deferred if the weather is not perfect. The forest that is found is really nice, but a little small = quickly discovered.
Suspect that a reason that there are not so many people here depends on the prices of the hotels can be perceived to be high, most of the hotels are high class. However, prices for lift passes and food on the slopes I experienced as affordable.
Personally I had a fantastic week with a lot of sneezing.

Been in Hochgurgl and Obergurgl and went for 3 days last season and it was really good. We were there at the end of March and the snow was incredibly good. The first two days was a really bad sight, but for 3 days it would dump a lot of snow and it became a pillow of its kind. In the area, the most pistilian is the pudding of man for himself. There is a whole area where they do not piss, but leave the cushion left for us powder lovers, there they only have anchors, but it's worth standing in them with that snow. In addition to that area there are lots of good places but lovely drip and a lot of snow.

If you want to get to a place where you do not get rid of the pillows, then it's Hochgurgl / Obergurgl to go to. When the snow falls and the sun shines, it's incredible. My best puder day of the whole year I had there, a memory of my life.

Less famous place that deserves more visitors. One can hope that it will remain a hidden gem for a few years.

High-altitude terrain, nice slopes, eastern gemyt. The ski system consists of two different divisions, which are linked together via a gondola crossing the mountain.
We stayed in Sölden when we visited the resort, but the village itself seemed to be calm and serenity, perfect for those who like to ski with the family on holiday.

Should be experienced!

I have been to Obergurgl 6 times in a row since I was 10 years old. I'm almost only good at saying about the place. Cozy alport at high altitudes with snow safety that fits most of the time. In addition, Obergurgl is very well connected to the Hochgurgl neighboring site, which I think has better backing, in terms of length and quality. One tip is to go to the top of Hochgurgl in a piste we called the "Italian back" for 5 years. It is true that you see the whole of the Dolomites (Italian Alps) at the top. Terribly cheeky!

Little plus / minus for Obergurgl

+
Skiing - Awesome high class.
Lift systems - Well organized.
All different "huts" - Recommends a lunch at David's Hütte. Very nice.
Josl Keller - Best trek in the evenings, although the ages 18-25 do not exist in Obergurgl.
Night skiing - Manchesterpister for yourself. Wonderfully.
Ski school - Nice, friendly and instructive.

-
Nightlife - Really sad, one reason I will not accompany you this year.
Prices - A bit high for being a little alport without a whistleblower.
The size - If you are looking for the same backing all the time, this is perfect. Otherwise not!


I have at least learned to ski in Obergurgl and I am sure I will return there with my children as I grow older.

For those who prioritize large ski systems, small quiet town, snow safety and German before nightlife and wide range, this skiing system is fantastic. About thirty minutes after passing Sölden you arrive at Untergurgl and then Obergurgl / Hochgurgl. According to people in the village, snow is always good during the winter months - and I've experienced the two times I've been there. In addition to the few flat main stretches, the slopes are almost unpopulated - and well-ventilated. The lift system is surprisingly modern and smooth to be such an unknown place. For those who like to go off the slopes, Obergurgl / Hochgurgl is perfect. You can ride steep mountain slopes, exciting walks and through the forest between Obergurgl and Hochgurgl. The lack of freeriders means that you have a lot of untouched snow for yourself - for several days after a snowfall. Me and my friends found a path in the woods that we had for three days after a snowfall! If you are looking for nightlife, fat after-ski and twin-tip skiing, this is completely wrong. If, on the other hand, you prefer about the music of the Austrian Alps then this is paradise! To sum up: a favorite place I will surely return to.
