Review of Obergurgl

29th October 2010 by koru 

Visited last Easter (2010). Snow still in great condition. Only slushy right at the bottom. Could ski to within 100m of hotel. Superb weather. Warm sun most days. Considering it was Easter hols, the pistes and lifts were not too busy. (Way less than Courchevel Easter 2009, which was like the M25 in rush hour.)

Agree with WTSS review, mostly. But not sure the resort is “remote”. It took us just over an hour in a minibus from Innsbruck. Most top French resorts are 2-3 hours from the airport.

Hotels are indeed expensive, but they are also superb. Look at the reviews on Trip Advisor and compare with the reviews for, say, Val d’Isere hotels. We stayed at the Alpina, which was brilliant.
