Best ski resorts for families is Obergurgl

Best ski resorts austria


If you’re taking young children to the Alps you want guaranteed snow cover at village level throughout a long season. At 1,930m, very high for a resort at the eastern end of the Alps, Obergurgl happily obliges.

You also need a short transfer and a low-risk environment. The traditional village is set around a fine church, an easy one-hour drive from Innsbruck. There’s no through traffic and the ambience is essentially family-friendly.

The resort attracts a loyal band of regulars, who love its low-key atmosphere and well-run, traditional hotels and scattering of chalets.

Obergurgl sits at the head of the Otzal Valley, a mere 90 minutes from Innsbruck and just 20 minutes from the larger resort of Sloden. Over 110 km of immaculate pistes offer good intermediate skiing and beginners should also find enough to keep them occupied for a week. Advanced skiers may have to look for the off-post after a while or make the short journey to Solden after a few days to keep them happy. On the plus side, Obergurgl has an excellent snow record and there are, rarely any lift queues. The village, if you can call it that, is small and quiet. Not the liveliest of resorts, but if it is the snow you came from, then there is enough to feed and water you in the resort. If you get bored at Obergurgl, get a taxi to Solden which is much busier.GURGLERSTRASSE 118

Best ski resorts for partying is Ischgl


Ischgl is Austria’s second most important resort.It ofers   full-throttle nightlife and high-quality intermediate pistes. If you like your après as much as your sking, and think you might be too old for St Anton, then put it on your hit-list.

It’s a paradoxical place. The accommodation is mostly upmarket and more expensive than in many resorts. The clientele tend to be at least 10 years older than the twentysomethings who pack into the Mooserwirt above St Anton. But that doesn’t stop the Ischgl crowd from climbing on the tables and partying as if it were their last day on Earth.

From 3.30pm, the atmosphere is electric. It’s also wonderfully ski resorts austria
