Known for being family friendly, this beautiful Austrian ski resort has spectacular views over the Otz Valley and its glacial backdrop. It's also known for its convenience, most of the best places to stay in Obergurgl are only a few minutes walk from a ski lift. And it seems to be so well organised that there are rarely any queues. It's also known for its snow record - there's plenty of it, and there's often enough of it here to ski all the way from November to May.
As well as the package-booked hotels and resorts, Obergurgl has a selection of B&Bs and some high end spa style resorts, so there's plenty of choice. And because it's got a reputation for being family friendly many hotels and resorts have family size suites or apartments.
Obergurgl isn't just for kids and novices, despite the warm welcome beginners receive. There are plenty of exciting off-piste opportunities here, and often masses of powder. Enough so that the American ski team do some of their European training here.
During the season the apres-ski is friendly and there's plenty of local music to accompany it.
There are also night skiing opportunities.
As well as the spectacular hiking opportunities, you can also still enjoy the thermal pools and the pleasures of the alpine lakes. If you're travelling with your family you may also appreciate the pony rides and mini golf.
