Winter in Ötztal Valley

Ötztal Valley in Tyrol boasts perfect conditions for exclusive ski holidays – offering unique ski, ski touring, sledging and snow shoe experiences in smooth deep snow in winter and on shining white crystals in spring.

Six ski resorts, including two glacier ski areas, with state-of-the-art infrastructure covering a total of 350 kilometres of pistes guarantee loads of snow, fun and adventure.

Guests at Hotel Alpenblume benefit from direct access to three ski lifts that take them up to the slopes. Enjoy access to Festkogelbahn, Roßkarbahn and Hohe-Mut-Bahn cable cars in close vicinity.


The Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski resort is known as the rough diamond of the Alps. With its countless pistes, cliffs, ramps and slopes, freedom-loving skiers, ambitious ski tourers and daring freeriders find perfect untouched conditions.

Cross-country skiing

Cross-country skiing across snow-covered fields and through sparkling forests is already a unique experience par excellence, improving your cardio-vascular system, coordination skills and endurance.


When you hear somebody shouting of joy in the forest between the top and the bottom station of the Hochgurglbahn ski lift, then you know: The tobogganing season is on. Put your tobogganing skills to the test at the natural three-kilometre run with its 25 adventurous turns.


Taking your time wandering mindfully through Gurgl’s winter wonderland in hiking boots or snowshoes is a truly rewarding experience. More than 12 kilometres of sign-posted, cleared walking trails open up a world all too often unseen: mystical pine forests, snow-covered fields along a sparkling frozen river, paw prints in the snow or even some left-overs from the animals living in the forest – always accompanied by the fascinating dance of glistering snow crystals.
