Skiing areas in the Ötztal

Skiing in Ötztal guarantees that all skiers and snowboarders get their money’s worth. With the two big skiing areas in Sölden and Obergurgl/Hochgurgl as well as the family-friendly skiing area Hochoetz and a few small skiing areas (e.g. in Gries or Niederthai) there are countless downhill slopes for all levels.

Sölden with the Ötztal Glacier is especially popular with advanced skiers and freeriders, since it is the highest ski area in Austria and therefore guarantees to have snow.

Early booking bonus

The principle of “the earlier, the cheaper” applies in the ski resorts Sölden & Gurgl. Due to the dynamic pricing structure, you can save up to 20% if you buy your ski passes in the online store in advance.



Rapidly down the mountain

Tobogganing adventure

Adrenaline junkies and families with children alike get their money’s worth during tobogganing. The area around Längenfeld features especially beautiful natural toboggan slopes.

Here are some of our favorite slopes:

At the end of Gries/Längenfeld you go up to the Nisslalm snack bar. The ascent starts very flat and then leads upwards in curves with a moderate gradient. The Nisslalm snack bar is located on a plateau offering a wonderful view into the Sulztal valley. After a refreshment at the hut, the 5 km (3 miles) long natural toboggan slope leads down to the valley.

At the other end of Längenfeld you go up to the Wurzbergalm Inn. You will follow several serpentine roads up the forest road and into the idyllic forest. After about 1.40 hours you will arrive at the Wurzbergalm and can fuel up for the descent with delicious home cooking.
