    Great offers for families

    The Obergurgl/Hochgurgl ski area also has some interesting offers for families. Children under the age of eight cost only 2 euros per day, and the children's discounts apply to young people up to the age of 19. Two ski schools, one in Hochgurgl the other in Obergurgl, offer ski courses for the little and bigger skiers. The children's ski courses are offered with lunchtime supervision. Both Ober- and Hochgurgl have their own children's and practice areas run by the ski schools. 

    However, younger children should not be left to explore the ski area in Gurgl on their own. With its 2 valley stations and more than 110 kilometers of slopes, the ski area is already one of the larger ski arenas, so children could easily lose their bearings. But together with the parents, the easily accessible blue slopes can be conquered without any problems. Hochgurgl is more suitable in this regard than Obergurgl, as there are many easier downhill runs here. Especially the many blue runs from the 3082m high Wurmkogel are excellent for parents with skiing enthusiastic children. The two fun slopes also provide a lot of fun (not only for the kids).
