Holiday Information

Right next to the Festkogel gondola is one of the best value options available in Obergurgl - the Hotel Sportiv.

Hotel Sportiv
Hotel Sportiv

At a glance

  • Ski-to-door hotel next to the Festkogel gondola
  • Traditional Tyrolean decor and atmosphere
  • Superb value for experiencing Obergurgl
  • Sister hotel of The Crystal with complimentary use of their wellness and pool facilities.

Jam-packed with traditional Tyrolean style, the rooms are basic, yet warm and comfy, and service is friendly and welcoming - plus you’ve got some surprising extras from the neighbouring sister-hotel, Crystal Hotel.

The hotel bar and lounge decor is very typical of the region. Relax with a drink in front of a blazing log fire. Mealtimes are a chance to try some of the local cuisine – although more familiar favourites are also available to keep you well fed. Vegetarians are also catered for. And in case you’re peckish when you come back from the slopes there’s a great après snack spread available each day.

The Hotel Sportiv is connected to the Crystal Lifestyle Hotel which has a higher star rating. You'll have access to the Crystal Lifestyle's facilities including the spa, ski room and free kids' club.

You don't even need to venture outside to access the Crystal and its modern split-level spa, wellness and pool centre. The spa is where you can really get a taste of Obergurgl’s trademark luxury – indulge in a range of treatments and massages. Waterbabies can choose from a 15m sports pool or smaller relaxation pool indoors – or head out to the outdoor pool. There are two wellness areas too – clothed and non-textile saunas and steam rooms – plus plenty of space to unwind.

You’ll have an allocated spot to stash your skis, and hang up your boots to dry out – in one of the most modern ski rooms going. Plus you walk out the door and you're on the gondola. You can also ski virtually back to the ski room via either a blue or red slope.

Austrian twin beds
Austrian twin beds are very common in Central Europe. They’re simply one large bed frame containing two single mattresses, both with separate duvets and linen sets, that cannot be separated. Separate twin beds are less common and can often be head to head beds, rather than side by side, if they are available.

Please note: All rooms are in the Hotel Sportiv hotel, which shares its facilities with the Hotel Crystal Lifestyle.

Obergurgl

At a glance

  • One of the highest ski villages in Europe at 1,927m, ensuring excellent snow all season long.
  • Traditional town with an 18th-century church, high-quality hotels and cosy restaurants.
  • Modern lifts, like the Kirchenkarbahn gondola that leads to the Top Mountain Crosspoint restaurant and museum.

Situated in the Ötz Valley, Obergurgl is Austria's highest parish. The resort is framed by high altitude peaks and is famous for having an excellent snow record - resulting in some of the most snowsure skiing in Europe and a very long season.

The skiing and lifts start directly from the village. And as Obergurgl is relatively small, with lifts at either end, it's quick and easy to get up the mountain. There’s a free ski bus that regularly travels along the valley.

The mid-mountain Top Express gondola links Obergurgl with neighbouring Hochgurgl, for easy access to the extended ski area. The reliable snow and quiet pistes make both resorts a popular choice with families and a safe bet for those after gentle and intermediate runs. New for Winter 18/19, the Kirchenkar mountain gondola in Hochgurgl can seat 10 passengers with heated seats, more space and taking only 9 minutes to reach the top station.

Off the slopes, Obergurgl remains largely unspoilt - oozing character, charm and tradition. Plus there's a great selection of après ski bars, beer kellers and restaurants. If you want to take in the best views in the resort, head up the gondola to the iconic Top Mountain Star restaurant at 3,030m. This futuristic-looking building sits perched on top of the mountain and has phenomenal 360° panoramic views of the Ötz Valley Alps and the Italian Dolomites.

Ski information

Beginners
One of the big things Obergurgl is famous for is its snow quality - and that matters a lot when you're learning. Beginners are also well-catered for with the Mahdstuhl nursery slopes just below the village, where you'll be taught by the highly exceptional ski school. 16 beginners' slopes are covered on the lift pass, some rising to almost 3,000m with spectacular views.

Intermediates
Pistes on the Festkogl and Gaisberg in Obergurgl are mainly above the tree line and lead right down to the village. Experience some exciting tree skiing around the Steinmann lift, while Hochgurgl offers a variety of long challenging runs.

Advanced

The area has some surprisingly good advanced skiing. The Hohe Mut is one of the Tyrol's biggest bump runs. Sattel has some great off-piste and the exhilarating Festkogl ski route is steep and unforgettable in fresh powder. On the Hochgurgl side you can head for the Königstal for excellent off-piste or try the black runs down from the top of the Wurmkogl at 3,082m.

* Additional Charges

If the number of people staying in this room is less than the maximum occupancy, there may be a slight charge for under-occupancy. Booking fee’s apply on all bookings and will be confirmed at the time of booking. Minimum booking fee £6 per person.
