Known by many as the “Diamond of the Alps”, Obergurgl is a stunning traditional Austrian mountain resort. As a very snow sure resort with a huge variety of runs as well as an abundance of things to do other than ski, Obergurgl will satisfy the non-skiers as well as every standard of skier, making it the perfect destination for a luxury ski holiday.
As the early snow flurries have been covering most of the Alps, most resorts have been building solid bases for the upcoming season and the highest resorts have been lucky enough to start their season a little bit early. In this blog I look at the best ski resorts to visit for early season skiing.
When it comes to skiing, lift access is often one of the most important things to consider. As alpine skiing began becoming popular in the early 20th Century, the first ski lift was built in Germany in 1908 and now, over 100 years on, resorts are always looking to upgrade their systems. In this blog I look at all the brand new lifts that skiers and snowboarders alike can look to be the beneficiary’s of….the new high speed lifts in the European Alps for ski season 2017/18.
This week I headed out to Austria and during my stay I was lucky enough to squeeze in a day in Solden to see the women’s first World Cup event of the season. The environment was incredible, the weather was fantastic and best of all the snow coverage was amazing. It was easy to forget that this was a weekend in October and only when turning to look down the valley was I reminded that we weren’t in the middle of the winter.
So you are thinking about your next trip to the Alps and are contemplating all the different ways that you could get to your chosen resort. If your first thought is “what is the nearest airport I can get to?”…..why not look at getting to the Alps by train?
