6 Things for Grown-Ups to do in Obergurgl

The Esprit children have so many fun things to look forward to! Whether it is Snow Club or Cocoa Club, our Sprites and Spritelets are sure to have an amazing time. But what are the other options for some of our Grown-ups in Obergurgl?

Visit the Nedurhuette

Enjoy a spot of après at this Obergurgl institution on the piste. There’s dancing on the tables and live music four evenings a week. If you don’t fancy the ski down afterwards, they’ll happily run you back in their ski-doo trailer.

The Spa at the Crystal Hotel

This stunning spa is the perfect place to unwind and soothe aching muscles. Book a treatment and enjoy making use of the facilities including the indoor/outdoor swimming pool overlooking the slopes.

Go night skiing

Enjoy floodlit skiing on certain slopes every Tuesday from 18:30 until 22:00 (subject to weather conditions.) A fantastic opportunity to experience late night skiing on these wide open pistes.

Visit the Top Mountain Star

This circular bar/restaurant and viewing platform sits a whopping 3,080m above sea level. Perched on a mountain ridge, with panoramic views across the valley, it really is a must visit on a clear day.

Have lunch at David’s Huette

The best food and atmosphere on the Obergurgl slopes (in our opinion!). A great stop for lunch, easily accessible for even novice skiiers. A reasonably priced menu, with some traditional dishes, all served up by the entertaining and welcoming staff. David’s Huette does get very busy at lunchtime though, so do go early if you can.

Spend the day in nearby Solden

The venue for the Alpine Ski World Cup and also where parts of the most recent James Bond film, Spectre, were filmed, Solden offers the chance for some stunning skiing with more than 145km of piste. When you buy your Obergurgl-Hochgurgl lift pass, you can add in Solden. There’s a public bus to get there, which takes about 40 minutes. Even better, take advantage of our ski hosting there on Thursdays. We also offer a private bus service there at a cost of 15 euros, taking just 20 minutes.

Basically, what we are trying to say, is don’t think the children will be having all the fun! There is plenty for the grown-ups too!
