Sölden, with its two glacier skiing areas - Rettenbach and Tiefenbach - traditionally opens the season for skiing holidays in the Tyrol. The World Cup held in Sölden in October also opens the skiing season in Ötztal, which includes legendary events and parties. Obergurgl has one of the best snow records in the whole of the Tyrol thanks to its altitude and also boasts the very latest ski lift technology. During the winter months from November to May, you will find a wide range of superbly maintained pistes, providing holiday-makers in Obergurgl on their Tyrolean skiing holiday with the best possible conditions.
