You will see that after a few hours on the mountain you will be able to walk in show shoes or do cross country skiing safely and with lots of fun.
Discover the fascinating winter world every Wednesday
Already in the Stone Age, hunters and gatherers noticed that the effortless progress in the deep snow of winter time is only possible successfully with snowshoes. Since the mid-1990 years, this form of walking has become a new trend sport and an alternative to classic ski tours.
Walking with snowshoes through the deep snow and looking at the winter world with different eyes is a special nature experience for young and old. If you can walk you can also go snowshoe hiking. We offer the snowshoe hike on Wednesday afternoons. The minimum number of participants is 4 people, please register the day before until 5.00pm.
Some equipment is necessary: Hiking shoes or winter boots, walking poles and snowshoes.
You can get the snowshoes at our ski school office before you start. Here in Gurgl you can be close to nature and enjoy the fresh mountain air of the Oetztal Alps. With this winter sport you can get off the busy tracks and can discover the Alps from different point of view. Book your very special magic winter experience an unforgettable hike with your family and friends.

A whole body work out, which is fun
Relaxing at the highest level is guaranteed, despite the efforts of cross country skiing. 12 kilometres of cross-country trails in Gurgl offer a big playground. Cross country skiing is a sport, which strengthens the whole body movement.
Every muscle is trained during cross country skiing and above all the condition is continuously increased. This sport, which has its origin in Scandinavia, also enjoys great popularity in Austria. You will also find the best conditions for this in the Oetzal Valley. Once you have experienced the movements of cross-country skiing, this sport is a lot of fun.
For not to struggle on your own with the technique, book a cross country group lesson with Skischule Obergurgl, also to ensure that you learn the exercises from the beginning with fun and laughter.
