Have you ever ventured into a fun park? The gentlemen at the Audi Nines definitely have. Here you can watch the skiers and snowboarders performing spectacular stunts and jumps over the ramps and enjoy the excitement. What is shown here by the winter sports enthusiasts is truly impressive.

Electric Mountain


Anyone looking for party in the mountains, will find it here. Every year, the Electric Mountain Festival not only attracts numerous spectators, but also top-class musicians from all over the world. So if you want to see the elite of the music industry at a very special concert in the middle of the mountains, you should not miss it.

Nassau Beach Club

Snow Special

We are visited by the crew of the legendary Nassau Beach Club in Ibiza. It is not the first time that they are turning their backs on the party island for a week to transform the slopes in the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area into a very special party location for five days. Top DJs and other musical artists turn the Nassau Beach Club Snow Special into a party on the slopes with an Ibiza feeling.

To the dates

Night tobogganing &

night skiing

The no. 6 blue slope is floodlit every Tuesday. That means it's time for another night of skiing fun. Things get spectacular at the Festkogl Alm at 9 p.m. This is where the ski schools present a breathtaking ski show. Thursday is also a day for night owls, but this time it’s: grab your sledge! The 3 km long toboggan run is a real highlight at night.

Funcross Race


If you've always wanted to know how fast you can ski or snowboard, the Funcross Race is the ideal choice. Here you can tackle the Funcross as often as you like after registering and receiving a sticker. All age groups compete here for the day’s best time.

Start of the

summer cable cars

The Hochgurglbahn I & II gondolas and the Top Wurmkogl chairlift start their summer season again on 25 June. One day later, the Hohe Mut cable car is up and running for the summer too. So you can get up the mountains quickly, easily and comfortably until early September.


via ferrata workshop

A good basic technique is a prerequisite for a successful climbing day. During the Climbhow via ferrata workshop you will learn how to use the via ferrata equipment correctly, the basics of climbing via ferrata and how to plan a suitable via ferrata day. You can learn and experience all this in Obergurgl on 18 July. The meeting point for this is the main office of the Obergurgl ski school at 9.30 a.m.

An event is held for all trail runners in Gurgl in June. Here you can take part in the glacier trail run on technically demanding routes between 2,000 and 3,000 metres above sea level and experience numerous Ötztal glaciers up close.
