There is only a limited amount of public facilities and only a few shops - Solden, which is a short distance away has a leisure centre and more shopping facilities and restaurants.

About the Mountains near Obergurgl

The slopes are slightly limited and some people feel they are lacking in challanging terrain. Most of the slopes are exposed and so there is little shelter from bad weather. The lift pass is expensive for such a small area but the piste grooming is very good. There is some intermediate terrain but many travel to nearby Solden for a more challenging experience.
