We were in Obertauern the third week in January, stayed at the Petersbuhel hotel, which was great,very friendly staff and excellent food. You can ski out if there is snow on the small road outside the entrance , its about 70mtr down passed the Enzian hotel to piste 14a, ski in is from the other direction as @CANV CANVINGTON said from the bottom of the Gamsleiten 1. Obertauern has a very good website , where you can check the weather and look at the webcams, it also has an excellent interactive piste map. .We caught the ski bus one day to Mauterndorf as the visibility in Obertauern was bad due to low cloud, Smaller area but some nice easy skiing.

+1 for the Bar/Caffe Dolomiti -- great Peroni on draught and it's not far from the Dahu, down the hill past hotel Diane, and turn left at the hotel Alpina. The Franz Josef is further down the hill and in the pedestrianised area next to the Majestic hotel which has a piano bar - not the cheapest place in town, we also a couple of ether bars , the names of which escape me at the moment. The Dolomiti was my prefered option-- it helped that it was next door to the Alpina, where we stayed and they also showed the rugby.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

We went to Madonna last year with although we didn't use ski school this time, we have in the past when we went to Folgarida. One of their instructors is English (Wayne) and many others speak English. Lisa BrentaSki is on the forum and may see this and be able to help.

Stayed in Madonna last half term, we only ate out once (as we were on H/board basis), can't remember the name of the restaurant, but according to Google maps it's called Le Roi,the location is about 100 mtr uphill from the pedestrian precinct, opposite the hotel Miramonti and next door to our hotel the Alpina. I had an excellent pizza, and the other food that I saw looked pretty good, the place was packed.
Well, it's only polite to Register

About 3 years ago spent Feb half term in Folgarida , none of the hotels were ski in/out , but only 2 minutes in the hotel minibus to the gondola, our hotel didn't have a pool, but I believe that other hotels did. We never came across any queue in the whole week that was worth mentioning, last year Feb half term we skied Madonna Di Campiglio, once again no pool in our hotel . but the other hotel that we could have chosen did have a pool Both hotels were only a few minutes walk to the first lift . We paid around £1000 per person, which included Flights, transfers , half board , lift pass , and ski/boot hire
Then you'll get to see more forums.

I have printed out your review as a reference,although we wont be very adventurous as we have two teenage girls in our group of 8, who have never seen a pair of skis , let alone strapped them to their feet,but they are booked into ski school so could put me to shame by the end of the week . 22 sleeps to go
which other snowHeads love to answer.

I went on a last minute (old) :) boys trip back in January , stayed at the Lohmann, friendly staff ,clean , good food + free drinks with the evening meal (alcoholic or soft). There is a childrens play room , but I have no idea what is actually in there.There is also a Sauna and solarium . As far as the Mountain is concerned the Hochgurgl side has the nicer runs IMO. Hopefully if I've done this correctly , this link will take you to a previous Obergurgl thread Ian
You know it makes sense.

The Scheiber rental shops offer overnight ski/boot storage , around 20 euros for 6 days, but Obergurgl is small enough , that wherever you finish ,it's only a few minutes walk back to the Lohmann .
Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

Hampton, I would class myself as an intermediete skier , this was only my 7th time skiing, only ever had 2 lessons( on the wrong side of 50 to worry about it), and I found Red 25 very enjoyable. Like truffaut says the harder reds are all on the Obergurgl side . If you dont fancy the 300 mtr walk to one of the gondolas, there is an easier way , when you leave the ski/boot room of the Lohmann and walk out onto the street , turn left walk about 80 mtr, cross the road and through a small car park with a white hotel on your left, you should be able to see the very short button lift(wiessenlift) just the other side of the ski school , at the top of this lift it's a very short diagonal ski to the Festkogelbahn gondola,when you get to the top of this gondola it's a blue 5/red3(easy) to the "Top Express" - gondola link to Hochgurg. If you come back over to O/gurgl late in the day , agree with truffaut that the runs back down can be interesting , especially red3 as my rearend will testify. Enjoy yourself, by the way the Wurmkoglhutte - good self service restaurant on the H/gurgl side.

Hampton , can't comment on Red 11 as I never tried it as it was marked as an "off-Piste" route , it branches off from Red 16 which starts from the top of the "Hohe Mut" , 16 is a good run (narrow in a couple of places) all the way down to "Davids ski-hutte", where you can get a 6 man lift which takes you halfway up 16 again, or rather than come down 16 again - you can opt for blue 15 , which joins with blue 6 outside the "Nedrhutte" There is a nice red 25 over in Hochgurgl which takes you down passed Hochgurgl, and through the trees parallel to the new toboggan run, finishing at the Hochgurglbahn gondola,When you take this gondola to the top,ski across (150mtr) to the "Top Wormkogl 2 " lift , this takes you up to the top of the Wormkogl,over 3000 mtr , fantastic views and a good cafe here.Once again the Lohmann not the best hotel in town , but had no complaints, also free drinks with the evening meal, wine beer ,and soft drinks

As I've had plenty of information from this forum, I thought that it's about time I added my tuppence worth,and came up with my first post. Stayed at the Lohmann last week in Jan. rooms were clean and tidy, food was good -always a choice, staff very friendly and helpful, there is a ski rental shop within the hotel. The hotel is situated equal distance from the 2 gondolas(about 300mtr). Obergurgl has a mix of red and blue runs, whereas Hochgurgl has mainly blue - a couple of which, are very wide, the pistes on both areas are not very well signed, it's not a big problem as you soon find your way round. There is a very good apres ski bar/restaurant on blue 6 in Obergurgl called the "Nederhutte", live music from about 4.30 three times a week, get there an hour before if you want a seat.If you have one tooo many, they have a skidoo with a trailer to get you down to the bottom .
