Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Obergurgl to Sölden, worth it for a day?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi folks, having a great week in Obergurgl but weather looking a bit ropey tomorrow. Rep has suggested bussing down to Sölden for the day. Anyone done this, worthwhile trip?

Any top tips much appreciated (even its “just stay in the Nederhutte all day instead”!)

If I'm skiing Obergurgl for a week I'll spend a day in Solden. I actually prefer Obergurgl as an area but there's some good runs in Solden. It's easy to get a bus down the valley, I wouldn't spend money on the tour company taking me in a coach. If the weather forecast is bad for Obergurgl then I'd expect it to be much the same in Solden.

Solden is worth it just for the change or scenery/variety, plus there are some pretty decent runs. As @Valkyrie, says use the free bus service, gives you more flexability, and why pay for it when its included in your pass.

Yes, I'd do it, certainly if you can ski red runs. Take the bus to Solden, two lifts later and you'll be at the Gaislachkogl where they filmed James Bond. Worth it for minor bragging rights, surely.

When we were there a couple of weeks ago the lifts in OG and HG were closed due to the wind. Solden's were all running except for the glacier.
It's worth a trip down if you want to ski, or even just hang around the town. Go a block back from the main street and there's a nice walk along the river, or use the funicular to get up to the beginner ski area for slope side bars if you don't want to go all the way up the mountain.
As others have said use the free buses.

If you are going to ski earlier is better as the slopes do tend to get chopped up and skiddy by the afternoon.

I actually prefer Solden to Obergurgl - much bigger, a sense of travel across an extensive area and much, much better piste marking than Obergurgl (which is terrible in poor visibility).

Enjoy your whirl!

There’s plenty of skiing for a day I think I went twice in the week I went to Obergurgl.

Thanks all - I've organised a trip for 2 families of 4 to Obergurgl for the first time, in half term week. I was going to ask exactly this question, so now I know.

Any other Obergurgl tips out there? Nederhutte is on the list as we want to show the kids what real apres looks like.

If it's cold and icy and in the shadows head over to Hochgurgl as that gets the sun before Obergurgl.

Number 12 (red) down to the Top Express on the OG side can be tricky for beginners although it is quite wide so if they are comfortable with turns and traverses it may be manageable.
The better option would be the bus (I've had beginner lessons in OG and this is what we did as a group). Coming back is no problem as you can do it all on blues.

Lot of motor bikes plus various other exhibitions

def worth the Solden trip for variety if staying in Obergurgl . . .just avoid the Giggioch area as it is usually rammed with beginners and wannabees . . .
