Lunching on the slopes is a joy and with some superb views on offer it would seem almost rude not to take time out from your busy schedule on the slopes for at least a spot of lunch. The Schönwieshütte in particular is recommended for its views. In town there is a superb choice of restaurants, along with some excellent cafes and menu offerings are both local and international. Many of the hotels also offer first class dining.
Obergurgl's nightlife is pretty traditional. The centre of the village is traffic free at night, so that locals and visitors alike can enjoy a quiet and relaxed evening. There are however a number of lively Après Ski bars, the mountainside Nederhütte is usually the first to get going and you will find be the Krump'n Stadl and Josl Keller worth a look. Elsewhere you can find karaoke and dancing.
In addition to those après ski standards, ice-skating and bowling, you can try curling and there is also occasional night skiing. Some of the hotels also offer additional activities.
Mix with the locals and have some fun, there is plenty of traditional nightlife on offer.
Nervous skiers and snowboarders will find some great spots to gain confidence on uncrowded slopes.
