In Obergurgl, off the prepared pistes, modern & traditions have been impressively combined to a place of peace and comfort.
The young, motivated team at Schönwieshütte spoils you with home-made treats and local dishes. Special attention is paid to the origin and the regionality!
The fastest and most comfortable way to the hut is by ski-doo transfer. We pick you up free of charge from the station of the Steinmannbahn.
The traditional hut is located next to the Steinmann-Bahn chairlift, surrounded by the beautiful pine forest above Obergurgl. The location used to be known as "David's Skihütte" and has welcomed skiers and snowboarders for many decades with its delicious local food and friendly atmosphere. Now it has been taken over by new owners Jo and Michael.
The Zirben Alm at the end of pistes 4a and 5 in Obergurgl is the ideal place to chill out, have a drink and top up your holiday tan. The hut is just a few metres from the pine forest and is close to the Steinmann-Bahn chairlift, making it the perfect slopeside bar.
Guests who are not skiers or snowboarders can also join in the après-ski fun: the Zirben Alm is just a 20-minute walk from the centre of Obergurgl.
