pop quiz: did Kevin Spacey make it beyond the sea

Having the Snowcard Tirol this season means we can venture further West for our skiing day trips. We decided on a three day ski trip.

  • Day 1: Kuhtai and Oetz
  • Day 2: Obergurgl and Hochgurgl
  • Day 3: Soelden

Skiing in Obergurgl and Hochgurgl

Obergurgl and Hochgurgl are linked ski resorts. The link-lift being a long gondola across a windswept mountain side.

Obergurgl and Hochgurgl Ski Resorts

For most, there is sufficient skiing on either side of this lift to keep you busy for a day, but in the interests of research we did both; after all, the long lift is a chance for a cup of coffee.

What started as a lovely sunny day ended with us being the last ones going up on a lift as it was closed due to high winds – yes it was also snowing and seeing to the next piste marker wasn’t possible: We don’t know for sure, but we suspect ‘changeable’ would be a word often used to describe the weather in the Gurgls.

The skiing was good, the mountain scenery spectacular, the bars quite posh and the number of English people around higher than ‘normal’.

pop trivia: Reportedly written as a bet in 1958 by Bobby Darin it became a hit too, Splish, Splash contains references to other songs from the era.
