Ischgl, Austria

*  Huge ski area with state-of-the-art lift system... 

*  Excellent snow record..

*  Some of the liveliest après-ski in the world...

Ischgl has it all – extensive, varied slopes linked to Samnaun in Switzerland, highly dependable snow and (arguably) the most efficient lift system in the world. In many ways the skiing has all the attributes of a high purpose-built French resort, but the village is unmistakably Tirolean and the nightlife is in a league of its own!

The skiing

Ischgl’s slopes are spread across a number of high snowy bowls (mostly) above the treeline. There is an excellent variety of terrain for all levels – lots of wide motorways for easy cruising, as well as a number of genuine challenges both on and off-piste. There are also several beautiful long runs well away from the main lift system, including one down to Samnaun in Switzerland where you can stock up on your duty-free.

 

Complete beginners have a decent snow-sure nursery area up the mountain at Idalp, but no special lift passes.

The resort

Located in the Paznaun Valley not far from St Anton, Ischgl is a sizeable village with an ingenious lay-out (involving underground moving walk-ways) that means that you never seem to be far from the lifts or the centre.

 

Although of traditional Tyrolean appearance, Ischgl is a major international resort that is popular with the jet set and boasts some of the liveliest nightlife in the Alps! Non-skiers are well catered for with an excellent sports centre and lots of winter walks, many of which are at altitude and accessible by lift.
