Ischgl Ski Holidays, Austria
“Huge modern ski area, excellent snow record and bustling après-ski scene”
With 45 modern ski lifts and 239 km of perfectly groomed pistes, Ischgl is arguably one of Austria’s finest resorts and has a long winter season with 90% of its skiing above 2,000 metres.
The Silvretta Arena connects Ischgl with the Swiss duty-free Samnaun area and the vast network of pistes is best suited to intermediates with plenty of freeride terrain on offer too.
The stylish resort centre is compact with a high concentration of quality 4* Superior and 5* Hotels and Ischgl’s après-ski is up there with some of the best in the Alps. Ischgl’s Season opening and closing concerts are legendary and its reputation for fine dining and events makes this a busy, bustling resort throughout the winter.
On the Mountain
Three high-speed Gondolas funnel the morning crowds up to Idalp which is where the beginner areas and Ischgl’s snowpark are located. Novices and timid intermediates may want to take the lift back down at the end of the day to avoid some steeper runs to resort level.
Cutting away from Idalp, intermediates are truly spoilt for choice with lifts and pistes stretching out in all directions. There are two long, winding ‘Duty Free Runs’ down into Samnaun, Switzerland, worth it just for the wild scenery.
Advanced and expert skiers should aim for the Palinkopf sector which offers challenging reds, blacks and some long itinerary routes under the new Piz Val Gronda lift. There are also some fantastic ski touring options – hire a local guide.
Large restaurants offer a wide choice of on-slope dining with self-service and table service options.
Off the Mountain
Ischgl has some of the best après-ski in the Alps and you’ll hear the music thumping out of the slope-side Paznauner Thaya long before you see the party crowd. In town, the legendary Kuhstall, Schatzi Bar and Trofana Alm pack out post skiing and there are also quieter cafes and bars in which to unwind at the end of the day.
Ischgl is also about more than just the skiing plus après party and offers some of the finest award-winning Restaurants in Tirol and plenty of upmarket shops, lounge bars and clubs. Keep an eye out for regular music and gourmet events too.
Other activities include the all-new Silvretta Spa (December 2022) with indoor and outdoor pools, sauna area, gym and ice-rink. There is also a 7 kilometre floodlit toboggan run, bowling, indoor tennis, sleigh rides and winter walks.
