Skiing and snowboarding in Ischgl
Ischgl’s ski area is aimed at intermediates and advanced skiers (but beginners will also feel perfectly at home here) and offers just as much off-piste as on-piste. Intriguingly, it’s linked with the duty-free Swiss enclave of Samnaun - in fact a large section of the terrain is actually in Switzerland.
Ischgl prides itself on its ultra-modern lift system, many of which are high-speed and even heated, giving easy access to more than 238km of pistes with a further 40km ski terrain in nearby Galtür. A major cable car has been added to its lift complex: the 18.5 million Euro Piz Val Gronda, which has hugely improved access to unpisted freeride terrain in the Fimbatal Valley. Also new is the 3 S Pardatschgratbahn from town, serving slopes with a vertical drop of 1257m (4124ft) – said to be the biggest vertical drop served by a triple-cable gondola in the world.
