The choice is yours – ski hard or party hard. But if you can manage both, you’re in for a hectic, thrilling week! Ischgl is a pretty but also pulsating village just 90 minutes from Innsbruck with a fantastic snow-sure ski area. It’s compact and easy to explore via a series of underground tunnels and escalators. The après-ski is renowned yet varied and the nightlife is positively urban in nature with a vast array of cafés, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. 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.

Intermediates skiing in Ischgl
The Silvretta Ski Arena with six interconnecting valleys and over 50 blue and red runs is ideal for intermediates. 10 of its 44 lifts rise up to 2,700 metres and, along with an extensive network of snow canons and north-facing runs back to the village, Ischgl enjoys an extremely reliable snow record. There is also a selection of picturesque forest runs and the lovely long Alp Trida run down to Samnaun (included on the local area pass).
Advanced skiing in Ischgl
With as many kilometres of off-piste as on piste skiing, Ischgl is an expert skiers paradise. Off piste enthusiasts will enjoy the high terrain now accessible due to the new Piz Val Gronda gondola.
Our favourite run
'Ischgl's red run , from top of the Palinkopf to Samnaun. There is something about skiing two countries on one ski run, and the piste down to Swiss Samnaun is a lovely long and scenic valley run with a 1,000m vertical drop' (Neil Lodge, Product Manager Austria)
