Tips from Austin on Ischgl

We have been to Ischgl about 4 times now and it is just super. The ski area is large and extensive, with fast lifts. There are beautiful gentle slopes and some wonderful steep black runs. The slopes towards Alpe Trida (Samnaun) are great for carving. The run to Samnaun is not suitable for snowboarders, who will have a lot of walking to do. Lots of nice mountain restaurants on the slopes, where prices are lower than expected. Ischgl itself is quite pricey, so bring a well-filled wallet with you if you want to really enjoy the après-ski. The Kuhstall is top notch, and Fire & Ice, always guaranteed a good time!

Skiing for all levels

Ischgl is a ski area with inspiring terrain for all skiers from beginner to advanced, especially those who also value a good après-ski scene. What is unfortunately missing are cosy and rustic huts. Unfortunately you're more likely to find huge self-service restaurants that are geared to handle a "mass of skiers" as quickly as possible! Hopefully in coming years Ischgl will start focusing more quality over quantity.

Went to Ischgl for the first time in February with my husband. We love skiing and après-ski and found Ischgl to be the perfect place for both. It was expensive, but you get what yo pay for. We loved that you can walk almost everywhere and don't have to rely too much on the ski bus. Excellent slopes, we had a blast skiing every day. We'll definitely be back.

Modern ski resort with beautiful pistes

In a word: amazing! The Ischgl ski area is almost all higher than 2000m, making the slopes always perfect. There are wonderful day trips for skiers in both Austria and Switzerland. The lifts in the Silvretta Arena are modern, fast and comfortable. The only thing missing was cosy mountain huts; most of them are large and trendy. But there is good après-ski in the Kuhstall or the Trofana Alm in the Ischgl valley.

Most beautiful ski resort in Austria

We have already seen a lot of resorts but Ischgl is really great. Less suitable for beginners and families with children. Skiing extreme and challenging so good for expert skiers. Blues are more like reds and reds are blacks! Super fast and efficient lifts, ski runs are well maintained and good restaurants up on the slopes. Austrian prices are quiet high but here it wasnt more expensive than average. The accommodation was more expensive but everything in the center is at least 4 stars. We sat in Solaria, top class a real treat! Fantastic food, spacious clean rooms and excellent facilities. Well worth the money! We will definitely come back but not with our small children as it would be a shame to miss out on the all that challenging skiing!

Just got to go

We just got back from Ischgl - helped my brother settle in for his 2nd ski season here and we popped in to the James Blunt concert - little brother got cheap tickets! Ischgl is just amazing, the skiing is just what you expect and the snow was perfect this weekend.
