Tips from Gabriel on Ischgl

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.

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.

Just can't stay away

Ischgl is one of those ski resorts that you just have to keep going back to! If you've been so many times, you know the slopes like the back of your hand, you'll probably go back just for the luxury - like the heated chair lifts. Also you might go back for the huge apres ski scene in Ischgl - which is world famous. You'll find all sorts of music mixed together and everyone gets involved from young to old. It is advisable to take plenty of spending money as everything is expensive and it would be a shame to miss out.
