More info: Ischgl 

The Austrian ski resort of Ischgl is located in southwest Tyrol and, together with the Swiss ski resort of Samnaun, makes up the Silvretta Arena ski area with 239km of slopes. Thanks to the high altitude of the ski area, snow conditions here are particularly reliable. The village of Ischgl is relatively large for a ski resort, and has a lively street scene with shops, restaurants and plenty of après-ski options. In the tunnel that leads from one side of the village to the other, you'll find photos of previous Top of the Mountain artists.

Born and raised in the ski paradise of Vancouver, Canada, I learned to ski before I can remember, balancing precariously on my parents’ skis as they sailed down the hill. I started snowboarding in my teens and am now delighted to be exploring everything Europe’s ski scene has to offer!
