The Top of the Mountain concert 2014

This famous end of season event was first held 20 years ago and has seen international stars such as Kylie Minogue, Elton John, Tina Turner, Bob Dylan, Deep Purple and Mariah Carey on its unique stage. Ischgl’s Director of Tourism, Andreas Steibl explained that this is a very special season for the ski resort as it is not only celebrating the 20th anniversary of this important music event but also the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Silvretta Cable Car in Ischgl's ski area. Having one of the world's hugest music stars performing here will be the perfect way to celebrate these important dates! The concert will take place on a massive stage of over 7000 feet specially constructed for Robbie Williams’s performance.

Skiing was something that was sort of forced on me as a child. When my parents signed me up for the school ski trip when I was 11, I think I sulked for a whole month! However, I have no idea how to thank them as I haven’t looked back since!
