Ischgl Ski Resort
Ischgl is one of Austria’s finest resorts. It’s home to a big linked area of cross-border skiing, the lift system is the world’s leader and the après scene is up there with the best.
Snowsure, wide and always immaculately groomed would sum up the pistes in Ischgl. Its high-altitude terrain, linked over the Swiss border to Samnaun, is always amongst the first to open and last to close each season. Add in the world’s most comfortable and powerful lift system – there’s been on average a new lift here each winter since 2000 – and it is clear why the resort is always busy, perhaps its only slight downfall.
The number of visitors does mean however that there is always a buzz around the compact resort centre, especially during après. The action starts on the slopes at Paznauner Thaya, before ending up in the legendary Kuhstall or Schatzi Bar – often continuing through dinner into the small hours. Despite this you can easily have a quieter break and enjoy one of the resort’s numerous family-run hotels, many of which have excellent spas.
Our Ski Club Rep Service will be in resort from January right through until April.
