Ischgl is always popular - a real paradise in the middle of the Austrian alps. Excellent snow conditions as it is located on high altitude and with a high drop for advanced skiers.
Ischgl is also famous for the after ski. Most places open up just after lunch and remain open until the early hours next day.

Skiing in Ischgl

In Ischgl there are entire 330 km of pistes and over 50 ski lifts. The system is very modern and has recently installed new lifts in many places, making the lift queues short or close to non-existing. There's even a double-decker cable car that connects Ischgl to Samnaun in Switzerland (duty free area). A large part of the total ski area is located above 2,000 meters which contributes to the good snow conditions.

The skiing suits the entire family. There is a high proportion of blue / green slopes, about 40 slopes, and about as many red pistes. A dozen black runs.

Ischgl is very family oriented with several areas dedicated for children. There are also good opportunities for finding some untouched snow after a snow fall and several off-pist runs can be reached easily from the lift system.

Greitspitz is with its 2,872 meters the highest peak in the ski system. From here there are slopes in all four directions, and many of the steepest slopes in Ischgl are found here. Nearby Palinkopf is also something for those who search for challenges.
