With a six-month season, lifts up to 2,800 m and a buzzing nightlife scene, Ischgl is the perfect resort for skiers looking for both reliable snow and sparkling lifestyle.
If you’re after a ski area with reliable snow, plentiful slopes and an addictive lifestyle, then Ischgl is the resort for you. Set deep in the stunning Paznaun Valley, its gargantuan ski area expands 238 km over some of the most majestic mountains in the Alps, offering varied and snow sure skiing from November all the way until May. Carve your way down pristine pistes at Idalp, or explore the freeride terrain off Piz Val Gronda. A must-do is the 35.7km gold smugglers circuit, which connects Ischgl with the Swiss duty-free town of Samnaun and is one of the longest ski circuits in the world.
The fun carries on down in Ischgl’s beating centre, where the streets are filled with high-class shopping, vibrant bars and top-rated restaurants. Finish a day of skiing off at the atmospheric Kuhstall or experience live shows and top DJs at top class spots like Trofana Arena and Pacha.
Foodies are spoilt for choice too, with gourmet restaurants of every kind to pick from. Even the shopping is special here, with small boutiques, designer brands and the best winter sports gear all on offer. It just goes to show what a unique place Ischgl is; an Alpine metropolis where mountains and lifestyle go hand in hand.
