Neil, your Friendly Ski Chalet Specialist in Ischgl

Ski Range 1,377m - 2,872m

Ischgl prides itself on offering the ideal mix of superb, extensive skiing and lively après ski entertainment, and has one of the longest winter seasons in Austria, opening at the end of November with skiing right up until May! Linked with the Swiss tax haven of Samnaun by the aptly named 'Duty-Free' piste, there is high-altitude skiing here to suit, stretch, flatter and challenge every ability level. At heart a traditional Austrian village, Ischgl has also embraced modernity, and is justifiably proud of its state-of-the-art lifts, avant-garde architecture and dynamic and energetic night-life. With so much going on the resort's motto: ‘Relax!’….If you can!


Ischgl Ski school


Instruction from the SnowSport Academy is considered amongst the best in Austria, and their instructors pride themselves on the enjoyment they bring to learning, which has to be fun, especially for children! Classes are offered for children from 3-5 years in the ‘Hugo’ ski-meadow, before progressing to proper pistes. For adults, as well as standard group ski/board lessons, the Academy also runs a range of other classes for ski-touring, free-ride, racing and other mountain training.

The atmosphere is dynamic and very good humoured, and you can party on after dinner in pubs, cocktail bars, or one of the numerous nightclubs - the Trofana Arena is renowned for energetic dancing to one of their regular visiting live bands. And when it comes to your Chalet Hotel staff's one night off, you are quite literally spoilt for choice by the huge range of restaurants of every style and every price range.

SKIING IN Ischgl

Ski range  1,377 – 2,872m

Ischgl and the neighbouring Swiss resort of Samnaun link to form the Silvretta Arena, one of Austria’s largest and most picturesque ski areas, with over 235 kms of beautifully maintained pistes, and a host of off-piste opportunities too. The centre of the skiing is the Idalp plateau, where two of the cable-cars up from Ischgl meet, allowing skiers to spread out far and wide via a myriad chairlifts and gondolas. This is also where the ski-school meets, and has its children’s and beginner slopes.

The Greitspitz is an area to head for to tackle the lovely long ‘Run 11’, so named for its uninterrupted 11 kms all the way back down into the village itself. More advanced skiers will love Run 14, reportedly the longest black run in Austria, whilst for those who prefer a gentler ski, the Flimjochbahn offers cruisy blues to the Alp Trida, where a further ‘Duty Free’ run down into Switzerland is a long, winding and attractive route. The acres of off-piste here also cry out for exploration, and there are several marked but un-pisted itineraries to follow. With over 40 recognised off-piste routes, this is definitely an opportunity to join a guide and discover the excitement and adrenalin rush of making your own first tracks through powder. After the addition of the Piz Val Gronda cable car last year, which opened up a pisted 3km long intermediate run, Ischgl continues to develop its lift system with another new lift for 14-15, the Pardatschgrat, departing from the village.

With few drag-lifts and wide open slopes, Ischgl is equally sought out by boarders, and the added bonus of the ‘Snow-Art Park’, with its kickers, ramps, half-pipes and rails, as well as a beginners’ area, has made Ischgl a hugely attractive prospect for those seeking the thrills and spills of free-style. The Silvretta Region Flexi-Pass is a great option for all who like to explore, as this adds one day each in the neighbouring resorts of Galtür and Kappl, both easily accessible by free ski-bus, adding a further 110 kms of pistes and a whole extra dimension to your Ischgl ski holiday.
