Ischgl Ski Resort

Ischgl is renowned for its snow-sure slopes, efficient lifts and unique party atmosphere. In recent years Ischgl has regained its popularity with Brits and is a bustling resort with lots going on.

The resort is best suited to intermediate skiers and snowboarders and when there is fresh snow there are some excellent off piste opportunities. The slopes rise to 2870m with the village lying at 1400m, so the resort is snow-sure and good for early and late season. There is a good variation of slopes and the ski area is large with the option to ski down into Samnaun in Switzerland from the main slopes of Ischgl, or for a different day you can take the bus to neighbouring Galtur which is much quieter and the skiing is more mellow.

Ischgl can be an expensive place to eat and drink, and there are few budget options for accommodation. But if après-ski is your thing then Ischgl rivals the likes of St Anton with raucous après-ski straight from the slopes. The resort is busiest straight after skiing, but there are some options for late night partying and nightclubbing. There is a good choice of restaurants for eating out, with many of the restaurants being part of hotels.
