Ischgl Skiing & Snowboarding

For any respectable powder hound, skiing & snowboarding Ischgl is awesome if two important factors align; fresh powder snow AND when in front of the pack! If you need an explanation as to what that means, you probably need to do more skiing!

A cross-border resort seamlessly interlinked with Samnaun in Switzerland; it is possible to cross over on a piste trail in at least six high altitude locations along to the main ridge between the pass at Viderjoch all the way over Greitspitze & Palinkopf to Zeblasjoch near the start of the Smugglers Run. With much of its terrain high above the tree line, it is usually not until one starts to return to the village that the quiet forest lined trails can be enjoyed.

See the Ischgl-Samnaun ski trail map.

One knows a ski resort has alot of people in it when the humble express quad chair is an endangered species! In Ischgl, 6-seater chairlifts (and larger conveyances) rule the roost. Keeps lift lines moving, but increases rotations on the trails & off-piste significantly, and not necessarily in a good way. Popularity has its negatives. Luckily there are a host of other ski resorts nearby in the Paznaun valley, plus plenty of quiet, off-piste and backcountry for the adventurous (i.e. us!)

Lift Pass

Amongst the multitude of ticketing permutations on offer at ski resorts these days, two main lift pass options are available at Ischgl. A local lift pass which includes both Ischgl & Samnaun (that is a BIG local ski area!), plus a regional Silvretta Pass. The Ischgl-Samnaun pass is available for those with a guest card staying the resort and is a few € cheaper than the regional alternative.

The Silvretta Pass pass includes unfettered access to all the combined lifts (73 in total) & trails (365km) of Galtuer, Ischgl-Samnaun, Kappl & See ski resorts. Free local ski buses link the resorts together, providing a ready escape from the madness that is Ischgl. A cheaper Ischgl-Samnaun o
