Samnaun Ski Resort Switzerland

Samnaun ski resort is a remote Swiss mountain enclave linked to the popular Ischglski resort in Austria. Famous in Switzerland for its long cross border Smugglers Run & duty-free shopping, the skiing at Samnaun is pretty good too!

Samnaun Skiing & Snowboarding Terrain

As the Swiss counterpart to Ischgl, skiers & snowboarders at Samnaun have access to a huge amount of lifts & terrain. The 238km of groomed runs, 45 modern lifts & over 1500m of skiable vertical make it a serious proposition for any snow lover. Ooodles of easy access off-piste on powder days add to the attraction as does the prospect of the 11km long longest runs

Samnaun’s link with Ischgl is an absolute boon for the Swiss ski resort. Samnaun ski slopes (with three very notable exceptions i.e. the Smugglers Run), whilst fun, are generally of a shortish vertical & limited difficulty to all above intermediate level. Perfect for many, mundane for others! Ischgl ski resort terrain has at its south, big vert advanced terrain off the Palinkopf & Piz Val Gronda that make it all worthwhile.

Samnaun Accommodation

The village of Samnaun is spread along the valley floor & just like the ski resort above it is in two halves, so is the village below in two parts . At the terminus of the Smugglers Run, the ‘duty free’ village of Samnaun Dorf is a cluster of hotels, bars restaurants & shops. Further down the valley, past the main cable car, the Samnaun Plan village, with its more traditional setting, is located at the end of the other valley runs. Too confuse matters further, above Samnaun Plan is a small group of hotels called Samnaun Laret & in between it all, at the cable car base are numerous chalets called Samnaun Ravaisch. All are connected by free local buses, so it matters little where one stays.
