Whether it‘s boarding or skiing, jumps in Fun Parks or free-riding in the powder snow away from the pistes – those of you who just can’t get enough, can quite simply do more. In the land of milk and honey for those with an appetite for the winter, a holiday in Tyrol means more than “just“ skiing. State-of-the-art chair lifts and even a cable car which has double-stack cabins take everyone where they want to go. From the

Those of you who enjoy crossing borders can just pick up your skis and head from Austria to Switzerland. A joint ski pass from Ischgl in Austria and the Swiss duty-free region of Samnaun, connects the Silvretta-Arena – a  high altitude, snow-assured winter sports paradise which has over 238 kilometers of pistes.

For those of you who prefer things to be short and sweet, here are the figures in a nutshell:

  • 238 kilometres pistes

  • Longest piste: 11 km

Sunny skiing

Sunny skiing in Ischgl means skiing until May because thanks to its high altitude of between 1,400 and 2,900 meters, the Silvretta Arena offers an absolute snow guarantee until late spring. 238 km of the optimally prepared, cross-border ski runs lead from Ischgl out into the Swiss Samnaun; modern lift facilities and world-class entertainment make this Alpine lifestyle metropolis the ultimate winter sports venue.

Ischgl Closing Day: Top of the Mountain Concert

The concert is held at the top of the mountain .  The Fimba or Silvrettabahn gondolas carry you up to the concert.  The concert price is included in the lift pass price.  Veterans know what to expect:  a party atmosphere non-plus-ultra.

Every year two Top of the Mountain gigs are used to mark the start and close of the resort’s winter season, and previous headline acts include Robbie Williams, Elton John, Tina Turner, Katy Perry, Jan Delay, 30 Seconds to Mars and Muse playing to a 20,000-strong audience.

After a day on Silvretta-Arena Ski Resort’s immaculately groomed slopes, cruise over to Idalp at an elevation of 2,300 meters to enjoy this top live act. The concert is free to all with a valid ski pass. Thanks to its high elevation advantage, reaching up to 2,900 meters above sea level, Ischgl boasts superb end-of-season snow conditions and all lifts of Silvretta Arena are in operation until until early May 2020.

EROS RAMAZZOTTI LIVE IN ISCHGL

BELLA ITALIA IN THE SNOW

“Se bastasse una bella canzone, a far piovere amore…” As soon as you hear the opening chords of this famous Italian song, you can feel it: this special “Eros feeling”. Italian superstar Eros Ramazzotti has achieved what others only dream about. Countless sold albums and sold-out concerts prove what fans have known for a long time: Eros Ramazzotti’s music goes straight to the heart.

Full of emotion, his songs also carry an air of Italy. Hit singles like “Cose della vita” or “Adesso tu” immediately make you think of sun, fun and zest for life. However, as we all know, these three things cannot only be found on the beaches of Italy but also in the mountains of Tyrol. The perfect combination of both: the Eros Ramazzotti concert at the 25th Top of the Mountain Closing Concert in Ischgl!

25th Top of the Mountain Closing Concert: Italy meets Ischgl

This year sees the 25th anniversary of the famous Top of the Mountain Closing Concert on the Idalp. Reason enough to celebrate this special occasion with one of the world’s biggest superstars!

If you’re a fan of soulful music and typically Italian “dolce vita”, you should circle May 2, 2020 on your calendar. That’s when Eros Ramazzotti will make the snow on the Idalp (and more than a few hearts) melt with his most famous hits.

In addition to his best-known tunes, the Italian singer will also present songs from his new album “Vita ce n’è”. If you don’t want to miss out on this one-of-a-kind event, you should be quick to get your tickets!

Ischgl Aprés Ski

kustall

Ischgl has a very lively nightlife reminiscent of its neighbour St Anton. There is the same cosmopolitan mix of international guests although the over-riding theme is more Germanic here, compared to the strong British presence of St Anton. More than a dozen bars are lively as soon as the lifts close and more than thirty are on offer once the evening is in full swing.
Slopeside open air socialising is possible at a number of venues, notably the Marends at the hotel Elizabeth and the ski-in Schatzi Bar at the foot of the main home run.
The large and rustic Kuhstall at the Sporthotel Silvretta receives rave reviews (“best apres-ski in Ischgl” and “fantastic atmosphere”). Across the road is Feuer & Eis, which has a DJ. Meanwhile, the two-storey Trofana Alm next to the five-star Hotel Trofana Royal, is full to bursting almost every evening before dinner and spectacularly good-natured.
There’s also the Sonne where there’s often live music and for country and western, it’s the Buffalo in the Hotel Grillam. Other popular places throughout the evening include the Allegra American Bar in the hotel Tscla, the Guxa cocktail bar and Niki’s Stadl in the Piz Buin hotel; there are many more. The three discothèques are the Club Après in the Hotel Central, Feuer and Eis (Fire and Ice) and Madlein Wunderbar.
