About this trip:

A super ski area, but this trip is really about the end of ski year party.  The annual “Frulingsschneefest” is a week-long ‘happening’ highlighted by the Top of the Mountain Concert, this time 30 April, 2018!


Skiing in Ischgl

  • Snow-assured from the end of November until the start of May
  • An ambitious range of pistes on offer – for every ability level
  • Huge fun parks such as the Ischgl Snowpark
  • Hardly any waiting times thanks to the state-of-the-art lift and cable car systems
  • Open-air concerts with global stars
  • GPS positions on the piste map for iPhone and Android


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
beginner’s terrain which has wide ski pistes, through to challenging steep slopes, everything is on offer. Speedy, in comfort and almost without any waiting around – thanks to facilities which are equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
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
  • 515 hectares piste surface area
  • 93,000 people – the total conveyance capacity per hour 1100 snow machines
  • Longest piste: 11 km


Sunny skiing

Sunny skiing in Ischgl means skiing until 1 May 2017 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.

Ischgl Aprés Ski


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.
