€ 0.22 per kilometre

Clocking in at €52 for a day ticket (as of February 2017), Ischgl is not one of the cheapest ski areas in the Alps. However, nobody can claim that you don’t get much for your money here either. With no less than 238 immaculately groomed kilometres of runs to explore, the ticket price breaks down at a very affordable € 0.22 per kilometre. In the Alps overall, the current average kilometre price is around € 0.96 per kilometre. Give this average, it would be disingenuous for anyone to claim that the ski pass in Ischgl is too expensive.

Ski lodges relatively pricy

The prices for food and drink in the ski area are certainly more expensive than the ski ticket comparatively speaking. The pricing of typical dishes like Spaghetti Bolognese or a 500 ml ‘Apfelschorle’ were both substantially higher than elsewhere, e.g. in Zillertal or Salzburger Land. Ischgl is widely seen as one of the more exclusive ski areas and this special atmosphere also appears to have its price.

The price/performance ratio is okay. However, Ischgl is definitely not for the small purse. The accommodations and restaurants often have a considerable price. The lift ticket is justified.

If I compare the mileage on a beautiful day with the Feldberg in the Black Forest, the day ticket in Ischgl would not have to cost 53 but 250 euros.

In general, it is to be said that everything is very expensive in Ischgl. But if you want to spend a few relaxing days here, you have to fill in your wallet properly. This is the only way to make I... Read complete review

The Skipass price is not the cheapest, but compared to the ski resort offer one of the cheapest.who lives in Ischgl/Mathon gets the VIP skipass special price.
