Top-notch signposting and grooming

After sending our team on five test trips to Ischgl, we can offer a very positive review of the service range offered in the ski area. Although 90% of the ski area is higher than the 2,000m mark, Ischgl leaves nothing to chance when it comes to snow. Over 970 lances and over 140 snow cannons are able to cover over 90% of the ski area, ensuring perfectly groomed runs in Ischgl even during winters with little snow. In addition Ischgl has upgraded the snowmaking system with 40 of the latest models of propeller machines for the start of the winter season 2016/17. 36 trail groomers also ensure immaculate corduroy every morning for early birds. Grooming takes place from operation shutdown until midnight and then again in the morning hours. If snowfall is forecast, grooming work starts at 5 am. On our test trips we have enjoyed great on-piste conditions, even at 3 pm there was no reason for complaint. Just the valley runs can get icy and difficult to ski on in the afternoon.

Exemplary ski run signage system

We were also impressed by the guidance on the mountain. The most important sub-areas and lifts are all signposted at all important intersections, valley stations and mountain tops, making it easy to find your bearings across this ski area. There also is a trail map available at each location, which significantly improves orientation in the ski area. 

(Almost) completely state-of-the-art lifts

It should not come as a surprise that the lift infrastructure in Ischgl and Samnaun is also top notch. Large gondola lifts offer a rapid link up to Silvretta Arena from the base stations in Ischgl and Samnaun. In 2014, the Pardatschgratbahn, another highly efficient gondola lift, was also established as an entry point to the ski area, meaning there are little or no queues during peak periods in Ischgl. Since 2016 the 8-seater-chairlift Flimjoch optimises the vital link to the Idalp-Alp Trida axis.  

New parking garage in the centre of Ischgl

Aside from the large car parks outside of Ischgl by the Silvrettabahn, guests have also been able to use the fee-paying parking garage in the centre of Ischgl since 2013 (€7 per day as of February 2017). The “Parking Lounge” is a god-send on wet and cold days here.

Ischgl is a large, versatile and modern ski resort. Unfortunately, almost all pistes were already derided in the morning and difficult to ride through snow piles or humps. I wonder if the pistes wi... Read complete review

Service is a major priority in Ischgl. The whole arena has the feeling that everything is well managed and organized. Whether on the slopes or in various shops. The Offer/service   is coherent, thoughtful and stringent. Everyone is in a good mood – you feel welcome in Ischgl.

In the ski resort there are regular piste signposts. The lifts are the main cable cars and chair lifts with weather guards, some with seat heating. There are also tow lifts. Ski and ski rental is a... Read complete review
