Ski, snowboard, and party at Ischgl-Samnaun ski area, a mecca for winter athletes. Take one of the three ropeways that lead from the village to the ski area 1,377 m (4,518 ft) above sea level. Visit a large restaurant with viewing terrace at Idalp, the main central point on the mountain. The area above it offers wide, easy runs and a challenging snow park. The steepest piste in the entire resort is in the Höllboden bowl with a gradient of 70 percent. You can access the run with the ultra-modern Lange Wand chair lift. Famous for its lively parties and boisterous nightlife, Ischgl has hosted the concerts of such international stars as Bob Dylan, Tina Turner, Beyonce, and Katy Perry.

  • First time skiing in Swiss. Honestly there are better resorts and reasonable ones. Here is more or less show up, who and who cannot afford it. 
  • The Ischgl-Samnaun skiing area is suitable for all levels of skiers. There are enough slopes of all difficulty levels. Only the relatively long lifetimes in Ischgl could be improved. If it is above but arrived in the ski area the waiting times are very low.

  • The ski area is so large, having diversion as a very good skier 3 days. You can leave all the lifts on a day, but not quite enough for all the ski runs! And there really is something for everyone. By the almost complete coverage by snow cannons can go always well from December to may. The ski area is vulnerable only in strong winds. Then it can happen that you have to stay on his side. So either in Samnaun or in Ischgl. The local ski area have a size from small to huge. Whether star meal, or snack, there is something for everyone. I drive in the area for 30 years and got with the modernization of the lifts. There was hardly a year in which not least a lift was added or renewed. Thus, there is actually no more waiting. Man but also not really comes to the puffing out, it was within promoted by a few minutes in back upwards. The arena no longer has the charm of some old-fashioned Swiss, Italian, or French ski resort, but it can't neatly kilometers on the day! For the night, I would recommend: party people and Apresskifans to Ischgl. The rest to Samnaun. The Swiss side has good Apresski bars including 2 nightclubs and 1-2, but since what happened only during the high season. That's why I prefer the scenic nicer and quieter side of Samnaun.
