Ischgl, Austria.

It seems that the Ischgl Tourism Board has a lot of biking and hiking in summer. There surely seems to be a lot doesn't there? For a vital and true story
please go to...

They have a complete(and we do mean complete) stroy on the winter and summer goings on in Ischgl in Tirol. It seems that Ischgl is first and foremeost a winter resort and we all know what that means. But Ischgl is also a summer resort and here is the link to see what's happening in summer...


 

 

The Silvretta mountain range, in the Austrian Tirol's Paznaun valley is a fantastic ski area that has really never made it to the International "who's who" list of European ski resorts. It is, still, extremely popular with knowledgeable European skier. The area boasts not only a varied ski terrain, but a magical bit of scenery combined with a skiable height of just under 3,000 meters. high enough to offer good snow except in real drought conditions. The Paznaun is reached via Innsbruck if you are coming by car from the Munich area, and Landeck if from St. Moritz area. Alternatively via the Arlberg pass/tunnel, should you be crossing in from other parts of Switzerland. To cross here look for the Feldkirch border crossing.

The ski area, and the major ski pass consists of the villages of Ischgl, Galtur and the Swiss village of Samnaun on the other side of the mountain. You can buy a collective ski pass that covers 200 skiable kms. serviced by more than 60 lifts. Or individual passes for the towns mentioned above. There are several smaller entries in this circus, but for purposes of this story lets stick to the main performers shall we? As the headline on the opposite page suggests, these are Galtur and Ischgl. The skiing here is a well kept international secret, with an excellent selection of both diverse and extensive skiing that should please even the pickiest punter.

Ischgl is the first of the resorts you see as you come into the valley. At 1400 M above sea level, this is the biggest of the Austrian resorts in the region with 35 of the total ski lifts under its direct umbrella. The next major player along the valley floor is Galtur. This is the highest village at 1584 meters. It has plenty of uphill transportation both in its immediate vicinity, and above the Kopssee just a few lifts away. There are several smaller villages dotted both along and above the valley, all united on the bigger Silvretta ski pass. A look at the trail map pictured here should put you in the picture. And do not forget dear reader, this region allows you skiing forays into Switzerland too.

Each village has its own ski school also its own lift system, but each has equal access to the main stream as it were.  The valley that runs along the silvretta ski region is called the Paznauntal so do not be confused if you hear someone say they are planning at a trip there. They are one and the same regions.

This whole Silvretta area is one that is underplayed by the International recreational skiing circuit. You miss it at your peril. Munich and Zurich are good airports. If you can get a flight into Innsbruck you're even closer.
