Ski area Silvretta Arena

With the "VIP-Skipass" a wide expanse of 239 km of piste (additionally 15 km ski routes) and 40 lifts in total opens up to skiers and boarders, with an unbelievable altitude of up to 2,872 m. Due to the high location and the modern snow-making systems, snow is guaranteed here from November until May.

The interconnection of the ski areas extend over two countries, from Ischgl in Austria to the Swiss ski area Samnaun, and is therefore on the largest ski terrain in Austria. The longest piste is named "Eleven" and is actually 11 km long, starting at the peak of the Greitspitze an leads right down to the centre of the resort. The challenging piste "14a" offers a 70% decline which is rather something for the more experienced skiers looking for a rush of Adrenaline. Many deep powder snow areas and mogul pistes will let the experienced sports fans' hearts beat faster. The easy pistes around the Idalp are great for beginners who want an easy start to their skiing experience. For boarders the area around Ischgl is also a highlight, the most popular place to be is the half-pipe at the Idjoch chair lift.

Trend and lifestyle play a big role also on the piste, which can also be seen in the largest connected freestyle park "PlayStation(c) Vita Ischgl Snowpark" just above the Idalp. If it starts getting too full there, just ski across the border and enjoy skiing in Switzerland. But it is wise to stick to the toll rules: skiing toll police tend to have an eye for backpacks full of toll-free shopping!

A special attraction in the ski area is the "Ischgl SkyFly", a zipline that hangs 50 m above the ground and allows you to "fly" down into the valley. Thanks to the integrated ski transport, this method proves to be a successful alternative to the valley run. Additionally new is the 8-person "Idalp" chair lift, of which heads up to the Flimjoch, and an improved piste guidance system.

During the 18/19 winter season, the old "Gampenbahn" was removed and replaced by a new 6-seater chairlift. The new lift has a height difference of 900 m, a new world record for a lift of this type. The Pardatschgrat tri-cable ropeway travels from the eastern town centre up to the Pardatschgrat ridge and is therefore a perfect connection to the Idalp. It covers 1,251 metres in height - this is the largest difference in height in the world that a tri-cable ropeway can overcome. The "Piz Val Gronda" reversible aerial tramway, on the other hand, which opens up the terrain in the Fimba Valley, is of particular interest to freeriders. A 3 km long red slope, but above all some unknown deep snow slopes. You can plunge into powder fun directly from the mountain station - a must at the freeride hotspot Ischgl.

Après ski Ischgl

Ischgl is known as the Mecca of après ski and may stand up to any world metropolis with it's lively parties and night-life. Many cosy mountain huts, bars and restaurants as well as discos invite you in to toast to a successful day on the slopes. A highlight is the lively après ski party every day in the famous "Kuhstall". You'll also find a great party in the "Trofana-Alm" and "Niki's Stadl". Considerably quieter but no less enjoyable are the friendly cafés, where you can meet to enjoy a delicious hot chocolate or coffee. Worthy of mention among the Ischgl discos is the Madlein-Pacha, which regularly offers a great show programme. The crowning event of all shows is the annual open air concert (on 1st May) on the Idalp, where past performers include such superstars as Tina Turner, Elton John, Bon Jovi, Sting, Pink and Bob Dylan.

Additionally, various events take place in the Silvretta Center including openings and concerts, theatre and cinema performances. A unique experience can be had on the 7 km long toboggan run with an altitude difference of 950 m.

Those looking for peace and relaxation after an exciting day on the piste will strike gold in the pool centre with sauna village, solarium and massages.

Peculiar and controversal: the nightly ban of ski boots in Ischgl! In case you are out and about in Ischgl at night make sure you are not wearing ski boots. From 20:00 in the evening to 6:00 in the morning it is forbidden to walk around in ski boots. The is supposed to limit noise disturbance and to evade dangerous situations. A breach of the rules can lead to considerable fines. Reactions to the restriction are very different and reach from agreement to lack of understanding.

Snowpark: Ischgl Snowpark Ischgl

The longest snow park in the Alps is probably the "Playstation® Vita Ischgl Snowpark". It can be reached via three different chair lifts: the Velill lift, the Filmjoch lift, and the Idjoch lift. The park is made up of 3 different zones, which can be found in 2 areas, the upper Velil area and the lower Idalp area.

In the beginner park, those new to freestyling can get to know the sport. The Public park offers numerous rails, kickers, and other obstacles for everyone, while the Kingsize park, which comprises the longest pro line in Europe, is great for freestyle specialists. 30 jib and slide elements with the most recent SPC tubes, classic rails and boxes, over 20 kickers (6 to 20 m), two corners, a tube spine, and a public bag jump will offer you great opportunities to use your creativity and they leave nothing to be desired. Furthermore, there is a fun cross line with wave runs and 14 banked turns. Additionally, two restaurants can be found in close proximity and from their terraces it is possible to enjoy a great view of the funpark.

Those who still want more, can make a trip to Switzerland, where the "Obstacle Park Samnaun", located west of the Alp Trider lift, awaits you. It is an obstacle park, which especially action fans and creative athletes will enjoy. All in all, the Silvretta Arena is a true freestyle eldorado and it is definitely worth a visit!
