Were in Ischgl v. 7 2009 as well as 7th of 2008. Heavy snowfall combined with degrees of mining meant that this year there were very unspoilt areas to go in. Easy offpiste for all categories.

No real queues and many dawns when it was snowing. Perfect skiing in every way.

Worse service and poor food on the Swiss side.

Was in Ischgl v.9 2008

Stayed in Kappl about 7km from Ischgl and got to go ski bus. Been in several resorts in Austria but never agreed that the ski bus station was so bad, the buses usually went every 45 minutes.

skiing
But the sidewalk was top but there were some dangerous narrow transport distances and overrated Talabfahrt. For those who like to carve on broad slopes there are not so many to choose from, recommending pistons 22-23.

Modern lifts and short lifts!

A plus is the proximity to Switzerland and tax-free shopping in the small village of Samnaun. Here you will find everything from cheap spirits to luxury bells at low cost!

Nightlife
After skiing the summit was already beginning to rise at 14:00 and then when the lifts closed the village was filled.
It found many good nightclubs but we, 18, thought the mean age was usually quite high. Most were over 30 years. At first we thought we were wrong but it turned out that it was everywhere. There were well some in our age but they were few. May be because the prices in general in Iscgl are high.

We had a super week with a radiant sun!
+ Good skiing
+ After skiing
+ Samnaun

- Expensive, lift card 7 days 2300kr !!!
- the ski buses

Were in Ischgl week 7 2008 for the first time. The village feels very strange as it is both very modern and old fashioned.

It feels very different to go for a lift to get to the cabin, for example.

The skiing was good with varying slopes at the heights which make it possible to go on a ride.

Off-piste opportunities are OK, but it's just that it's overlooked everywhere.

There are some bottlenecks that make people bump up, but actually there are no queues you need to care about.

The strangest thing is that there are now so many Russian ski tourists in Ischgl that they sign Russian in the lifts.

The Russians, however, are not alone, you meet Danes, Dutch, Belgians, English, Poles, Balts and other nationalities in large numbers.

We Swedes are a small minority of about 150 people a week in Ischgl
about 12,000.

A hill they brag about is pistol 80 to Samnaun which is terribly overrated. Clean the frame transport.

Pist 41 is also nothing to have, uphill at the end.

The backs of Vesil and Höllenkar are best in the morning when people are more in the sun-drenched parts above the Fimba-Bahn.

The transports down to the village are also no further as it becomes very crowded when everyone is going home in the afternoon.

Feel free to use Pist 5 or 7 to get the most out of the transport.

Was there v.4 08
ischgel is a ski resort I think you should visit!
Lift systems can not be better no transport stretches brand new lifts,
nice backs, good off piste, good with resturants. Tip! go down on the Swiss side and ride in Samnau. It's a bit of fun that they have cows in the middle of the city + that they can not find a trash all over Austria!

Visited Ischgl during V 6 2007 and have to say that it is the absolute best ski resort I have visited!

The system is almost infinite and the capabilities of the state-of-the-art lift system are impressive (have visited several European ski resorts earlier). New before 2008 is that they also replace "Fimbabahn" with an eight-seat cabin with heated seats and further expand capacity. Classy!
The quality of the slopes is very high throughout the system, including Saumanan (Swiss side) and also the variation is cruel, beautiful pudding can be found in many places just outside the piste.

To have a sunny afternoon test the Palinkopf shoulder, all the way down to the valley in the Saumanan tax-free zone, while watching the backpack with some great affordable whiskey bottles before the evening. Then take the little incredible double-decked cabin back up on the top, a cool feeling!

It is widely said that Ischgl is an expensive ski resort and YES it is not the cheapest in Austria. But it is also not fair to call Ischgl expensive. If you have lunch on the Austrian side of the system, you save a lot, and if you only order Champangen every other day on after skin, you will have a traditional alprese budget; ) The food down in Ischgl is very affordable and of the other Tyrolean price picture.

Skiing -5- World Class!

Lift system -5- Very high class!

After-ski -5- High class, German slope mixed with fried Champagne slices, at least awesome !!

Food -4- Cruel Schnitzel and Knödeln, like in Tyrol!

The village -5- Cozy, good range of cheaper / more expensive restaurants, mixed with Gucci and Dior shops!

TOTAL -5- Does not actually come to ANYWhat I miss here!

In addition to this we had, despite the early season, 4 wonderful sunny days, 1 snow day filling the powder and 2 sunny days on it, a memory for life!

Strong recommendation from me!

Ischgl is a really good ski resort. Large lift system with many good slopes, one could cushion just outside the pitch. The lifts were state of the art and there were no queues. The food was really good distinctive spaghetti and meatballs. Nor was it expensive.

Incredibly good place. Be here 2004 and have some of my absolute best skiing memories from here. Has heard rumors that a link will be built between St. Anton and Ischgl, and suddenly we suddenly have a really interesting place!

Positively:
- high ridge, easily accessible off-piste
- Nice city,
- Modern lift system, no queues available!
- jäääättestort piste system. The pistemap does not make the system justice!
- nice restaurants in the slopes
- fun après ski
- skiing right down the city center

negative:
- something overrepresented by Germans, so all entertainment gets on their premises (read: German house songs with a touch of "ompa-ompa" - can be damn boring after a while.
- expensive!

I will gladly return!

Ischgl offers not only nice skiing but also the best afterskin you can imagine. I did not really understand how we hurried to dance until 02:00 and then get up at 07:00 every morning without falling apart. It must have been the wonderful ride that kept us awake the week out. The price of drinking in the pubs did not come with my travel budget at all. I say like many others that the food and drink were very expensive on the slopes but we made sure we bought our food bag in See (a small town outside Ischgl) where our hotel was also.

We were there during Easter, so the weather could not be complained! It was sunny all the time, which became a bit awkward in the afternoon as the nose burnt and the snow became very heavy and wet. But we were looking forward to going in the morning when the slopes were new and the beginners were still sleeping.

Actually, my first 360 was here so I have several nice memories from this beautiful ski resort in Austria.

Best of all, and their park was huge. lovely weather.
The park had hope in all categories as well as rails and boxes.
never steered to the elevator sometimes the Germans came with their extreme queue technology.
there was nothing bad about this.

I was in Ischgl week 8. 2006 and I've never been to anything funeral. Not enough that we had perfect weather forever, the atmosphere in the village was so great. All Austrians are really pearls, at least those I've met.

In the past I have been to Saalbach and also the place was good but Ischgl actually hits it. As for the slopes, I do not know what can beat Ischgl. It may be because you go on such a high where you find some benchmarks but everything was so big and the offer was so good! I did not stand more than 10 minutes in the elevator queue that week. Some days you could just go straight on to the treadmill and sit in the chairlift. If you did not have a company like someone, you never saw people twice a day.

The village was incredibly cozy and the best thing was maybe you could hardly see any cars or buses. Amazingly smart of them to make the tunnel with treadmills. Himla easy for us who lived on the other side of the village! :)

I'll ALWAYS remember Ischgl's journey, because everything was so cool that week, everything got so fucking perfect!

The only drawback was that it was "pretty" animal-friendly ....: /

To Ischgl, you must only go if you have not been there! I'm going to return next year!
