We were in Ischgl v2 2010 and were extremely positively surprised. It had not snowed really before we got there o during the week, it just came 10cm new snow, yet we went easily, good off-piste for 8 days! There are very open, nice areas between the slopes that do not seem to be raised at all ... I have previously been in Val Thorens, Val das, Badgastein and those resorts so Ischgl is a heightened if you do not want to waste expensive money on rental guide. Do not get out of control at all.
Around pistil 40 is on both sides cruel off-piste that stays fine even when the sun fights a while.
Most seem to be there to party and go skiing. There are definitely good after-ski places o nice nightclubs even if we did not fully utilize that offer.
From Ischgl there are ski buses to nearby Kappl, See o Galtur oxå. We drove one day at Kappl, oh there we found another wonderful off-piste o smaller people than in Ischgl. It's only going up to the top (good fall height, about 1500m) o then go down the shadow side, keep skiers left, so there's plenty of off-piste along the slopes.
I will probably go back to Ischgl!

Ischgl is a perfect place if you want to go a lot of skis, get away from places where Swedes are overpriced and if you like high pace all day!

I've been in Ischgl three times and it's my favorite place, what so ever! I have lived a little everywhere in the village and now last we stayed behind Fire and Ice, in the middle of the village! How greeted anyway!

The reason for a few Swedes is to get a travel company going there. It's really just STS that still goes there? Lion ended last year. In addition, Ischgl is privately owned. Everyone in the village owns a part of the system, so that's why it's so expensive. One is looking for an audience with a little more money, but there are plenty of families with children too. Especially Russian, Swiss, Dutch and English are well-traveled. Every ski resort owner has the same price, as soon as someone raises or drops, everyone else makes the same.

Höllenkar is drawn in the morning, several slopes untouched until half past ten there. Down Switzerland, you do not have to get too late when you just get to a lot of cockpit.

The Bäcta lunch is available at Alp Bella. Terrific good grilled chickens.
Otherwise you can try the great restuarant that is on top when coming from Samnaun, good Pasta carbonara!

And if you think it's expensive, you can always live in an apartment instead of a hotel, we always do that. There will be a lot of pasta but you can live with that. Pulling down prices quite quite anyway.

Trofana Alm has the best aftershine. For a further party at night, I prefer kuhstall!

Do not miss this place for james name! A sunny day in Ischgl is speechless!
Stanton is an hour away, go there one day if you want. But whatever you do, do not miss this place!

Were in Ischgl and went skiing a long weekend now in April. Large system without transport stretches, large areas and fast lifts without queue. Great place simply.

BUT, try to miss Hotel Garni Kistall. Friendliness can best be likened to Fawlty Towers and the owner Werner has about the same service feeling as Mr. Basil Fawlty ...
Just a tip

Sincerely
Johan

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!
