Skiing and snowboarding in Ischgl
The popularity of Ischgl is built on solid foundations – the Ischgl ski area. It is big, of impressive height, has a huge lift system and continues to grow. There is a big learning area around the mid station at Idalp and from here the ski lifts fan out across a massive area. Idalp also has numerous lockers to leave equipment for those downloading on the lift, and a helicopter and medic station to give a bit of comfort to those using the huge, neighbouring pipe and park. Many of the runs away from Idalp are intermediate or difficult but it is the off-piste that Ischgl is famous for and as far as you can see, vast bowls await the next dump of snow.
