The skiing area of Ischgl, a real paradise for winter athletes, extends to Samnaun in Switzerland.
The Silvretta Arena, which unites the Ischgl Skiing Area in North Tyrol and the Swiss Samnaun Skiing Area, is not only snow sure, but also offers perfect conditions for skiing, as snowmaking equipment is rated among the best worldwide. Furthermore, the Silvretta Arena has repeatedly been honoured for its efforts to keep the environment healthy and intact.
Ischgl boasts 224 km of ski slopes, 15 km of ski routes and 45 state-of-the-art lift facilities. One of the longest slopes of Austria is the 11 km long Route Eleven from Mt. Greitspitz to the town centre of Ischgl, the steepest run is the black slope no. 14a with a 70% gradient. On the Idalp Mountain Pasture at 2,300 m a.s.l., however, where every year the famous "Top of the Mountain" concerts with stars such as Elton John are held, there's the beginners area.
The Silvretta Arena offers two Snow Parks, one of them is the Ischgl Snow Park powered by JEEP, one of the longest one in the Alps with the Vellil and Idalp areas.
