Skiing in one of the best resorts of the alps
The International Ski Arena Samnaun-Ischgl is one of the biggest skiing areas in the Alps.
Some part of the area is on swiss ground some on austrian. So while skiing you cross the border several times.
Totaly 42 modern lifts (Mostly chairlits with 4, 6 or 8 seats) take you up to the pistes very quick. Up to now the longes time i've ever waited was about 10 minutes, normaly its max 2-3 minutes.
The pistes are prepared very good. Where it is necessary they make their own snow with snow canons (specialy on the austrian side). There are pistes for every skier, from the easy blue ones up to some very spectacular and very steep black runs. There are a few ski-routes too wich are secured against avelanches but are not prepared. Next the obvious skiing gear you need to have your passport or ID with you as you ski in switzerland and austria and cross the border. Normaly there are no controls, but sometimes they do punctual checks.
