    The first settlers - picture from the museum archi
    1 more image

    The Silvretta cablecar museum located in the Dorftunnel is worth a visit . It tells the story of the valley from its first settlers and how it all began and evolved to become what you see in the present days.

    Open on wednesdays 16-19 H.

    "The first settlers
    From the glaciers of Silvretta, Samnaun and the Verwall group all the way to castle Wiesberg, at the valley entrance , on both sides of the Trisanna river spreads one of the most beautiful landscapes in the Alps - the high alpine valley Paznaun and its side valleys.
    The first settlers that came in the wildernis of the upper valley of Trisanna were Rhaeto-Romans and Walser. They came from Graubünden and were able, especially in the summer months, almost without obstacles start using the high alpine pastures in the side valleys. In the beginning they stayed only in summer, later they build their houses and stayed in the valley all year round. The Paznaun remained for centuries a valley of farmers, cattle and hunters. The mountain farmer families had a difficult life. They neddded to use every piece of cultivable land to survive.

    Palinkopf: black slopes area
    4 more images


    My favorite area was around the Greitspitz (2872m) and Palinkopf (2864) mountains as many black and red slopes are located there.

    This area is well served with efficient chairlifts, extensive snow making system and kilometers of well grommed pistes. Off piste is of course available if weather and safety conditions permitted ;-)

    Sportalm is the rich's favourite ski clothing brand. Why? because it has fur and crystals everywhere and it's damn expensive. Do I have to tell you the nationality of the lady? I can bet she's russian :)

    What is more logical to do than to walk your dog where people ski at 2000m in front of Idalp?
    It makes for sure a difference from everybody around carrying skis and poles and having this specific robocop pace when walking around with ski boots :))

    Cross the border...

    by Tripack Updated Mar 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Papier Bitte!!!


    The Silvretta Arena is lying on Austria and Switzerland. So do not forget your ID card... may be you could met customs officers on skis, even if the Austria-Swiss border is located at around 2800m asl. By the way, do not forget your credit card too... as Saumnau area is also a tax free zone.

    The trade with Tyrol was an important source of income for Saumnaun. In 1892, the Swiss Confederation gave it the status of duty-free area as there was no direct access road through Swiss territory to Samnaun and consequently the import of foodstuff to the valley was made more expensive by the imposed customs tax...

    So head to this $wi$$ shopping paradise to get perfumes, spirits, watches, jewellery, tobaccos and above all the finest Swiss chocolate ;-)

    Stupid girl, stupid girls, stupid girls
    Baby if I act like that, that guy will call me back
    What a paparazzi girl, I don't wanna be a stupid girl

    Go to Fred Segal, you'll find them there
    Laughing loud so all the little people stare
    Looking for a daddy to pay for the champagne
    (Drop a name)
    What happened to the dreams of a girl president
    She's dancing in the video next to 50 Cent
    They travel in packs of two or three
    With their itsy bitsy doggies and their teeny-weeny tees
    Where, oh where, have the smart people gone?
    Oh where, oh where could they be?

    Baby if I act like that, that guy will call me back
    What a paparazzi girl, I don't wanna be a stupid girl
    Baby if I act like that, flipping my blonde hair back
    Push up my bra like that, I don't wanna be a stupid girl

    (Break it down now)
    Disease's growing, it's epidemic
    I'm scared that there ain't a cure
    The world believes it and I'm going crazy
    I cannot take any more
    I'm so glad that I'll never fit in
    That will never be me
    Outcasts and girls with ambition
    That's what I wanna see
    Disasters all around

    World despaired
    Their only concern
    Will they **** up my hair

    [Interlude]
    Oh my god you guys, I totally had more that 300 calories

    Pretty would you **** me girl, silly as a lucky girl

    ....3 gondolas taking you from the village to the ski area.the trendiest - " Silveretta bahn" can accomodate up to 24 people in one cabin, the other two are for 4-"Pardatchgatbahn" and 6 persons- "Fimba Bahn" even if you are not skiing ,it's worth to go to the top just to enjoy the majestic view with all the mountain peaks as far as the sight goes.

    here we speak russian....

    "here we speak russian".says the sign on the rental ski shop at the bottom of the Pardatchgrat gondola. So far so good. The only thing is that it's written in the wrong alphabet - so how the hell you expect the russians to read it if it's in latin and not in Cyrilic?
    The thing is that Ischgl is invaded with russian tourists and most of them don't speak anything but their mother language.I don't want to be rude , but don't expect that Austrians will learn russian overnight .
