    Once upon a time ,in the year of 1961 , on the 18 of april 73 partners , mainly from Ischgl founded the Silveretta Seilbahn AG Ischgl. Using high loans to fund it,two years later in december 1963 the Silveretta cable car and the Idjoch Lift started running. Followed by the Hollbodenlift - the second drag lift that was built in 1966. In 1967 SilverettaSeilbahn bought their first snowcat. In March 1972 ,the Pardatchgratbahn was started as a second feeder lift. in 1972 Holltal and Palinkopf were developped and the Fimbabahn opened in 1976.
    in 1977 SilverettaSeilbahn AG took a 51 percent stake in the cable cars of Samnaun, enabling the poject to be financed : 1 cable car ,3 drag lifts 2 guest houses and the ski run.THese lifts started running in December 1978. In the next years ,all till the present moment,the lift facilities were expanded further, old ones being replaced annually by the latest technical transportation means. All this making today the SilverettaSeilbahnAG Austria's most technically advanced lift company. These investments have become possible only because the shareholders forewent the distribution of their dividents ever since the company was founded.

    ...privately owned first aid helicopters....

    Apparently a german doctor with an enterpreneur spirit ,build his own Emergency clinique somewhere in Montafon. He made a landing platform below Idalpe and bought helicopters to transport the severely injured. As lots of people are skiing at way too high speed for their abilities,u bet the helicopters are busy all day long. You see them fly here and there at least 4-5 times a day. And things must be really bad that you need to be transported by a helicopter.

    A Village tunnel , taking you from the pedestrian center of the town , opposite of Burger King to the bottom station of the "Fimba" and "Pardatchgrat"gondolas. Especially built for lazy tourists , so that they don't have to walk.

    Galt��r

    On our last day, the weather changed from the hot sunshine that we had enjoyed ever since we arrived at Ischgl to rain and cloud. However, we took the bus to Galtür where we visited The Alpinarium. The displays in it were mainly about the avalanche which killed 31 people in the village in February 1999, and the effect that it had on the community.

    When the rain eased off, we set off back to Ischgl, stopping off at...

    Ischgl Lido

    We spent a gloriously hot and sunny day here, swimming and sun-bathing. It is difficult to imagine a better setting for a swimming pool.

    There is also an indoor leisure pool in Ischgl where we spent our last afternoon, as it was then cloudy and wet outside!

    Bielerhöhe and the Silvretta Reservoir

    Silvretta Reservoir

    We took the bus up the winding road to Bielerhöhe, and spent a day walking round about two-thirds of the Silvretta reservoir, and then getting the boat that plies its way around it back to the starting point.

    There are very dramatic views up to the Vermunt Glacier and Piz Buin from the path.

    A Lake in the Valley

    Another day, we left the Silvretta/Fimba Cableway from Ischgl at the midway station, and walked along the Fimbabach Valley, which was very peaceful apart from the almost constant background drone of a helicopter which appeared to be dropping off materials to create new avalanche barriers on the side of the mountain way above us.
