Ischgl Things to Do

  • Simply go skiing!!!

    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 ;-)

  • How "fur" are you?

    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 :)

  • Walk your dog at 2000m

    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 :))

    Sometimes , If you are lucky ,you will get to see the real locals - the people that remember Ischgl before tourism came in. Go early in the morning in the tiny side streets ,you might have the chance to spot a local farmer bringing his milk to the hotel or guesthouse nearby.

Ischgl Warnings and Dangers

Of course Ischgl is here one more time exeptionnal - "my mountain - my rules" , so they just put a shield where the entrance for ski teachers is, so nobody gets...

  • "Mr.Popular" vs "I wanna be Ischglerin"

    Two phenomenons here >1. The local guys working hard on being "Mr.Popular" in what concerns the girls. Their tactic to impress is by drinking loads of alcohol and most of the time they end up much too drunk to be good for anything. 2. The second phenomenon is the incoming females,that are trying to blend in by speaking a heavy local dialect with...

  • Don't drink and drive...

    Surprising sign on the Höllspitzbahn... it saying that if you are drunk you will be not allow to take this chairlift... It is a good idea for your own safety and especially for the safety of others... Slopes are quite steep and you need all your balance to keep up on your skis. So don't stay too long at the ski bar if you need your skis to go back...
