    "Entrance for ski teachers ONLY"

    by desert_princess Written Aug 25, 2009

    In most of the ski schools I've worked this was a big issue. Should we go in front of the queue to be at our worplace in time, or was it too obvious and a bad image for the ski school. 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 confused :)))

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

    by desert_princess Written Apr 21, 2009

    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 more or less success.

    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 to the valley, once down see my Après ski tip to continue the fiesta...

    Drink in moderation as usual!!!

    Talabfahrt - the Village run

    Talabfahrt

    The red run to the village gets stupidly crouded around 16h ,when all the wannabe skiers decide to use their last chance to demonstrate their skills.
    Honestly said - avoid it if possible . For several reasons : first of all at the end of the day the slope is all ice and moguls, second - people trying to ski all around you could be dangerous. They have the gift of falling right in front of you or right into you. Both dangerous situations. As they are not in control , they slide on ice for the next 20 meters leaving skis, poles , hats and goggles all over the place.how convenient. you have to go and pick all for them. And last but not least - the most injuries happen at the end of the day , when your adrenaline keeps you from estimating realistically that your muscles need a rest after a whole day of overload.

    Make sure you know where you are going...

    Beware !! You are going to the place where the party is going on 24h a day. So if you are not used to the lifestyle , it might be a good idea to pick another place for your holiday....
    If you don't know after awhile where your room is , and are sleeping in the hotel lobby , you have a little problem, buddy.....not to mention that the next day when you wake up around noon, you will be good for nothing , and you have missed the day for skiing.....And it was probably a great sunny day with some new snow.....but you can't have it all ,right?
    Like this guy that came today in the ski school at 11h , instead of 9:30 when he was has having his lesson....hahahaaha....well it's his loss....

    Ski in Control

    Ski in Control

    Unfortunately quite a common sight - injured tourists . The reason ? if you ask me - too many people ski way too fast for their abilities. Go back to reading the 10 FIS rules !!!
    For snowboard - wear as much protection as you can get. The most important are helmet , wrist and knee protectors.

    Please if the weather forcast says "Snow Storm" save yourself the bothering of going up in the mountain only because you paid for a ski pass. In the best case you could get lost because of the fog and low visibility ....in the worse.....u wanna know?

    Lock your skis / snowboard

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beware ,Skis and boards get stolen on a regular basis in Ischgl , so If you want to find your gear where you left it when you go Apres ski ,for example it's a good idea to buy a locker. I am not sure this is a 100% guarantee ,but at least it will cause some difficulties to the dudes....

    In case you got injured on the slopes (and I hope you won't) there is a well organised first aid that will transport you to the doctor. To be continued.
