Ischgl Ski, Snowboard & Summer Holidays

IschglIschgl (pronounced Ish-gull) is an extensive ski resort high in the Alps (4,592 feet), hard on the border with Switzerland, and is almost unknown by non-Europeans.

The town itself is a small Alpine resort built on a knoll in a deep valley, easily walkable from one end to the other, thanks to elevators and short-cut tunnels. No high-rise construction seriously mars the small village effect. The ski area is far above and out of sight from the road, the base stations and the town. Eleven smaller hamlets complete the region, including Samnaun, Kappl and Galtur.
