Going to Ischgl was like a dream come true.
I've travelled the world in search of the perfect combination of good long fresh powder runs, clear blue skies, and pleasant surroundings.
Ischgl is it.
The holiday couldnt have gone better.
One of the main things I liked about Ischgl is that it isnt mainstream touristy like St Anton and Kitzbuhel and a few other famous resorts. So there are hardly any annoying drunk Brits. The majority of tourists are Germans, Dutch and a few Russians. Germans are always great, Dutch are better, and Russians just keep to themselves.
The resort is MASSIVE. In 2 weeks I still didnt do every run. The mountain straddles the Swiss border and you are actually meant to carry your passport with you while riding.
The town itself is very cute and tightly centred. The prices are reasonable for food and you can easily get a meal for E10. There is a wellness spa which is acceptable but by no means a good example of an Austrian spa.
Ischgl comes alive from about 4pm when the Apre Ski crowds start to warm up. It's a sight to behold and you simply have to get into it. Anything goes - there are no rules. I witnessed a girl with two guys strip off in the middle of a dance floor and then straddle a dance pole. Countless other people were dancing on tables and flying around the room. It's awesomely entertaining if you can put up with the terribly infectious and repetitive music, the penetrating smoke and the squeezing crowd.
Anyway enough said.
Please dont visit Ischgl.
Leave it just for me!
