Where to spend a luxury winter holiday? Ischgl - a top ski resort

More than 200 km of ski tracks

Ischgl (1,377 m above sea level) is a small village located in the middle of the Paznaun valley in Tyrol, near the Swiss border, and is known as one of the most luxury skiing areas in the Alps. It is about 660 km away from Prague, and there are more than 200 km of ski tracks and many freeride and aprés ski options. The Ischgl connection with the Swiss resort of Samnaun has created the Silvretta Arena, which features a total of 238 kilometers of slopes, the longest is a red-black eleven-kilometer downhill ski slope, the biggest challenge is the Pardatschgrad slope with an incredible 1,200-foot elevation of 1,6 kilometers.
