In 1961 the development of the Silvretta Arena dates back to 7th October at that time the company was entered in the register of companies by its 73 founding shareholders.
Ischgl is located on the Austrian side of one of the world’s largest ski areas.
Three ropeways give access to the ski area from the village: the Pardatschgratbahn, the Fimbabahn & the Silvrettabahn. Only the Fimbabahn and the Silvrettabahn have middle stations.
Many of the lifts converge at Idalp, where there is a restaurant.
The area above Idalp offers wide, easy pistes and a snow park.
Other parts of the Ischgl area, towards Höllboden and Paznauner Thaya, offer many red runs and some more challenging blacks.
The steepest run in the resort is a black run with a gradient of 70%, located in the Höllboden bowl, and accessed by the “Lange Wand” chair lift.
Paznauner Thaya offers many red runs suitable for intermediate-level skiers.
