Excellent modern Austrian m/Swiss resort for all levels. Heated chair lifts and cable cars and moving walk ways in the resort. The only issue was with the skischule Ischgl who didn’t honour our 16 year olds last day 3 hour lesson. This was really disappointing.
Apres Ski: 3/5
Ischgl is like St Anton but on steroids. The skiing and lift system are very impressive, didn't stand in a queue at all. Really big ski area, lots of off piste and great on mountain restaurants. Apres was wild and would go back at the drop of a hat.
