Whilst there hasn’t been a great deal of snow in recent weeks, what there was offered the lucky ones on the slopes some great tracks off-piste. It needs to be said as well that the ski service shops in the region will be smiling after the weekend – from the vantage point of numerous chair lifts it was common to hear the traumatic sound of ski-on-rock. I completely annihilated a ski in Ischgl some years ago – the rocks there are utterly remorseless.
We didn’t stay for the season opening concert featuring Amy Macdonald – Ischgl has a tendency to trap those walking the streets after dark and do terrible things to their immune systems -since a busy week lies ahead we took the escape route after the skiing. If you are interested in skiing some of the very best terrain in the Alps and feel that you can handle the pace off the slopes then Ischgl is a must ski resort.
