“Ischgl has some of the best cover of any non-glacial resort in Austria at the moment,” said one of the editors of digital ski publication WeLove2Ski, who chose Ischgl for his family Christmas break.

“Perfect packed snow and not a pebble or a patch in sight. All valley runs open with good cover. And we’ve had a 5-10cm top up, too. Ischgl pistes are perfect.”

The ski hub of Idalp has a 40cm snow base and the resort’s 1100 snow cannons and skilled grooming are keeping the pistes in great shape.

Ischgl TV shows skiers and boarders enjoying the conditions today .

Snowboard Guide rating 9 out of 10 “Ischgl has plenty of good wide intermediate slopes, and hidden off-piste stashes. A super fast lift system, a season that lasts until May, great terrain park, and the most full on apres in the Alps, completes the package.”
