#SKI #ISCHGL #Austria

An Eldorado for alpine skiers

In a country known for its après ski Ischgl is a winter Ibiza. However this ski resort is no one-trick pony, Ischgl im Paznaun, in addition to Galtür, Kappl and See, is an Eldorado for skiing enthusiasts. There are top of the range cable car facilities and fabulous pistes, with the Ischgl/Samnaun Silvretta Arena being voted one of the top ten locations for Alpine skiing out of 176 resorts. The resorts largest vertical drop is 1400 meters and the longest run a whopping 210 kilometres!

Ischgl is also very big on boarding and is proud to be considered one of the pioneers of the art and was one of the first resorts in Europe to realise the potential and popularity of this sport. Snowboarders will find one of the best terrain parks in Europe here, aptly named, "Boarders Paradise" with four areas and 30 obstacles. There are nursery slopes suitable for boarder beginners, and the lifts are boarder friendly, with the wide-open powder fields a snowboarders heaven after fresh snowfall. Ischgl's family-friendly slopes are perfect for the majority of skiers, while the grooming and snow-making are in a league of their own. Full lift and piste integration with neighbouring Samnaun over the border in Switzerland make the skiing truly extensive, and after a big fall of fresh snow, there's off piste skiing in every direction. Only tough on-piste challenges are missing.

#ski #Innsbruck

Fantastic skiing and an exceptional cultural experience awaits you in Innsbruck

Chosen as the site of the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympic Games, Innsbruck considers skiing part of its city's life, and is one of the few resorts in Europe with a snow guarantee. Free buses shuttle you from downtown to the nearby ski areas. Innsbruck's largest vertical drop is a whopping 2175 meters and top elevation 3210 meters! With 290 kilometers of slopes you will defiantly not run out of space to ski! Among them Igls and Mutters will appeal to the novice and intermediate skiers with long, wide-open trails; Patscherkofel at 7,490 feet and Hafelekar, reached by a series of lifts at the edge of town will offer steep, challenging runs for the more advanced skiers.

There are also several snowboard parks in the area including one at Axamer Lizum with half-pipes and natural jumps and one at the Stubai Glacier with a half-pipe, jumps, and a snowboard racecourse. Over 800 years old, this Tyrolian capital displays its historic treasures for all to see. A walk through its streets will take you by the famous Golden Roof, the Ambras Castle, imperial palaces, theatres, opera houses, museums, and much more. Combined with the spectacular natural beauty surrounding it, Innsbruck is hard to beat.

#SKI #Soldeu 

Soldeu has now joined forces with Pasa de la Casa to give you the largest expanse of ski terrain in the Pyrenees.

Soldeu is a lively and friendly village very popular with skiers and snowboarders for its relaxed ambiance and great après-ski. For its size, Soldeu is incredibly well served with thriving bars, clubs and restaurants as well as great facilities, both on and off the slopes. The resort spreads out over 4 kilometres in 4 distinct areas, which are El Tarter, Incles, Bordes d'Envalira and Soldeu village itself. All of these ski areas are connected by a regular bus service and access to the slopes is by modern gondola lifts from either Soldeu village or El Tarter. In the 2003-2004 ski season the two leading Pyreneen ski resorts, Pasa de la Casa - Grau Roig and Soldeu El Tarter, took advantage of their geographical proximity, to give birth to a ski area of European proportions - GrandValira. With this greatly enhanced ski terrain and lift system options for intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders has doubled.

The snow record is excellent, with the majority of the skiing taking place above 2000 metres. Soldeu has a vertical drop of 850 meters and the total length of the slopes is 92 kilometers. The resort has also invested heavily in snow cannons, so as soon as it's cold enough the snow making begins, ensuring an excellent base is guaranteed for ski holiday in Soldeu. You will also find the ski school in Soldeu is excellent, with over 70% of the instructors speaking English as their first language, and an ideal place to have a lot of fun while learning to handle the pistes.

#SKI #PasdelaCasa

Predominantly French influenced Pas de la Casa is Andorra's largest ski resort

Pas de la Casa is a lively purpose-built resort situated on the French border at the foot of the largest, most extensive ski area in Andorra. It has an efficient modern lift system enhanced by an excellent snow record, with good conditions usually lasting well into April. Even before the link with Soldeu, Pas de la Casa had the biggest ski area and highest lift-served terrain in Andorra. However, with the two resorts combined and referred to as GranVilara there are 192 kilometres of pistes, which is about the same as some of the big-name Alpine resorts such as Kitzbühel, Wengen-Grindelwald and Les Deux Alpes. The longest run at the resort is 20 kilometres with a 700 meter vertical drop. 

The Font Negre surface lift above Pas de la Casa has been replaced by a six pack, which now extends up towards the top of the Pic Blanc ridge. Two of the three Llac del Cubill surface lifts to the Grau Roig area from the Encamp side have also been upgraded to a six pack. Last season's developments also include the expansion of the Pas de la Casa beginner area, extra snow-making and improvements to the terrain-park and boarder-cross area. The local slopes are situated on a high, treeless, north/south ridge, with Pas de la Casa on the east side and Grau Roig on the west. To the south of Grau Roig, towards the head of the valley, is Mont Malus, a small wooded area served by a drag with a couple of scenic reds and a black run through the trees. To the west of Grau Roig, a quad chair goes up to a ridge from which pistes lead into the next valley and lifts from there up to the Colada d'Enradort, 2447 metres up and the Funicamp top station, which is connected to the village of Encamp by a 6 kilometre gondola. You will now also find 6 kilometres of new off-piste runs, down by the gondola mid-station. The link with Soldeu also starts here.

Snowboarding is very popular in the GranValira ski area with a good range of terrain to conquer and a board park and half-pipe on the Grau Roig side of the mountain to pull off the tricks. Other resort attractions include duty free shops, bars, cafés, restaurants and nightclubs. There is also a sports centre with a swimming pool, tennis, squash and a gym. For non-skiers a snowmobiling exploration of the area is sure to thrill or you may like to take a duty-free shopping trip to Andorra's capital, and visit the Caldea Spa and Sport Wellness centre in Soldeu.
