Freeride Ischgl for the Ultimate Alpine Thrills

6 freeriding lines for everyone from beginners to experts, and every condition from big dumps to spring snow.

Description

With snow-sure slopes stretching across a 239km expanse of skiable area and crossing the border into Switzerland, Ischgl is one of the largest resorts in Austria’s Tyrol region. It also benefits from being at high altitude, with its highest peak- the Palinkopf- at almost 3,000 metres above sea level, guaranteeing snow from November all the way through until May.

The town itself has a traditional, quaint look to it, but an atmosphere of debauchery, attracting groups of young skiers with its choice of lively bars and clubs. But of course, Ischgl is a large enough place to have many different sides to it. Young families and visitors looking for a tranquil mountain getaway will find what they’re looking for if they stay a little further away from the centre, and although the general vibe of Ischgl town may not be to everyone’s taste, there’s no debating the epicness of the skiing- from the vastness of skiable terrain to the efficiency of the lifts, and not to mention the killer mountain views.

Here are 6 freeride lines to get your teeth into. Beginners wanting an easy access line, head to ‘41’. Experts, you’ll have everything from forest to rocky lines in a totally isolated area with the Nachtweidebahn Forest Freeride Line.
