NY Ski Magazine: Ischgl, Austria

For the third and final installment of the Magazine’s series on Austria, we head to the popular resort of Ischgl, which not only offers an extensive, snow-sure winter playground straddling the Swiss border, but also an après-ski scene that’ll test the mettle of even the most hardcore party hounds.

Skiing Ischgl Austria

Sometimes referred to as St. Anton’s indefatigable younger brother, Ischgl is truly a place where you can have your schnaps and drink it too — stay in the lively urbane town for easy access to 40+ bars and nightclubs (pole and lap dancing optional) or use one of the quiet nearby villages as a headquarters if you’re only there for the skiing and/or have the family in tow.

Equally noteworthy, the ski area manages to simultaneously celebrate its fun-loving reputation and more than five months of lift operations (stretching from late November to early May) by holding two huge outdoor concerts at mid-mountain to open and close each ski season.
