Stave race: every Tuesday from 8.30 p.m. at Gampele
Staves are the vertical planks of wood on a barrel. They are used for this skiing competition. Very simple straps are used to attach them. The race participants use them as skis and do a slalom race. People are bound to fall over. And the audience roars with laughter.
If you are interested in a very special kind of skiing experience, you must give this a go. Nighttime skiing with the mighty Ballunspitze as a backdrop is a special kind of experience. The 2.2-kilometre ski slope has bright daylight, even in bad weather.
The Alpinarium Galtür was set up after the avalanche disaster on 23 February 1999. The back wall of the building serves as an avalanche protection wall. In addition to the permanent exhibition "Ganz oben" (at the very top), the terrible catastrophe of 1999 is showcased in a very impressive way.
A truly romantic holiday must include a ride in a horse-drawn sleigh. It allows you to enjoy the magnificent Silvretta scenery in entirely unexpected ways. You can book your outing in Ischgl or in Galtür.
Did you know that Ischgl has one of the longest illuminated toboggan runs in the Alps? Every Monday and Thursday you can use this diverse run from 7 p.m. Weather permitting, the toboggan evenings are held from mid-December to the beginning of April. Please note that the cableway ride is not included with the normal ski pass.
Ice skating has a touch of lightness about it. And there is something inherently fascinating about gliding along in the warm winter sun or under the starry night sky. Take a few laps and you'll soon feel great.
If you want to improve your fitness levels, we recommend cross-country skiing in the mountains. Gliding along in an even rhythm really gets you going, the fresh mountain air makes you feel great, and working off the calories this way is fun. The cross-country trail from Ischgl to Galtür is considered one of the most beautiful in the high mountain ranges.
We admit, it calls for a bit of courage. But it is possible. Without any special skills you can roam the sky above Paznaun like an eagle. Book a paragliding tandem flight and experience the fascinating world of the mountains from above.
As you probably know, the Ischgl ski region stretches all the way to Switzerland, which means that you can ski down to the duty-free zone in Samnaun in Switzerland. There you can buy fashion brands, luxury goods, jewellery and tobacco products at discount prices. Please observe the import regulations. The ski region has border controls.
