the weather front through Austria last night swung north west at the last minute and caught Ischgl


just a dusting from what I can see from webcams - this was forecast yesterday. Clear now, cannon low down firing, but a foehn for the next 3 days before possibility of snow at Xmas - the two main weather forecast models both showing something, but differing amounts, though neither that much

Ischgl has got it 'on' again. Definitely in much better shape than Christmas 2015 (& that was ok) Raining in the town now, snowline at 1900 I think so should be even better up top tomorrow. Some sunny days coming up. Couldn't have worked out any better.

More crowds today. 45 min que for gondola...even after a pre ski coffee...which meant more ques than last 2 days..

Caught bus to Galtur today.
Until they get fresh real snow i wouldn't advise anyone loosing a day in Ischgl.
All there snow is man made, in the shadow of the mountain so no depth and icy....
We gave up at 2pm as the sun just wasn't covering enough to thaw one whole run...
Great once the have snow .
Great for families and beginners as quiet.

Good couple of days in Ischgl. ..
BUT now too busy.
I've never seen so many ambulances and helicopter lifts in one holiday.
4 to 5 a day.
Got tired of tots snow ploughing down hard pack busy reds and blacks with no parent evident. And people way outside their skill level on all pistes.
Otherwise they have done great with what they have, snow wise.
Blowers building up reserves in -ve temps ready for warmer weather.
If your going, get to the Gondolas early and save yourself 45 mins in the queue. ....

@noisey, Surprised at some of your comments. I was in Ischgl from 22nd December until yesterday and didn't queue once for the gondola for more than 10 minutes. Which Gondola were you using ?

Silvretta does tend to get busy, especially around ski school start time but then it's the closest gondola for about half the town. Walk past the Silvrettabahn to the Dorftunnel and take the travellator to the Fimbabahn and shuffle on to a gondola in about 4-5min at the same time of day. That's what I'll be doing in 4 days time (in some nice fresh snow if the forecast for today/the weekend turn out to be correct)...

Use the Pardatschgrat gondola and you'll rarely have any queue.

We've in the Val Sinestra with a view over the Field of Falls down to the Intersport and about 50m from the lift too, just the lift down to the middle of the Dorftunnel.

If you see 4 guys with polar bear hats propping up the bar in the Kitshloch, come and say hello.

Looked at the ones up the top and didn't look like a good visibility day but that's fine when it also means it's a good snow day.

Was in Ischgl last January and used the Silvretta each day as it was the nearest. Anytime between 9 and 9:30 we didn't queue for more than 10mins.

Still coming down in Idalp on the live stream too.

A good amount of snow fell a few days ago. Since then it has been pretty cold.

More snow is falling now Very Happy

More snow overnight and snowing most of the day, so no shortage of natural snow on or off the pistes here in Ischgl. Not the best light as a result though so hard to see where there were tracks and where there were piles of fresh snow.

Resort runs in really good condition with snow rather than ice and not too many people/bodies on them.

Resort seems very quiet this week (we're usually here mid/end March) but didn't stop 3 of our group breaking themselves on beer and schnapps in the Kitzloch last night Smile

OK, not a snow report but finally found out what the après song to the tune of Kenny Rodgers "The Gambler" is - Roger and over's "Volvo B18 Song".

Will never understand where the Austrian's find their après songs but thank god (and pear schnapps) they do! 😃

Great conditions in Ischgl today. The snow from the last couple of days bashed on the pistes with plenty of untracked snow just off them (at the start of the day at least) under sunny blue sky's.

A few 'snow ice' sections like the steep narrow section of 7 but not found any blue sheet ice anywhere. Get on the front of your skis and nothing to worry about.

Snow to the sides of the pistes getting tracked out by the end of the day. We didn't go up the Piz Val side but hardly busy up there today so would expect there's still plenty of untracked up there if that's your thing.

No sun on the top of the mountain above the village this morning so looks like the forecast for more snow to call's going to be correct.

Pistes still very good and not getting too cut up by the end of the day. Home run reds getting very cut up but black options still perfect even late in the day.

Tricky skiing conditions in Ischgl today. Looks like more snow fell overnight but on the back of some strong winds leading an icy packed base with powder on top. Add in some flatish light and the blood wagon was busy. Saw the helicopter land on the piste in one case, which is the first time I've seen the chopper go to the body not the other way around.

More snow starting to roll in now so looking like the yellow lens again tomorrow.

Snow falling but being pushed by a biting wind up in the ski area today. Not much fun to be in but should mean plenty of fresh snow for anyone turning up next week.

You know the way it always seem to throw the snow down on your last night and you wake up to catch your transfer bus in clear blue sky's? Yea, not so much I Ischgl this morning.

Snow all night and still snowing in town, heavier than it's been all week.

If it clears up in the next couple of days there will be great snow for anyone arriving today but at the moment I think even the most hard core skiers would think twice when they pull back the curtain!

Not looking forward to waiting outside another hotel for the transfer coach...

Just got back from 4 days in Ischgl. Great conditions on the pistes (off piste looked tracked out) and it was snowing when we left resort yesterday afternoon. The only downside is the number of lunatics skiing the very tricky resort runs (which should probably be shown as black - run 7 was the trickiest we did all weekend) at very high speeds. And the apres-ski was as crazy as ever ...
