Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Tom W, Personally I would go beforehand as it will undoubtedly bring more skiers into the resort. The pistes were in the main deserted when we were there

boabski, Good point. I remember your older posts about planning the trip to Kappl and when I saw your report I was glad it went well.

Although I haven't been there yet I find the whole Paznaun Valley very attractive, Galtur, Ischgl, then Kappl and See (which might be later connected to St Anton and Serfaus).

This sound just great as a base for long holiday. But seems more like a DIY trip as tour operators are expensive in this area.

boabski, delighted that you enjoyed Kappl ... and a great report. I recall your original thread when you were planning this trip. Did you check out the other hotels and have you selected one whihc you would prefer to return to ?

Tom W, Was very pleasantly surprised about how good the skiing was around Kappl and probably edges Lech in that respect (although I think Lech is still a better overall experience). Didn't particularly 'warm' to Ischgl despite wanting to go for several years now - admittedly we were only there for one day and left around 5.45, so did not sample Ischgl 'vollgass' - that said St Anton is rocking by 4 Toofy Grin
Would return for a family trip any day of the week and probably stay in Hotel Auhof

Great Report. How long did the journey from Kappl to Memmingen take?We are and going to Ischgl from Memmingen in 2 weeks time and also thinking of stopping off in kappl on the way to hire some skis as they seem to be half the price of Ischgls ski hire shops.

Chick, Taking it reasonably slow and getting caught at the tunnel at German border in big queue (Hochbratz or something like that - pretty sure it's near Bregenz) it took 2.45 hours but I'm sure it can be done quicker. Pretty sure there's a hire shop near the gondola on the main valley road in Kappl. Also look at See for hiring as there looked like a few hire shops on the main rd there too. Are you going Saturday? From memory we had long queue going through same tunnel on way to St Anton a few years back when flying to Friedrichshafen. Think outwith Saturdays you're fine though

I think there is no harm in knowing the following

Resort, Piste length (km), notes
Ischgl & Samnaun, 235. 40 lifts
Kappl, 40, 9 lifts. 15km easy/20km medium/5km difficult
Galtur, 40, 10 lifts 4/24/12 km
See, 33, 8 lifts , an ideal beginner area
Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis, 185, 53 lifts


Using Kappl as the centre See is 4 miles in the direction out of the valley.
Ischgl is 6 miles into the valley where Galtur is further 12 miles from Kappl. Realistically Samnaun should be skied from Ischgl.

From Kappl going out of the valley and into the neighboring valley the resort Serfaus-Fiss_ladis is only 27 miles away. An excellent place for a day trip.

The above are just 5 out of the 337 Austrian resorts. The majority of them are not detectable by UK TO radar.

Kappl is also about 21 miles from St Anton, another day trip?

I think we will try it in March, it's on the lift pass for Galtur, so if the snow is still good we will go there one morning. Thanks.
