A need for speed: the racetracks in Ischgl
Aching thighs are part of the fun on ski slope Eleven. If your thighs don’t ache by the end of the eleven-kilometer-long run you’re a real pro.

Thanks to the mix of red and black slopes, you’ll be guaranteed to have plenty of variety and exciting stories to tell by the end of your ski day.
Another hot tip for lovers of the steep slopes: Black slope 4 from the mountain station of the 3-S Pardatschgratbahn (A2) cable car to the valley station of the Pardoramabahn (F2) cable car. It makes your calves quiver and raises your adrenaline just the same.

Not for the faint of heart: the steepest slope in Ischgl
Almost 2 kilometers that offer quite a kick. A difference in elevation of around 650 meters and a steep gradient of up to 70 percent.
