New in Ischgl: Lift off with ‘Ischgl Skyfly’

Two kilometres in length, 50 metres high, speeds of up to 84 kilometres per hour. With the new Flying Fox facility ‘Ischgl Skyfly’, from 26th November 2016 winter sports lover become high-flyers. 

High-wire act in Ischgl – from the 2016/17 winter season, Ischgl will have one more highlight with the new Flying Fox facility ‘Ischgl Skyfly’. The special thing about this – two people get to speed downhill next to one another on the parallel ‘wire cable slides’ and thanks to a special device your ski equipment comes with you too. Kitted out with a chest belt and seat belt daredevils are attached to a wire cable via a pulley and they glide at speeds of up to 84 kilometres per hour down into the valley. 

On the run into the valley skiers can stop at the intermediate station for the Silvrettabahn and finish their breakneck final spurt on the Skyfly. This adrenalin kick is by no means just the reserve of winter athletes – non-skiers can also get to the start area at 1683 metres altitude on the gondola lift. After two interim stops this somewhat different run into the valley ends directly on the roof terrace for the valley station of the 3-S Pardatschgratbahn (1376 metres altitude). Three part sections at 50 metres altitude which have a spectacular route ensure some extra ‘screams’, for instance beneath the Kitzloch suspension bridge and through the Fimbabahn. For up to one and a half minutes each section reaches top speeds of up to 84 kilometres per hour. This speedy journey down into the valley on the new Ischgl Skyfly costs 39 Euro for adults, 25 Euro for under 17s. Children from the age of 8 and who are at least 1.20 metres in height can come along too. Tickets can be purchased online from the start of the season or at the intermediate station for the Silvrettabahn. All information available at: www.skyfly-ischgl.at
