Cable cars & lifts in Ischgl

Up high quickly and safely – with the cable cars and chairlifts in Ischgl’s Silvretta Arena

Barely manageable in a day:

45 lift and cable car facilities and over 238km prepared pistes into the Swiss duty-free zone, Samnaun

If Tyrol’s best interconnected ski area can do just one thing, it can bring its guests with the utmost reliability and in comfort up to the ski pistes and into winter sports pleasure. All that in state-of-the-art cable cars and lifts, together with the highest safety standards.
In Austria and in Tyrol in particular cable cars enjoy a tradition which goes back decades. On 15th December 1963 the first cable car in Ischgl was put into operation by Silvrettaseilbahn AG.

These days cable cars are among the safest mass transportation methods. All the high safety standards are put forward and monitored by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology and a number of international cable car committees. Moreover, the cable cars and lifts in Ischgl in Tyrol and in Samnaun in Switzerland regularly undergo thorough inspections and tests.

Ischgl sets standards

Standing in a queue is somewhat of a rare event, something that the state-of-the-art shutter system which has an enormously high passenger conveyance capacity, ensures. They make sure that skiers spend a lot more of their time on the pistes than anywhere else while they are on holiday.

Here you spend hardly any of your time waiting in queues.

It is not just for this reason that Silvrettaseilbahn AG in Tyrol and its Skiarena has received many awards.
