Once a year, Galtür transforms into the world capital of city cross-country ski runs. It’s that time of year again today. Welcome to the Nordic Night Race, Volume II.
From the Greitspitze, the highest point in the ski area, down to Ischgl, it’s 11 kilometres. That already sounds impressive. But it gets even more impressive when you compare the number with other things which are 11 kilometres long.
At exactly 8.30, the barriers go up on the Pardatschgradbahn cable car and tourists are allowed up the mountain. Every minute counts, because skiing is never better than in the early hours of the morning. We know what we’re talking about.
DJ Ötzi is a star, and everyone knows his hits like “Anton aus Tirol” or “Ein Stern”. His concerts are usually sold out – and today the singer is guesting in Kappl. Here are five things you never knew about DJ Ötzi.
What’s the best ski area in the Alps? Ischgl. Of course. We’ve known that for a long time. But yesterday it was confirmed by Snowplaza, the most important ski portal in the German language. And quite right too, we think.
In the summer of 1970, almost 50 years ago now, the first lift was built in Kappl. Since then, development has continued apace. More and more people want to go skiing in Kappl. And for a very good reason. Here’s a short journey through time.
There’s a slope which every skier who’s ever been skiing in Ischgl is sure to know. The Prennerhang, the last part of the downhill run to the Pardatschgratbahn cable car. If you ski it late in the afternoon, it might not always be quite so much fun. But you can see the most fantastic performances on it too – this evening, for example.
Had enough of skiing? Then why not have a go at tobogganing? We’ve got four tips on making it safe for children and still having fun.
Michaela Ehgartner is 18 years old and Austria’s junior National Champion in Table Service. Born in Styria, she studied in Carinthia and works in Tyrol. She speaks with Trisanna about motivation, wanting to learn from the best, and her yearn to travel – although perhaps quite not so far.
The ski world championships ends this weekend. But the next generation are still racing ferociously – and in Ischgl, too. We went to see the children’s training session at the Ischgl-Silvretta Ski Club. And met up with an old friend.
Every region has its traditional old recipes. Paznaun in the past was a place where people didn’t have very much. And so back then that’s how they cooked: with simple ingredients but with a great deal of love. The Trisanna Granny, Herta Siegele, shows us just how.
Spectacular jumps, breathtaking nature – and great winners. The next generation of international freeriders raced down the Quellspitze in Kappl yesterday. Missed the event? Trisanna has a quick recap. And a video for those of you who have a bit more time.
Yes, places change over the years. Trisanna’s photo editor has dug out old pictures and then photographed the same places for you again, several years later. Today: the Paznaun valley.
Don’t worry, Trisanna’s just having a short break from winter. But one that’s worthwhile. Because we’re taking a quick look at the people who are making sure there’ll be gourmet dishes available in the mountain huts of Paznaun, alongside the usual regional specialities, in summer 2019.
Harald Seidler is 52 years old and the trade law managing director of the SSAG’s restaurant and catering business. Harald actually comes from Styria but has been in Ischgl for over 25 years now. In Trisanna, he ponders on what home means and explains why “Sorry” is often the best answer.
For another three days, Ischgl will still be the capital of Bavaria (then their Bamps* have to go back to Schui**). Which means it’s definitely the right time to explain at least a couple of those strange words they keep using. So that we can understand each other properly, and the Grattla*** will come back again. We’re not Zipflklatscher**** after all.
There are certain slopes for special circumstances. Today we reveal where you should ski if you want to feel like Marcel Hirscher just for once. Spoiler: it’s Piste 38 down to the Gampenbahn chairlift.
