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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It’s on again – the freeski days are back on the Idalp! You’re between 8 and 16 years of age, want to take your first big jumps, learn from real pros and – whisper it – not even have to pay for it? Then step this way, please.
The basic equipment for a skiing holiday also includes a smart phone. You can use it as a tracker, a weather warning device or a booking portal. Three of our favourite apps here at Trisanna.
The Alpine Ski World Championships is a time for experts. And on Austrian TV channel ORF in particular, they use expressions which normal people can’t understand. But Trisanna is here to help: we’ve asked Ischgl experts to explain sports journalist German to us. Today: what, then, is an aggressive snow?
Ski goggles are perhaps the most under-appreciated part of winter sport gear. But the ideal goggles don’t just give you comfort and style – they are first and foremost about functionality, and that means safety. Trisanna’s found the best goggles around right now for different weather conditions.
