Samnaun Ski Resort, Switzerland


The former smugglers’ paradise of Samnaun located in the Swiss, Austrian and Italian triangle has developed into a holiday resort for hiking enthusiasts and mountain bike riders. In winter the cross-border winter sports region of Samnaun and Ischgl (Austria) caters for the most discerning of visitors. All year round shrewd shoppers reap the benefits of the only tax-free resort in Switzerland.

The shared ski region of Samnaun and the Austrian resort of Ischgl – the Silvretta Arena between Arlberg and the Silvretta Group – is the biggest joint ski region in the Eastern Alps.

42 transport facilities, including the Samnaun Twinliner as the only double-decker cable car, take carvers, snowboarders and sun-worshippers to airy heights. With over 200 kilometres of groomed pistes as well as designated deep-snow areas for off-piste skiers and wide pistes for carvers and lovers of fast descents are perfectly catered for. «Boarders Paradise» – one of the biggest snowboard parks in Europe boasting 1100 metres of piste and 30 facilities – gets boarders’ pulses racing. Snow sports schools ensure athletes of all ages know all the right moves.

40 kilometres of winter walking trails, cross-country skiing tracks, toboggan runs and snow-shoe trails fulfil most winter walkers’ wishes. Finally, the Alpenquell Experience Spa is the perfect place to unwind.
