Ski info
  • Ski area

     Based in the Silvretta Arena, Kappl is similar to Galtür in that it offers an alternative to skiing the mainstream resort of Ischgl each day. With its own separate ski area – which you are able to use with a Silvretta lift pass – it offers a quieter, more modest 42km of piste that is suitable for all abilities. The Kappl ski area can only be accessed by gondola, where you can discover a whole new side to the Silvretta Arena via one of the 10 lifts that take you all the way to an altitude of 2700m.

    Once up on the slopes, any beginners in the group can start off on one of the 4 magic carpet areas, potentially progressing all the way up the mountain to try out one of the easier blue runs. With a good assortment of moderate and advanced runs, both pisted and non-pisted, there is enough to challenge the more seasoned skiers and snowboarders within the group. With such a great variety to offer the whole family, Kappl has become an award winning family ski resort.

    Similarly to Galtür, most people only tend to ski the Kappl ski area for a couple of days for a change in pace to the skiing over in Ischgl, but it is definitely the perfect place for beginners to go as it allows them to properly develop their skiing or snowboarding. The beautiful wide slopes, stunning views and snowsure conditions ensure you will get your money’s worth on this ski weekend! 

    The resort

    Kappl is located just 15 minutes away from Ischgl via the ski bus. After See, it is the second of the Austrian Silvretta Arena ski resorts you come to in the Paznaun Valley on your way from Innsbruck Airport. 

    Kappl; a quiet, family orientated alpine ski area, contrasts with the party vibe of the town that is located a bit further up the valley in Ischgl. Whilst both have their drawbacks, Kappl is seen as the more family friendly resort, making it an ideal choice for a family ski trip if you are all looking to tackle the vast skiing on offer in the Silvretta Arena ski area.

    Kappl sits on a shelf around 100m off the valley floor and is populated by some beautiful alpine lodges and restaurants for its guests to make use of offering a wide range of cuisine. 

    If you are looking for other non-ski activities whilst visiting Kappl, then be sure to try out the tobogganing or take a sleigh ride in the evening to explore some more of the village. We strongly recommend the winter-wonderland hiking trails where you can take in the best views that the Tyrolean region has to offer!
