highest peak on Ischgl This winter (of 2014) we did our annual big Alpine ski trip to Ischgl in Austria from Feb-15 to Feb-22. In Finland the schools have a winter vacation week, and in Southern Finland it is always the week number 8, the last week of February, so that is the best opportunity to make a trip like this with children.
This year we flew to München on Saturday Feb-15, and drove to Ischgl over the Bavarian mountains via Garmisch-Partenkirhcen then over the Inn valley and up the Patznauer valley to the village of Ischgl. We had a rented Mercedes Vito, which is just big enough for our family of six. At Ischgl we had rented an apartment with 3 bedrooms and kitchen from the house of Alp Bella. We had six days of skiing at the resort. We had two sunny days, two days with quite heavy snow and then two cloudy days. When we arrived, there was not that much snow, but during our stay the many snowfalls improved the situation a lot, and there was plenty of anckle deep power snow available. The resorts was very nice and it was a good holiday. On Saturday Feb-22 we drove back to München and flew back home.
