“Spring Blanc”: Events and Sunshine Skiing in Ischgl

“Spring Blanc”: Events and Sunshine Skiing in Ischgl

Springtime in Ischgl is one more reason to hit the slopes: From the end of March to early May the so-called “Spring Blanc” takes place, a mix of sporty, music and culinary events as well as sunshine skiing, ensuring fun on and away from the region’s pistes.
Sun, snow, spring temperatures, excellent cuisine and spectacular open-air concerts. At the end of March, Ischgl ups its game once again with “Spring Blanc”, an event series at the Silvretta Arena, that will surely bring additional enjoyable reasons to spend springtime in the snow. The Top of the Mountain Easter Concert with German rapper Nina Chuba on 31 March 2024 marks the official kick off, afterwards holidaymakers can look forward to a colourful mix of food, music, and top-notch skiing up until the season closing on 1 May 2024. Among the Highlights: Culinary festivals and competitions, the Top of the Mountain Spring, Easter and Closing Concerts with international headliners including the Black Eyed Peas, the Spring Snow Festival at the Alp Trida and smaller special moments (see full event schedule below).

The best thing about it:  The Silvretta Arena with its 239 km of slopes is located 2,000m above sea level, meaning skiers can whizz down the pistes, and enjoy exhilarating powder descents before and after the events up until the very end of the season.
