Kappl Snowboarding

The 46th most popular snowboarding destination in Austria.

Southwest of Innsbruck and Landeck, the Kappl ski area of the Silvretta Ski Arena has 21 pistes served by 6 lifts with a maximum vertical descent of 1,500m. The main base lift heads up to the mid-station, and most of your day will be doing laps from the mid-station up. Therefore the effective vertical descent is more like 750m since you’ll rarely head to the base area except on your last run.

The Kappl ski area is part of the Silvretta Ski Arena. If you purchase the full Silvretta ski pass, you can snowboard at Kapple, See, Galtur, Ischgl and Samnaun. A ski bus is required to get between the ski areas within Silvretta. Keep in mind that the default Kappl ski pass does not include the Silvretta ski areas, so make sure to ask.

There is a great ski route to explore for advanced riders - Ski Route #16 starts from the Alblittkopfbahn top station and back down to the Alblittkopfbahn base station near the Tiroler Hutte. For a long adventure run, ideal for the last run of the day, head back up to the Alblittkopfbahn top station and head down the Lattenabfahrt #9 to connect with Route #4 dow to the Diasbahn base for the full 1,500m descent.

To reach the snowboarding at Kappl from Innsbruck or Zurich, take the train to the Landeck station. There is an hourly Post Bus from the Landeck train station up to Kappl (50 min). In addition, there is a free ski bus from Kappl further up to Ischgl Florian Platz, so you may prefer to stay in Ischgl on the northwest side near Florian Platz to enjoy both ski area. Note: the village of Kappl is on a hill above the actual base area ski lift, and there are no ski pistes that come into the village on the hill, so a ski bus is required to get to the lift.

Overall, Kappl is the 46th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 52 snowboarding resorts in Austria.
