The 71st most popular snowboarding destination in Switzerland.

  Silvretta Ski Arena, Graubuenden, Switzerland


  March 3, 2019

Southwest of Innsbruck and Landeck, the Samnaun ski area has several lifts accessing big vertical. The base village of Samnaun is actually very long with only one main cable car lift heading back up the mountain. The main runs down into Samnaun enter the village on one end or the other and may necessitate taking a ski bus back to the cable car.

The Silvretta Ski Arena links Samnaun Ski Area in Switzerland with the Ischgl Ski Area in Austria. There are also some smaller bus-connected ski areas if you purchase the greater Silvretta ski pass including Galtur, Kappl and See. After all the powder is tracked out, you may want to try the newer Schmuggler Runde circults which loop around the entire ski area. The loops start and finish at either the Fimbabahn lift base station in Ischgl or the Twinliner cable-car station in Samnaun. The Gold Schmuggler Runde is a 35.7km loop with 6,463m of vertical descent. The Silver Schmuggler Runde is a 24.7km loop with 4,745m of vertical descent. The Bronze Schmuggler Runde is a 19.8km loop with 3,191m of vertical descent.

For apres-ski, make sure to check out the Schmuggler Alm on the western end of the village. And, for some nightlife action, definitely check out the Why Not Bar Club in the lowest level of the Hotel Post.

To reach the snowboarding at Samnaun from Innsbruck or Zurich, take the train to the Landeck station. There is a Post-bus from the Landeck train station to Samnaun (but it may require a convenient change of bus).

Overall, Samnaun is the 71st most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 87 snowboarding resorts in Switzerland. Several of the better snowboarding resorts are nearby Samnaun including Ischgl, Kappl, See Bergbahnen and Galtuer.
