Winter holiday in Samnaun

Get active with skiing, tobogganing, cross-country skiing and much more besides.

When winter comes to Samnaun, it seems a season that just does not want to end. Winter lasts from the beginning of December until the beginning of May, putting a thrill in the hearts of all our guests. The snow makes itself at home here, filling the town with sparkling flakes in the air, crisp powder on the slopes and a crystalline glistening icing on the treetops.

It is all the same whether snowboarding, skiing, cross-country skiing or snowshoe trekking… If paradise were to be somewhere between 1,700 and 2,900 metres, you would find it here in Samnaun.

Skiing in the Samnaun-Ischgl ski resort

The Samnaun-Ischgl ski resort has long been accorded mythic status. Apparently endless expansive white slopes coupled with guaranteed snow cover and state-of-the-art lifts - all of this is to be found in the Silvretta Arena ski resort.

The term "limitless skiing" only reveals its true meaning in the largest ski resort in the eastern Alps. Snow sports enthusiasts find everything their hearts desire on the 238 kilometres of slopes. Several of the runs even start right on the invisible border between Switzerland and Austria. So you may well become international without even noticing, because it is easy for one foot to end up in Austria while the other is still standing in Switzerland. 

From Samnaun you take the world's first double-decker cable railway, which is located just a few minutes from the Hotel Homann, right into the heart of peerless skiing pleasure.

"Sledging" or tobogganing

The ancient Alp settlers were already relying on sledges centuries ago as a useful tool and loyal sidekick. Tobogganing is once again gaining wide popularity – high on the list of winter delights for old and young.

On two natural tobogganing runs, you can enjoy gorgeous views of the Samnaun valley as fast or as leisurely as you like. At night-time, when the hills are lit by torches as part of the weekly programme, tobogganing is especially romantic and atmospheric. Toboggans can be hired in all Samnaun gear shops.
