Elton John closes the winter season in Ischgl

Tomorrow Sir Elton John will perform the season closing Top Of The Mountain concert in Ischgl. It will be Sir Elton's second appearance at Ischgl. He was the first star to feature in the Tirolean resort's now famous season closing concerts, back in 1995. The concert will be at Idalp, at the top station of the main gondola from the village. Concert-goers just need a liftpass to get up to the venue at 2320m. The concert is on the last weekend of the ski season at Ischgl, with the slopes open for the last day on Sunday 4 May.
In Ischgl you can find ultramodern lift and cable-car system (3 cable cars, 2 aerial cableways, 23 chairlifts and 12 draglifts) with a transport capacity of 78,500 persons per hour ensure skiing without queues (€120 million have been invested over the last five years). The new lifts managed by the Silvretta Seilbahn AG Company offer a high level of comfort and countless extras, such as heated seats in the new Fimbabahn cable car. The 235 kilometres and 506 hectares of slopes are all located on north-facing slopes assuring a reliable snow cover.
