Demi Lovato performed during an hour and a half well-known classics, as well as new hits from her latest album, in a snowy and cold night.
Perfect piste conditions, continuous snowfall and the “Top of the Mountain Opening Concert” with Demi Lovato ensured a successful start to the season in Ischgl.
Demi Lovato follows in the footsteps of a galaxy of superstars who have entertained skiers and boarders in the Austrian resort's traditional Top of the Mountain gig. Years ago, Ischgl decided to put its entire advertising and marketing budget into staging two massive concerts a year to open and close the winter season. Elton John was the first international star to feature in the Tirolean resort's now-famous season-closing concerts, back in April 1995. Since then, the resort has hosted Rod Stewart, Bob Dylan, Sting, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Bon Jovi, Enrique Iglesias, Atomic Kitten, Peter Gabriel, The Corrs, Alanis Morissette, Lionel Richie, Pink, the Scissor Sisters, the Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna, Elton John again, Gabriella Cilmi, Leona Lewis, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Gossip, The Killers, Roxette, Mariah Carey, The Scorpions, Deep Purple, Nickelback, Robbie Williams, James Blunt, Thirty Seconds to Mars, The Beach Boys, PUR, Zucchero, Jason Derulo, Lenny Kravitz, Simply Red, Kings of Leon, Sean Paul, George Ezra, and Eros Ramazzotti.
Ischgl is a true Ski Paradise in Tirol (Austria) with 239 km of perfectly groomed slopes, 45 lifts, and guaranteed snow from November to the beginning of May, thanks to the ski resort's high elevation and 1,100 snowmaking guns.
The modern lifts managed by the Silvretta Seilbahn AG Company offer a high level of comfort. Opened in January of 2014, with its 1,251 meters of difference in altitude, the 3-S Pardatschgratbahn in Ischgl is one of the biggest of its kind. The ascent from the valley up to the mountain station takes about nine minutes. A cable car of superlatives that forms the entry point to the Silvretta Arena together with the Fimbabahn and Silvrettabahn cable cars.
From Ischgl you can access the Silvretta Arena Ski Paradise, -the third-biggest ski resort in Tirol-, thanks to an alliance between two Companies (SilvrettaSeilbahn AG and BergbahnenSammaun AG) and two ski resorts (Ischgl-Sammaun) from two different countries (Switzerland-Austria).
A variety of pistes (20 blue, 40 red, and 25 black) and ski routes offer an opportunity for everyone, from beginners to experts looking for challenging pistes. Eleven is the name of the longest piste with approximately 11 kilometers from the top of the ski resort in Greitspitz (2,872 meters) to Ischgl village (1,400 meters).
15 mountain restaurants and ski huts, with Tyrolean specialties or international dishes, will complete a perfect day of skiing in Ischgl.
