The Austrian resort opened at the weekend with 20,000 people attending a concert by Leona Lewis and the slopes covered with fresh snow.
Well what can we say?
Another weekend passes and another resort opens with huge amounts of snow.
The Austrian resort of Ischgl is renowned for its opening and closing concerts.
Last season Elton John closed proceedings while this year Leona Lewis and Gabriella Cilmi opened things up.
By day everyone was skiing and snowboarding on near perfect slopes and by night they were rocking away to a spectacular concert.
We’ll have videos of the concert and interviews with the stars later in the week, but in the meantime take a look at this video report on the conditions that were filmed and edited on Saturday, by our content editor, James Cove.
We are currently editing the Leona Lewis video but to whet your apppetite here is a fantastic performance from Gabriella Climi. You can probably guess what the song is! Here at planetSKI we’ve seen Joss Stone, Elton John, Robert Plant, Iggy Pop, Morcheeba and may other bands in ski resort concerts.
This was one of the best. It was truly amazing.
The resort of Ischgl comes highly recommended for apres ski. Check out the guide here.
