This study examines the developmental processes of ski resorts in the Austrian Alps, where some ski resorts have continuously developed. The development processes of Ischgl in Tyrol are analyzed by changes of facilities in the ski field and the resort town. Ischgl has a short history compared to the historical Austrian ski resorts, such as Kitzbühel and Sankt Anton am Arlberg. By connecting the ski runs with Samnaun（Switzerland）, the ski field has been enlarged and the elevation has reached 2,875 meters above sea level. The ski field facilities have frequently been renovated for the comfort of the skiers. The resort town has increased its numbers of luxury hotels, après ski pubs, and sports shops. Ischgl's continuous development relates to its increasing identity as a typical resort of après ski and music concerts. However, its enriched facilities in the large ski field with a reliable snow cover have been more important to these developments.
