Feedback on recent Ischgl visit

My wife & I arrived in Munich Airport on Sat Dec 1st 2012.
Hired a car and drove 2h 45 minutes to Ischgl.
We booked into hotel Alpina, Junior suite, E88.00 per person per night - half board.
Super Room, super clean, super staff, super location, super Ski room.
As part of half board; the evening meal options were very limited.
That said, We would definitely stay in hotel Alpina again.

The apres ski in 'the Schatsi bar' (part of hotel Elizebeth)at the bottom of the slopes was thoroughly enjoyable.

Our best find/discovery was the bar/resturant on the top floor of the Silveretta/Fernau gondola station in the Idalp base.
Most days we had Tomato Soup, Apple Strudle with Vanilla sauce, followed with Irish Coffee. A relaxing read of a good book, while sitting at the bar counter, good down time!!!

The ski conditions were very good, we really had a good time. We skied mainly around the Idalp base and made a number of trips over into Switzerland. The Wednesday we left the resort there were major snow dumps, no doubt further enhansing the skiing.

My wife and I look forward to returning to Ischgl in
the future!

Folks, thank you for your comments to date, still not set on any one place so keep info coming.
Gadgycove, thanks for your experience in Ischgl, I have been there once about 4 years ago, other than having a bad accident on the slopes and nearly killing myself, it a very enjoyable ski trip and would certainly go back again.
Late Booking...is it worth it?

Val Thorens last april 2011 was a very good experience.
If you get a good package deal go for it.
Food is over priced in restuarants, so if you get a self catering arrangement/opportunity grab it.

I was in Val Thorens (France) in April 2011, V good experience.
I am constrained by the fact that I have to fly from Cork airport in Ireland, which has a direct flight to Munich.

A friend of mine recommended Bad HofGastein, my wife and I are good intermediates skiers, what are your thoughts on Bad Hof
