19 FEBRUARY 2007

Paris, who was accompanied by her brother Barron and cousin Brooke Brinson, didn't just arrive in the pretty Tyrolean town for on-piste action, however. She also kicked off her 26th birthday celebrations there, making the most of the champagne-filled apres-ski scene with a bash at Pacha nightclub, before heading to Las Vegas to continue the revelry on Saturday.

A favourite with the jet-set, the pretty resort of Ischgl enjoys a five-month season thanks to its high-altitude peaks and the help of 600 snow-making machines. Bargain shopping is another draw, as one long run brings skiers into Samnaun, a remote Swiss village with duty-free status.

Unusually Ischgl is a music venue, too, renowned for its famous free open-air concerts in the snow, which attract a host of celebrity performers. This year the Scissor Sisters are due to perform on April 9 and Dreamgirls star Beyonce will close the season on April 29.
