Did you know?

The ‘father of modern skiing’, Hannes Schneider, set up the first ski school in Arlberg and revolutionised downhill skiing techniques. He’d displayed a talent for skiing from an early age, winning one of the first races held by the newly formed Arlberg Ski Club before he turned 13.


Skiing in St Anton am Arlberg


St Anton am Arlberg (St Anton is the town, Arlberg the ski area) regularly ranks among the best-rated ski resorts in the Alps, and it’s little wonder. With 340 km of well-groomed pistes, 94 lifts, an average of 7 m of snowfall each winter and plenty of challenging off-piste skiing for the experts, it’s a dream come true for experienced skiers in particular.

The bulk of the slopes here can be found on the same side of the valley as the town, rising above it, with slopes ideal for learners located closest to St Anton at the bottom and more challenging terrain the higher you go. Nasserein is the place to go for beginners, while Rendl is a good bet for those with more experience.

From here, you can get on a lift to travel across the Moos Valley to Galzig mountain, where you can get to some particularly tricky off-piste skiing. Other ski areas nearby include Albonagrat, Lech and Zürs.

Albonagrat should appeal to off-piste enthusiasts. Highlights include the Maroikopf-Langen and Geisleger routes, which should push most experienced skiers.

Together, fashionable Lech and Zürs offer 340 km of skiing and form part of the legendary White Ring circuit between Lech, Zürs, Zug and Oberlech. Lech offers significant off-piste opportunities and is also linked to Warth by a gondola.

Most of Lech’s slopes are sunny and free of trees. The primary pistes are around Oberlech and a succession of lifts and cable cars take skiers from here to the start of the White Ring, Trittkopf, Seekopf and Muggengrat. Lech gets 8 m of snow on average each ski season, ensuring quality slopes, while Zürs and Warth can get even more.

If cross-country skiing is more appealing, you’ll find an excellent network of 40 km of trails in St Anton am Arlberg. The trails boast great snow conditions and a wide variety of difficulty levels, ensuring there’s something for everyone.
