Winter in St. Anton

The birthplace of Alpine skiing

Holidaymakers who travel to the St. Anton am Arlberg region during the winter months encounter a snow and sport Eldorado that has long enjoyed a worldwide reputation – even more so following the 2001 Alpine World Ski Championships, to which it played host. Highest holiday standards, a second-to-none winter sport area, superb hospitality services, a cable car with state-of-the-art giant wheel technology, special weeks such as ‘Ladies First’ feel-good weeks, gourmet cuisine of the highest calibre, a brand-new multifunctional sport centre and countless events ensure an unforgettable holiday in the 2016/2017 winter season.

The St. Anton am Arlberg region ranks among the most snow-reliable winter sport areas in the Alps and, alongside its staggering mountain scenery, it also offers all the comforts and amenities of an international holiday destination. The region is distinguished by its warm hospitality and Tyrolean tradition combined with international flair and a cosmopolitan outlook.

Ski Area
Stunning Alpine beauty
The Arlberg region has always been renowned for its stunning Alpine beauty, its snow reliability – not just on the slopes but down in the villages too – and the immaculate conditions on its ski slopes. Eighty-five state-of-the-art cable cars and lifts offer the highest standards of safety and comfort. A precedent-setting highlight is the ARLBERG CARD, a reusable, high-tech ski card that provides non-contact, automatic access to the region’s ski lifts. Some 305 kilometres of marked descents, covering all levels of difficulty; 200 kilometres of challenging deep-snow, off-piste runs; snowboard fun parks; carving areas; permanent race tracks; and countless cosy mountain huts for congenial get-togethers ensure plenty of variety and never-ending fun.
Snowboarding
Once David, now Goliath
The Arlberg area, once primarily known as a freeriders’ haven in the international winter sports scene, now also boasts a fantastic facility for park fans – STANTON PARK. The varied and challenging set-up is every snowboarder’s dream. Thanks to its ideal location beside two ski lifts, the unique freestyle arena is easy to reach without having to wait in long queues. And because STANTON PARK is set right next to the bars and restaurants on the Rendl terrace, you can still take in all the daredevil goings-on even when you stop for a break.

St. Anton am Arlberg – the birthplace of Alpine skiing

The missing link has been completed …

Arlberg’s newest connection – a lift between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz

Opening in the 2016/2017 winter season, the Flexenbahn lift will make skiing in the Arlberg area even more varied and skier-friendly. The new connection between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz allows skiers to reach all the resorts in the Arlberg region on skis – turning Ski Arlberg into Austria’s largest interconnected ski area!

Skiing in the Arlberg region is set to become even more enjoyable! The new cableway link on the Vorarlberg side of the Arlberg massif, between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz, as well as new cableways constructed in 2016 – the Trittkopfbahn I and II and Albonabahn II cableways – involving a total investment of 45 million Euros, are completing the final ‘missing link’. Starting from Zürs, the Trittkopfbahn I lift takes passengers to the new intermediate station, from where skiers can either continue to the new top station of Trittkopfbahn II or use the new Flexenbahn to carry on to Alpe Rauz in Stuben. From there, the Albonabahn II – likewise brand new – is available to take skiers on to Stuben. Furthermore, skiers starting out from Alpe Rauz can conveniently explore the St. Christoph and St. Anton skiing areas. This means that all resorts in the Arlberg skiing area – St. Anton and St. Christoph, Stuben, Zürs, Lech, Oberlech, Schröcken and Warth – are easy to get to on skis. Here in the Arlberg region, home to Austria’s largest lift-connected ski area, winter sport enthusiasts can enjoy no fewer than 305 km of downhill slopes and 87 lifts and cable cars, guaranteeing pure, unadulterated skiing at its very best!
