ARLBERG SKI AREA
A modern holiday resort that has retained its traditional appeal. Hospitality and Tyrolean customs are as much a trademark of the village as its international, cosmopolitan character. And not only does it offer a colossal backdrop of peaks and popular (skiing) mountains, it also has all the comforts you would expect from an international holiday resort.
Those who travel to St Anton in the winter enter a snowy paradise which has enjoyed a world-wide reputation since hosting the Alpine Ski World Championships in 2001.
High holiday standards, a superlative winter sports area, excellent hospitality, a Ferris wheel style cable car, special weeks such as the "Ladies First" feel-good weeks, the finest gourmet food, the new multi-functional sports centre arl.rock and numerous events promise an unforgettable winter holiday. With 60 to 80 sunny days throughout the winter season and guaranteed snow until at least the end of April ,St Anton am Arlberg offers the very best prerequisites for a deluxe winter holiday
Skiers and snowboarders can access the high slopes quickly and easily via the new Galzigbahn lift, which whisks visitors from the village of St. Anton to the most diverse section of the resor with not only easy wide slopes for beginners but also fabulous views of the surrounding mountains. Further lifts give intermediate and expert skiers the option to travel all the way up to the Schindlerkar and the 2,811m Vallugaspitze, the highest point in the resort.
For freestyle skiers and snowboarders there are several funparks, including the famous Stanton Park. Further highlights include a permanent race course as well as countless huts, restaurants and après-ski bars. In the Rendl area of the resort there is even the only via ferrata fixed-rope climbing route in Tirol open in winter. This climbing trail with a steel rope anchored into the rock for safety and a series of steel handholds and footholds leads all the way up to 2,732m. It is hard work, but the views at the top more than make up for the effort. And the best thing is that from the top you can ski back down into the resort through wide powder fields.
350 kilometres of marked ski runs, superbly prepared slopes for all ability levels, and 200 km of off-piste and challenging steep slopes and deep-snow ski runs, snowboard fun parks, carving areas, permanent racing circuits and numerous cosy meeting places ensure variety and enjoyment.
New Arlberg cableway link between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz!
The Flexenbahn cableway will open in the winter of 2016/17 and will make skiing at the Arlberg even more varied and comfortable.
