COMEBACK OF WINTERLOVE(RS)

2021/22

The winter season 2021/22 in St. Anton am Arlberg is all about high alpine, sporting experiences and culinary delights. For our guests as well as for the local hosts, this season should serve as a return to a common enjoyable winter.


St. Anton am Arlberg, the cradle of alpine skiing, is considered a pioneer of modern winter sports. The mountain village is part of the largest interconnected ski area in Austria with more than 300 kilometres of marked slopes, 200 kilometres of freeride terrain and 88 lifts and cable cars. St. Anton am Arlberg will host top-class events once again in the 2021/22 season, including the Women’s FIS European Cup, the "New Orleans meets Snow" music festival and iconic ski race, “The White Thrill", on the last weekend of the winter season.

 

The safety of our guests, however, is even more important than the undeniable pleasures that skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, tobogganing and winter hiking bring. Information on current Covid-19 safety measures can be found here.

Skiing and alternatives


Crunching snow under your feet, a pleasant mountain climate and altitude training all rolled into one: winter hikers have 80 kilometres of winter walking trails to choose from in and around St. Anton am Arlberg. There are various options, such as the Verwall recreation area with the Wagner Hut, a hike to Almfrieden Mountain Guesthouse (1,530 metres) above Pettneu or between the mountain stations of the Galzig and St. Christoph cableways. If you fancy sampling the inimitable experience of a rustic snowshoe hike through snow-covered landscapes, you should book the services of a trained guide.

 

St. Anton am Arlberg, together with St. Christoph, Stuben, Lech, Zürs, Warth and Schröcken form Austria’s largest inter-linked ski area and the fifth largest in the world. Holidaymakers can discover Arlberg’s incredible skiing dimensions along the spectacular “Run of Fame ” ski circuit. No matter where you access this ski tour - information boards and signposts that honour local skiing legends inform skiers about this 85-kilometre-long route and its 18,000 metres in elevation difference. The mountain station of Flexen cable car between Stuben/Rauz and Zürs also houses a "Hall of Fame", where visitors can experience historical moments and Arlberg ski stars in a free exhibition.

 

Jump off the lift and strap your skis to your back: The starting point of one of Tyrol’s most beautiful winter via ferrates can be found next to the top terminal of the Riffel II lift on Mount Rendl (2,645 metres), high above St. Anton. Secured in its entirety by steel rope, ski-touring fans can start the 850-metre-long high alpine ridge crossing from here.  Views extend over the entire Verwallgruppe Mountain Range and Lechtal Alps - sometimes even as far as South Tyrol on clear days. The heart of every ski enthusiast will skip a beat once they arrive at the Rossfallscharte Ridge (2,732 metres), where the downhill run through backcountry terrain beckons. Guided tours and equipment can be booked at St. Anton am Arlberg ski schools.
