Now linked by a new cable car since 2016/17, the extensive slopes and varied terrain of the Arlberg holds the status as the largest linked ski area in Austria alongside consistently high snowfall. Since the first skiers ventured onto the slopes, St. Anton has developed into an international ski resort, a mecca for expert skiers and competent intermediates. Village life centres around the attractive pedestrianised main street with a wide selection of restaurants. The après-ski scene is as renowned as the skiing with energetic slope-side live music that continues into the early hours at the many bars and nightclubs in town. More sedate activities include winter walking, snowshoeing and sleigh rides. St. Anton’s more decorous neighbours have copious appeal for all levels of skiers. Luxury knows no bounds in ultra-fashionable Lech, from heated chair lifts to plush accommodation and gourmet restaurants. Above the traditional village, at 1750m, the exclusive enclave of traffic free Oberlech offers doorstep skiing and spectacular views. Just 5km away, at a snow-sure 1720m, the quiet, ultra-chic enclave of Zürs in Austria’s magnificent Voralberg is regarded as one of the most exclusive resorts in the Alps; delight in top restaurants and a natural open-air ice rink.
With extensive slopes and varied terrain, the snow-sure Arlberg boasts 340 kilometres of fully linked groomed runs as well as 200 kilometres of off-piste. The whole area is a mecca for powder skiers and boarders at an altitude always ensuring a thick blanket of snow. St. Anton is a dream for expert skiers and competent intermediates with an exciting array of steep runs and exceptional challenges off-piste. Interlinked St. Christoph offers more leisurely skiing on long, wide red and blue runs and new lift access to the superbly-prepared pistes of the Lech-Zürs-Warth-Schröcken area of fine scenic skiing; tremendous terrain for intermediates. Beginners will find dedicated nursery slopes in Lech and Zürs and gentle progressive runs.
