Unlimited possibilities in fresh winter air of St. Anton am Arlberg
St. Anton is part of the Arlberg area of five ski resorts. The Arlberg is considered to be a legend. Why? The answers lie in the history of this extensive ski region. It is full of historical milestones and outstanding personalities. 190 miles of ski runs, Austria’s largest interlinked ski area, fifth in the global rankings. Combined with almost 125 miles of backcountry terrain. A formidable choice for skiers, and one that has acquired a worldwide following over the decades. Especially in avant-garde ski circles, the Arlberg is considered to be a “once in a lifetime destination”.
The five classic destinations of St. Anton, St. Christoph, Stuben, Zürs and Lech have written yet another chapter in ski history. Thanks to four new lift systems opening in December 2016, they now form Austria’s largest interlinked ski area. The rise to being Austria’s No. 1 ski resort and No. 5 worldwide is the logical consequence of a collective desire for the Arlberg region. The respective characters of Lech, Zürs, Stuben, St. Christoph and St. Anton am Arlberg may be different, but their enthusiasm for skiing and uncompromising commitment to quality have united the five villages since the beginning of the 20th Century. The ski culture has been ever-present for almost 100 years. The region owes its status as “Birthplace of Alpine Skiing” to a long and rich tradition.
The Run of Fame – It offers a particularly impressive means to sample the resort’s new dimensions. The spectacular ski circuit leads from Rendl in St. Anton am Arlberg, via Zürs and Lech to Schröcken and Warth. 52 miles of ski runs over a challenging 60,000 ft in altitude difference form the cornerstone of this challenge. Those that rise to it will experience the “Best of the Pistes” at Arlberg. To complete the ambitious program in one day is one possibility. The other is to take more time and relish the scenic charms this route has to offer. The „Hall of Fame“ is also celebrated in collective fashion at the top cable car station of the Flexenbahn and middle station of the Trittkopfbahn.
