    Ski the Arlberg Region

    The Arlberg region is one-of-a-kind. It unites incredible skiing and Alpine culture at its best.

    A winter vacation in the Arlberg region is filled with superlatives. The region, which spreads between the provinces of Vorarlberg and Tirol in the mountainous west, is Austria's largest ski area and the fifth largest in the world. 190 miles of slopes earn the Arlberg this accolade and entice visitors from a whopping 50 countries to pack their bags each winter. On top of that, 125 miles of deep snow freeride runs await more adventurous skiers and snowboarders in the breathtaking backcountry.

    88 lifts connect the five villages that make up the Arlberg's heart and soul: Zürs is the only place in Austria that offers heli-skiing and has a history of attracting the international jet set to its elegant slopes. Sporty and lively, St. Anton is the birthplace of iconic Alpine skier Hannes Schneider and full of local charm. Lech is Arlberg's epicurean brain, with an established gourmet food scene and plenty of arts and culture hidden inside its wood-paneled chalets (the Arlberg has the highest density of award-winning restaurants in Austria).

    St. Christoph has the longest-standing history of hospitality, thanks to a hospice dating back o the 1300s, which was since transformed into an exclusive resort, a haven for foodies and oenophiles, a concert venue, and an art gallery. The smallest of the bunch, Stuben, tempts visitors with an idyllic, quiet atmosphere high up in the mountains.

    Locals of the Arlberg region are expert skiers and carry on the long tradition of ski schools that helped the region to worldwide recognition. Around 1,000 ski and snow sports instructors can help anyone, from absolute beginner to experienced outdoorsman, take their training to a new level. It's no surprise then that the local Ski Club Arlberg (one of the worlds oldest!) has won 83 medals between its members. An extraordinary number of Olympians and World Championship skiers call the Arlberg's pristine slopes their home.

    If Alpine Gemütlichkeit were quantifiable, the Arlberg region would score top marks as well. Beyond the miles of slopes and ambitious entertainment, there's a sense of welcome and belonging that draws guests to return year after year.
