The famous Arlberg region of the Austrian Alps offers 160 miles of prepared runs, 110 miles of off-piste (ungroomed) runs, 85 lifts and 4,900 feet of vertical drop, all on the same lift pass! St. Anton will be our base for the week, the most well-known resort in the region. From there, we can easily ski the nearby resorts of St. Christoph, Zurs, Lech and Stuben. Some of the best wide-open, groomed runs in Europe await us.
Basically, almost all days are spent skiing and enjoying other activities. The following is the description of a typical day of the tour. But keep in mind that every day will be different and memorable!
Begin your day in St. Anton, ski to St. Christoph for lunch, schuss down to Stuben in the afternoon, and still make it back to St. Anton in time for dinner. Or take the bus to Zurs and ski over to Lech, a picturesque village with a history dating back to the 12th century. Each day, you will find something different to do and see, both on and off the slopes.
For apres-ski fun, make sure you ski to the Mooserwrt or Krazy Kangaruh, located on the slopes above St. Anton. Every afternoon, skiers pack into these bars until they are so crowded that the only place to dance is on the tables! If you want to go sightseeing, cities like Innsbruck and Salzburg are easily accessible by train.
Your Christmas will be spent in the small, family-run 3-star Hotel Rendlhoff located in the center 300 meters from the lifts. After a wonderful stay you will return to the airport and return home.
