The Ski Resort

The tradition-steeped ski resort St. Anton am Arlberg is a pioneer considering winter sport. Here´s the place where Hannes Schneider founded the first ski school back in 1921. He also invented a totally new driving technique that replaced telemark skiing and made the parallel skiing to what it is today. The association provides a total of 350 kilometers (211 miles) of runs.

Snow machines are available. Hence, even if nature isn´t willing to treat the area with snow you can be sure to find best snow conditions from the beginning of December to Mid-April what makes it to an expanded season.You have two options starting in St. Anton: Take the trails in the valley at Rendl or head towards Gampen/ Kapall and Galzig. A great descend area in form of blue runs welcomes beginners above the timberline at Rendl´s summit. These are runs away from the hassle where you can enjoy your own little slice of the mountain and don´t have an audience when you are trying to learn. Once you feel more comfortable on your skis, try to race others on the giant slalom race course and the speed run. Your only way back to the valley is the red marked Rendl- slope (Nr. R1).The trails at Gampen/ Kapall and Galzig are a signature portion of this mountain and offer a seemingly endless variety.

You´ll find runs for abilities and levels in form of blues, reds and blacks. In Gampen is a great beginner area where novices can practice first curves. There are more easy runs at Galzig. Go ahead and explore the average difficulty slopes like the FIS- run Gstand (No.37) at Kapall as soon as you have a little bit more knowledge. Grab the Valluga gondola to experience the longest slope in the resort starting at the Valluga summit. It tops out at 2650 meters (8694 feet) and takes you back to base, past the mid-mountain restaurant Ulmer Hütte and through the Steißbachtal. Expert skiers may take the black descends Kandahar-Kapall (No.42), Fang (No. 34) or Kandahar-Galzig (No. 52).A great alternative: Head towards St. Christoph at Galzig. Ride chairlift Arlenmähder to find the top station from where you have access to Valfagehr trail to Stuben. From Albonagrat is the fourth part of the ski resort accessible. Those intermediate trails are usually not too crowded. Stuben itself boasts great but short training runs for ski beginners.Thanks to the common ski pass you can actually enjoy the trails in Lech Zürs and Klostertal.
