If there is one thing Warth-Schröcken ski resort doesn't lack, it's snow: with an average of 36 feet of fresh snow per year, it is one of the snow-safest resorts in Europe. Far into springtime, it boasts perfect conditions to carve through the snow. Added snowmaking guarantees 100% of snow safety. A new 8-person gondola installed in 2017 makes access to the slopes from Warth as well as Schröcken even easier.

Warth-Schröcken is part of the largest ski area in Austria: Ski Arlberg. Skiers can hop on Auenfeldjet to get to Lech, and right onto Stuben and St. Anton from there. With only one lift ticket you get access to a total of 305 kilometres (approx. 190 miles) of slopes. 

Within Ski Arlberg, Warth-Schröcken is a bit of a hidden gem for families and athletic skiers. There are many blue runs, several ski schools, and Pauli's Ski Arena for kids right by Salober valley station. Ambitious skiers should try the black runs around Saloberjet. "Gamssprung" or "Flühli" are true challenges even for experts.

Thanks to the large amount of natural snow, Warth-Schröcken is a true back-country paradise. The area between Steffisalp-Express, Jägeralp-Express, and Saloberjet provides perfect powder pleasure. One of the nicest routes is Pfarrer-Müller-Tour, going from Warth over Lech to Schröcken. Free workshops with local guides give you all the information needed to guarantee a safe backcountry adventure.

Freestylers can go wild at Funslope. There are features for all skill levels. Snowboarders will enjoy Stanton Park. Another highlight is the skimovie run, where a video camera automatically films your run down the slope. You can later watch it online. For exciting competitions, try the parallel giant slalom. Another option is Salober race track. If you just want to see how fast you're going, w10 run at Kuchl lift features a speed check
