Arlberg has a lot to offer, and naturally that comes at a price. A one-day ski pass for adults during peak season costs a cool 53 euros (state: 2017). While that is undoubtedly a lot of money, Arlberg does have an outstanding offer of diverse runs for all skill levels, combined with one of the most modern mountain rail systems in the world. Hence, such a price does seem appropriate.
Less appropriate: the prices for food and drinks at the ski resorts. Especially at St. Anton and Lech, you have to dig really deep into your pocket for a meal at a mountain hut, or to enjoy some après-ski. Costs for accommodation are also high, although it depends on where you're staying. If you want to go on holiday to Arlberg, you should therefore make sure to shop around a bit. Naturally, prices at St. Anton, Lech, and Zürs are higher than at St. Christoph, Stuben, Zug, Warth, or Schröcken.
Another thing we don't rate well in our reviews are costly car parks at the valley stations, which prevail at St. Anton and Lech.
Yes, you get a lot of value for your money at Arlberg, but it is still a lot of money.
