Description

Join a small group of skiers and head into the snow-drenched wilderness of the Austrian Alps in search of fresh rewarding challenges.

Targeted for advanced skiers, you can join if you can comfortably ski in all off-piste conditions such as narrow couloirs and steeper terrain. This group may occasionally ski tour to find the perfect powder. This is a faster group so you will need a high level of fitness.

And as well as having a good level of fitness, you have a good grasp of snow safety and rescue procedures.

Your overall skiing experience should be a minimum of 15 weeks with at least 6 weeks of off-piste skiing with a guide.

We’ll explore the Arlberg regions of St Anton, Stuben, Zurs and Lech, a mountain massif that stretches out across the Austrian states of Vorarlberg and Tyrol. It is home to breathtaking scenery and world-class backcountry skiing.

It is the largest skiing area in the whole of Austria, and holds one of the biggest reputations in the Alps. Its long history has developed its reputation as being the cradle of alpine skiing.

We’ll focus on St. Anton, which has a long history of skiing that has fully developed into the present. It hosted the Alpine World Ski Championship in 2001 and is constantly listed as one of the best regions for skiing in the world.

Away from the excellent groomed runs, St. Anton is home to a great number of backcountry routes.

St. Christoph is a mountain hamlet, which in the 14th century a local shepherd built a hospice for travellers crossing the Arlberg pass. At 1,800 meters high, St. Christoph is one of the highest resorts in the Alps.

Stuben is a charming hamlet resting in Arlberg, where you can discover the origins of alpine skiing. Located in the heart of the massif, its accessibility is top-class and is arguably the region’s powder capital.

Zürs is particularly desired for its excellent backcountry skiing, and has been home to a number of Olympic champions. And with very few trees populating its slopes, there are clear views of the nearby peaks.

Lech am Arlberg is a ski resort that rests on the riverbank of Lech. Recent years has witnessed the resort become one of the world’s top ski destinations, and home to several ski champions.
