Description

Come and join a small group of skiers and head into the wintry wilderness of Austria in search of fresh powder lines.

Targeted at intermediate off-piste skiers, you can join if you can handle moderate off-piste terrain and have a good level of fitness, this will be a more relaxed pace than Level 3.

Your overall skiing experience should be a minimum of 10 weeks with at least 3 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 and that is home to a dazzling 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.
