Winter in Vorarlberg

A natural scenery of impressing beauty that touches the senses, blending majestic peaks and gently undulating hills.

What’s the plan for today? Hitting the slopes? A snowshoe ramble followed by a toboggan ride or mounting to a lodge on foot, with a promise of dazzling views and savoury regional delicacies? A trendy après-ski concert or museum visit? Winter in Vorarlberg in Austria’s very west is as colourful as it gets.

A natural scenery of impressing beauty that touches the senses, blending majestic peaks and gently undulating hills. There is a vast choice of excellent ski terrain, managed by highly professional lift companies.
No wonder, since the art of skiing was discovered here on the Arlberg and further developed ever since. An abundance of natural snow and ample artificial snowmaking facilities provide top-notch conditions on the runs and free-ride slopes.

At some resorts, early birds can set out before the regular lift operating hours and carve their first turns on the freshly groomed runs. A network of scheduled and ski buses serve the different valleys. Thanks to short distances and regional ski pass networks, you can easily discover several ski areas.

Inspiring Views
Winter hikers and snowshoe ramblers as well find delight in the snow. Guided tours and walks, either during daytime or at night at torchlight, are organised regularly. Cross-country trails are almost everywhere. And there is a surfeit of toboggan runs, some even with night-time facilities.

Runs and slopes all carpeted in enticing white. Some like to mount conveniently by lift or cable car, before descending on skis.
