Ski Openings in Vorarlberg

The pioneer of alpine skiing is already in the starting gates for the winter season. The first ski resorts in Vorarlberg will open at the end of November, all the other winter sport resorts in the six holiday regions of Vorarlberg will follow in December.

Date: 6 November 2019

Vorarlberg has a long tradition in ski sport: The foundations of alpine skiing were laid right here more than 110 years ago. This is due to the unique location: Around two thirds of Vorarlberg lie above 1,000 m altitude. Many ski resorts reach heights of between 1,400 m and 2,400 m, with guaranteed snow. The landscape is impressive and imposing but not precipitous, which can be the case that high up. The favourable climate on the Northern edge of the Alps provides plenty of natural snow. This creates a good combination of gentle and challenging slopes offering many different options for all abilities.

Diversity in Vorarlberg

All six holiday regions of Vorarlberg can boast winter sports resorts: From Laterns as well as Bödele above Dornbirn in the Lake Constance region, the Bregenzerwald with its 88 cable cars and lifts, to sustainable Kleinwalsertal with 48 cable cars and the varied Brandnertal. Being high up in the mountains, the Montafon has 75 cable cars and lifts. Vorarlberg can only be described in superlatives: Ski Arlberg is not only the largest ski resort in Vorarlberg but also one of the five largest ski areas world-wide.
