More than 100 years ago, the first ski course ever was held on the Arlberg. Ever since, this alpine region has been cultivating the art of skiing, and the art of hospitality even longer.
The villages are picture-pretty and pleasantly small in size. Lifts and cable cars can be reached either on foot or by ski bus. At many sites, the harmonious blend between traditional and contemporary (timber) architecture catches the eye. Whether lift station or hotel, bus stop or residential building: nowhere else in Austria will you come across so many contemporary buildings which fit seamlessly into the surroundings and are genuine master pieces in terms of energy efficiency.
Ski Areas in Vorarlberg
There is a choice of numerous ski areas, some are manageably small and family style, others awesomely large. The lift operators are committed to quality and comfort. All ropeways and lifts meet the state of the art. Innovations such as heated chair lifts come from Vorarlberg. Doppelmayr, the world market leader in ropeway construction, has its company headquarters in Vorarlberg.
Owing to its location on the northern rim of the Alps, with an abundance of natural snow, skiing fun is guaranteed. Altitude is another asset: many ski areas are located above 2000m in altitude. Up at the top, glorious views unfold. The landscape is truly breathtaking, but not as craggy as at higher altitudes.
