YOUR WINTER FAIRY TALE ON THE ARLBERG

The worldwide fascination of the Arlberg can be quickly explained:

The awe-inspiring grandeur of the mountain world is present all around here. You are almost in awe of the mighty mountain peaks, whose rugged rocks are hidden under thousands of snow crystals. A white-glistening mountain panorama, which unifies the magnificent beauty of nature.


Arlberg is Austria's largest connected ski resort

200 km of high alpine deep snow descents and 305 km of downhill runs. A winter sports paradise with fast-paced speed tracks, sun-drenched family slopes and the finest powder snow. The most modern ski lift systems on the famous slopes of St. Anton, Lech or Zürs make your skiing holiday so extremely convenient.

Exclusive skiing pleasure from the air

Heli-skiing in Lech is unique throughout Austria! Take the helicopter up to the summit and head into pure enjoyment in powder or firn snow. Every freerider's dream. Experienced skiers fly to the "Mehlsack" summit and intermediate skiers to the "Schneetäli-Orgelscharte". Winter sports couldn't be more fascinating!

Snowshoe hiking on the Arlberg

The silence when snowshoe hiking on the Arlberg is really awesome. Only the snow crunches under your feet. White sugared fir trees. Snow crystals glistening in the warm sunlight. Be as one with your surroundings and breathe in the crystal clear air with every step. You might discover the trail of a deer or rabbit in the freshly snow-covered winter landscape and rejoice in the glowing eyes of children.
You do not need any previous knowledge for snowshoe hiking. And the selection of tours around the Arlberg varies from easy to challenging. 

Romantic horse-drawn sleigh rides and alpaca adventures

How about a little winter romance? You can experience your very own winter fairy tale on a horse-drawn sleigh ride in Lech am Arlberg. Snuggled up in warm blankets, you will travel at leisurely pace through the picturesque and trendy scenery of Lech and into the snow-covered mountain landscape. Alpaca trekking tours in Lech, Montafon or the Brandner Valley are also a special adventure. The hike, lasting several hours, with the good-natured animals is an unforgettable experience for both young and old.

Cross-country skiing in the Kloster Valley

Breathe in and out and let nature work its magic on your soul. Experience the winter wonderland with all your senses and train your entire body at the same time. Cross-country skiing is the ultimate winter sport for connoisseurs. 
You will find very well prepared cross-country skiing trails with various challenges around Klösterle. The Alfenz-Dalaas cross-country trail is the longest in the Kloster Valley and runs for 8.4 kilometres through the valley. Beginners to cross-country skiing make their first attempts directly in Klösterle at the Schattahalb trail or the Sunnahalb trail. These two circuits offer the possibility for classical style and skating and take around half an hour.

Tobogganing fun for the whole family

Jubilantly whizz down into the valley on two bends and simply enjoy yourself! When action meets nature, the whole family has fun. Maybe you want to combine your winter hike with tobogganing fun? There are plenty of opportunities for tobogganing around Klösterle. The toboggan run at Sonnenkopf, which leads from the mountain station to the middle station, is very popular. Toboggans can be hired from the sports shop at the valley station. The "Wald" toboggan run leads from the former station trail up to the Rodel hut, where you can refresh yourself after a 40-minute hike. Plenty of fun and excitement awaits the little ones on the toboggan slope at the Fuchslochbühel lift directly behind the church in Klösterle. Who can finish faster with the snow tube? Regular fun-filled toboggan evenings take place here on illuminated slopes, where you can get a free mulled wine or tea on presentation of your guest card!
