The Arlberg ski-region

The Arlberg ski-region spans approximately 50 km² (including open ski terrain) and extends to include more than 1,500 m up to its highest elevated spot, the Valluga peak (2,811 m).

More than 280 km ski-runs have been developed. In addition, skiers will also find close to 18 km deep powder snow and corn snow runs in the Arlberg ski-region.

The longest run at 8.5 km leads through a difference in altitude of 1,350 m from the Valluga peak to the Ulm cabin up to St. Anton at Arlberg in Tyrol.

The entire Arlberg ski-region can be accessed with one single ski pass!

Winter hiking

70 km winter hiking tours are ploughed especially for our guests. They lead you either through the enchanting Verwall valley, to Nasserein or to St. Jakob at Arlberg.

70 km of prepared hiking paths add to the sports programme for Nordic walking and jogging.

Snowshoe hiking

Trudge through winter country sides in deep snow with a trained guide.
Just relax and forget about the stress at home. Enjoy the relaxing effects of snowshoe hiking through powdery winter country sides in the Tyrolean Arlberg region.

The glorious peace and quiet and the magical winter backdrop ensure that your experience while snowshoe hiking through the Arlberg region is an unforgettable event.

Cross county skiing

The Arlberg holiday region includes approx. 40 km of cross-country ski runs that have even been awarded the cross-country ski run seal of approval by the state of Tyrol.

Key factors that were considered when awarding the seal of approval were the high level of snow safety, the good quality of signposting of the routes, the number and lengths of the runs with various different degrees of difficulty as well as the parking options for day guests.

The runs in Stanzer Valley, the Verwall Valley and the high-altitude run in St. Christoph promise to be a pure delight for cross-country skiers.


The nature toboggan course, 4.3 km in length and illuminated, in St. Anton, leads from Gampen to Nasserein.

From Gampen, the course extends 4.3 km straight down into the valley.
While running the course, tobogganers overcome 500 altitude meters in approx. 15 minutes.

Horse-drawn carriage ride

How about a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride in the snowy Verwall Valley?
Enjoy the winter magic, find peace of mind and simply feel good. Pure unadulterated nature! Then a short stop at the cosy Verwall Inn for coffee and cake.

Sleigh rides must be booked in advance and take place in the peaceful Verwall Valley. The route runs from the horse shelter opposite the Hotel Mooserkreuz to the Verwall Inn.
Stroll to the department point and look around the western part of our community, the “Oberdorf” (upper village), or catch the free ski bus that will conveniently drop you off just before the meeting point.

A sleigh tour lasts an hour (return). There is also the option of stopping off for half an hour at the Verwall Inn (must be agreed beforehand – duration ca. 1.5 hours).
