News – 2016/17

St Anton is being linked to Lech-Zürs to form Austria’s biggest ski area. A new 10-person Flexenbahn gondola from Rauz, near Stuben, goes over a ridge to the mid-station of the new Trittkopf gondola above Zürs, from which point there’s a piste down to Zürs. You ride the Flexenbahn back – there is no piste down to Rauz. Also from Rauz, a new 10-person gondola takes you to near the top of the Stuben ski area – cutting out the need to use two successive slow, cold, double chair lifts from Stuben. The lower of these chairs will remain in place for access to the slopes from Stuben, running up to the mid-station of the new gondola.

Summary

St Christoph is barely a village – it’s a small collection of plush hotels, and a less plush, good-value chalet hotel, near the top of the Arlberg pass and sharing slopes with St Anton and Stuben. It all feels rather isolated once the lifts close. The lower slopes here offer a quiet area for beginners and a fast quad chairlift takes you to the heart of St Anton’s slopes. It’s a popular lunch spot, too.
