One of the best ski regions in the world can be found in Austria. Specifically, on the Arlberg at an elevation between 1300 and 2811 meters above sea level. This was the assessment of the experts of Skiresort Service International in their worldwide evaluation. For the 4th time in a row, the Arlberg ranks among the best ski resorts around the globe. The 2006/07 winter season runs from December 2nd, 2006 to April 22nd, 2007. The five towns have always enchanted guests with their individual charms: The dignified and luxurious Lech – the cultured Zürs – the cozy Stuben – the exclusive St. Christoph – the sporty and cosmopolitan St. Anton am Arlberg. The Arlberg is not actually a mountain, rather it is a pass that connects the Austrian provinces of Tyrol and Vorarlberg. Winter sports enthusiasts require only a single lift pass for the entire region. This Arlberg Card is the ticket to a snow paradise with 83 mountain railways and lifts, over 270 kilometers of prepared slopes and 180 kilometers of deep snow runs. Free ski busses run within and between the towns. Sunny terraces invite you to enjoy an après ski, a wide range of activities such as ice skating, curling, ice carting, tobogganing, cross-country skiing, winter hiking and horse-drawn carriage rides make the winter vacation an experience for the entire family. Even in the SUMMER, the Arlberg is a popular destination for mountain climbers, hikers and people who love the natural beauties of the Arlberg. From comfortable apartments and guesthouses for families to world-class hotels, top-notch ski schools and child care, quaint alpine huts and gourmet restaurants: the Arlberg has it all. The towns of the Arlberg offer excellent flat rate packages before Christmas, in January and for sunny skiing in April as well as an event calendar packed with high points.
