Few ski regions are as iconic as the Austrian Arlberg. The massive, interconnected zone spans over the Arlberg Pass from St. Anton to Stuben, Lech and Zürs. Some 82 chairlifts service a vast amount of terrain.
The Arlberg is frequenly referred to as the birthplace of modern skiing, because ski pioneer Hannes Schneider developed many modern skiing techniques while teaching out of St. Anton in the early 20th century.
But while the region has a century of ski history, it is as vital today as ever, thanks to an amazing combination of snowfall, terrain and legendary nightlife.
