It is the exact place where Alpine skiing was invented at the beginning of the 20th century. Already in 1901 the Arlberg Ski Club was founded in St. Christoph. The skiing technique developed at the Arlberg modernised skiing and reached international popularity also through ski-movies like “White Frenzy”.

The Arlberg has always been considered the cradle of Alpine skiing. Today, 85 modern ski-lifts lead to Austria’s biggest ski area with more than 280 km of perfectly groomed pistes.
