In 2016/17 the Arlberg ski area expanded lifts to allow skiers and snowboarders to explore more with saving time and the hassle of catching a bus. This was the birth of the Flexenbahn Cableway
This has made the Arlberg skiing area the largest contiguous skiing area in Austria!
About The Flexenbahn Cableway
With a total investment of €45m, we would say it is money well worth spent. From Zürs, Trittkopfbahn I leads to the new intermediate station, from where skiers may either continue to the new top station of Trittkopfbahn II or use the new Flexenbahn to carry on to Alpe Rauz in Stuben.
From here, the other new cableway, Albonabahn II, will invite skiers to continue to Stuben. In addition, skiers starting out from Alpe Rauz can conveniently explore the St. Christoph and St. Anton skiing areas.
This means that all resorts of the Arlberg skiing area – St. Anton and St. Christoph, Stuben, Zürs, Lech, Oberlech as well as Schröcken and Warth – will be easily and comfortably accessible on skis. With the new cableway link, skiers on the Arlberg – Austria’s largest contiguous skiing area – will have easy access to a total of 305 km of downhill slopes and 87 lifts and cableways.
Here are a few more reasons to ski St Anton this year.
