It may be tiny, but the 'small but perfectly formed' picture-postcard village of St Christoph, cocooned in a spectacular open snow-bowl, is part of Austria’s No. 1 world-class ski area. At 1800m, it’s 500m higher than neighbouring St. Anton, and is perfectly positioned in the centre of the huge Arlberg ski area, giving easy access to the other villages. St. Christoph enjoys an excellent snow record and as you can see from our main photo above, the pretty, traditional village itself nestles in a picturesque setting, with a blue run down from the Galzig peak running right back to our Chalet Hotel’s ski-room door. Skiers who lunch seriously and can afford it should visit the legendary Hospiz Hotel restaurant or its cheaper neighbour the Hospiz-Alm.
With the new Flexenbahn link opening last winter, all resorts in the Arlberg ski area - St. Anton, St. Christoph, Stuben, Zürs, Lech, Oberlech, as well as Ströcken and Warth are easily and comfortably accessible on skis without he need of a bus making this the largest interconnected ski area in Austria.
