Unsere Ski- und SnowboardlehrerInnen passen die Auswahl der Pisten eurem Können an. Entspanntes Skifahren am Arlberg, mit deinem persönliche Ski- und Snowboardlehrer und Guide.

Bitte haltet hierfür mit eurem Versicherungsberater Rücksprache. Im Zweifel empfehlen wir den Abschluss einer Mitgliedschaft beim Österreichischen Alpenverein – diese Mitgliedschaft hat eine umfassende Versicherung für den freien alpinen Raum. 

Bei Ganztages-Reservierungen wird der Ski-/SnowboardlehrerIn oder Guide eine Pause vorschlagen. Je nachdem wo ihr euch befindet, auf dem Berg oder in einem der Dörfer auf eurer Route. Der Lehrer oder Guide kann auch gerne Reservierungen für euch vornehmen.

FAQ'S

Are you wondering what makes the ski area in St. Anton am Arlberg so special? For us, quite clearly – the legendary off-piste possibilities and countless variant runs, that makes St. Anton a true paradise for freeriders. And yes, we admit it – when it snows, our feet tingle too and we can’t wait to finally be on the mountain. We share this contagious enthusiasm with you during off-piste guiding. Depending on your skills, we will choose the best route and show you the most beautiful descents in the open ski area. Your safety is always our top priority. 

The ski pass is not included in the ski lessons. Ski passes are available at the valley stations of the cable cars. 

Please consult your insurance advisor for this. In case of doubt, we recommend taking out a membership with the Austrian Alpine Association – this membership has comprehensive insurance for the free alpine area. 

For full day reservations, the ski/snowboard instructor or guide will suggest a break. Depending on where you are, on the mountain or in one of the villages on your route. The instructor or guide can also make reservations for you. 

Freeriding on the Arlberg, an adventure that many are looking for.  Choose and ride your own “line” through narrow couloirs and steep slopes – once you reach the bottom, a big grin is included. Jumps over rocks with and without 360ies or backflips. Freeriding requires a good physical condition and good skiing technique. Sometimes you have to “earn” these special lines, i.e. climb up with skins, in order to then ski the fantastically unobstructed slopes. The descent in deep snow feels almost better. 

For off-piste bookings the avalanche safety equipment is included. For off-piste skiing it is essential to bring/rent:backpack with shovel, avalanche special and search device (Pieps). 

We recommend (wide) freeride skis and (wide) touring skis with the appropriate skins for off-piste ascents. Snowboarders can ascend with splitboards. In the local sports stores you can rent freeride and touring equipment (ski & snowboard).

Off-Piste Guiding und Freeriden: bis zu 7 Personen. Die Gruppengröße ist begrenzt, da für unseren Guide Sicherheit oberstes Gebot ist (wir bewegen uns im freien Skiraum und hier ist es teilweise nur schwer möglich alle Teilnehmer im Blick zu behalten).

Heliskiing: Maximal 3 Passagiere pro Flug. Das heißt: 2 Gäste plus Guide. 

Ja, ihr könnt gerne mischen. Bitte beachtet, je nach Geländewahl sind Snowboarder etwas im “Nachteil”. Vor allem bei längerem Querfahren. Ist der Unterschied des technischen Könnens aber zu groß, empfehlen wir separate Guides für SkifahrerInnen und SnowboarderInnen. 

Bitte prüft schon zuhause, ob eure Versicherung auch abseits der Piste greift. Falls nicht, empfehlen wir eine Mitgliedschaft beim Österreichischen Alpenverein, für eine umfassende Versicherung am Berg. 

Generell sollte nie fehlen:

-Helm
-Brillen (idealerweise Schneebrille mit Ersatzgläser oder eine Ersatzbrille)
