St. Christoph

A traditional rustic town with almost limitless off-piste terrain. 

At 1,800m above sea level, St Christoph is one of the highest ski resorts in the Alps, made famous in the 14th century when a hospice was built by the shepherd Heinrich Findelkind to shelter travellers from harsh conditions. Situated between St Anton and Zurs,  St Christoph offers some of the best skiing in the world. The traditional wooden housing in the heart of the Tyrolean mountains makes for a quaint, picturesque setting - the perfect backdrop for a fun, relaxed family holiday.

180km of off-piste terrain opens up an endless world of exciting adventures to be had. With an abundance of great bowls and chutes around Stuben and Rendl, as well as the world renowned powder of neighbouring St Anton, the possibilities are endless, and with the help of a guide you can head to the very top of the challenging Valluga. For those wanting to take things a little easier there is plenty on offer, including the world class tuition of Ski Schule Arlberg.

Indulge in Tyrolean culinary delights served in some of the best restaurants in Austria.

With much of the accommodation in St Christoph being ski-in ski-out, or at most a brief walk from the main lift, shouldering heavy skis is not a problem in this resort. A multitude of restaurants offer the ultimate fine dining experience, often with a classic Tyrolean touch. One such restaurant, the Hospiz Alm Chalet is particularly recommended for its remarkable wine cellar, accessed by a slide. Though St Christoph offers a more refined, relaxed nightlife when compared to its infamous neighbour, St Anton is no more than a 15 minute drive so the option to really let your hair down is also readily available.

St Christoph, St Anton’s cultured cousin as it were, is home to the newly built Arlberg1800 and concert hall. A gastronomic feast followed by an evening of stunning classical music is easily on the cards in this quaint town, and for any art lovers there is also the opportunity to explore the stunning gallery connected underground with the Arlberg Hospiz Hotel.
