Leo Trippi's catered chalets in Schrocken for your luxury ski holiday

Luxury in Schrocken: Snowiest ski area in Europe

Schröcken-Warth is one of the most notable ski areas in Bregenzerwald in Vorarlberg and you can be sure of snow. It has been named the whitest ski area in Europe by a leading UK website! In the winter season of 2013/2014, Warth and Schröcken am Arlberg’s 68 kilometre ski area became part of ski area Arlberg, one of the world's most famous resorts. Now the "Auenfeldjet" connects Warth-Schröcken with Lech, and from there it continues to Stuben, St. Christopher and the famous St. Anton. Lech is close by and surprizingly quick and easy to reach for skiing. If you are a skier and stay at one of the luxury chalets, you hop on the skibus next to the chalets to reach the next skilift in 5 minutes. Up with that fast lift, the Saloberjet, ski down only one slope and you are already at the connecting lift that brings you directly to the top of the Lech Ski area (Oberlech). Even when you stay in Lech you can not reach that point in such a short time. The only difference is that you can not go out in Lech in the evening because you have to get back with the lifts on time. But if you are a sporty ski-loving person, not interested in the in-crowd glamour show off, or want to have easy-going holidays in a luxury catered chalet with your family, you are perfectly placed right in Schröcken.

The quaint villages of Warth and Schröcken are situated 10 kilometres apart, on either side of the ski area. More than 700 years ago, the Walsers settled in the valleys of Vorarlberg, after migrating as farmers and herders from the Swiss Upper Valais. Getting to Schröcken-Warth is quite easy. It takes between an hour and 45 minutes and 2 hours 15 minutes from Friedrichshafen, Memmingen and Zurich airports. Dorfbus Warth-Schröcken is absolutely free and travels every 5 to 30 minutes between the villages and ski lifts. There are several snow sport schools that care passionately about the next generation of skiers with a playful introduction to the sport. These include "Paulis Kinderland" in Warth and "Paulis ski area in Schröcken". The much loved "Warther family run" is an educational journey through the world of piste rules. Ski experts can take you on a historic tour between Warth-Schröcken and Lech which follows in the tracks of 19th Century local ski pioneer Pfarrer Müller. The seasonal average snowfall is more than 10 metres because of its geographical location at an altitude between 1,500 and 2,050 metres. The north and east slopes promise the best quality slopes and snow until springtime and ensure hours of fun for families, skiers, off-piste skiers and freeriders.
