Eight kilometres up the road from St Anton, the pretty village of St Christoph is no more than a handful of large hotels at the foot of some gentle slopes. It is a popular base with families and couples looking for tranquil surroundings, the convenience of doorstep skiing and quick access to the amazing Arlberg ski area.
The St Anton region has more than 100 years of skiing tradition and is considered by many to be one of the best ski areas in the world, encompassing not only St Anton but also St Christoph, Lech, Zurs and Stuben. With over 260km of pisted runs and challenging off-piste opportunities, the Arlberg area has something to keep even the most advanced skiers and boarders entertained.
Outstanding! This ski area will provide all that an advanced skier could wish for with a large and varied amount of pisted runs that are backed up by extensive off-piste opportunities. The world-famous Valluga off-piste terrain attracts expert skiers from across the globe.
The ski area offers a wealth of blue and red runs to test and improve good intermediate skiers. The choice of lengthy runs is plentiful allowing you to explore the entire Arlberg region.
St Christoph is the more suitable option for beginners thanks to its nursery area next to the Sporthotel. The well-respected Arlberg ski school teaches beginners here before coaching them onto the blue Maiensee I & II runs.
This is one of the best free ride areas in the world with lots of steep terrain and natural jumps. There are terrain parks in Lech and Zurs which have a half-pipe, quarter pipe and rail slides. This area is a great destination for good snowboarders.
Children are well catered for in St Christoph. The Sporthotel provides free childcare, as well as babysitting for younger babies and children (0-3yrs). There is a special ski kindergarten for children 3-5yrs situated just outside the Sporthotel. Please contact us for prices and to book. Group ski lessons for children 6yrs+ can also be pre-booked.
The friendly hamlet of St Christoph is no more than a handful of large hotels at the foot of some gentle slopes. This is the place to head for sedate, relaxing evenings in, with perhaps an occasional evening outing to St Anton by taxi.
