Winter sports alternatives on the Arlberg

Of course, if the ski lifts are right at your feet and you can explore the perfectly groomed slopes from your room, it makes sense to spend your ski vacation on the two boards that mean the world to some people. But it does not have to be. Our charming little Walser village Warth has so many beautiful corners to offer off the slopes, which want to be discovered by you in the most diverse ways.

Tobogganing fun on the Arlberg

A rapid toboggan run brings out your inner child again and is simply unbelievable fun. Big as well as small toboggan fans get their money’s worth at the two toboggan runs in Warth. And the best: they are only a stone’s throw away from our house.

Toboggan run
at the village square Warth

The ascent with the village cable car is comfortable, the toboggan run back to the village center is all the more racy. The toboggan run can be used daily during lift operating hours with a valid ski pass or toboggan ticket.

Toboggan run
“From the Höhi”

Only a few steps next to our house is the 700m long toboggan run idyllically situated in the Höhenwald. It can be used daily until 22.00 o’clock free of charge. The highlight for families and sociable friends are the twice-weekly tobogganing parties including tractor ride and warming punch or mulled wine afterwards.

Toboggan run
in Schröcken

In our neighboring community of Schröcken there is a 2-kilometer-long toboggan run that leads from the district of Nesslegg to the village center of Schröcken. A free toboggan bus brings ambitious toboggan fans back to the start. The toboggan run is open every Wednesday evening.

Winter hiking on the Arlberg

Directly from our house you can hike on wonderfully sunny and groomed winter hiking trails partly across the entire village. Our favorite round starts not far from our house: around the idyllic Seebachsee the path leads further into the high forest, where you are guaranteed to hear nothing but the soothing sounds of the forest. A caress for body and soul, and at the end of the path you’ll find a great spot for a yoga flow or two, three strong breaths.

If you prefer longer hikes, the free ski bus will take you to Warth-Hochkrumbach in just a few minutes, where miles of trails on a sunny plateau await you. Our tip no. 2: the winter hike to the picturesque Körbersee is a real feast for the eyes!

Ski touring & snowshoeing

A snowshoe tour and a ski tour are truly a connection between physical activity and peace of mind. A bit unusual at first, you quickly get into the rhythm of the movement, which can clear your mind incredibly. Away from the hiking trails and ski slopes, wonderful spots await, where you can dive deep into the landscape and forget everything around you. Our mountain guides Mathias and Christian will be happy to accompany you on guided tours.

Husyk sleigh rides on the Arlberg

Children’s eyes light up when they experience the cuddly huskies in their element. You don’t have to travel far to feel like a real “musher” for once. Directly at the Hochtannbergpass there is the possibility to drive a husky sled yourself and to experience directly the power of these wonderful animals combined with the unique winter landscape.

Cross country skiing on the Arlberg

Located on the Hochtannberg Pass on a sunny plateau, you will find no less than 4 circuits of all levels of difficulty.
The altitude ranges between 1,600 and 1,700 m and therefore has a particularly effective effect on physical performance and the cardiovascular system. In combination with the unique natural scenery you will experience a wonderful winter adventure.

Ice climbing on the Arlberg

Marveling at a thickly frozen icefall is a natural experience in itself, but climbing up it is another matter. Mathias and Christian will gladly take you to this magical world of ice. You will be amazed at the unusual yet familiar climbing technique and how your body will feel after this sporting event.
