Whilst many skiing enthusiasts are widely familiar
with the ski terrains of Austria, for most the concept of alberg1800 RESORT can
be quite complex. This season the well-renowned resort of St Anton developed
the new ski lift 'flexenbahn' connecting the resort to its surrounding
villages, Lech, Zürs, Stuben and St. Christoph. It is right here in the heart
of St Christoph where you will find arlberg1800 RESORT, a collection of
luxurious chalets, a historic hotel, chapel, fine dining restaurants, big
bottle wine cellar and most recently a 26 million euro art gallery and concert
arlberg1800 RESORT is located 1800m above sea level
benefitting from heavy snowfall throughout the season. The Arlberg region is
the largest ski area in Austria with 340km of pistes to explore. Amongst the
beauty of the surrounding villages guests are of course drawn to the buzz of
the après bars in St Anton. Shuttles and taxis run between resorts making St
Christoph a desirable location for when you’re ready to escape the party and
return to the pink paradise.
The resort offers a whole host of activities on and
off the slopes. Some spend their days relaxing in the resort spa whilst others
are able to embark on adventurous hikes discovering new mountain trails.
Amongst all of arlberg1800 RESORT’s offerings the one standalone experience
enjoyed by all is the luxury of the 5* Austrian cuisine. Hosting five award
winning restaurants, indulgence is unavoidable at arlberg1800 RESORT with the
daily displays of fine dining dishes presented continually to guests.
