Austrian Arlberg is really a double-edged sword
are referring to the Arlberg province, the one that snuggles up to the
Swiss frontier not far from Feldberg, and the Arlberg pass. The latter
is the high route between Switzerland, through the Arlberg province
and on towards the rest of Austria. It is this pass that will be the
focus of this domain. Why? Because perched on the Arlberg pass sit
some of the finest ski resorts in Europe, and that makes them some of
the finest ski resorts in the world. We refer here primarily to Lech,
Zurs and Stuben in the Arlberg province and the resort of St. Anton in
Tirol. The latter bills itself as St. Anton am Arlberg.
figures is the best way to get the message across that although it is
in the Austrian Tirol, it sits high on the Arlberg pass, and as such
enjoys the great Arlberg pass snowfall. Fair enough. For the moment we
are going to limit our information to these resorts, but we will soon
expand this domain to include other resorts and activities to be found
in the Arlberg. One also must not forget that there are four seasons
in Austria, and that in summer, one can enjoy fresh, clean mountain
air and hospitality at a fraction of winter prices. And pricing is not
all you should consider if you are mulling a mountain-based holiday.
There are no crowds, and never is there a better opportunity to not
only familiarize yourself with nature, but with the natives as well.
By the way if you have had an enjoyable summer holiday in the Austrian
Arlberg, or anywhere else in The Alps for that matter, we would love
to hear from you.
