Laura Robinson - Reservations Manager"St Christoph is a lovely little resort just 15 minutes away from St Anton. It's a great option for those guests who want a quieter resort with plenty of ski in/out properties, whilst also having the option to enjoy the St Anton nightlife."
ST CHRISTOPH AM ARLBERG
St Christoph ski resort has incredible access to the whole of the Arlberg area. Its ski-in-ski-out location means that it is perfect for those who want to make the most of the skiing and be the first ones on the mountain every morning! St Christoph is a quiet area with only a few hotels and restaurants, including one of the best mountain restaurants in the Alps – the famous Hospiz Alm.
St Christoph rose to fame in the 14th century when a shepherd called Heinrich Findelkind built a hospice in order to provide shelter from the menacing environment. There is, of course, a bit more than that there now and you may just find that the tranquil St Christoph is the perfect spot in the Alps to enjoy a fine wine next to a roaring winter fire.
This is the ideal resort for keen snow-loving couples as it is far quieter than the après ski capital of the world, St Anton. Those that like the idea of staying up the mountain but are still interested in the après scene of St Anton will have to be prepared to get a bus or taxi back to St Christoph – this only takes around 30 minutes. However you wish to spend your ski break though, this is a beautiful resort with incredible skiing and is sure not to disappoint!
SKI AREA OVERVIEW
At 1800m St Christoph is one of the highest ski resorts in the Alps. It is also located right in the heart of the Arlberg ski area, home to some of the world’s best skiing and next door to one of the world’s most famous ski resorts – St Anton. With unparalleled access to around 350km of pisted runs, St Christoph is the perfect place to stay for keen skiers interested in getting the first tracks on fresh groomers each morning.
