St Christoph

Austria

The pretty resort of St Christoph is small but perfectly formed and is part of the bigger and more well known St Anton ski circuit. The resort itself is a delightful cluster of historic buildings, restaurants and exclusive hotels, but it’s the huge Arlberg ski area that is the big draw here.

The Town

St. Christoph is a one-of-a-kind location; set in an open snow bowl, the traditional village is a hidden gem and is still relatively unknown. Relatively quiet and ski-in/ski-out, St Christoph is fantastic for families, but is also part of the vast Arlberg ski region that Austria is so well known for. Just a short drive from bustling St Anton and cosmopolitan Zurs and Lech, those who stay in St Christoph truly do get to experience the best of all worlds.

The Skiing

Take on the technical challenge of the infamous World Cup slalom piste, the Gran Risa, or head across to the 'Hidden Valley' of Lagazuoi, one of the most memorable runs in the region surrounded by frozen waterfalls and soaring rock walls. For an off-piste challenge there is plenty to explore with a mountain guide, including the extensive skiing of Arabba and the Val Mezdi. For those looking to put some miles on the clock, the Sella Ronda, which can be skied in both directions gives you a wonderful introduction to the spectacular mountainscapes of the Dolomites, taking in the famous peaks.

Virtually crowd free, you almost feel like you’ve got your very own private ski lift just a few steps from your front door. The nursery slopes are equally as close so the resort ideal for parents and kids alike. Returning clients tell us that St Christoph has a certain fairy-tale charm that draws them back year after year, and with its easy connections to the rest of the Arlberg, you can visit St Christoph every year and always have plenty of new runs to try out. Take the Piz La Ila gondola from the village centre and you're transported right in to the heart of the Alta Badia ski region. From here you can ski gently rolling terrain over to San Cassiano and Armentarola, or across to Corvara and the entry point to the extensive Sella Ronda route for those looking for more of a challenge.

The Rodelalm and Rodelstall are rustic old mountain huts, which serve Tyrolean classics with bags of atmosphere on the side. The Alm is a great spot for hearty lunches on the sunny terrace and the Stall is particularly popular on Tuesday and Thursday evenings when there's night-time tobogganing.
