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 vast ski area offers something for everyone, with beginners and children just as much catered for as advanced powder junkies. Without doubt when visiting St Christoph you have to visit the renowned Hospiz Alm restaurant. It is ‘the’ place to go for the very finest local cuisine and fine wines, the perfect compliment to your Austrian ski holiday.
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 is very easy for parents and kids alike. Returning visitors claim St Christoph has a certain fairy-tale charm that just draws you back year after year.
Tots to teens will be in their element here. You’re only ever a few paces from the piste here so kids find it easy and therefore enjoy their time on the slopes a whole lot more. Older kids will enjoy going out for pizza with the SnoZone.
Located just 2 1/2 hours by road from Zurich airport and 1 1/2 hours from Innsbruck.
