St Christoph in Austria Resort Guide
Definitely one of our favourite resorts and is home of the Austrian ski schools association.
The ski resort is directly linked to St Anton by the ski pistes and by resort shuttle. St Christoph is located on the Arlberg pass between St Anton and Zurs. Being linked to the St Anton means that guests in St Christoph have a vast ski area to explore. The resort has reliable snow both early and late season given the altitude and its location in the Arlberg. The resort has ski in ski out facilities which means more time on the mountain that queuing for lifts and bus transfers. The slopes towards the bottom of the mountain are perfect for beginners and intermediates looking to learn from scratch or just to brush up on techniques before heading further up the mountain to the much more advanced runs. The ski area is joined to the vast and imperious St Anton ski region with all abilities catered for with a much larger skiing range.
Most properties are ski in ski out
Accomodation & Après Ski
St Christoph is one of the smaller resorts in the Arlberg ski area with hardly any buildings actually in the village. So as you would imagine the apres-ski entertainment is very limited here but there are some interesting things to see including the 600 year old wine celler in the Arlberg Hospiz Hotel.
The restaurants are mainly hotel based but non guests can also enjoy the food and beverages on offer. If after a week of skiing your looking for other winter activities to enjoy guests can also partake in cross-country skiing and winter hikes.
If you are looking for lively apres-ski we would suggest heading to St Anton as the ski resort is renowned for its great nightlife with many bars and restaurants, live music, ski huts and much more! The neighbouring ski resorts of Lech and Zurs are easily accessed by road through the dramatic Arlberg pass.
You can party in St Anton after skiing and take the free bus back to St Christoph. You can also take a taxi which isn't too expensive.
St Christoph is a very popular lunch destination and lunch on the rerraces is a must.
