    The Arlberg valley is the first barrier for north west weather in the Alps. This guarantees plenty of snow all season long. Along the Arlberg valley, several ski resorts such as Saint Anton, Zurs, Zug, Lech, Oberlech, Stuben and Saint Christof offer a vast off piste skiing area.

    All these resorts are linked by a ski bus, which makes this area ideal for a star ski safari.
