Austria's Best Ski Resort 2016
The Flexenbahn cableway will open in winter 2016/17 and will make skiing at the Arlberg even more varied and comfortable. With the help of the new link between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz, skiers will be able to reach all ski locations on the Arlberg easily and comfortably on skis – from St. Anton and St. Christoph via Stuben, Zürs, Lech and Oberlech through to Schröcken and Warth. This increases the diversity and hence the winter sports fun at the Arlberg, reaching an incredible dimension – the Arlberg skiing area will become the largest contiguous skiing area in Austria, with 305 km of downhill slopes and 87 lifts and cableways available to winter sports enthusiasts. www.flexenbahn.ski
