Largest contiguous skiing area in Austria
New dimensions of diversity!
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
A new chapter in this history will be written in the 2016/17 winter season: with the new cableway link between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz, the Trittkopfbahn I and II, and Albonabahn II cableways will also be built in 2016, the loop closes. From Zürs, the Trittkopfbahn I will lead to the new intermediate station, from where skiers may either continue to the new top station of Trittkopfbahn II or use the new Flexenbahn to carry on to Alpe Rauz in Stuben. From here, the other new cableway, Albonabahn II, will invite skiers to continue to Stuben. In addition, skiers starting out from Alpe Rauz can conveniently explore the St. Christoph and St. Anton skiing areas. In the opposite direction, they can use the Flexenbahn from Stuben/Rauz to the intermediate station and/or the top station of the Trittkopfbahn and hence continue to Zürs. From there, skiers can continue to Lech and on to Warth-Schröcken. This makes the Arlberg skiing area the largest contiguous skiing area in Austria, with 305 km of downhill slopes and 87 lifts and cableways available to winter sports enthusiasts.
