The skiing

Warth-Schröcken’s local slopes are spread across a broad, mostly north-facing mountainside, and are ideal for high-speed cruising. None of the pistes are particularly steep, but there is masses of off-piste and a high chance of finding powder.

 

The long-awaited gondola link between Warth and Lech opened in December 2013 and transformed the already interesting ski area into one of the most exciting in Austria.

The resort

Warth and Schröcken are two tiny unspoilt villages at separate ends of the local ski area. Our accommodation is in Warth, which has the better facilities and is more convenient for the slopes.

 

Warth has a couple of lively umbrella bars at the bottom of the slopes but, on the whole, après-ski is quiet and revolves mainly around the hotels.
