Undiscovered gem & off-piste Mecca.
Part of the epic Arlberg ski region, Stuben gets breath-taking levels of snow and the powder and off-piste skiing are rated as the best in Austria, possibly the Alps by the experienced and well-travelled skiers and snowboarders.
Stuben is wonderfully authentic and historic. The resort centre is small and facilities tend to be located in the hotels but the quality, atmosphere and charm of Stuben, especially when buried under metres of snow are out of the ordinary.

STUBEN AM ARLBERG SKIING
On paper Stuben relies heavily on its access to the St Anton and Lech-Zurs ski areas. The new Flexenbahn gondola has linked now lift linked Stuben / St Anton with Lech-Zürs, a link that was previously only possible by road. Theses ski areas dwarf the Stuben ski area in terms of ski lifts and ski pistes but for those in the know, Stuben off-piste skiing is rated as the best in Austria and maybe the Alps. The snow record in Stuben is incredible, the region around Stuben gets more snow than any other location in Europe. Just three lifts out of Stuben and you are at the Albonagrat, a ridge that feeds endless off-piste routes back down toward Stuben.
It is the length of the ridge and the variety of routes that makes Stuben the best out there for off-piste. Local guides are a must but even with the locals from St Anton, its instructors, those dodging work for a powder day in Stuben, all descending on the Albonagrat after new snow, there are endless routes to find fresh tracks. And for those wanting the ultimate, there is heli-skiing. The nearby ski holiday resort of Zürs is the only place (along with Lech) where heli-skiing is permitted in Austria. With its avalanche transceiver testing device in the resort centre, Stuben really is the off-piste capital of Austria.

STUBEN AM ARLBERG RESORT
Stuben is also all about quality - the limits on development in Stuben have retained the style, character and quality of Stuben. The centre of the resort is wonderfully atmospheric, whilst the roofs are often bending under the weight of the snow pack.
There are a couple of shops and a range of hotels and guesthouses in Stuben, whilst its huge stone walls give it a real alpine feel. There are few more atmospheric resorts in the region and even fewer that experience the snowfall of Stuben.
Experience the slopes as if you are already there with Piste View. The interactive Piste View player lets you select slopes and lifts as you descend the pistes.
