Reputed to be the snowiest ski area in the Alps.
Boasting a snow record that is reported to be the snowiest in the Alps, the geography of Warth is blessed, as winter weather systems stream down from Switzerland and Germany and hit the first notable peaks in the north east of Austria. The result is that extraordinary quantities of snow deposit on the Warth ski area annually.
Now lift linked to the Lech-Zürs ski area, Warth is the northernmost ski area in the sensational Arlberg ski region. With the newly developed Flexenbahn between St Anton and Zürs, it is now possible to ski from Warth, right through to the Rendl – St Anton ski area in the far south, on ski pistes and lifts.

The ski area in Warth itself is mainly north-facing and offers a good range of intermediate ski pistes. The better skiers and snowboarders are sure to sample the off-piste which is often deep in Bregenzerwald powder snow. Much of the off-piste terrain is lift accessed but there are a few long traverses allowing access to more remote off-piste terrain. For mile-hungry intermediates, the lift link to the Lech-Zürs ski area in the south opens a whole new range of terrain.
Beyond Warth, one of the best ski regions in the Alps awaits – the Arlberg is remarkable for the snow record, the diversity of terrain and the incredible snow record. The first stop after Warth is Lech-Zürs which offers fantastic intermediate skiing. Beyond Lech-Zürs is Stuben am Arlberg which has possibly the best off-piste in the Alps, whilst a little further, St Anton has some incredible steep and off-piste terrain.
Serious snow means epic powder skiing in Warth.
Head over to the next valley and take a flight from Lech.
Warth is part of the vast Arlberg ski region.
The resort of Warth is an attractive, compact village with a number of mid-size hotels and a small range of shops. There is a real focus on architecture and quality in this part of Vorarlberg – buildings are understated and wonderfully stylish. In terms of Arlberg resorts, Warth would be similar in size to Zürs and Stuben but bigger than St Christoph and is much smaller than Lech and St Anton.
There is no road link from Warth to Lech am Arlberg during the winter months, although they are separated by just a few kilometres. Instead, Warth has neighbouring villages to the east and west. Bregenzerwald resorts are located to east of Warth and are famed for their cheeses and architecture and snow!
