STUBEN SKI HOLIDAYS

Stuben is one of the few remaining undiscovered gems in the Alps. The village is immaculate, with a real historic feel, sits on the edge of the best ski area in Austria and beneath some of the best off-piste skiing to be found in the region. For all the visitors who are drawn to the Arlberg ski area above St Anton and St Christoph, few are ever persuaded to venture slightly further to Stuben. The fact that Stuben is possibly the most charming of all the local villages and has one of the best and least stressful ways to access the superb skiing in St Anton is a huge bonus. On top of that Stuben offers a genuine off-piste and the village is a true ski and boarder town. Off-piste guides and heli-skiing brochures are everywhere. Stuben is a wonderful village for serious snow-sports enthusiasts.

STUBEN SKI HOLIDAY INFO

First and foremost Stuben is a serious ski and boarder town. It readily accesses the best in-bounds ski region in Austria and sits beneath some of the best off-piste terrain to be found anywhere. The lift infrastructure in Stuben is limited but it accesses all the right places. Guests in Stuben can be well into the heart of the St Anton ski area whilst guests in St Anton a re still queuing for lifts. The village of Stuben is compact and charming and whilst the main road through the Arlberg runs close by, the village has a real tranquillity about it as it stretches along the river that dissects the buildings. The main lift out of Stuben is close, as are most facilities as Stuben is compact. There are some charming bars and restaurants dotted around the village.

Stuben village is small and neatly compact, with easy access to the slopes, it is often quicker to access the slopes of St Anton via Stuben, in preference to battling the masses in St Anton itself! A newer and faster chairlift in Stuben, would be an improvement, which I hope the piste managers will note. It can be very cold in January, as the chairlift from Stuben is in a shaded bowl, to the extent you are offered blankets by the chairlift attendants, before commencing your journey, so be warned !!!!!!!!!!!!

Once on the superb slopes the cold is forgotten and as well as the slopes around Stuben & St Anton, it is also worth skiing to the next chairlift and taking the ski bus to Lech, which departs every 20 mins (do not wait for a bus in Stuben itself, you could have a long wait in the cold!!!) Once in Lech this opens up the slopes of Lech, Oberlech, Zurs + Zug as well. The Ski circus route is worth taking for skiers who like to cover the miles. Overall a great skiing destination for intermediate skiers.

Stuben is compact and as such all the three main bars have a great feel to them - not much choice, but a good night out can be had with ease. I have been to offer resorts who boast great apres ski, whose bars are dull in comparison.
