View from the Ulmer Hütte on St. Christoph

With 1,765 meters above the sealevel the winter resort of St. Christoph is among the highest located ski resorts in Austria. It lies directly on the border of Vorarlberg at the Arlberg pass and just 500 meters above St. Anton.

Although St. Christoph is a pure holiday resort today, it has a long history that goes back at least to the 14th century. Here you will find the Hospice St. Christoph which served as a shelter for travelers protecting them of the vagaries of the weather.

Consisting of only 25 buildings St. Christoph is not very large. Thus, it is inversely proportional to the skiing opportunities, because these are huge:

Ski History Was Written Here

At least a little fraction of it: On January 3rd in 1901 St. Christoph contributed to ski history: Sealed on a tablecloth the first Austrian ski club was founded here. Among the founders was Hannes Schneider, who was the inventor of the Arlberg technique.
