Ski connection Warth-Schröcken/Lech-Zürs

Ski connection from Warth-Schröcken to Lech-Zürs

Winter holidays in the Alps in Austria

Vorarlberg’s biggest ski area

The idea has existed for over 40 years and was finally realised in the winter of 2013/2014: The ski connection from Warth-Schröcken to Lech-Zürs will be opened. The Auenfeldjet, as the new connection will be called, impresses with its facts and figures.

The history

The Auenfeld is high plateau rich in history that hides the story and secrets of the settlement Tannberg. As it once did, the Auenfeld will now bring the villages of Lech and Warth closer together. The pioneers of skiing come from these places.

Pastor Müller brought the first skier to Warth in 1894, Hannes Schneider, born in Stuben am Arlberg, revolutionised skiing techniques with the Arlberg school and the first lift was built in Zürs in the year 1937. Arlberg is now world famous as the birthplace of Alpine skiing.

Ski pass information

A few different ski pass options are available for the Auenfeldjet: skiers who hold the Ski Arlberg ski pass can also use the ski area Warth-Schröcken beginning in the winter season 2013/2014. The Ski Arlberg ski pass will also be sold in Warth-Schröcken.

In the future, a choice will be able to be made in Warth-Schröcken: the Ski Arlberg ski pass for the entire Arlberg region including the Warth-Schröcken region or ski passes exclusively for the ski area Warth-Schröcken. The use of the Auenfeldjet and thus Ski Arlberg is not included in either the Warth-Schröcken ski pass or the three-valley pass.

Environment

The Auenfeldjet is a perfect example of a gentle connection between two ski areas. With the new connection, which will have a few support points on the western edge of the Auenfeld, care was taken to interfere with nature as little as possible.

The construction of the rails was conducted with the greatest possible conservation of the environment: trees and high Alpine vegetation have been retained. Water and spring protection areas were not affected. Interference with the natural landscape has been restricted to the construction itself. As there are no new ski slopes or opportunities for descent, the habitat of the animal kingdom has also not been disturbed.

Look forward to an even bigger and more diverse ski area in the winter of 2013/2014 and send your non-binding booking enquiry for your stay at Hotel Post in Bezau right now.
