Silvretta Montafon Ski Resort

Silvretta Montafon incorporates 140km of slopes spread between two Austrian valleys, all linked by an increasingly modern and powerful lift system.

Most of the skiing can be found in the Hochjoch and Valisera areas, where there’s a great range of intermediate cruising above the tree line. With some of the most scenic terrain in Austria, as well as some of the most extreme, this is a great area for freeriding and touring. Accommodation is mostly found in the three valley towns of Gaschurn, St Gallenkirch and Schruns, all of which are well linked to the ski area by modern gondolas.

Explore the very best freeride and off piste terrain in and around the resort on one of the two fantastic Ski Club Freshtracks Holidays heading out this winter.

Silvretta Montafon Skiing and Snowboarding

Most of the slopes are open blues and reds, located above the treeline, and these definitely suit intermediates best. Beginner facilities are not ideal, with the main zones located up the mountain at Kapelalpe and Valisera. For more advanced skiers and snowboarders there are some decent blacks by the Nova chair and beneath the Sennigrat chair.

The main attraction for more experienced snowsports enthusiasts is the lift served off piste, 27km of which is in the form of marked, but unpisted ski routes. Head to the top of the Burg draglift for R55 or to the Rinderhütte chair for R44. This is also one of the best resorts in Austria for ski touring and the lift system provides excellent access to numerous freeride routes – which you’ll experience first hand if you join a Ski Club Freshtracks Holiday here this winter.

Silvretta Montafon Resort

There are three main towns to base yourself in – Shruns, St Gallenkirch and Gaschurn. Perhaps the most convenient base is St Gallenkirch as it sits in between the two main Hochjoch and Valisera ski areas, but Shruns and Gaschurn have a better choice of bars, restaurants and accommodation.
