For Austrian charm, an incredible snow record and access to the vast Arlberg ski area, look no further than the villages of Warth and Schröcken.
Some of the steepest and snowiest slopes in the entire Arlberg (there's an average of 11m of snow here each winter) are located in the ski sector above Warth and Schröcken. Numerous black runs are marked on the piste map, all of which are served by an impressive lift system – the piste map is dominated by fast 6-seaters and slick gondolas. There's also access over the Saloberkopf and via the Auenfeldjet gondola to the entire linked ski area with Lech, Zürs and St Anton, with its 305km of linked slopes.
The pretty village of Warth is little more than a hamlet with a couple of small hotels and the same can be said for Schröcken. Therefore, you shouldn't come here if you're looking for lively après ski or a big variety of eating options, instead come here for the snow and a quiet week in beautiful surroundings. Get here via Zürich or Innsbruck, but note the resorts' remote location means the transfer will take at least 2.5 hours.
