The pretty resort of St Christoph is small but perfectly formed and is part of the bigger and more well known St Anton ski circuit. The resort itself is a delightful cluster of historic buildings, restaurants and exclusive hotels, but it’s the huge Arlberg ski area that is the big draw here.
St. Christoph is a one-of-a-kind location; set in an open snow bowl, the traditional village is a hidden gem and is still relatively unknown. Relatively quiet and with ski-in/ski-out accessibility, St Christoph is fantastic for families but it's also part of the vast Arlberg ski region that Austria is so well known for. Just a short drive from bustling St Anton and cosmopolitan Zurs and Lech, those who stay in St Christoph truly do get to experience the best of all worlds.
