Did you know? The Arlberg is the cradle of alpine skiing! Six sportive friends skiing from St. Anton to St. Christoph decided to found a ski club on 3 January 1901, which was to help more people to discover the beauties of wintery Arlberg. This ski club still exists to this day as the world’s most exclusive winter sport club with members coming from all around the world. Skiclub Arlberg already hosted its first ski races three years after its establishment, back when there weren’t any lifts or groomed pistes. Over the course of the following decades, numerous top athletes, some of which even won gold at the Olympics, got their start with this club.
