Where the first ski left its mark

Zürs am Arlberg

As they explore the fresh snow, skiers find their gaze captured by the Zürsbach stream snaking its way down into the valley. Follow the flow of the water from the powder snow on the peaks all the way through to the ski runs, the village centre and even the local hotels.

Skiers in Zürs are always at the heart of the action. Not only is the region home to elegant hotels and gourmet restaurants, it also offers perfect snow conditions at Austria’s largest connected ski area – leading right to your front door. With all hotels offering “ski-in, ski-out”, meaning that guests can strap on their skis right in front of the hotel, before heading out to the slopes and lifts, it’s clear why Zürs enjoys such a wonderful reputation among winter sports fans.

First fun on the slopes, then delight in Zürs

The cradle of Alpine skiing

Zürs boasts a terrific history of winter sports dating back to the turn of the 20th century. In addition, its people were pioneers when it came to exploring the potential of winter. Key players included Viktor Sohm, who held the first skiing lesson for locals in 1906, and the team around Sepp Bildstein that built Austria’s first surface lift in 1937.

The entire region is now firmly established as one of the world’s elite winter sports destinations. 200 km of high-Alpine powder runs, 305 km of perfectly groomed ski runs, lifts featuring heated seats, and 16 hotels and B&Bs with a 4 or 5-star rating – the facts speak for themselves.
