On miracles and extraordinary people
There’s no need to gosearching for miracles – you’re surrounded by them!
Snow is simply miraculous: billions of snowcrystals merge to form flakes that floatdown gently like leaves and cover everything in a bright white blanket.
Snow is very powerful in the Arlberg region: it shapes the people here, sets the pace and creates living conditions.
Snow challenges people,it makes them fight. Snow is also an ally: it casts a spell over the landscape, makes it seem weight less and graces it with beauty.
The staged winter hiking trail starts directly at the mountain station of the Rüfikopfbahn 1 and stretches across the sunny plateau on the Rüfikopf. At the various stations along the circular trail, you will get closer to the fascinating element of "snow" with interesting & impressive information. In addition, the winter hiking trail presents personalities from the Arlberg who transform adverse conditions into highly emotional winter experiences.
And that’s no miracle, but a success story that has been seen time and again here on the Arlberg...
