Ski Lifts in St Anton am Arlberg
St Anton’s ski lifts have been significantly improved in recent years with substantial investment in impressive new gondolas and state of the art chairlifts to increase capacity and reduce queuing.
St Anton Ski Lifts
The entire Arlberg ski region is served by an efficient high-speed lift system of 94 ski lifts carrying over 123,000 skiers per hour. Around 50 per cent of this ski lift capacity serves the slopes in St Anton where the ski lifts open between 8:00-8:30am and run until 4:00-4:30pm. The ski lifts to Gampen (1,850m) and Kapall (2,330m) were first improved for the 2001 World Championships with the addition of a number of high-speed covered chairlifts then by the addition of an 8-person gondola from Nasserein to Gampen, which makes Nasserein a more convenient place to stay and a peaceful alternative to the busier St Anton village as well as taking pressure off the main lifts in St Anton.
A 6-person chairlift rising to a new lift station at 2,320 m to the east of the Ulmer Hütte mountain restaurant was added in 2003/04, replacing the Arlenmahder draglift and opening up the Arlenmahder slopes and providing alternative easy access to the Ulmer Hütte and the long blue run (14) to Alpe Rauz as well as taking pressure off the Schindlergratbahn triple chairlift.
The old cable car from the centre of St Anton was replaced in 2006 by the impressive new Galzigbahn cable car station with glass panel construction to showcase the state of the art mechanism used to detach the 8-person gondolas without slowing the high-speed cable then reattach them to the cable with a full payload.
On Rendl a 6-man chair replaced the long Gampberg draglift and more recently in 2009/10 the old Rendelbahn gondola on the outskirts of St Anton was decommissioned and replaced by an impressive new lift station and 8-person gondola located next to Sport Jennewein in the centre of the village, just a short walk from the Galzigbahn.
Alpe Rauz on the edge of the St Anton ski area is the gateway to both Lech-Zurs (via the fast Flexenbahn lift) and to the Albona ski area above Stuben (via the Albonabahn). Since 2013, the Audenfeldjet lift above Oberlech connects the ski areas of Lech and Warth-Schrocken, adding a further 66km of pistes and even more off-piste to the area covered by the Arlberg lift pass, and accessible from St Anton.
