Apres Ski in Warth-Schroecken

Warth-Schroecken Villages

Warth and Schroecken are small snowsure villages situated approximately 10km apart at either end of the Warth-Schroecken ski area in southeastern Bregenzerwald and bordering the Arlberg.

Warth (1494m) is a charming alpine village with around 200 inhabitants and accommodation for up to 1,000 guests. Although Warth is only 10km from Lech, the road between Warth and Lech is always closed in winter because of avalanche risk, but it’s easy to ski between the villages, either on-piste or off-piste.

Warth has direct access to the ski area via the 8-seat gondola lift Dorfbahn Warth near the centre of the village. But there are also hotels and other accommodation near the other lift base stations. 

Schroecken(1269m), is a similarly small and pretty village with 240 inhabitants and up to 800 guest beds. If staying in Schroecken you will need to drive by car or take a 10 minutes free ski bus ride to the Saloberjet chairlift at the top of the Hochtannbergpass. Look out for the elevated section of road on stilts – a seriously impressive piece of construction engineering!

While Warth offers easier access to the ski area and a better choice of upscale accommodation, an advantage of staying in Schroecken is that you can end each ski day skiing the easy but enjoyable 5km long ski route – the longest run in Warth-Schroecken – from Korbersee down to Schrocken.

Neither village has much to offer in the way of shops or other activities for non-skiers apart from winter walking, tobogganing and just chilling out in pretty alpine surroundings.

There’s a free shuttle bus (Dorfbus) between Warth and Schroecken and a regular bus service (Bregenzerwald Line 40) linking Warth-Schroecken and Au-Schoppernau (20km).

Other Activities in Warth-Schroecken

Warth and Schroecken are small ski villages so there’s not a great deal to do in winter besides skiing and other wintersports including winter walking, cross-country skiing, dog sledding, snow shoeing and tobogganing.

Bregenzerwald region generally has excellent facilities for other winter sports activities with 300km of cross-country skiing and 200km prepared and well-sign posted winter walking trails. They also make a special effort to ensure good facilities and instruction where needed for dog sledding, snow shoeing and tobogganing. And Warth-Schrocken is no exception.

Use of the ski tracks is free if staying in either of the villages (otherwise EUR 5 daily). Courses can be booked through the ski schools in Warth (Tel: ) and Schroecken (Tel: +43 5583 40045) and cross-country ski equipment can be hired at Sport Schneller (Tel: +43 5519 201) in Schroecken. Au Schoppernau nearby is one of the three largest cross-country skiing areas in Bregenzerwald with 62km of well prepared tracks including 50km classic and 12km skating tracks.

Winter walking

Warth-Schroecken is a favoured destination for winter walking with over 20km of well-maintained winter walking trails through scenic surroundings on the Hochtannbergpass. The walking path from the Kalbelesee to the Korbersee takes about 1 hour and allows skiers and walkers to meet for lunch at the popular Berghotel Korbersee.

Dog sledding

And if you want a break from skiing, cross-country skiing or walking, you can book a husky dog sled ride for adults or children and explore the ski area sitting down. There’s a husky trail from Saloberkopf to Korbersee, which includes a stop off at the romantic Korbersee restaurant. The tour costs around EUR200 and takes 3-4 hours. Alternatively, you can join a husky dog sledding work shop. Each participant has his own sled and 2-3 dogs and after learning some basic commands including how to brake, you set off on your own on a 1km route around Kalbelesee. The workshop costs EUR80 for one person or EUR110 for two people and lasts approximately 2 hours. Tours and workshops available from Marc Van Landeghem (Tel: +43 664 2407 422) www.bauern-stube.at. Once a week, Schrocken Ski School (Tel: +43 664 2525 200) arranges special husky tours for children (EUR 13 per child).


And if you enjoy tobogganing or have not yet tried it, there’s an easy 700m long toboggan run from Hohi in Warth, which is open daily and floodlit at night until 10pm, and the a 500m long Schrockbach toboggan run in Schrocken which is also floodlit at night. You can rent a toboggan in the villages
