The cradle of Alpine skiing

Der weisse Rausch - historischer Skispringer

The 3rd of January, 1901 was a cold day with bright blue sky and marvelous powder snow. Skis, with would mean the world to so many years later, were known since 20 years after an engineer from Norway skied in the snow in front of sceptical looks of locals. On this day a group of fearless ski pioneers started to St. Christoph for a ski-tour. This tour ended in the legendary Hospiz Hotel with a happy round and the foundation of the ski club Arlberg.

30 years later – the ski tourism had already started softly – the film "Der weiße Rausch”, directed by the famous mountain director Arnold Fanck and produced in St. Anton, was presented as great sensation; and enhanced the satisfaction for skiing. Now the ski tourism in St. Anton was not to be detained any more. As direct result of this boom, a hotel with many unwritten stories of the passion of the skiing, his pioneers and his heroes was built.
