Montafon Ski Resort Guide

About the Resort

The Montafon Valley - which contains 11 resorts, is not very popular with the British because of its location. It is a bit remote and not easily accessed by the airport at Salzburg. In the summer months you can drive over the Arlberg Pass into Galtur and Ischgl. Ski resorts in the Montafon Valley are not restricted to High Montafon. Schruns and Tschagguns are two alternative ski venues, offering a wealth of beautiful slopes. In winter Bierlerhohe is a good launch pad for ski tours and there are high snow-sure cross country trails totaling 16 miles on or around the frozen lake. One of High Montafon's greatest assets is in providing skiing for all levels from novice to professional. You can also enjoy mono skiing and snow trekking and sleigh riding. Or visit some of the 12kms of mountain hiking trails.
