This small village is set just below a high pass between Zurs and St Anton, strategically placed on the traditional route between Tyrol and Voralberg. Skiing is close to the hotels, with cable-car and ski bus links meaning that the village has better access to the full range of Arlberg ski fields than Lech or St Anton. St Christoph is noticeably removed from the ski-society circuit and offers a quiet, friendly atmosphere with limited evening activities generally spent enjoying delicious meals or relaxing in the hotel bar – just how most visitors to this distinctive refuge would like to keep it.
