Trip Details: SSC members, you have been heard, and your requests for a European ski destination have been answered! Plan to join us as we travel to one of the world’s top ski resorts, “the cradle of Alpine skiing”, St. Anton, Austria. This quaint, historic village is nestled at the foot of the Tyrolean Alps (4,278 feet), and was host to the Alpine World Ski Championships in 2001. As part of the Arlberg area of ski resorts, the region includes 94 cable cars and ski lifts with access to 212 miles of groomed trails (43% beg., 41% inter., 16% advanced). There are also 125 miles of deep powder runs. The Kapall, Valluga (9,222 feet), and Schindler peaks provide skiers with close to 4,920 feet of vertical. Blessed with a long, lavish snow season, and relatively mild daytime temps of 20F, a visit to St. Anton is truly the experience of a lifetime!

Our accommodations for 7 nights are ideally located at the family run, 4-star Hotel Arlberg, just steps from the center of the bustling town, boasting a colorful nightlife, and only a 5-minute walk to the main lifts that take you directly into the heart of the vast ski area. A warm family atmosphere along with a new sauna, steam bath and swimming pool are some of the hotel’s highlights, featuring excellent food and a lively lobby bar with entertainment. A daily full European buffet breakfast, and four-course dinner, as well as a wine & cheese reception are included in this package. The train and bus stations are conveniently located in the village of St. Anton and make it easy to explore many other charming locations – Innsbruck is only 106 miles. St. Anton is also considered a destination for cross-country skiers, where you can ski from guest house to guest house on groomed trails. 

BARCELONA EXTENSION (optional) - The capital, and 2nd largest city in Spain, Barcelona, is the perfect place to spend four days after a week in the Austrian Alps. Barcelona is located on Spain’s northeastern Mediterranean coast, and has a rich and captivating history. As host to the 1992 Olympic Games, many renovations were made, and these changes have translated into a modern, yet incredibly old city, focused on both preserving and celebrating the ancient. This beautiful city is filled with outdoor markets, restaurants, shops, museums, and churches. The core center of town is focused around the “Ciutat Vella” (old city), and provides days of enjoyment for those wanting to experience life in Barcelona, while nearby beaches provide sun and relaxation during long periods of warm weather.  A fantastic area for walking is known as “Las Rambles”, just steps from our 4-star accommodations, where limitless entertainment can be found while strolling the picturesque walkways.
