Since winter 2016/2017 Zürs and Stuben/Rauz will be linked by the Flexenbahn cableway

Since December 2016 Ski Arlberg became Austria's largest interlinked ski area! Together with the new Trittkopfbahn I and II and Albonabahn II cableways and entailing a total investment of EUR 45 million, the new Flexenbahn cableway closes the loop – skiers can now reach all resorts on the Arlberg quickly and easily.

The Arlberg ski area now boasts an incredible 305 km of slopes and 88 lifts and cableways and connects St. Anton and St. Christoph, Stuben, Zürs, Lech, Oberlech, Schröcken and Warth.

 

The new Flexenbahn

Located on the Vorarlberg side of the Arlberg, the new cableway offers comfort, a high capacity and a unique view! The Flexenbahn is operated by Flexenbahn GmbH, which is owned by Stubner Fremdenverkehrs-GmbH and Ski Zürs AG on a 50/50 basis. With 47 cabins, each accommodating ten people, the single circulating cable system transports winter sports enthusiasts to the mountain station in just six minutes and can transport up to 2,400 persons per hour. The Flexenbahn covers a distance of almost 1.8 kilometres and an altitude difference of over 562 metres, with the large panorama panes offering an unobstructed view into the Klostertal Valley and towards the Arlberg pass / St. Christoph. Comfortable cabins and a stunning panorama – you can look forward to an unparalleled ski experience!

Sustainable changes for a healthy environment

Modernisation work is carried out on the Arlberg in harmony with nature and the environment. The start-up of the Flexenbahn means there will be 120 fewer bus trips every day. There will also be fewer vehicles in the villages and many individual journey times will be reduced. The construction project was planned in great detail and with the utmost care – and as a result no additional pistes were required despite the new lift facilities.

Skiing on the Arlberg is even more pleasurable following the latest modernisation project. A unique region which has been attracting tourists from around the globe since 1885, the (environmentally) conscious decisions taken with the future in mind and the exceptional pioneering spirit of the local people are among the reasons for its success. And now it is not just a passion for winter sport that links the villages around the Arlberg ‒ but also the fabulous pistes stretching as far as the eye can see!
