Impressive landscapes and untouched slopes have a special attraction
High-Alpine deep snow descents, various terrains, spectacular cliffs and steep gullies - the Montafon in the south of Vorarlberg has everything that off-piste riders dream of in the Alps. The ski areas - especially Silvretta Montafon - provide athletic challenges beyond the prepared routes.
