St. Gallenkirch-Gortipohl in Vorarlberg

Sporty recreation is hugely important in St. Gallenkirch-Gortipohl as a hub between Silvretta and Verwall

At the start of the 80s, history was made with the construction of the world’s largest gondola system. Today, the Grasjoch Bahn connects the Hochjoch and the Silvretta to one of the largest ski resorts in Austria with broad pistes and sunny carving slopes. Away from the prepared pistes, you can experience “untracked freedom” in the powder snow. Both beginners and professionals can find their personal “freeride hotspot” on the sweeping deep-snow slope: Marked routes, lots of space to make lines, and less-travelled back-country areas offer the finest powder runs well into spring.

Exciting times await you in St. Gallenkirch-Gortipohl in the warmer months of the year on magnificent high-altitude hikes or adventures exploring the traditional Montafon Maisäß [mountain hut]. With a bit of luck, here you will find the rare Montafon Steinschaf (stone sheep), which has been bred again for a number of years now as part of the valley’s natural and cultural heritage.

The untouched freedom in the Montafon

Simon Wohlgenannt knows the mountains of the Montafon like no other freerider. He has never been bored with them: “The runs are far too diverse. Here I have the opportunity to live my skiing dream.”

Simon has a tip on hand for people new to the region: “Your first stop should be the ski school and/or mountain guide office or the Freeride Centre at the Grasjoch summit station. Here you can get information about the current conditions and maybe a tip as well. In order to obtain an overview of the conditions, it makes sense to start off with a local mountain guide or ski guide.”
