Ski schools and sports shops
"Ma learnt nia us" is a dialect expression meaning "you’re never too old to learn." That’s certainly true of winter sports activities. And our sports shops will ensure that you have all the right equipment.
The techniques may have changed, but the buzz is still the same.
Ski Arlberg is not only renowned for its snow and its lift complex; the ski schools and instructors have also built up an international reputation over the generations. An awful lot has changed: the traditionally rigid Arlberg style of skiing has been relaxed, so that it’s no longer necessary to lock your knees together during short-swing parallels. Also, our instructors are not as keen on drinking schnaps as they used to be! But the exhilaration you get from skiing in the fresh mountain air remains unchanged.
Specially for children: Hotel Adler is offering a VIP service together with Salober ski school on the Salober, only 700m away from the hotel and enjoying the sunniest spot in the entire ski area. The ski instructors pick up the children from the hotel and bring them back in the afternoon. Every Friday is the traditional children’s ski race.
We would request parents to book their children into ski school before the start of the holiday.
With a large number of mountain guides and instructors at their disposal, the Warth ski school, located at the bottom station of the Steffisalpe, is the place to go for all technical or practical advice on snow sports.

There are certainly some of you who can still remember sliding around on wooden skis. It’s hard to compare what we had in those days with what’s available now: an enormous variety of snow sports equipment, and all of it available to hire or buy at the sports shops in Warth-Schröcken.
Sport-Jug has shops at the bottom stations of the Saloberkopf, Jägeralpe and Steffisalpe lifts. Cross-country ski equipment can also be hired on the Salober. Sport Jug works together with sports shops in Lech-Zürs and St. Anton, in case you need help when you're there.
Sport Strobl next to Hotel Lechtalerhof also offers fashion items.
