  • Winter Climbing Route

  • St. Anton offers the first and only Winter Via Ferrata in the Tyrol, with stunning views and a vertical perspective you never thought possible: The 850 metres long, multi-pitch Arlberg Climbing Route at Rendl Ski Resort.

    See Arlberg Mountain beyond the crowds with a tour into the pristine backcountry: Get away from the hustle and bustle, and enjoy the tranquillity of the scenic backcountry in a ski tour. A highlight in the true sense of the world is the Winter Climbing Route at Rendl Ski Resort.

    The Winter Climbing Route departs from Riffelbahn II Top Terminal, 2,650 metres above sea level, and takes you along Riffelgrat Ridge to Vordere Rendlspitze Peak, 2,816 metres above sea level and atop Rossfallscharte Notch, 2,732 metres above sea level.

    The 850 metres long, multi-pitch Arlberg Climbing Route is a ‘Via Ferrata’. Via Ferrata is Italian for "Iron Way" and consists of an engineered vertical pathway featuring permanently fixed cables for safety and metal rung ladders to ease your movement over the rocks.

    St. Anton offers the first and only Winter Via Ferrata in the Tyrol, with stunning views and a vertical perspective you never thought possible. Best of all, St. Anton's Via Ferrata does not require any special climbing skills; however backcountry touring experience is strongly recommended and you have to be a strong intermediate to advanced skier / snowboarder.

    At the end, the climbing efforts are highly rewarded with awesome downhill runs – either across Malfon Valley to Pettneu or via Rossfallalpe and Moos Valley back to St. Anton am Arlberg.

    Apart from skis or snowboard for the final descent, which you have to carry along during this two and half hours long tour, the technical climbing route involves the use of harness and climbing hardware, sturdy boots and rock scrambling skills.

    The Climbing Route is readily accessible by Rendlbahn Gondola; special uphill rates are available.
