Impressions From Warth

| Comments

After three hectic days at the ISPO 2019 Björn and me headed over to the small village of Warth in the Bregenzerwald Region of Vorarlberg, Austria.

If “Bregenzerwald” and “Vorarlberg” sound familiar to long-time readers of the blog, the reason is that I have been there with the family three years ago in the summer. We loved our stay and after I saw Warth briefly last year on the MDV Transalp I decided it’d be just the right place to go after ISPO 2019. But as skiing alone is boring and making photos of one skiing alone is pretty difficult, I asked my friend Björn from the St. Bergweh Blog if he’d like to accompany me. Björn is a great Snowboarder and we have similar values, so I was happy when he agreed to join on this trip! What follows are just a few visual impressions from this long weekend in Warth, the long-form article will follow in a bit!

We were lucky enough to also meet up with Nina and Dirk and have a fun afternoon with them. They live during the ski season down in Vorarlberg and hence know a lot of great secret spots!

Views and Tracks

JUMP Around

We skied both on the slopes of Warth-Schröcken and Ski Arlberg, to which the former belongs, while the latter is the largest skiing resort of Austria. But besides hitting the slopes we also found a few spots of untracked powder, which we enjoyed to no small degree.

See more photos in the Flickr Album and on Instagram. And as Björn always finishes his articles with a Music Video, I will honor this tradition with the great song which we listened to a few times on our drives from Munich to Warth and back:
