Arlberg's unforgettable flair should be experienced at least once in a lifetime of the winter sports aficionado. The winter season in St. Anton starts at the end of November with the traditional "wedel" weeks. From now on each month offers distinctive characteristics and turns Arlberg to a pilgrimage destination for winter athletes. The weeks of Advent promise romantic and peaceful winter magic. The weeks of Christmas and New Year's have a spiritual and emotional atmosphere. With the arrival of February, the sun regains its warming powers and the days become longer and warmer. While there is still a flurry of powder snow on the north-facing slopes, the snow turns to firn on the south-facing slopes. This opens up for another type of skiing. Until the end of May, the Easter, firn and schneekristall (snow crystal) weeks form the explosive finale for one of the top skiing regions of the world.
