    The Valluga rules

    by sourbugger Written Apr 23, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I could be a snow bore at this pint and witter on about how great the skiing is at St Anton, especially run 37 at the top of the Kappel....sorry.

    Instead, may I just recommend that at any time of the year the trip up to the top of the Valluga mountain is well worth the trip. You can see for bloody miles.

    It's three stage affair. First you ascend on the new gondola lift up to galzig. It's the first of its type in the world. The individual cars are connected to the cable way by means of a kind of mini ferris wheel which lifts you from street level upwards. This has the great advantage that it is easy to enter and exit at ground level - thus avoiding that traditional trudge up stairs with skis.

    At Galzig you tranfer to a more traditional cablecar that wangs youup the mountain. The skiers can leave from there to ski all the way back down to the village, but the tiny (holds six people only) Valluga II cable car takes you to the very top.

    'Stunning view' only begins scratch the surface of the panorama you experience up there.

    A part of the St. Anton ski pass is the area next to the town Lech. If you think St. Anton is a fashionable place you have to go to Lech here you find shops selling Mclaren-mercedes sports cars and people more into drinking champagne then skiing. From St. Anton you can take a regional bus it cost you around 6 euro for a return ticket or you can go down slope 17 to Alpe Rauz and take a free lift bus from there.

    The skiing area in Lech is very nice and the lest difficult of the main area.

    The most cosy part of St. Anton is situated around the pedestrian zone this part of Dorfstrasse is guarded by R2D2 that has a retirement job here together with a cousin in the other end only letting the locals in by car.

    The best health club in the world.

    Built originallly for the World Championship in St Anton in 2001, it is now open to the public, and it's superb.

    Three Saunas : 65 deg, 85 deg and 95 deg C (!)
    Steam Room
    40 foot whirlpool/jacuzzi
    indoor/outdoor heated swimming pools
    solariums
    massage
    everything

    Please note, the Austrians do a proper sauna, which is the best, full nudity required. If you insist on wearing your trunks/bathing costume, then you'll be asked to remove them. So get rid of those conservative opinions and join the in crowd. If someone's staring at you, lie on your back, feet in the air, as the general rear view isn't too attractive!

    sledges in front of eating spot

    Every Tuesday and Thursday you can rent a Sledge after 7:30 and take a telefrique up the mountain and come sledging down..it's much more fun than it looks and much easier than skiing
