Andy Thurner’s second guide-book to the Arlberg backcountry, Arlberg Ski Touring Guide is focused entirely on proper ski touring and splitboarding routes in the Arlberg region of Austria.
Arlberg Ski Touring sits perfectly alongside Andy Thurner’s other guide-book, ‘All Around The Arlberg’ (click here to view) and in tandem they provide a wealth of information to the Arlberg area.
Whereas All Around The Arlberg is based more around single lift accessed off piste descents, Arlberg Ski Touring Guide has routes that require some skinning uphill, though they also mostly start by taking a lift. Many routes even start at the bottom of a great off piste descent.
Arlberg Ski Touring Guide is split up into 5 regions; St Anton, Stuben, Lech, Zurs and Sonnenkopf. It features a total of 62 runs on 37 peaks each with colour images and 3D mapping. Useful general info to the Arlberg area including safety and access details also feature in this essential guide to ski touring and splitboarding in the Arlberg.
