Those who seek even more action can board a helicopter and be dropped in the middle of an untouched world of powder snow along with their skiing gear. When spending your skiing vacation at the Arlberg, you will experience absolute peace and tranquillity between the summits of the Arlberg region in one of Austria’s few ski regions that offer heli-skiing in the first place. From the 2,652m Mehlsack or the 2,450m Schneetäli you will exclusively enjoy a one-hour descent down to the romantic Zugertal near Lech.

Heli-skiing from Mehlsack and Schneetäli
The Mehlsack summit is a special challenge for experienced and trained skiers in deep and corn snow conditions. The tour direction “Älpele“ is the most popular descent option. Down in the valley, you can reach Zug via a well-groomed hiking trail after approx. 20 minutes. The sunny “Spullersee“ option is particularly recommended in late spring.
From the landing area below the “Orgelscharte“, the descent leads skiers into the Schneetäli and ends behind Zug. This route is particularly suited as firn descent in spring and even manageable for skiers with medium skill level.
