Austria's famous resort of [R422R, St. Anton am Arlberg] is running special low-priced lift tickets for Powder Snow Weeks from Jan. 9 to 30, 2010.

A seven-day stay in a pension with breakfast and a six-day lift pass during the Powder Snow Weeks costs from €380 per person. The ski pass is valid for the entire Arlberg Arena and covers 280 kilometres of marked ski runs linked by 84 modern mountain lift and cable cars.

More advanced skiers and snowboarders to St. Anton am Arlberg can explore the 180 kilometres of marked off-piste routes, which are available on top of the hundreds of kilometres of groomed piste in the Arlberg ski region, all in one lift ticket.

St. Anton is unique among ski resorts in that it holds three legendary reputations: firstly as a world-class skiing destination; secondly as one of the most hedonistic apres-ski scenes in any ski resort of the world; and thirdly as a key pioneering resort in Alpine skiing.

Marketed as "the cradle of Alpine skiing", one of the first ski clubs in the Alps was established in St. Anton in 1901. Appropriately St Anton hosted the World Alpine Skiing Championships a century later in 2001.
