Freeskiing is FreEDOM Andy Gohl is St. Anton‘s youngest source of pride in freeskiing. He will, in fact, most likely be representing Austria in this discipline at the XXII. Olympic Winter Games 2014 in Sotschi. Together with his friend and mentor, Christoph „Giggo“ Wolf, he chatted to St. Anton Revue about his goals and sporty home town.

4


age of almost 20 years, A tyouthearetender the raison d’être for great

optimism in your home town and at SkiClub Arlberg (SCA) for Sotschi in February 2014. Did you ever dream that you would one day compete in the Olympics? Andy: Never! But it seems that all the hard training has paid off! I still need a few more points to be able to participate and move up in the world rankings. I have to finish in the top 30 at the next World Cup race. Qualifying for Sotschi is my greatest sporting goal right now. Christoph: It must be said that Andy had a bad fall in autumn 2013 while training for the first World Cup in New Zealand, meaning that he couldn’t take part. This is why he is still missing a few points. But I am confident he will pick them up at the next race.. Your friendship goes back a long time and you, Christoph, were also his long time coach? Your favourite playground is the Stantonpark at Rendl, is that right? Christoph: Yes, Andy has been a member of the SCA Newschool Team since its inception. He was always one of the most talented and ambitious students. He listened to advice and put it into practise. He is a showcase student and demonstrates to other riders that freeskiing is a serious sport, and that there is a huge amount of training involved. Andy: In my last season as a downhill racer, aged about 13, I was often went to Stantonpark and was mesmerised by the freedom and endless opportunities you have as a freeskier. A year later, SkiClub Arlberg made it possible for me to train with Giggo Wolf in the park. So you owe your meteoric rise to the SCA? Andy: To both the SCA and my dedicated coach and friend, Giggo. As a result, I am now in the Austrian Freeski Team and Austrian Ski Federation ‘A’ Squad. Christoph: I would like to add that Andy is very resolute. I always told him that it is not just what is going on right now that is important, but school too. From then on, he sat in the first row in class, paid attention and didn’t have to spend too long doing homework. The time won he used for training and has now graduated – even though he certainly missed two to three months of school a year. I am mega proud of that! One assumes that you are probably training every day at the moment? Andy: We are a team and supervised by three coaches: Christian Rijavec, Martin Misof and Lukas Brucic. We train on a trampoline twice a week in a sports hall or on grass mats, and in summer we also use water jumps a great deal. In autumn we step up training on the glaciers in the area. ›

5


Despite these immense physical and mental efforts: Do you still have the same enthusiasm for your sport? Andy: Most definitely. To stand on those skis means freedom for me and to be able to do what I enjoy best. What is the most difficult trick you have mastered? Andy: The „Double Cork 1260“ works well on the kicker, I have yet to master it on the halfpipe. And I have rehearsed the „Unnatural Double Cork 1260“ a great deal on the water jump – I just need to put it into practise on the snow. Your snowboarding and freeski friends will know what that means! What advice would you give to beginners in your sport? Andy: Don’t just try to imitate the tricks you see in videos or in the park. It is best to learn the basics with a specialist and then develop your own style. What do you appreciate most about St. Anton? The snow paradise and incredible landscapes. The absolute hotspot for freestylers in St. Anton is undoubtedly Stantonpark. But there are also countless opportunities at Arlberg to ride powder, plenty of urban sports and places to build backcountry kickers. Everything, in fact, a freEskier’s heart desires.

Profile: Andy Gohl Born 29th January 1994 in Bludenz; grew up in St. Anton. Kindergarten, elementary and secondary school in St. Anton, Landeck Academy of Commerce (graduated in 2013). As yet no profession; fully dedicated to sport. Hobbies: Skiing, volleyball, mountain biking, skating. Stood on skis for the first time aged 2, was a downhill racer until the age of 13, before changing to twin tips (freestyle skis have a curved-up tip and tail, enabling skiers to ski and land backwards). 6

Trainer Giggo Wolf (rear) with three promising young freestylers (from left.): Max Mall, Marco Ladner and Sebi Mall.

„forE-Rider“ Ski-Club Arlberg Giggo Wolf, head of the „Homebase“ youth club in St. Anton, sports mad, daring snowboarder and recent convert to hobby farming with highland cattle, knows the importance of youth friendly services to the ski and snowboard sector: „The SCA was the first ski club in Austria to recognise that racing becomes less attractive after a certain age, and that the interest of many young people can be retained by offering the relatively young sport of Newschool (freestyle) skiing. We now have 50 young people in the team and train all year round. We already have top upcoming talents that are “riding” in Andy Gohl’s tracks. Training should be fun, especially for children. In addition, it is important that children and young people practise the sport professionally, learn to assess risks and to master the techniques perfectly.“

Everything, except skiing! It is true: Arlberg has the best ski slopes far and wide. But there is so much more to discover; things that are fun and show the winter from another and richly diverse perspective.

S

kiing or cross country ski? That is no longer the question. You can very well do both. And it would be a real shame to ignore the wonderfully groomed trails from St. Christoph to the Arlberg Pass, via St. Anton to Flirsch. They lead through stunning winter landscapes, as do the snowshoe and winter hiking trails – of which there are so many here. Everything is possible, from easy round walks to challenging alpine tours.

you can set out on foot and return under horse power, but only 2 at the most: during a romantic sleigh ride. Snuggled under a warm blanket, with a red nose from the fresh air and accompanied by a few snowflakes and the tinkling of the bells, you will feel like you are in a winter wonderland. The first snowshoeing tour is for most, an eye-opening experience. Skischule Arlberg offers guided walks and snowshoes can be rented from all sports shops.

Tracks in the snow

Head to the skies…

Nature does not sleep during winter, which is why you should definitely include a trip to observe the local wildlife in your vacation programme. Beautiful combinations of the two are also on offer, for example, in Verwalltal. Here

Those who prefer more adventurous activities can enjoy the novel experience of looking down on the mountains and gently landing in a target point in the snow after an exhilarating tandem paragliding flight. Choose between

9


a quarter, half or full hour flight. Experienced pilots will show you exactly what needs to be done. Rest assured – they can be trusted to get you down safely. Taking the curve on runners If you love speedy downhill descents, why not pick up a sled and head out on a fun toboggan trip? A rustic mountain lodge, a few good friends and hot tea or punch are the perfect ingredients before whizzing down the winding descent. Tobogganing does not have to be at break neck speeds, though. Just put your foot down – which acts as a brake in this respect. Depending on your mood and fitness levels, you can pull the sledge uphill by hand or take the convenient option of using the lifts. If you like it romantic, why not try tobogganing in the evening or at night? Floodlit runs lead the way under the star studded skies. Don’t forget a thick anorak, gloves and hat! well-ness & arl-rocks You don’t need to wrap up warmly for the many indoor opportunities on offer. Swimming, for example, or the sauna, gym or relaxing spa at „ARLBERG-well. com – Center for Wellness and Communication“. The name alone suggests that it is not difficult to meet new people here. The essential pleasures of rest and relaxation can also be enjoyed at the Wellnesspark Arlberg Stanzertal – the indoor pool and saunas invite you to indulge in the interplay of temperatures and elements of water & fire. Those wanting to test their climbing skills or refine existing techniques, can do just

Gym or relax in the ARLBERG-well.com that at a bouldering and climbing course in a purpose built hall, as in the arl-rock Sports and Climbing Centre, or Flirsch Climbing Hall. For ice climbing you will need to get back outside again, but it is only the “cool guys” that indulge in this pastime anyway. Speaking of ice: lots of fun can be had on sheets of horizontal ice at the ice skating rink and curling lanes at ARLBERG-well. com. Is there anybody left out there who still wants to ski? Yes of course, but isn’t it wonderful when so much variety can be enjoyed on holiday?

“…and we were there!!” Each winter, the long skiing season in St. Anton ends with the ‘Weisser Rausch – The White Thrill, probably the most spectacular skiing competition in the world. We had dreamt of taking part for many years. And suddenly – this dream became a reality! This report is about two unbelievable days in the sporting life of two journalists/ photographers, Martijn Hinrichs and Maarten Wijsman from the Netherlands…

W

12

e planned well for the start of our holiday at the end of April 2013 but we had overlooked one key date: after checking into the Hotel Rundeck, the receptionist told us that The White Thrill cult ski race was taking place that very weekend! Our friends had been talking about this competition for years but until now, we never had the chance to take part. We were hugely disappointed to learn in the same breath that registration for the event had closed months ago due to the high level of popularity. But we couldn’t let this fantastic opportunity to take part pass by that easily! To our great pleasure, the friendly hotel owner told us that we might still be able to secure two competitor tickets from the St. Anton am Arlberg tourist information.

Tourist Board + Committee = OK After contacting the competition’s organisational committee and the tourist board and many cups of coffee later, we received some good news: we were allowed to take part! We were ridiculously happy and at the same time, the sense of excitement was rising. We looked at one another: one of the world’s most challenging skiing competitions and we were going to be there! And as skiers, not spectators!! After receiving this good news, we had one day before the race began. But we didn’t have the right equipment or knowledge of the route. The weather forecast was also poor. Not the best of starts! We were able to sort out the equipment issue at a sports shop and then it was time to

check out the route. It was there that we met Hideki Susuki, the best-known skier from Japan. He has been coming to St. Anton from Japan for the last four years to take part in the The White Thrill. This encounter gave us an extra boost. After completing two descents in the snow, we decided to save our energy and head off to sample the delights of a local spa. Getting serious After a restless night, we woke up full of excitement – much earlier than usual! We were nervously eating our breakfast by 7:00. Another 10 hours until the race started! So we waited, lounged around and practised a bit of skiing. Finally the time came at 17:00: over 300 skiers wai-


ted for the group start at the Vallugagrat and the chance to conquer the ‘monster’ Valluga. What a view! We exchanged a few words and tried to secure a good starting position among the crowd. The last few minutes were nerve-racking and then the starting shot was fired… WE WERE OFF! All of the participants swooped down and we found ourselves among some of the best skiers in the world.

pletely destroyed and the first few metres after the next descent were a bit wobbly! Luckily we regained our momentum relatively quickly and continued to push ahead. Alongside us, skiers were flying into the fences and speeding through the air but we raced ahead though the foggy Steissbachtal valley! And once we had broken away from the crowd, we tore down the last few hundred metres.

Surviving the first few metres

A magnificent experience

The first few hundred metres were about survival. There were skiers in-front, alongside and behind us and we saw the first falls! We completed the first section without difficulty and then came the tricky ascent – we ‘raced’ up the 200 m! After this initial enthusiasm, we were com-

Our legs were really flagging when we reached the passage from the Mooserwirt but the cheers from the spectators gave us the necessary boost to draw on our last energy reserves. As a ‘joke’, there was another enormous heap of snow to tackle just before the finish. We stumbled

over the finish line, completely exhausted! We were no longer able to stand but we recovered a bit after 15 minutes. Our result: 26th and 36th among the 321 participants! But more importantly of all: we survived The White Thrill and enjoyed a truly enriching experience. Until next time! www.mrtnproductions.com

Maarten Wijsman and Martijn Hinrichs with Japanese skier Hideki Susuki who travels to complete The White Thrill every year.

The White Thrill cult race The White Thrill is the first stage of the legendary ‘Arlberg Adler’ mountain triathlon each year. Several hundred skiers, snowboarders and Telemark skiers set off each year from the Vallugagrat starting line – in 2013, over 300 took part. A 9 km descent lies before them, covering 1,350 m of altitude. This is not only downhill, as there is a tricky 200 metre ascent which needs to be completed along the way – on foot and carrying your skis! The fastest complete the race in 7 minutes and a few seconds but times between 11 and 18 minutes are a good average. The next White Thrill will take place on 19 April 2014! www.arlbergadler.eu

Completely exhausted but proud and happy at the finish line: the two Dutch participants, Maarten Wijsman and Martijn Hinrichs.

"Vorsprung durch Teamwork"

(advantage through technology)

Two top sporting brands, St. Anton am Arlberg and Audi, have enjoyed a successful partnership for five years now. To the benefit of everyone concerned. Also for guests, who can experience outstanding sporting events and more, thanks to the Ingolstadtbased premium car manufacturers.

T

hose visiting St. Anton certainly won’t be able to avoid them: Banners at the city limits and at many events, as well as the highly distinctive Audi-mobile in the resort design are some of the visible signs. Two premium brands have found each other here – one is the birthplace of alpine ski, the other is one of the world’s most successful automobile manufacturers. Both are the epitome of unparalleled quality, with a past, present and future. Home of Quattro The Quattro „Vorsprung durch Technik“ (advantage through technology) by Audi AG, maintains a worldwide pioneering role in the four wheel drive market. Quattro technology, which has sold over 5 million times since its debut in 1980, should always be on hand where it is needed for most of the year. The Audi innovation in 2008 was the dawn of a collaboration that could not have developed any more favourably over the next five years. It only needed a few talks in Tyrol and Bavaria, before both parties readily agreed that they had found exactly what they were looking for in each other. The

14

sporting image and premium quality of both brands made the decision mutually easy. Since then, the partnership has worked perfectly“, said Martin Ebster, Director of St. Anton am Arlberg Tourist Board, pleased. Luca de Meo, Head of Sales and Marketing at Audi AG is also full of praise: „The principle core values of St. Anton am Arlberg and Audi make them the perfect match. The concept is consistent, the cooperation is streamlined and well organised, and success is tangible and measurable for both partners. St. Anton may not be our only partner in tourism, but it is certainly one of our most significant.“ Lots of perks, without a lot of money This is a non-monetary collaboration, well at least non-cash. The most important aspect is the event management. St. Anton guarantees that Audi will receive space and presence at all major sporting events – be it in the form of banners, words, pictures, presentations or test driving new models. Audi, in turn, provides sponsorship in the form of great prizes and organises uniform „Branding“. Journalists writing


15


articles on St. Anton enjoy use of a specially allocated Audi on arrival – not only for the events. Premium customers can look forward to exclusive travel packages from Audi. Where to? Well that one is obvious! Big spreads in Audi Magazine, the Audi logo on all brochures and Tourist Board printed matter, an almost universal presence in the village – one could say that the two partners are tightly intertwined. A1 to RS 6 Audi provides the town of St. Anton and its tourist board with four special complimentary cars every year: The three Audi A6 all-road Quattro and Audi A1, in the trendy corporate design of St. Anton am Arlberg, are the catalyst for many admiring stares and motor sport discussions. As are the presentations of new models in the pedestrian zone. By the way: The carmakers from Ingolstadt have offered their legendary Audi driving experience on an exciting off-road course twice now in St. Anton. This service is being planned again for four wheel drive fans this coming winter. Those who get to encounter driving in deepest Tyrolean winter conditions during their holiday won’t forget it again in a hurry. Another memorable experience is the exclusive opportunity to participate in a sporting competition accompanied by one of the original DTM or Le Mans safety cars – an Audi R8 GT or the new Audi RS 6: made possible by Audi and the Arlberg-Giro or Road Racing Weeks in August. Maybe one day an Audi Anton model will be available? Probably not, but it would be a nice name…

Pioneer and Ambassador for Arlberg Rudolph „Rudi“ Matt is one of the great sons of St. Anton am Arlberg. As skier, slalom world champion in 1936, long-time president of the Ski-Club Arlberg, director of Arlberg Ski School and internationally sought after ski instructor, he shaped the legendary reputation of the village being the birthplace of alpine ski. 2013 is the 20th anniversary of his death.

R

udi Matt grew up in difficult times. Born on 10th September 1909, his childhood was overshadowed by the First World War. As far as one could be affected by the world’s events at „Poltali“ – the name of Matt’s house – in the little village of St. Anton am Arlberg, or rather Nasserein as it was known as until 1927. Little Rudi grew up in simple living conditions – conditions that characterised his adult unpretentiousness, good social skills and love for his fellow men. As a young lad he took part in Nordic and Alpine competitions, first achieving top results in the winter of 1930. He celebrated his first victory in his home village in 1931 Rudi Matt as: „Rudi Matt“ It was 1931, when Arnold Fanck turned Arlberg into a cinematic monument with his film, „Der weiße Rausch – neue

Wunder des Schneeschuhs“ (The white thrill – new wonder of the snow shoe). Alongside „ski baby“ Leni Riefenstahl and her ski instructor, Hannes Schneider, Rudi Matt was given the part of „Hunter Rudi Matt“, and was able to demonstrate his extraordinary skiing skills on camera. The plot of the film may not have been complex, but Rudi Matt, Hannes Schneider, Guzzi Lantschner, Toni Seelos & Co. proved themselves to be the best skiers of that time and demonstrated how advanced ski (racing) sport had become at Arlberg. Participating in this film, however, was only a small episode in the life of Rudi Matt, as he consequently pursued his sporting career, securing top positions in the Nordic and Alpine Ski World Championships from the early to mid 1930s. In 1934, he was the top

ranking Central European ski jumper at Holmenkollen in Oslo/Norway. World Champion instead of Olympic Then 1936 arrived. He dearly would have liked to have gone to the Winter Olympic Games in Garmisch-Partenkirchen – like so many of his fellow racers. The alpine ski races were being held there for the first time. But the International Olympic Committee did not allow professionals to participate in the amateur race– a scandal! Instead, Matt excelled at the World Championships in Innsbruck: Half a second ahead of his compatriot, Eberhard Kneissl, he won the gold medal in slalom – the zenith of his racing career! Matt secured two more victories in the same season in the slalom and combination at the Hahnenkamm Races in Kitzbühel. ›

His daughter, Rosemarie, recalls: „My father was a very helpful person, calm, collected and always there for others. It was important to him that people had a job.“ …and far away

Rudi Matt in his favourite element: on the slopes and racing with friends.

› Before finally ending his active career at the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, Rudi Matt was a constant leader in the ski circuit but was no longer able to achieve his former great success. A ski expert at home… After the war, the family man kept his close links with skiing. He lived with his wife Roswitha and daughter Rosemarie in the „Rudi Matt“ house at Kandaharweg number 7, which he built in 1948. In the same year he looked after the Austrian Olympic team in St. Moritz. A year earlier he assumed management of the Arlberg Ski School together with Sepp Fahrner. By the time KarL Schranz took over from the duo in 1975, they had built it up to

Rudi Matt’s expertise was also in international demand: During the winter of 1950/51, he managed the ski school in Sun Valley/Idaho/USA, and, in the late 1950’s, demonstrated his teaching technique and style several times in Japan. He returned to the film screens again in 1958, with the no less famous movie „Der schwarze Blitz“ (The Black Lightening), alongside Toni Sailer . In 1968, he was involved with the construction of a ski resort in the Indian Kashmir region. In 1969 he contributed his expertise to the development of a ski resort in Manza/ Japan. Honour to whom honour is due Rudi Matt was president of Ski-Club Arlberg for an incredible 32 years, from 1951 to1983, after which he became honorary president and remained deeply involved until his death. Similarly, he was a dedicated councillor for the Brotherhood of St. Christoph and an honorary citizen of his home town St. Anton. He was chairman of the Austrian and Tyrolean Ski Instructors Association for many years, while taking time out on the side for the voluntary services: as long-time commander of St. Anton fire

The most important: bearer of the Grand Decoration of Honour in Gold for Services to the Republic of Austria, Decoration of honour for Services to Tyrol, Golden Medal of Honour of the Austrian Ski Association as well as honorary member of many ski clubs and associations around the world. As ambassador of Arlberg at home and abroad, Rudi Matt died at the age of 84 on 18th November 1993. His life and works can still be felt today. Guests staying at the Rudi Matt private guest house see the many photos hanging on the walls and are impressed by the great achievements and pioneering spirit of Rudi Matt.

World Cup – Overture for more

22


St. Anton‘s Women’s World Cup Race in January 2013 was a resounding success. Those responsible on ground level, ranging from Ski-Club Arlberg, to the Arlberger Bergbahnen Cable Car Co. and the Tourist Board, proved all over again that they certainly understand the art of organising a professional ski race. More than that; the whole village is right behind the event. Everyone is keen for Arlberg to become a fixture On the Alpine ski circuit again. Conclusion: More races are welcome and the greatest goal is to obtain approval anew to host the Ski World Championships. There is still a long way to go, but the people of St. Anton have proved many a time that they are not afraid of going the extra mile.

It’s boah. Since 1989.

The weather is boss A Tyrolean and a Dane make the tracks in the snow used by cross country skiers and hikers in winter. Bruno Hafele and Alan Jensen are the masters of St. Anton’s cross country ski and winter walking trails..

f snow were human, one would ascribe him (or her) with a diva-like nature. Sometimes it is wet, and then dry again, it may be powdery or, depending on the time of day and season, frozen. The list of its attributes could go on and on: Bruno Hafele, is not a member of the Inuit people, who apparently have over 20 words in their vocabulary to describe snow. To be more precise, he comes from St. Jakob am Arlberg (where there are in fact a similar number of terms to describe the cold). Employed by St. Anton am Arlberg Tourist Board, he keeps the cross country ski and snowy winter walking trails from St. Christoph to the Verwall and Stanzer Valleys in pristine shape during the cold season. “The Bruno”, by reason of occupation, appreciates neat shapes and surfaces. With the meticulousness of a skilled carpenter he carves his way, and consequently many visitors, through the snow. For six months

of the year, the 56 year old shelves his carpenter plane and replaces it with a Pistenbully, Paana model. This snow grooming machine requires careful steering, in much the same manner as using a sharp tool. They spend 350 hours on average per winter sitting at the controls of these vehicles worth almost Euro 100,000 – of which there are two – as well as 150 hours operating a Pistenbully 300 owned by the lifts in St. Christoph. Even more important than careful steering of this machinery, however, is having a feel for snow and its peculiarities. No two winters are ever the same Those in the right place at the wrong time are punished by the weather. „We usually prepare the trails in the evening, which can go on as late as 23.00 hrs in spring.

On the other hand, if there is new snow we start first thing in the morning. If you start too early, however, your work disappears again under a layer of new snow“, explains Hafele. One gets the feeling that a sure-fire method for trail grooming does not exist. „It depends on many factors. Wet snow behaves differently to dry. Powder snow works best after a long cold spell. But it mustn’t be too cold. Humidity is the decisive factor. You never really stop learning, as no two winters are ever the same. The weather is our boss“, says the avid cross country skier, who regularly walks in his own tracks. Not much can happen without snow There is at least one basic principle: winter hiking trails are easier to groom than cross country ski trails. It is no good, however,


when there are lumps underfoot so care must be exercised when working here too. The biggest challenges are created by winters with little snow. Then they have to scrape all available snow together. Alan and Bruno need to drive over 80 km with their groomers to prepare all 41 km of the cross country trails. Snow shortages are rare in St. Christoph, where there is a high altitide 2.5 kilometre long groomed cross country ski trail. The most challenging section of Hafele’s empire leads through a 150 metre long tunnel in Verwall. This narrow channel swallows up to 16 truckloads of snow: „It is very tight. We need a fair amount of time to get the trail up and running in there.“ Exotic snow groomer Hafele has been ploughing his way through the winter landscapes for the past 13 years. He has shared this task for the last five with Alan Jensen. The mountains of St. Anton exerted their magic over this man from Denmark a number of years ago, which is why he moved here. He now maintains the hiking paths, green areas and cross country ski trails in summer as in winter. How does a man from the flat country learn to master such a complex subject? „I showed Alan how to do it once, and from then on he had to work it out alone. Which he did“, Bruno Hafele is impressed to this day with the rapid adaptability of his colleague. Maybe this talent for snowy ice worlds doesn’t happen by chance. After all, Denmark belongs to the much larger Greenland, right?

Room for art There are some high quality works of art and original artistic compositions in many of the hotels on the Arlberg and in the Stanzertal valley.

ll doors are open to good artwork – and that includes hotel doors! An increasing number of host families on the Arlberg and in the Stanzertal valley are dedicating space to art in their hotels. A great deal of expertise is applied to create a suitable setting in which to present this artwork or introduce a skilful and deliberate change in style. A still life of art and decoration can also be loud and humorous. This shows at least that the host has a sense of humour. Who wouldn’t want to visit a hotel like that? Numerous guests with an eye for art enjoy breakfasting among original drawings

by the famous Tyrolean painter and artist Paul Flora or being greeted in the foyer by a painting by Peppi Spiss, the local matador of visual artists in St. Anton. Renowned artist Ulrike Stubenböck was born in St. Anton – at the mountain station of St. Anton’s local mountain, the Galzig, to be pricise. She is responsible for designing the magnificent new glass windows in the parish church in the town centre. She also considers the trend for high quality hotel art to be very positive: “It is a good opportunity for artists to show off their works and respect the intrinsic value of art. And there is no reason why

the definition of art should not also be extended to see hotel life brightened by with readings, theatre displays and performances”.

Arlberg – the mountain of art During the winter season of 2015/2016, Florian Werner will be opening the ‘Arlberg 1800’ art and concert hall in St. Christoph am Arlberg. The name relates to the height above sea level and visitors will be transported into a world of artistic highs here through visual art and music. The art centre is being developed

The Arlberg 1800 Art and Concert Hall is a highlight in the literal sense – both architecturally and with its high calibre programme.

› close to the Arlberg Hospiz Hotel run by the Werner family. Florian Werner is more than just a successful hotelier and art enthusiast; he is also an artist himself and has completed a master class with Hermann Nitsch. “This is a long-standing dream of mine which is finally coming true, because my heart also belongs to art. I paint, I run a gallery in Bregenz, I collect works by international young artists and I operate an Artists’ in Residence programme at the hotel. Arlberg 1800 presents a unique opportunity to give my passion a home”. A passion which I would like to share with all visitors interested in art. lots oF GuEsts WitH aN iNtErEst iN art One of the most important contact partners in the field of art in St. Anton am Arlberg is the painter Peppi Spiss. He was born in St. Anton in 1960 and still lives and works here today. In winter, he dedicates his time to running his own B&B and in summer, he focuses on art. Together with artist Lisa Krabichler, he has also been operating the ‘ArtBox’ gallery in the pedestrianised area of St. Anton since 2011. The gallery is open during the winter season. st. anton revue: You have stayed loyal to your local community and started to work as an artist 25 years ago. Was it easy to start with?

28

Peppi Spiss: No, not at all. People mocked me during the early days. But fortunately this changed. This was largely the result of my perseverance but also my international success. My exhibition at the Montague Art Gallery in New York in 2000 brought me the break-through and recognition I needed. The Art-Box gallery which I established with my partner, artist Lisa Krabichler, is also going very well.


Many guests with a serious interest in art come to visit us throughout the winter. High quality artwork is increasingly present in hotels. Are hotels a suitable forum for exhibiting art? Yes definitely. I am very pleased that this possibility exists. It helps to increase the esteem in which artists are held and also increases their market opportunities. Emotionally speaking, it makes me feel good when the guests and locals enjoy my images. We have an international audience in St. Anton and people are very open to art and artists. And so too is the latest generation of hoteliers. We have also noted this positive development reflected in art evenings at the gallery. There is a great deal of discussion here about art and about which images belong where. In my opinion, an artist who focuses on traditional themes, such as Herbert Danler, fits in perfectly with modern architecture. And Spiss too, of course… Yes I think so too and fortunately others share my view. I received a big commission from the ‘Anthony’s’ hotel. 50 of my works are on display there. Lisa Krabichler and I also have leasing contracts with various other hotels. This means that we lend our works out for a year. We then swap the images to ensure that guests always have something new to look at. In the past, we would hang our work up for free. But appreciation of art has now increased – although it has taken some time. This is a worthwhile deal for the hotels too because they constantly have interesting and changing wall designs in their rooms. Does it bother you if one of your pictures is presented in a more kitsch context? To be honest it does. Art and kitsch or art and rubbish are a dangerous balancing act and often go wrong. But I rely on my customers’ tastes and this has usually proven to be a good decision. Your pictures generally fit in well with the themes of the local hotels. The ‘Weisser Rausch’ (White Thrill) continues to be featured in your art. Yes that’s true. This magnificent ski film by the director Arnold Fanck with Hannes Schneider continues to influence me. It’s unbelievable the spectacular recordings it contains - including the lighting. The film and its topic have stayed with me. And it will continue to provide me with mental images in the future which I can incorporate into my art. Thank you! By the way: the pleasant gallery evenings take place every Thursday from 19:00 during the winter season.

The Swabian children passed the „Waldhäusli“ (Forest House) on the old Arlberg Road as they left Stanzertal on their way to a foreign land.

The return of the Swabian children Until the 1930’s, many children from the Stanzertal Valley had to go to Swabia every year to work. The poverty of their families forced them on this long and arduous journey into the unknown. Their fate is remembered at the Museum of St. Anton.

O

ne mouth less to feed. Not so long ago that was reason enough for many large families in the Alps to send their youngest members to work in a foreign land. There is written evidence of children migrating to work from as early as 1625. The high point was reached in the 19th Century, when an estimated 4,000 children were sent to Upper Swabia annually. By 1900 numbers reduced to only around 800 children from Tyrol and Vorarlberg, before the practise gradually came to an end - although there is evidence that a less systematic form of “Swabian migration” continued sporadically until just after the war. Children were selected and collected at Ravensburg Market, to go and work on large farms as servants and shepherds from dawn to dusk. Some fell on their feet, others were shamelessly exploited.

Life was not easy. Nevertheless, the Swabian children were able to play and distract themselves from harsh everyday life.


„Cycle tours“ a la yesteryear: The arduous path led past the Arlberg Hospiz in St. Christoph am Arl­berg.

No child’s play The exhausting journey alone demanded every ounce those little legs had to give. Although from 1885 a train service was in existence, not all Swabian children could afford the florin for the ride. So they continued to cross the Arlberg on foot, sometimes in the snow and cold. Many boys and girls from Stanzertal were unable to evade this journey into the unknown. Written records still exist from Hans Perktold from Pettneu, who reported: „I always walked barefoot and have got sores on my feet.“ They laughed about him at school because of the way he spoke, so he only went for a few days. Pettneuer man, Engelbert Zangerle who died in 2013, came from a family of 17 children and was one of the last Swabian workers in 1934. After a month of hard labour at an Upper Swabian farm he wrote home: „I am not doing too badly“, whereupon his worried father fetched him back. Lest we forget As part of a transnational EU project, St. Anton Museum has dedicated an exhibition to stories like these. Both visitors and locals can find out comprehensive information on the subject here. „It is important to remember these stories. There is no need for us to hide the history of our tourist resort, and we want to present the Swabian children period as it was,“ explains Peter Mall from St. Anton Museum. Acting on the initiative of the museum association, a station has been set up along the hiking route the Swabian children would have taken, next to the Hospiz St. Christoph. As they passed, the children would traditionally carve a small piece of wood

out of the St. Christophorus statue to carry with them and hopefully make it easier to endure the inevitable homesickness when the time came. It would bring them pleasure to know they are still SUCH A BIG PRESENCE IN THEIR HOMELAND AFTER SO MANY DECADES.

„Schwabian children on the move“ This EU funded project follows in the footsteps of the Swabian children from their homes in the Alps to their workplace in Upper Swabia. 27 cultural institutions in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Italy are taking part, including St. Anton Museum and the “Kunstraum” in Pettneu. Tyrolean project partners have created fact sheets for the children of North and South Tyrol which can be seen, amongst others, at St. Anton Museum. Various aspects and migration routes used by the Swabian children are also exhibited. Opening times MUSEUM ST.

Broaden your Palate Cooking and eating together is a source of true pleasure and fosters solidarity. Members of SoViSta are already well aware of this and regularly extend invitations to share dining experiences.

hen did you last eat together? Probably not very long ago – but when did you last cook together? That is probably a while ago. What a shame, as cooking together is a source of great joy and you can learn a lot on the side – not just about cooking, but how a community functions. You look at the bigger picture, share kitchen secrets, watch while others cook and impress others with your own culinary skills. With this in mind, members of the SoViSta Club (Social Vision Stanzertal) regularly invite cookery enthusiasts, and those who would like to become such, to afternoons of cooking together in Strengen, Flirsch, Pettneu and St. Anton. They meet in school or private kitchens, roll their sleeves up, put their pinnies on and get to work with a wooden spoon, whisk and food processor. In no time at all, delicious aromas waft seductively from the pots and pans.

Cooking for all ages SoViSta is a voluntary association that focuses on supporting people in old age and creating an inter-generational network. According to their motto, there is no age limit. Anyone who wants to, can participate. Young people bring their grandparents, women their husbands and vice versa. Traditional meals are just as likely to be created as nouveau cuisine. Soup bowls are filled with, “grey” cheese soup, for example, or barley soup, farmer’s dumplings or Swabian soup. Main courses are, amongst others, water mousse, Tyrolean “Gröstl” or cabbage strudel rounded off by strange sounding but delicious tasting deserts, such as, “Kirchtagskrapfen, (sweet, filled pastries), Strauben (funnel cake), Scheiterhaufen (apple cake with meringue) Zwetschkenkuchen (plum cake). Healthy options are also observed, meaning that a menu could poten-

tially consist of; buckwheat soup, green spelt casserole with sour cream and horseradish, topped with walnuts and served with homemade spelt bread with walnuts and ginger-horseradish-turmeric butter. Although the cookery evenings are not a cooking class in the traditional sense, even experienced home cooks can learn a thing or two, as all participants have their own special tips and tricks. The range of recipes is almost endless – even tried and tested recipes for regional cuisine can be given a delicious new twist. The men and women in attendance certainly like to share the knowledge they have with others. They have even brought out a cookbook that provides many suggestions for cooking together. The whole idea is down to Elisabeth Pfeifer from St. Anton, who is also one of the organisers of the communal cooking. The „Kochbuch der Generationen" (Cookbook of Generations) is over 100 pages long and is available from


SoViSta Club and selected businesses in Stanzertal as from the 2013/14 winter season. And here is the SoViSta recipe for Tyrolean Kirchtagskrapfen (sweet, filled pastries): Ingredients for the pastry (ca. 40 pieces): 500 g flour 1 teaspoon salt 2 whole eggs 50 g butter melted in ca. 130 ml of warm milk Ingredients for the filling: 200 g finely ground poppy seeds 150 g raisins 100 g figs 1 level teaspoon of cinnamon 1 pinch of ground cloves 6 level desert spoons of sugar 6 desert spoons of breadcrumbs ca. 200 ml water 250 g butter and 250 g lard for baking

Like it used to be with grandma: „Erdäpfelriebler“ potatoes with butter milk bring nostalgia to the table.

Method for the dough: Mix the flour with the salt, turn it onto a work surface and press a hole in the middle. Pour the eggs and warm milk with butter into the hole and slowly work it into dough. Knead thoroughly, then cut in half. Shape the dough into two balls, wrap separately in cling-film and leave to rest for at least one hour in a warm place. Place a large pillow over the back of a chair and cover it with a clean cloth. Roll out the dough, lay it on the cloth and pull it carefully by its corners until it is very thin. Put the dough back on the work surface, roll the filling into little balls in the palm of your hand and place them on the pastry distanced around 5 x 5 centimetres apart. Roll the second ball of dough out, place that too on the cloth and pull it until it is thin, then lay it over the dough with the filling. Press the edges and the gaps in between the filling down well by hand. Cut away the thick edge, then cut the finished dough into squares and fry them until golden brown in the hot butter and lard.

Tyrolean classic: „Kirchtagskrapfen“ sweet pastries with a choice of tasty fillings.

Guests are warmly invited!

Method for the filling:

If you are interested in joining one or several of the cookery afternoons in one of the four municipalities of Stanzertal during your holiday, please let SoViStaVital-coordinator, Marion Chodakowsky, know per email under idee@sovista.at In addition to “Cooking for all ages” the club has also initiated a project on papermaking.

Dice the figs and dried prunes, add the remaining ingredients and mix well, before leaving to rest for one hour. Tip: If some of the filling is left over, you can roll it into small balls, dip it in batter and fry in hot fat. Preparation for the Kirchtagskrapfen ca. one hour, rest for one hour, finishing them off ca. one more hour. Nice, when you can bake them amongst friends – and of course eat and enjoy them together. Guten Appetit!

Sweet plums for the palate: Plum cake with whipped cream.

The best international snow volleyball duo will compete in the 2014 grand finale in St. Anton am Arlberg.


Served cold – ducking, diving & smashing in the snow Extreme sports and party, snow and sweat, mountain air and adrenalin – the „Snow Volleyball Tour“ is making a guest performance in St. Anton am Arlberg. The international volleyball elite will be competing for the “King of the Snow” title at 2,030 metres above sea level, next to the top station of the Rendlbahn lifts. Last year’s event attracted record attendance levels of over 4,000 fans!

T

he tournament may be taking place at „Rendl Beach“, but this particular beach is located at 2,030 metres in altitude. And the playing surface won’t be sandy and warm, but ice cold and frozen. One could be forgiven for thinking that the volleyball players will be turning up in ski attire – far from it. Scantily clad, highly motivated and in late winter temperatures they will be giving their all on the playing field. The wildcard tournament will be held on day one, to which all volleyball amateurs – including guests – can sign up for free. The winning team of the amateur tournament will receive the exclusive option to compete against the pros in the „Snow Volleyball Tour“ main event. These international teams will battle it out on the second day of the tournament, after all, they are competing for none other than the „King of the Snow“ title. Meteoric RISE Launched in 2009 to a crowd of 500 spectators, the tour has since developed into a proverbial spectator magnet. Five tour stops in four countries – Austria, Switzerland, Germany and Italy – and 15,000 fans in total for 2013 impressively demonstrates in numbers the increasing hype surrounding snow-volleyball in recent years. A milestone was set for this young sport in 2011: The Austrian Volleyball Federation recognised Snow Volleyball as an official sport and provided it with a set of regulations. With that, the basic framework for professionalism and competition was guaranteed at the highest level. St. Anton is now not only the birthplace of alpine ski, but also of snow-volleyball: The first ever tournament was held here in 1998. Fun in the foreground What is the special attraction of the event series? Even though the game on centre court is seriously competitive, snow volleyball is more about having fun amongst

like-minded people. DJ’s, moderators, palm trees, whirlpool and cheerleaders will provide just the right beach party atmosphere – mountain air included. So don’t forget to bring your bathing gear! The next opportunity to see the sport live, or even participate, is on the 5th and 6th April 2014 during the tour’s grand final in

MOUNTAINS OF PLEASURE The lifts, pistes and restaurants of the Arlberger Bergbahnen AG make any winter holiday a real pleasure. The St. Anton am Arlberg guests are afforded comfort, quality, variety and adventure, virtually everything the heart desires.

he first time one comes to St. Anton it’s all about discovering the mountains and the legendary skiing area of the Arlberg. Those who have been visiting for years know and value the unmistakable excellence the mountains have to offer.

GALZIG/ VALLUGA

38

For 75 years, the Galzigbahn has transported guests from all over the world on probably the best known peak of St. Anton. Seven years ago, with the new building of the cable car, the Arlberger Bergbahnen AG was awarded the „International Chicago Architecture Award“ with regard to technical infrastructure and

architectural implementation, attracting worldwide attention. For winter 2013/2014, once more a new facility comes into being, with the new building of the Tanzböden chair lift on Galzig, which can do virtually everything that modern lift technology has to offer. The detachable 6-man high speed chair lift, each with a protective cover, is primarily a pioneering innovation due to its automatic childproof lock. 10.2 kilometres of the purest piste pleasure, the longest run of the skiing area awaits those who take the cable car from Galzig, floating comfortably over the valley to the highest peak - the Valluga. Every year, at the end of the season, this area serves as the setting of the „White Thrill“,

a spectacular ski race with a worldwide media attention. However, the Galzig is not only noted for its ski fun but also for its culinary pleasures. The award-winning kitchen of the Verwallstube, one of the highest located “chef hat” awarded restaurants of Europe, does not only seduce the winter fan but also the culinary high flyer. GAMPEN/KAPALL The Arlberg Kandahar - the spectacular race course in St. Anton am Arlberg. Who wouldn‘t want to ski in the tracks of famous ski legends and test their sporting abilities on the challenging almost vertical black run from Kapall down to the valley?


The illuminated toboggan run, starting at Gampen is 4.3 kilometres of tobogganing pleasure and is one of the longest toboggan tracks in Tyrol. Traditional mountain hut delicacies and hearty Tyrolean food in the Gampen restaurant cater for a well earned break, with fantastic views across the valley. At 1850m the restaurant is also a great place to either start or finish your day with a drink. RENDL In the past, the Rendl was regarded as a secret hideaway, but with the construction of the new gondola in 2009 this mountain also climbed up the popularity scale. The detour on Rendl is worthwhile, for sun worshippers as well as for those who are looking for wide off piste areas. In addition there is the Stanton Park, a well cared for and prepared fun park where primarily the young freeskier and snowboarder can show off their sporting prowess. Also on the culinary side, one is not forgotten on Rendl, everything on the menu from the traditional shredded pancake to freshly prepared wok dishes lures one into this modern panorama restaurant which entices with its ambiance and quality.

DID YOU KNOW ... …the 38 cable cars and lifts of the Arlberger Bergbahnen AG can transport approx. 59.000 people per hour? …approx. 86% of the pistes can be covered in artificial snow when the 250 snow cannons are in use? ....every evening 29 piste machines prepare the runs to guarantee pure skiing pleasure? … each of these piste machines cost approx. €400.000 and can produce more than 400 hp ? … 25 mountain rescue workers from the Arlberger Bergbahnen AG patrol the ski area for your safety? … the 7 members of the avalanche commission need 4 to 7 tons of explosive per season to blast avalanches to safeguard the pistes for you? 39


Who knows where to find some beautiful places of spiritual energy? Many of the footpaths on the Arlberg lead to some beautiful vantage points and views which can be explored alone or as part of a guided group. Hiking guides from St. Anton will take you to some of their favourite places in nature.

40


I

t is said that a beautiful walk always leads you to yourself. Some people might think that other destinations are more appealing but this is not the case. Because there is no better feeling than being at one with yourself and with nature. The Arlberg region is ideal for this because here you will find yourself on the ‘top floor’ and even in the villages, you can sample a taste of the fresh mountain air. Arlberg is also home to numerous idyllic locations where you can find peace, enjoy the views and experience life with all the senses. Those who seek, find These magical locations are generally not based right by the road but instead can be found in more remote spots, at the heart of nature. Exploring them is a pleasure – whether alone, as a couple or in a group of like-minded people with a hiking guide. A comfortable and easy footpath leads to many of these spiritual places but some routes present more of a challenge and demand higher fitness levels. Others should only be completed by sporty visitors and lead up into the skies. Ferdl’s tip: the Faselfad Lakes Brisk steps will take you to one of the favourite places of hiking guide Ferdl Nöbl from St. Anton. This place is called ‘Rifa Plo’ and is located in the middle of a meadow with magnificent views of the Lechtal Alps, the Eisenspitze and to the west, the village of St. Anton am Arlberg. This spot looks particularly beautiful in the afternoon sun, according to Ferdl. You can walk here from the centre of St. Anton in just 45 minutes without any great effort. The idyllic spot is also recommended for inexperienced hill walkers and is an insider tip, despite its easy accessibility. Ferdl also has a recommendation for experienced mountain climbers with a good level of fitness. Visitors can undertake a challenging 2 hour climb from the Salzhütte to see the Faselfad lakes. These lakes are five blue to turquoise coloured natural treasures which are bound to make even the most hardnosed mountain enthusiasts say “ah”. “When I am up there lying alongside the lakes and looking at the sky, I forget all about the world,” Ferdl explains. Anyone who visits these lakes will be filled with enthusiasm. But you should not set off without a good knowledge of the area because the route is not marked. So the best thing is to ask Ferdl Nöbl or one of the other competent guides to take you with them on their next excursion to the Faselfad Lakes.

› Wolfram is passionate about the Wolcherer Heights

Nikolaus Wolfram, a hiking guide from St. Anton, has taken the Wolcherer and Wolcherer Heights to heart. Craggy, rocky, spectacular? No, it is more of a peaceful place which impresses with its delicate beauty. It can be reached in around 2.5 hours on an easily accessible walk via the Putzenalpe from St. Anton. After following the trail along forest paths for a while, you suddenly come to a clearing with a religious crucifix. A large flower meadow extends out across the saddle. From here, visitors can look out over the entire Stanzertal valley to Landeck, the Lechtal Alps

and the Verwall group. An idyllic spot, perfect for whiling away the time. Nikolas likes to bring his walking groups here. And they usually need a long break after conquering the 600 m of altitude! The journey back is another 1.5 hour walk. But every step is worth it! And where does Geli’s like to go most? One of hiking guide Geli Häusl’s favourite places is located above Flirsch. This idyllic mountain valley in a protected landscape region is called Mösli and impresses her afresh every time she visits. You can’t keep a place like that to yourself and most

of the locals know it too. Geli often brings her guests here and they enjoy admiring the Riffler Ferner glacial ice glittering in the sunshine and its powerful moraine deposits. A lively brook weaves it way along the Mösli mountain plateau and is the reason behind its “Mösli” name, with intensive green moss growing along the gentle embankment. “Another fine spot can also be found above Strengen”, explains Geli. It is called Tanugg and is located on the Dawinalm plateau at the foot of the Eisenspitze, which is why cows can often be found grazing here in summer. They only have eyes for the lush grass while visitors admire the magnificent views, especially the view

across to the 3,000 m high Riffler. “A magical place where you can truly sense the power of nature,” Geli says. “You find yourself up close and personal with the mountain yet on a secure trail to ensure your safety. There is also a small plateau here, which is not often the case in our mountains”. This is not an exhausting route and the spot is just an hour’s walk from Strengen-Obweg. Visitors can choose to return via the Flirscher Skihütte lodge to create a magnificent circular route.

A the Fundschrofen, guests can enjoy magnificent views from the original wooden recliners.

Resting spots with beautiful views Visitors who enjoy wide-ranging views will find what they are looking for at Arlberg. To ensure that they can enjoy these fantastic views to the full, the tourist board and community of St. Anton am Arlberg have set up various viewing platforms and rest points over the last few months: Stockibach Waterfall: the waterfall is easily accessible via the Antoniusweg trail. This beautiful natural trail is steep

but comfortable to walk on and offers magnificent views of St. Anton. The platform extends as far as the waterfall and you can savour the force of this powerful natural spectacle here. Stockibach Spring: also accessible via the Antoniusweg trail. This is a magical place because this is where the water starts its 2,700 km long journey via Rosanna, Sanna, Inn and the Danube to the Black Sea. Munteck: one of the most beautiful ‘corners’ of St. Anton and the surrounding area. Also accessible via an easy

footpath from Nasserein or St. Jakob. Mill at the start of the Mühltobel Gorge: this is not an excessively strenuous route because it is located in the St. Anton resort. The romantic Mühltobelweg mill trail starts at the picturesque Museum Park and leads on along the ‘WunderWanderWeg’ (Wonder Hiking Trail). Knoppen cinema at the Fundschrofen: the Alpenrosenweg Alpine rose trail leads to this location which offers magnificent views high above St. Anton and the Stanzertal valley from some original wooden loungers. 43


Treasure hunt 2.0 with instinct and GPS Walking is an integral part of any summer holiday just as St. Anton is part of the Arlberg. Combining walking with a digital treasure hunt fills children and young people with enthusiasm. Geocaching is a new trend which is opening up new worlds. Across the whole world (hence the use of the term ‘geo’) – and, of course, in the Arlberg mountains.

beforehand on the internet. Those who estimate the time, topography and their own fitness levels correctly will be treated to a special surprise: finding and opening the cache”. Coordination required Experienced geocachers distinguish between three cache types: 1.) traditional, 2.) multi and 3.) mystery cache. The first (the simplest type) can be found using GPS or a smartphone based on specified coordinates and a description on the internet. It could be anything from a simple village stroll to a spectacular high Alpine abseiling session! The location of the second type spans from one station to the next where the components for the final coordinates can be found. A little tip: there is a multi-cache along the St. Anton ‘WunderWanderWeg’ (Wonder Hiking Trail). And the last type involves solving a very tricky puzzle to identify the location – the supreme discipline. At

hunting in many countries across the world. But there is no chance of him and his friends getting bored with some 2.2 million caches currently hidden all over the world. The fascination? “You get to know your own region, your own country and distant goals from a whole new perspective and come across places you would otherwise miss. The problemsolving adds a mental challenge to the sporting activity”. Geocaching is also an exciting blend of adventures in nature and high-tech support. Walking with added value for all the family. Little legs tend to tire a lot less quickly when there is a surprise waiting at the end! Cache In, Trash Out When hiding the caches, there are various criteria which must be observed: “The natural environment must not be changed, access must be possible and the cache should not be too easy to find. The data should then be added to the

After checking, the cache is approved and the search can begin. “Geocachers also help protect the landscape because there is a code of honour that anything which does not belong in the landscape (such as trash) should be gathered up and disposed of. CITO – ‘Cache In, Trash Out’ -– as it is known in the community even has its own Wiki for specialist terms. Travel bugs: not for muggles! Geocachers value pseudonyms or nicknames. And abbreviations.

One special feature are the Trackable Travel Bugs in the form of tags with engraved numbers which travel with the finder from cache to cache, often over a long period of time and across several continents. Experienced travel bug owners outline where their little bugs should be and track their exciting journey on the internet. “Mine is in Prague,” says Christoph proudly. This enthusiasm for the mental aspect of the sport is evident in his eyes. And he shares it with some 6 million people across the world who will go to great lengths to

track down the objects of their desire: “I know geocachers who will travel from afar for a second time if they were unable to find the cache on their first attempt. Many people plan their holidays around the appeal of the caches located there”. A passion which ‘muggles’ or walkers/ non-geocachers cannot understand.

It’s all in the „flow“ at St. Anton Film Festival now in its 19th year, The iconic St. Anton Film Festival, was a new start and continuationat the same time: under new management, with a fresh appearance and international accent, ahead of next year’s anniversary.

F

or almost two decades, St. Anton Film Festival has brought together the greats of the international mountain sport, adventure and extreme sports scenes. Film makers from seven (!) European countries were in attendance – their adventures, however, took place over the whole world, from Canada to Kyrgyzstan. Barbara Zangerl, Ines Papert, Nina Caprez, Gerrit Glomser, Hansjörg Auer, Mick Fowler, Philippe Ribiere, Piotr „Mad“ Korczak, Ueli Kestenholz – to name just a few – chatted to presenters, Heinz Reich (FM4-Radio pro), Flo Orley (Snowboard-Ace) und Lorraine Huber (Freerider) live about their adventures and the motives behind them. In addition to the films and podium discussions, there remained enough time to use the St. Anton film festival as an informal venue to make new acquaintances. Stars and visitors exchanged views about their respective pursuits and, over the four days in Arlberg, maybe one or the other

new rope team was established. The film festival prize, a tidy sum of Euro 2,000.donated by the Arlberger Bergbahnen Cable Car Co., went to Innsbruck film maker,Johannes Hoffmann, for his film titled „Tien Shan – A Kyrgyz Ski Adventure“. The Audience Award (prize money

of Euro 500,- ) was given to the film „Silbergeier“ (Silver Vulture), by Vladimir Cellier, Nina Caprez and Cedric Lachat. The last week in August in 2014 will be time in St. Anton am Arlberg again for: Mountains – People – Adventure, as well as celebrations for a special anniversary!

Special events on the summer stage Two successful new events took place in summer 2013: traditional craftsmanship and authentic folk music on the one hand and a big opera in a comfortable setting on the other. ‘Musica et Artificium’ and ‘Opera in the Park’ are two new event formats which have already become a fixture in the St. Anton calendar.

Get together, watch & enjoy

50

Authentic folk music, traditional crafts, regional treats from ‘back in the day’ and plenty of market ambience – this atmospheric blend known as ‘Musica et Artificium’ was bound to be a success! St. Anton am Arlberg was synonymous with Alpine folk music for the 11th time at the end of June 2013. Ensembles from Tyrol, Vorarlberg, Styria, Carinthia, South Tyrol, South Germany and Switzerland performed music which has been preserved over the ge-

nerations as a form of living culture. Some 20 groups performed throughout the day in the restaurants of St. Anton. At the same time, 35 craftsmen and women from North and South Tyrol and Bavaria demonstrated some professions which have been all but forgotten over the years: wood sculptors, edelweiss and wooden spoon carvers, basket weavers, felters, schnapps distillers, ointment producers and quill makers… At the market stalls, visitors were also able to sample traditional treats like those made by our grandparents’ generation such as the

strange sounding but delicious tasting ‘Honigmuas, Kiachla, Kaskiachla, Krautspatzla, Krapfen and Strauba’ as well as lots of home-made delights from the region.

The international stars were in fine form throughout the three act opera buffa and featured Heidi Adair as Norina, Valerian Ruminski as Don Pasquale, Kerry Jennings as Ernesto and Kevin Blickfelt as Malatesta. The opera was directed by David Schmidt with pianist Justine Verdier responsible for the musical accompaniment to the singing. The 2.5 hour performance on the natural stage flew by, leaving some very enthusi-

The next date for the Folk Music Day and Craft Market has already been set for 28 June 2014 and will hopefully take place in good weather, as planned, at the heart of the pedestrian zone in St. Anton am Arlberg. The full programme can be found on the homepage of the St. Anton tourist board www.stantonamarlberg.com.

astic spectators in its wake. The reasonable admission prices, special flair of the venue and delicious treats being served at the museum snack bar provided a treat for all the senses and secured this event series a fixed place in the town’s annual calendar. Following on from the success of 2013, the decision has already been made to hold a repeat performance in August 2014. The precise programme and performance dates for 2014 will be announced in good time at www.stantonamarlberg.com and www. oper-im-park.webs.com

International stage stars gave a powerful rendition of Donizetti’s masterpiece ‘Don Pasquale’.

A big opera with a difference The tourist board invited guests to enjoy an exceptional open-air musical comedy for the second time since 2012 with three different dates on offer: the play, Gaetano Donizetti’s ‘Don Pasquale’, impressed spectators in the idyllic holiday park infront of the time-honoured museum. Visitors enjoyed Donizetti’s masterpiece in the form of an outdoor stage play, seated either in specially built stands or on picnic blankets. They followed Don Pasquale’s turbulent journey to marital bliss surroun-

On each of the three performance dates, the spectators were impressed by the high quality of the performance and the captivating venue.

„Calling all musicians, let’s play!“ From April to November there is a monthly meet in Pettneu with a very special atmosphere: a regular’s table for musicians at the rustic Gasthof Traube, where everyone gets together – 52

folk musicians as well as eager listeners.


for guests who would like to experience a piece of Tyrolean culture at first hand. „Sometimes lots turn up, sometimes less – we always have a nice time“, says Martin while relaxing during a break between songs, „Everyone plays what they like, or are able to, there is no nervousness. Young people in particular who are learning a new instrument can listen and see how it is done properly, then join in with a group or even play solo.“ There are no predetermined styles to adhere to, so long as what is being played fits in with the Tyrolean and alpine folk music schema. Husband and wife, Elfi and Heinz Stecher from Innsbruck, enter the room with a big „Hallo“ and proceed to entertain those present with a melodious welcome; Elfi on the guitar and Heinz on the „Raffele“ (and if you want to know what that is, you will have to come to the regular’s meet … High Standards Well known folk musicians get together regularly in Pettneu.

It is the Pirschner’s from Pettneu, initiators and driving force behind the musician’s regular get-together. Patriarch Andreas, quickly unpacks his guitar while sons, Martin and Florian, get their Styrian accordion and rhythmic spoons ready.

With Willi on bass, the trio grows in depth.

door opens again and Willi Schranz enters with his bass. In reverse actually, because the bass inevitably comes in first… The trio grows to a quartet and the tonal range deepens. Schranz and Martin Pirschner have been playing together for many years in the live party band, „Arlberg Buam“, which concentrates more on a “rock” sound. Both musicians also perform with the „d’Arlberger“ folk group. Today, however, the programme is „unplugged“, fast-paced and virtuosic. Those listening, many of whom are regular guests, love it.

Open for everything The Pirschners – a name synonymous with quality in the Tyrolean folk music scene – have been organising this monthly meet for the last five years. For people who like to make or listen to music, as well as

Young talent brings “fresh blood” into the folk music scene.

liViNG For Folk MusiC According to Martin, he learned to read music before learning the alphabet. Influenced by the musical environment at home, the boys learned quickly and diligently. They were eager to lean lots of instruments – a trait inherited from their parents. Piano, accordion, zither, harp, vocals, flute, flugelhorn, Jew’s harp, etc. – the Pirschner’s had a wide array of instruments at home. Andi Pirschner did not only work as a folk music teacher (now retired) at St. Anton’s secondary school. He played in the St. Anton Dance Music Band, organised folk music competitions and managed the Arlberg Advent Singers for 35 years. He maintains close contact with musicians across the country, visiting each other frequently at all regular get-

A group of young people aged around 20, who you would expect to be more suited to frequenting a trendy bar, are sitting around one of the tables. Until one of them jumps up, straps his accordion to his chest and plays as if there were no tomorrow. A beginner, as Martin knows, but very, very talented. Then Rosmarie, who you couldn’t actually call “young” anymore, plays a piece on her ocarina. This regular meet for musicians brings the generations together. And the night is by no means over, because even when it is getting late, there is always somebody willing to: “Play it again!”

On two wheels in the ArlBERG world Everything revolves around two wheels in St. Anton in summer. Top events such as the ARLBERG Giro, cycling criterion and bike marathon inspire pros and amateur enthusiasts from all over the world alike. Get in that saddle, and off you go!!

M

ountains and alpine passes, gravel and asphalt – this is where mountain bikers and road cyclists are in their element. Arlberg offers cycle enthusiasts a proverbial alpine „playground“, the likes of which you just can't find anywhere else. St. Anton am Arlberg has long since made its indelible mark on the cycling scene – as the ideal starting point for fabulous tours in Tyrol and Vorarlberg, as well as a racing sports centre of excellence. Upcoming Classic 56

After three successful years since 2011,

the ARLBERG Giro is well on its way to becoming one of the classic races in the Alps. Over 1,200 participants each year – including many famous riders – are keen to put themselves to this test of endurance: How long will it take me to complete the route from St. Anton am Arlberg – Arlberg Pass – Bludenz – Montafon – Silvretta High Alpine Road – Paznauntal and back to St. Anton? After all, 148 kilometres and 2,400 metres in altitude difference more than justify the “cycling marathon” description. Local hero Andi Traxl from Team Mooserwirt Ridley St. Anton

considers it to be one of the season’s absolute highlights: „The ARLBERG Giro is my home race! This has turned into a sensational event. Getting it on the road involved a huge amount of effort and dedication, but now increasing numbers of my cycling marathon colleagues are getting involved and coming to St. Anton.“ The organisation is perfect and thanks to St. Anton’s partners, Audi, participants can look forward every year to exclusive escort vehicles – the original Audi safety cars from DTM and Le Mans. Next date: 3rd August 2014.


diVErsitY For iNdiVidualists Beyond organised tours, cycle sport enthusiasts will find a hugely diverse choice of routes in St. Anton. From the starting point at ARLBERG-well. com, routes of differing lengths and degrees of difficulty spread out to the east and west, through stunning alpine scenery. How about, for example, a trip to the neighbouring province of Vorarlberg? Or a tour over the Alrberg to Bregenz, the Three Passes route in Bregenzerwald or an uphill climb along the Silvretta High Alpine Road! The Tyrolean side is filled with testing challenges including the Hahntennjoch Ridge, Pitztal Valley with the Piller Saddle or the ascent to the Kaunertaler Glacier. Andi Traxl effuses: „For me, these are the optimum training grounds, every cycled kilometre is so much fun!“ More information on: www.stantonamarlberg.com and www.arlberg-giro. com

arlbErG bikE MaratHoN Those who prefer gravel instead of asphalt under their wheels have every reason to rejoice: The mountains around St. Anton have a plethora of mountain bike routes and single trails – around 200 kilometres in total. All routes begin at ARLBERG-well. com and are uniformly signposted. With trails suitable for all levels of fitness, you are bound to find a route that suits.

a CritErioN For WiNNErs Audiences storm to St. Anton’s pedestrian zone to witness yet another road bike racing highlight, traditionally held on the eve of the cycling marathon: Elite riders deliver exciting duels at the International Cycling Criterion on a technically challenging and highly visible circuit. Many stars from Austria, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein and Switzerland use this opportunity to warm up for the ARLBERG Giro and offer spectators a great show.

You don’t have to begin with the Arlberg Bike Marathon, which is the third and tough discipline of the legendary „Arlberg Eagle“ annual triathlon. 41 kilometres, 1,400 metres in altitude difference and up to 24 percent gradient: this sporting challenge demands everything of its contestants. The extreme athletes start from St. Anton’s pedestrian zone to great applause, before heading out on the challenging route over the Verwall and Moostal Valley. Home favourite Andi Traxl was first over the finishing line in 2013, received by rapturous applause from a huge home crowd. The next Bike-Marathon will take place on 23rd August 2014.

You can see me better in the snow! For the last five years, Dr. Augustin Kouanvih from Togo has been a priest in St. Anton am Arlberg and head of the Upper Stanzertal valley pastoral region. He spoke with the St. Anton Revue about changes to his life plans, the Tyrolean winter, his fear of flying and his pet project: the renovation of ‘his’ parish church. His middle name, by the way, is ‘Sunday’s child’! 58


H

ow did you come to be the priest for St. Anton?

It was never planned. I studied theology in my homeland of Togo and was ordained as a priest. I was secretary to my bishop there and he sent me to Innsbruck and the Collegium Canisianum to study for a PhD in canon law which I completed. I was then supposed to go to Rome before returning to Togo. But things changed in 2004: I was appointed as the priest of Rum/Neu-Rum near Innsbruck – initially on a temporary basis. But I stayed there until the 6th September 2008… …and then you were appointed to St. Anton? Exactly, a surprise for all concerned. For me, for the parish, for the community and for everyone in the pastoral region! So how did that happen? Priest Bruno Decristoforo was the pastor here for 25 years but didn’t want to make a big fuss about his departure. One day he gathered all the important people in the ministry together and introduced me as his successor. Did they look on the “black” side to start with? Pastor Augustin surrounded by his ministrants.

(Laughs) No, not literally. But it was a big change for the people there. I was well received and integrated quickly. I always try to do the best I can - and this goes down well with people. One of my key philosophies is: it is the person that counts, regardless of race or whether they are foreign or not. So back to Togo briefly: you would not expect to find a big Christian community in a small state in West Africa? That boils down to the history of colonialism. German and Austrian missionaries brought Roman Catholic beliefs to Togo around the turn of the 20th century. Today around 30% of people in Togo are Christian. The funny thing is, we even sing some of the same songs like those from the ‘Gotteslob’ hymn book, except in our own language. The remaining believers subscribe to natural worship, Sunni Islam and unfortunately to sects which give people money if they agree to follow a specific belief. And you were christened there too. But Augustin is not your Christian name? Yes my real name is Augustin Kouanvih. But my official tribal name is Ahlonko and my middle name is Kouassi. We are named after the day on which we were born. For me that was Sunday – so I am a

‘Sunday’s child’! The day of the Lord – that fits perfectly! Oh yes! How did you feel when you arrived in Tyrol for the first time? Cold! It took me a while to get used to the cold temperatures. And the long winter! But my skin colour has a big advantage in the snow – you can see me better! You certainly have plenty of self-deprecation and good humour? Absolutely. A member of my congregation recently said to me when I returned from holiday: “You’ve got really brown!” I had to laugh, you need lots of humour in life. And when you came to the Arlberg for the first time? The highest mountain in your homeland is barely 1,000 m high- I’m hesitant to use the word ‘only’…! The Tyrolean mountains are very imposing. This beautiful place has become a second home to me. I went back home

last August - it was fantastic to see my friends and family and breathe in the air of my homeland. I would go home a lot more often if I weren’t so scared of flying! It is impossible to travel to Togo by train. Coming back here also felt like returning home though! Speaking of mountains and snow in Arlberg: are you a member of the legendary Arlberg Ski Club? Yes although I can’t ski! At the last World Cup race in January of this year, we joked that I should take part in the next world championships and represent Togo! To be honest: I am also a member of the At. Anton voluntary fire service and I don’t have much time for that either. And I’m proud to be a member of the Brotherhood of St. Christoph. Your biggest project to date during your time in office has been the renovation of the St. Anton parish church. You were a driving force in giving the church a brand new look. Are you proud of what has been achieved? I love going to work every day! The church has always has such a pleasant atmosphere since it was renovated and

Dr. Augustin Kouanvih was born on Sunday 27 August 1961 and has been a priest in St. Anton am Arlberg and head of the Upper Stanzertal pastoral region from Flirsch to St. Christoph for the last 5 years. He speaks German, French (official language in Togo) and English as well as his tribal language of Ewe. He has also studied Latin, Greek, Ancient Greek and Hebrew. So he is ideally equipped to speak to guests from all over the world – and he enjoys it. His laugh needs to be heard! 60

The parish church of St. Anton am Arlberg is actually two churches. The older church was dedicated to the Virgin Mary in 1698 and the newer church - an expansion – was dedicated to St. Anthony of Padua in 1932. Architect Clemens Holzmeister was responsible for the renovation. With the new smaller tower, he created a main emphasis which has injected new life into the whole building. The church underwent general renovation in 2012 both inside and out from the foundations to the roof: new entrance doors in a standardised design, new spruce wood flooring and benches, new electronics and acoustics, a new lighting concept and a new sacristy with WC because: “Human needs exist – even in a house of God” (quote by Karl Raffeiner, Chairman of the renovation committee). All of the works of art and paintings were restored by experts and the fresco paintings were exposed again. A contemporary artistic design adds new areas of emphasis and highlights the handed-down sacred artwork in particular. The main entrance doors and striking new glass windows were produced by skilled craftsmen and women from Tyrol. The public altar, baptistery, ambo, candle stands and sedilia (seats) for the priest and ministrants were renovated and the seating in the chancel turned into loose seating at the request of Priest Augustin. This means that mid-week masses as well as devotions and rosaries can be held in this area.

When sheep shop Michael Ess will never forget the 15th December 2012. On this particular morning, the head of Intersport Arlberg welcomed the most extraordinary „customers“ of his entire career: 80 sheep, that strayed into the shop from St. Anton‘s pedestrian zone.

Pizzeria Ristorante

Dolce Vita Do you love Italian cuisine….? Delicious antipasti Pasta – different varieties Fish – always fresh and very light Meat – exquisitely prepared succulent meat Salads – nutritious and fresh Pizza – tastes exactly howit should taste Wines – exquisite brands from the most renowned wine-growing regions to perfectly complement the Mediterranean spices.

T

he automatic door of this brand new shop just opened of its own accord, as shepherd Raimund Stemberger was herding his animals past it. All of a sudden, one of the animals saw its own reflection in a mirror - and followed the imaginary herd. A security camera and passers-by captured the bizarre scenes on film. After being put on Youtube, the film turned into a full blown internet hit, with over 750,000 clicks! Online news sites around the world picked up on the „Sheep storming the sport store in the Tyrolean Alps“ story. What followed was a veritable avalanche of media reports from all over the world. Invitations fluttered in after the incident to go on talk shows and major international news agencies, as well as TV stations and newspapers were all keen to report on the story. Even the “Neue Züricher Zeitung” took the issue up with amusement. „The Swiss Intersport Group congratulated us on a successful guerrilla marketing campaign. They didn’t want to believe at first that it all happened by accident“, explains Ess. The staff were initially dumbfounded. In the blink of an eye, a woolly armada was pouring into the shop. After the first shock had worn off, everyone was soon laughing about what had happened – despite the associated extra cleaning and damage caused by bikes and sunglasses being knocked over. „The promotional value far exceeded the damages caused“, smiles Ess in retrospect. Organising a regular route for the sheep through his shop is, however, something that won’t be happening in the near future!

…..Then you will love our Italian cooking using old traditional and family recipes. In our restaurant, you can enjoy your meal soaking up the modern Mediterranean atmosphere to complement our delicious dishes and drinks.

sHEltEr For alpiNists

The mountain huts around St. Anton am Arlberg have always been a popular photo motif, as this pictorial journey into the past shows. The pictures date back to the late 1930â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or early 1940â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;s. The Leutkircher Hut and Ulmer Hut still exist under their original names and at their original sites, even though they have been repeatedly expanded and modernised since. The Konstanzer Hut is also still in existence, although after being destroyed by a landslide in 1988, it was relocated to a safer position 700 metres away from its original site. The former Wagner Hut was turned into the guest house we know today as Rasthaus Ferwall. 80

The photos were kindly made available to St. Anton am Arlberg Tourist Board by Prof. Kurt Bauer from Kirchzarten/Germany
