Warth-Schroecken is one of three main ski areas in Bregenzerwald offering snow-sure family skiing, good off-piste possibilities and a choice of competitively priced accommodation.
It’s also linked to Lech and is a part of the massive Arlberg ski area with over 300kms of marked runs and 200km of off-piste. Situated 10km apart, either side of the ski area, Warth and Schroecken are pretty alpine villages with a good snow record (an average snowfall of 11 metres each winter). They border Lech and are liked to it, and the rest of the Arlberg resorts including St Anton, by the two-way Auenfeldjet lift.
Warth-Schroecken has its own efficient high speed lift system and good facilities for beginners and children close to the main lift stations. The local ski terrain is best for beginners and advanced skiers interested in skiing off-piste but there are challenges on piste as well, particularly around the Jageralp Express lift. There’s not a huge amount of classic red run skiing, but what's on offer is good and there's plenty more in Lech and Zurs, which is easily accessed through the lift system.
Diedamskopf and Daműls are also nearby although they are not connected by lift. There are lots of good value family friendly accommodation, from budget self-catering apartments to luxury 4-star hotels and good quality 3-star hotels in between; and it's typically cheaper than comparable accommodation in better known Austrian ski resorts.
Apres ski is a low key affair. Warth and Schrocken are small ski villages so there's not a great deal to do in winter besides skiing and other wintersports including winter walking, cross-country skiing, dog sledding, snow shoeing and tobogganing.
