Haus Hannes Schneider in Stuben was the birthplace of the famous ski racer and pioneer of alpine skiing as we know it today. The year of Hannes' birth was 1890 but in many ways little has changed in this most traditional village resort within the legendary Arlberg ski area. By all means go and attack the slopes of this famous ski area but be assured that you can relax afterwards using the chalet's spa facilities. At the moment these include a sauna and Jacuzzi but planned for the near future in the next door barn conversion will be a swimming pool, gym and steam room.
The chalet has 6 main guest bedrooms with en-suite facilities. One of these rooms has a mezzanine area for two children making it a good family room. There is also a staff room downstairs which is often taken by a nanny or au pair.
The career of Hannes Schneider is the stuff of legend. In 1907 when he was just 17 years old he became St Anton's first ski instructor - skiing as a tourist activity was born! In 1928 Hannes Schneider set up the Arlberg-Kandahar ski race with Englishman, Sir Arnold Lunn. This event which combined slalom and downhill racing established the love affair that the English have with St Anton and the Arlberg ski area.
Also in 1928 his name's sake, Othmar Schneider, was born. Othmar went on to win Austria's 1at gold medal at the Oslo Winter Olympics of 1952 and later established the 5 star Hotel Kristiania in Lech. In 1939 (just before the outbreak of WWII) Hannes Schneider took his family to America where he established the successful east coast ski resort of Mount Cranmore. Hannes Schneider died in 1955 but his name lives on within the skiing community of the world - he will be forever remembered as the pioneer who made modern skiing a sport for all of us to enjoy.
Take a step back in history and stay in the house where the famous ski pioneer Hannes Schneider was born. Now a luxurious boutique property (managed by the 5 star Hotel Kristiania in Lech) this chalet offers every comfort guests could need for a first class ski holiday.
