A time travel to winter times of the 1950s and 1960s.
We took some time and picked out interesting photos from the Vorarlberg State Library showing the Hotel Steffisalp and the town of Warth. Join us on a virtual journey through time to the Fifties and Sixties, when the Hotel Steffisalp was still called Hotel Lechtalblick and the ski area is hardly recognizable!
Read more about the history of the Warth-Schröcken ski area and our hotel by visiting this site.
The region of Warth in 1954
Below you will find a couple of vintage photos of Warth from 1954. You can see the view of Warth from Lechleiten. In the background the Wartherhorn (2,368 m) is visible.
Vintage photos – dated 1956
This time the old photos show the T-bar lift with a view of the Biberkopf (2,602 m) and details from the village – such as the parish church of St. Sebastian in Warth.
1964: Images of the chairlift at Steffisalp
Do you remember the old chairlift on the Steffisalpe? Take a ride with us again – with the help of these historical photos from 1964!
1966: Gasthaus Lechtalblick at Steffisalp in Warth on Arlberg mountain
The following archive recordings are particularly interesting – they show the Pension Lechtalblick, the building that is now the Hotel Steffisalp! Click your way through interesting images from the time when skiers in front of the hotel were only transported uphill with a single chair lift. In addition, the parking lot shows some delicacies for classic car fans!
We hope you enjoyed this blast from the past as much as we did & look forward to seeing you again in the near future in our beautiful Warth!
