Free-ride story & skiing pioneer – a revolutionary priest by the name of Johann Müller
The Warth-Schröcken skiing region can look back with immense pride on a long history of free-ride skiing. Priest Müller first took to the slopes at night in secret in the year 1894. The ski schools in Warth and Schröcken will show you the secret and most beautiful places to ski.
Tip of the hotel:
- Priest Johann Müller skiing tour - on the trail of the legendary priest in the Hochtannberg. In the year 1894, priest Müller finally had enough of tramping through the deep snow to the neighbouring village of Lech and ordered two wooden boards from Sweden that enabled him to glide across the snow. The rest, as they say, is history. This tour takes you away to a time before long the era of piste bullies and ski lifts.
