ALPEN.Snowshoeing

A great alternative to fun on the slopes, snowshoeing offers a look at the great outdoors at a more leisurely pace. The squeaky crunch of snow beneath your boots, the wind dancing across the canopy of trees and the warm heave of breath as you trudge through wintry woods are sounds of accomplishment.

Snowshoeing is for those who crave the soft silences of nature without the hustle and bustle of crowded resorts. From an easy trek on flat groomed trails to a physical challenge making your own tracks, snowshoeing is for all levels.

"Alpine Wellness"

Tiroleans like to play in thin air, where the charming lack of oxygen makes us feel healthier and better than we do at the lower altitudes. The positive effects of the bracing mountain climate can be increased still further by physical activity. Top athletes have long exploited this effect with what has become known as “altitude training” for which you need just a moderate oxygen deficiency as found at “medium altitudes” like in St. Anton am Arlberg (1,304 meters above sea level). AMAS, the Austrian Moderate Altitude Study has proven significant (often staggering) improvement for common illnesses such as high blood pressure, metabolic disorders, excess body weight and cardiovascular diseases. Exercising at altitude improves stamina and fitness. Why? Reduced oxygen in the inhaled air stimulates the production of red blood cells which causes old blood cells to be eliminated and replaced by new, young blood cells. The result? You feel totally rejuvenated! The new cells are better able to supply the body’s tissues with oxygen, circulation improves and with it your physical performance. You feel fresh, revitalised and more relaxed. Where else could you find benefits like these but up here in the mountains?

So fit a little medium-altitude activity into your St. Anton itinerary, strap on some snowshoes and see the beneficial effects of “Alpine Wellness” for yourself!
