Accommodation Insight

“Europe’s fastest skier”. Hannes Schneider was one of the first people to discover a passion for spending the winter on a pair of skis and to consider snow a sporting challenge. From 1907, at just 17 years of age, he became Arlberg’s first ski instructor, revolutionising skiing with a method based on a system of stemming turns that came to be known as the Arlberg technique. Schneider’s personal style of skiing was very fast and agile, and he had an extraordinary, infectious enthusiasm for movement and acrobatic skill. Known as “Europe’s fastest skier”, he won one international ski race after another.

In 1928 – the same year his namesake Othmar Schneider was born, who was later to become the Austrian Olympic champion and founder of Kristiania Lech – Hannes Schneider, along with the Englishman and skiing pioneer Sir Arnold Lunn, set up the first Arlberg-Kandahar race of Arlberg Ski Club in St. Anton – a combination between downhill racing and slalom. Another legend in the making!

In 1939 Schneider and his family emigrated to the USA, where he took over a ski school in New Hampshire and built up an impressive ski resort in his own style on Mount Cranmore. Schneider died in 1955 in America. Three years earlier, in 1952, Othmar Schneider, by this time no longer simply a namesake but also a friend and skiing protégé of Hannes Schneider, won Austria’s first skiing gold medal at the Winter Olympics in Oslo. It was truly something to celebrate for the skiing pioneer from Stuben!

Luxurious freedom. After a day on the slopes, in fresh powder or on the prepared pistes riding freestyle through the entire Arlberg resort, you can come home to House Hannes Schneider and simply let go. A pre-heated sauna, a steaming bath, a crackling fire, the best hot chocolate in the whole of Arlberg, an aperitif and a highly skilled team, creating a sumptuous tea, all await your return.
