Here is the shuttle information for arriving sprinters



  • Arriving at Friedrichshafen Airport: Train to Bludenz (about 2 - 2,5 hours)
  • Arriving at Zürich Airport: Train to Bludenz (about 2 - 3 hours)
  • Arriving at Innsbruck Airport: Train to Bludenz (about 2 - 3 hours)
  • Arriving at Munich Airport: Train to Bludenz (about 4 - 5 hours)



Arriving by car: drive to Partenen, Vermuntbahn

Important: Try to arrive in Bludenz as early as possible (before 4pm). Departure shouldn't be before 11am from Bludenz on the 25th!!!

In Bludenz we will organize shuttles to Partenen. There it goes up with a cable car and then with a "tunnel-shuttle" to the snow-sprint house. So it will be a very exciting arrival! :-)

Leisure time:

There is a skiing lift as well as a cross-country ski run on the frozen lake just at the front door of the house.

If you want to stay longer or come earlier: the Montafon is very popular for winter sports! You can also stay at the Bielerhöhe.


We thank for the emergency equipment which is provided by Austrian Red Cross / Unit Vorarlberg / Rescue Unit Dornbirn.


How much?

480 Euros p.p. (incl. 20% tax/vat). This includes: shuttle from Bludenz to Partenen, cable car Vermuntbahn, tunnel-shuttle, full board and lodging with all-day-brunch, dinner for all days and internet. It's NOT possible to pay for less than the whole week as the attendee-list is limited.
