Likelihood of triggering
Triggering is likely, even from low additional loads, on many steep slopes (steeper than 30 degrees). In some cases, numerous large and often very large natural avalanches can be expected.
Location & Getting to Warth-Schröcken.
Tips for a pleasant and comfortable arrival.
The towns of Warth and Schröcken are located in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg, near the Tirol border.
For your journey to Schröcken please enter the postcode 6888 into your navigation system.
For your journey to Warth please use the postcode 6767, since around 600 kilometres away in Lower Austria there is another town called "Warth".
Please be mindful too that due to our altitude location (1269m and 1500m) in the winter lots of snow lies in the towns and that during your stay heavy snowfall may also occur within a short space of time.
Snow clearing work is done on a regular basis so access roads are rarely closed.
But please note that the relevant winter equipment can be necessary at any time!
Winter tyres are compulsory in the winter. We recommend that you bring snow chains with you in your car.
(These are also available to purchase at many petrol stations and in the Spar shop in Schröcken!)
Winter road closures
Please note that the L 198 between Lech and Warth is permanently closed.
Warth-Schröcken is therefore not accessible via the Arlberg pass (via St. Anton - Lech)!
