Stuben, the cradle of alpine skiing
Stuben can credit its fame as the home of skiing to Hannes Schneider who was born here in 1890. He founded and managed the ski school in St. Anton. As the head of the school, he is also credited with the invention of the Alrberg crouch position and the stem Christie.
He gained world notoriety in the 30s thanks to the ski films shot by Arnold Fanck. “Das weiße Rauschen” was a legendary film shot in 1931 on the Arlberg. The film is still a rousing movie for its imposing depictions with the best skiers of the time.
On the way from the slopes back to the APRÈS POST HOTEL you will encounter the bronze statue of local artist Udo Rabersteiner, which depicts Hannes Schneider in one of his typical poses. At the HANNES SCHNEIDER BAR the drink menu features timeless classics and modern innovations. It would be unthinkable not to have a “Hannes” in his honour.
