There has been a prominent addition to Ski-Club Arlberg (SCA). Norwegian skier Ole-Christian Furuseth has been admitted to the SCA social meeting in Stuben as a new member of the best-known ski club in the world.
The SCA social meeting for the Stuben chapter takes place weekly at Hotel "Mondschein". The parents of Norwegian slalom racer Ole-Christian Furuseth lived in the same hotel during the World Ski Championships in neighbouring St. Anton am Arlberg. Hotel manager Werner Walch strove to recruit prominent Norwegians as new members of Ski-Club Arlberg. Successfully. SCA chapter representative Franz-Josef Mathies was recently able to receive 34-year-old ski racer Ole-Christian Furuseth as a new member of Ski-Club Arlberg.

In addition to sport, another theme runs through the 120-year history of Ski-Club Arlberg – conviviality. Even the founding of the club occurred in the company of good friends at the St. Christoph hospice. For decades, SCA club evenings have also taken place in Stuben, at which new members are admitted and locals and guests meet in a cosy atmosphere.
