Entry in the St. Christoph hospice guestbook (1901)

Ski-Club Arlberg was founded, as the oldest association of its type in the Alps, at the St. Christoph hospice on the occasion of a ski tour. Seven far-sighted men and on woman (the daughter of the hospice proprietor) recognised great potential for the Arlberg region in the new phenomenon of skiing. They were rapidly able to recruit like-minded people for there initiative, in particular through the organisation of ski races. After just five years, the club hab almost 150 members.
