Electric swing & shop-architecture as a game of contrasts
The store design and gentle electric swing as background sound make it easy to groove into the rhythm of the Arlberg ski region. Inside, the two-story buildung has a completely used look with gray-sprayed concrete walls and exposed brick walls. A large tree which was blown over by the wind serves as the cash desk. Outside and inside, hay sticks - so called „Hanza“ - provide nostalgic eye-catchers of the typical Arlberg flair. This play of contrasts - old and new, traditional, and modern - creates the perfect stage for a high-quality product world. The ski rental in the basement is also ''different'': the customer can choose from free-standing ski racks and has a unqiue and large selection of different models.

In the basement, a virtual reality corner awaits our customers. How abaout a fresh powder run, for example? Lets'go! Put on the virtual reality glasses and you can experience the coolest Arlberg adventures up close and personal in 360° videos.
