Schruns

Ernest Hemmingway visited this Montafon Region village in 1925, 25 years before the first lift was built. He fell in love with the place, located close to Swiss and Italian borders. Most of the skiing today is above 1850 M, reached by chair or cable car from the village. So its low altitude is not normally a practical problem, and it's an excellent run down when snow cover is complete.
