For the last three winters Supertravel ski host Martin Pearce has been showing our guests the best slopes of the vast Arlberg region.

     Our ski hosting programme runs twice a week in each resort meaning you have all the help you need in getting to grips with the piste map, finding the best snow and the most well located mountain restaurant.

     Our trained ski hosts set a pace that suits the group and enables intermediate skiers and above to benefit from the host’s fund of local knowledge.

     Martin knows he has one of the best jobs in the Alps and that’s probably why he always seems to be smiling!

     He generally takes it easy when he’s out with the guests but he certainly didn’t hold back in the last week of the season in St Anton when he threw caution to the

 

wind and tore down the mountain at what some would say reckless speed – although fortunately not with guests following him this time.

     His performance was something to savour, as he was the first Brit home in the resort’s Weisse Rausch race, a legendary Alps event skied over a nine-kilometre course from the Valluga top station down to the village.

     Martin, 24, from Poole, Dorset, whose duties as well as hosting include driving guests around St Anton in a 4x4 and maintaining the chalets, finished a highly creditable 141st out of 383 male racers, with a time of 15 minutes 11 seconds. Any time inside 18 minutes is considered good, with the event attracting a high quality field including former top racers.


 

     ‘This year I was really chuffed with how I had done,’ said Martin, pictured above.

     ‘I not only beat my time from the previous year but came around 100 places higher and was the fastest Brit. And conditions were tricky too, with masses of slushy moguls. I was delighted to see the Supertravel team cheering for me at the finish line.’

     Martin will be back with us again this season and hoping to show even more of our clients the hidden gems of the Arlberg.

     Not many holiday skiers venture to Sonnenkopf or know the detailed route of the ‘White Circle’ which is a complete ring of the Lech and Zurs resorts.

     This means apart from being some of the best skiing on your lift pass – it’s quiet. Knowledge is Powder!
