About Me

Welcome to Skiguide am Arlberg! My name is Tom Vau and I am the founder of Skiguide am Arlberg private teaching and private guiding. I am glad that you are interested in learning more about me and my projects. I share my passion for the mountains and snow sports with my guests from all over the world. I look forward to meeting you soon!

How it all started...

The start

Growing up in the mountains of the Salzburger Land, I was already standing on the skies that meant the world to me at the age of two and a half. In my youth, I competed in Alpine ski racing for the fastest times through the jungle of flags with the future world and Olympic champions. At the end of my university years, I moved to Lech am Arlberg to make my passion as an independent entrepreneur one of my main professions.

The Here & Now

Since then, a lot has happened and changed, for me in a positive sense. Since 2008, I have been able to introduce my international customers in Lech/Zürs and the entire Arlberg to the beauty of this unique mountain world. As a state-certified ski instructor and ski guide and as a UIMLA Mountain Leader, I show you the most mysterious and beautiful spots of the Arlberg.

Skiguide am Arlberg by Tom Vau includes versatile offers for snow sports enthusiasts in Lech/Zürs, Stuben, St. Anton and the rest of the Arlberg region. These offers are specially tailored to the needs and abilities of each individual person. My goal at the end of our adventure together is always to have experienced a wonderful, eventful and safe day in the mountains.


The future

One should not want to foresee the future, but make it possible. (Antoine De Saint-Exupéry)

It is a pleasure for me to live out my creativity, to continue to be open to new things and to experiment. This is especially true in the areas of nature, sport and art/culture. In the future, I will offer my clients and interested people various events, happenings, trips and much more. In the end, there is always the joy of experiencing beautiful moments together.
