Slamming on the ski slope

When the Snow Volleyball European Tour makes a guest appearance in St. Anton am Arlberg, you'll feel a real beach vibe in the snow! Hundreds of spectators will cheer on the international volleyball elite in St. Anton for the sixth time from 10th to 12th April, as they duck, dive and slam in unusual terrain. The playing field at Rendl Beach (2,030 metres) is not sandy and warm as usual, but frosty - which does nothing to prevent the 32 women's and men's teams from achieving top performances in their battle for overall victory.
