The Name Alkira

Alkira [Al-KEE-rah]: is an Aboriginal name meaning blue sky. We chose this name to reflect the brillant blue skies found here in the Arlberg. Skiing powder snow on a blue bird day is exhilarating, as is exploring nature year round.  

House History

Alkira, previously known as Pension Toni Marth was built with love and furnished with attention to detail in 1980 by Toni and Linda Marth.   

In 2012, Barbara and Christopher purchased the house and renamed it Alkira. 

We both have links to this name through Mt Buller, Australia and the Alkira Ski Club. We have fond memories of our time there and the great friends we made.
