The village of Stams is famous for two things, and they're both evident in the image above. One, to the left and center here, is a Cistercian abbey dating back to 1273 but rebuilt in 1700. The other, to the right, is a ski school (schigymnasium) that trains Austria's foremost young skiers for the Olympic and international competitions for which they're famous. Both the abbey and the schgymnasium's ski jump are visible in the image below.
