St Anton is the best known of the resorts in the Ski Arlberg region and attracts riders from all over the world to take on its challenging pistes, explore its endless off-piste and to indulge in its very lively après-ski.
St Anton has a great snow record and is a traditional Austrian village with a wealth of bars, cafés, boutique shops and restaurants. Boasting a very cosmopolitan atmosphere, it is without doubt, one of the best resorts in Austria and one of the world's premier ski and snowboard destinations.
Holiday packages are at a premium and, as most hotels only accept bookings on a Saturday to Saturday basis, short stay and weekend availability is very limited.
Whilst there are some beginner slopes directly above the resort, the area is best suited to strong intermediates and experts who will relish the prospect of tackling St Anton’s steeper slopes whether covered in powder or moguls - fresh snow tracks out quickly although local guides will always find the best snow.
The recent lift connection from Lech to Warth-Schrocken and the opening of the Flexenbahn in December 2016 connecting Stuben and Zurs means that the whole of the Ski Arlberg region is now practically lift-linked – a huge 350 kilometres of piste.
North and west-facing Rendl is an under-rated part of the St Anton area and includes some good day tours for freeriders as well as being home to the impressive Stanton Park and Rendl Beach.
Off-piste, St Anton is a freeride mecca and has some of the best off-piste runs in Austria with more options on offer following the lift link from Stuben to Zurs. These are best tackled with a local guide – they really do add local knowledge and value to your holiday not to mention safety and are the only way you’ll get to ski off the back of the Valluga – one of Europe’s must-ski off-piste itineraries.
As if there wasn’t enough excitement on the slopes, by mid-afternoon St Anton’s slope-side bars start to fill up with the party crowd heading for the terraces of the legendary Mooserwirt and Krazy Kangaruh located just one short, wobbly run from the resort centre.
By night, St Anton’s resort centre bursts into life and there is a multitude of bars and nightclubs. Restaurant options are wide-ranging from hearty traditional fare to modern Austrian fine dining, Italian, American steakhouse, Thai and Tapas.
The resort also has its own stylish wellness centre (Well.com) with indoor and outdoor pools, a gym and treatment rooms. Ice skating and sleigh rides are also available locally.
Please note that we do not have Resort Managers or representatives in St Anton. Our guests enjoy the remote services (24/7 mobile) of our Resort Managers who are based in the Kitzbüheler Alps region.
