The Tyrolean resort of St Anton is one of Austria’s premier winter sports resorts. Located in the Arlberg region, here the snow is virtually guaranteed, the powder can be amazing and the views breathtakingly beautiful, especially on a blue day. St Anton’s ski area spans 340km and offers 270km of well-groomed pistes to enjoy. Much of the mountain is suited to advanced and strong intermediates, though there are some cruisy slopes for intermediates and a beginners’ area.
Food & Bars
AccommodationSt Anton attracts crowds from around the world and as such, it can feel crowded and a little chaotic. The main street is car free. As you’d expect, the village has masses of accommodation to suit all budgets, both in the heart of the village and further out. If you’re in St Anton to ski and party, you’ll want to stay in a hotel in the main street of Dorfstrasse where you can walk to the local restaurants and bars. If you’re looking for quieter evenings, St Christoph is peaceful and family friendly with easy access to the slopes. You may also like to stay in Oberdorf or Gastig, which are to the west of the village and higher up, or Stadle, Dengert and Moos which are further away. From these out-lying villages, you’ll need to get a bus into and out of the main centre. St Anton is a short bus ride to Lech-Zürs and Klösterle, which are included in the Arlberg ski resorts pass.
Skiing & BoardingSt Anton is paradise for advanced skiers and boarders! Here you’ll find 340km of ski area, 270km of well-groomed pistes and endless fantastic powder… St Anton is known for its steeps, cliffs, gullies, huge powder filled bowls and challenging off-piste runs. The possibilities are endless! Strong intermediate skiers will enjoy the terrain in the Rendle area while less confident intermediates will relish the pleasant cruisy runs in the Galzig. If you’re a beginner, head to the gentler slopes in the Nasserein end of town or book into one of St Anton’s great ski schools before venturing to more challenging areas.
ActivitiesAside from some of the best snow you’ll ever experience, this stunning resort has a network of cross-country ski trails covering almost 40 km, a fun park, an illuminated toboggan run, ice rinks for skating and curling. There’s also a wellness centre with an indoor pool, sauna and steam baths and a multi-function sports centre with numerous indoor activities, diverse ball games and climbing. Looking for entertainment? Don’t miss the weekly Schneetreiben – “The Snow Must Go On” ski show; the “New Orleans Meets Snow” music festival; or the iconic “White Thrill” race.
Getting There & AroundThis breathtakingly beautiful resort is easy to get to by car or plane but most exciting to get to by train. That’s because, at 1304m above sea level, St Anton’s international express train station is the highest train station in Europe. Railjet-trains and the Venice-Simplon Orient-Express stop at St Anton. Innsbruck is the closest major airport, and from here you’ll need to get a shuttle for the last 100km to the resort.
