Destination Info

The St Anton am Alrberg village in the Tyrolean Alps,is otherwise known as the birthplace of alpine skiing due to the fact that the winter sports pioneer, Hannes Schneider developed his revolutionary skiing technique here nearly 100 years ago. This technique would go on to become the modern-day alpine skiing technique practiced and taught around the world.

It is no wonder that St Anton is rated amongst the top five ski resorts in the Alps, as it is the biggest connected ski area in Austria’s Arlberg region, with fast lift connections to the neighboring Lech. It is one of Europe’s snowiest areas and apart from its efficient lift system, it also has a picturesque town with a bustling après ski life.

Apres Ski

The party atmosphere in St Anton is legendary. What better way to end a full day on the slopes with a drink at one of the many bars in the area. We highly recommend visiting the famous Mooserwilt, well known for its parties, events and live DJ sets.

Another bar we suggest is the Krazy Kanguruh which has a large terrace which transforms into the largest open-air dancefloor in the Arlberg, perfect for enjoying a drink from sun dawn to dusk.

Apart from the crazy nightlife, St Anton is the perfect spot to enjoy a good meal. There are various options for cafes and restaurants in the area where you can try traditional Tyrolean flavors as well as international cuisine.

Don’t hesitate to try the food at Der Grieswirt, for simple, affordable Austrian food within a traditional setting.

Another one of our favorites is the restaurant at hotel Schwarzer Adler, with its charming ambiance, extensive wine list and a menu of mouthwatering Austrian flare.

SKI INFO

St. Anton Ski Terrain – Beginners

St Anton has several beginner slopes at valley level. These are included in a special beginners’ lift pass which also allows access up the Fang chair, from where you can follow an easy blue run back to the village. Additional beginners’ slopes can be found up the mountain at both Gampen and Rendl, but to access these you will need a standard ski pass. Gampen also has an easy run back to the village, but otherwise St Anton offers limited options for easy -intermediate terrain for beginners.

St. Anton Ski Terrain – Intermediates

St Anton is a good resort for confident intermediates, but not at much for timid ones. There are some easy blue runs, but they tend to be quite isolated and reaching them can involve considerable planning in order to avoid trickier sections. Among the better options for early intermediates are the blues on Rendl above the mid-station, and the long 64 blue run back down to St Christoph. Beware of the Steissbachtal run though, the main blue back to St Anton from Galzig, which is notorious for bumps and crowds at the end of the day. Stronger intermediates have lots of options in all sectors of St Anton’s ski area. Among our notable intermediate runs are the long piste down to Alpe Rauz from Schindler Spitzer, and the shady reds on the front side of the Stuben area.

St. Anton Ski Terrain – Experts

St Anton is one of the best ski resorts in the world for advanced and expert skiers, with numerous black runs dotted around, the steepest of which is the Fang piste below Gampen. However, the resort’s expert reputation is largely built on its off-piste possibilities. St Anton’s off-piste includes ski routes which are both marked and avalanche controlled, but not prepared or patrolled. These can be found all over the ski area, marked as red or black depending on their steepness, with some of the best and most famous routes located in the Valluga/Schindler Spitzer sector. More serious off-piste possibilities also abound well away from the main ski area, including routes from the top Valluga cable-car station down to Zürs, which are only suitable for true experts accompanied by a guide.

St. Anton Ski Terrain - Snowboarders

St Anton is known as one of the best freeriding resorts in Austria, as it consists of 180km of off-piste routes and has excellent terrain for snow enthusiasts of all levels. If you are on the lookout for more challenging slopes you may head towards the top of the Valluga lift, or to Rendl Beach for the 320m-long St Anton Park – a popular hangout for snowboarders. The park has three sections – Proline, Medium Kickerline and Jibline – with a range of jumps, rails, kickers and boxes.
