St Anton ski weekends overview

Situated in the heart of the Arlberg, St Anton ski weekends fully deserve their reputation as world-class. You can expect a ski resort with spectacular scenery, state-of-the-art lift systems and incredibly vast terrain. Renowned for its après-ski, a ski weekend in St Anton offers the perfect combination of skiing and entertainment.

As you may expect in an industry-leading resort, there is constant investment in St Anton. The Flexenbahn  lift (new for 2016/2017) links St Anton to Lech and Zürs, creating the largest linked ski region in Austria with a whopping 305km of pistes. But it’s not just on-slope, because in the town of St Anton you'll find a range of fantastic public amenities such as the ARLBERG-well.com centre for all your spa needs – pools, waterfalls, saunas steam rooms, massage... There's also a wave of hotel refurbishments and spectacular restaurants on the way, plus an impressive concert hall in St Christoph.

The pedestrianised village centre has a bustling, cosmopolitan atmosphere and retains much of the original wooden and stone farmhouse buildings as well as the 17th-century onion-domed church that gives the resort a traditional Tyrolean charm. As you would expect, there is a good selection of shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and accommodation – the resort feels much smaller than you might expect, nothing is too far away. 

St Anton is also easily accessible by transfers or trains from Zurich or Innsbruck airports so it's great for short breaks. For a roundup of non-ski activities, the best bars, restaurants and flexible accommodation click here.

Skiing in St Anton

Forming part of the Arlberg ski area, St Anton offers extensive skiing which links into the neighbouring resorts of Lech, Zürs and St Christoph, covering 305km of pistes and 111 lifts.

Ski weekends in St Anton are particularly suited to confident intermediates and experts due to the challenging runs and fantastic off-piste. Located close to the village are plenty of cruisy intermediate runs, whilst experts will be spoilt for choice with powdery bowls, steep descents, long runs and challenging mogul fields. Off-piste possibilities are endless due to the great powder levels enjoyed in the Arlberg and the enormous diversity of terrain.

St Anton boasts an impressive snow record due to its regular heavy snowfalls and superior average snow levels at the end of the season in April.

Après ski in St Anton

Après-ski in St Anton has a reputation as one of the best in the Alps (if not the world), and once you have visited this resort, it’s easy to see why. The party gets going in the afternoon starting at one of the lively slope-side bars such as the Mooserwirt and Krazy Kanguruh before a fairly hectic run down to town. Basecamp is a nice spot to grab a pre-dinner snack at the bottom of the slopes.

After the evening meal, the celebrations continue throughout the resort until the early hours if you so wish, and thankfully everything is within easy walking distance.

Alternatively, if you're looking for a more relaxing evening, there's something to suit all tastes with quiet hideaways, cosmopolitan cafes and sophisticated live music venues.

Accommodation in St Anton

The majority of our St Anton ski weekend accommodation is centrally based so you can enjoy everything the pedestrianised village centre has to offer whilst still remaining close to the slopes. We have chalets, traditional hotels and a new wave of design hotels that emerged at the beginning of a resort-wide luxury makeover. Ski in, ski out is a rarity in St Anton with just the Mooser Hotel assuming the mantle on the slopes above town.

St Anton doesn’t offer the cheapest short break around, but you'll certainly get your money’s worth – it wouldn’t be our most revisited resort if you didn’t.
