Resort overview

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

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

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 give 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. 

Skiing in the resort

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.

Skiing in St Anton is particularly suited to confident intermediates and experts due to its 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 also 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 heavy snowfalls, and has its best average snow levels at the end of the season in April.

**Brand new Flexenbahn cableway, brand new this season 2016/2017, links the Arlberg region so you can ski between St Anton, Lech and Zürs – No more pesky buses!** 

Après ski

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, everything is within easy walking distance.

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

Accommodation in St Anton

The majority of our St Anton accommodation is centrally based so you can enjoy everything the pedestrianised village centre has to offer whist remaining close to the slopes. We have chalets, traditional hotels and a new wave of design hotels that have emerged as 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 of short breaks, but you certainly get your money’s worth – It wouldn’t be our most revisited resort if you didn’t.
