So what's it like?
Cosmopolitan resort with extensive skiing and a lively nightlife.
St Anton is famed for excellent snow conditions, legendary off-piste and one of the best après scenes in Europe. Skiing here can be challenging, especially in the Galzig area, but your pass gives you access to a substantial 340km of varied terrain. This includes the labyrinthine tree runs of Gampen and the under-rated Rendl. After a hard day on the slopes, finish off with a slope-side drink at the infamous Mooserwirt or Krazy Kanguruh, before continuing the party in town. St Anton is a real ski village with oodles of charm, sophisticated spas and a cosmopolitan atmosphere.
The local ski schools have a great reputation, although the learning curve in St Anton is steep. Beginners should stick to Nasserein for gentler blues but confident intermediates have plenty of scope for exploring. It’s well worth keeping in mind some of the ski area’s quieter extremities, such as Stuben. Experts will be in their element with plenty of fun to be had, both on and off-piste.
Make sure you hook up with a local guide to test out the Valluga and jump on the ski bus to neighbouring Sonnenkopf for a powder day. If you’re staying around the centre of town there’s a well-stocked supermarket for supplies and plenty of bars and restaurants for an evening (or two) on the town. It’s not all go though, there’s the quieter end of town at Nasserein and the excellent ARLBERG-well.com spa is perfect for a spot of self-indulgence.
Ski Information Beginners
The St. Anton beginners slopes are just above the village towards Nasserein and are ideal for building your confidence.
Ski Information Intermediates
The Galzig and Gampen areas offer a superb range of blue and red runs to get your skiing legs into gear. The Rendl area on the sunny side of the valley has plenty of challenges while you will find long cruising runs off the Valluga.
Ski Information Advanced
St. Anton is an experienced skier's paradise, with countless challenges on and off-piste - tricky black runs, steep narrow gullies, bump runs and fantastic off-piste trails. The high mountain runs from the Valluga are particularly fearsome, and the Mattun, Schindlerkar and Stuben runs are definite highlights.
