St. Anton Ski Resort Austria

St. Anton ski resort is one of the oldest and finest in the Alps, bursting with stylish hotels, restaurants and chalets. Known for its impressive snow record, St. Anton lies deep in the Arlberg ski area in Tyrol at the western end of Austria, one of Europe’s snowiest spots. Just two hours away from three international airports, St. Anton ski resort is remarkably easy to get to with some superb skiing on offer.

St. Anton is a powder skier’s dream. Although its runs are generally more suited to experienced skiers, there’s plenty of skiing here for novices to enjoy too. Intermediate and advanced skiers are in their element thanks to the varied ski area and the extensive network of pistes (305km) and lifts (88).

After a day carving up the mountain, it’s worth checking out St. Anton’s après ski scene. Arguably the spiritual home of après ski, St. Anton ski resort was put on the party map back in the 60s thanks to the two legendary bars either side of the Galzig piste: The MooserWirt and The Krazy Kanguruh.
