The resort is not just skiing and après though, the village is also incredibly charming; with the majority of the town made up of traditional Austrian chalets with plenty of character. There is also an abundance of brilliant restaurants here ranging from Thai food to fondue.
St. Anton is part of the renowned Arlberg ski area. There are over 300km of pisted runs here as well as another 200km of unmarked piste; plenty for a weekend skier who’s worried that they will get bored. The skiing ranges as high as 2,800m and the resort is known for having a brilliant snow record right through the season; making it a great spot for a short break even well into April.
If you’re looking for challenging skiing, look no further. The Arlberg is one of the best hubs for off-piste skiing in the Alps. There are plenty of tough powder bowls to keep you entertained over a 4 night stay. There are also a few steep and tough black runs to tackle such as Kandahar and The Fang. Skiers looking to test their mettle can try quickly descending from the top of Valluga down to the bottom of Galzig for some adrenaline-filled skiing.
St. Anton is great for activities off the mountain. Those looking for a weekend of partying have come to the right place. Try Mooserwirt and Krazy Kanguruh for some traditional Austrian après filled with steins of beer and live music. If you’re looking for great food, try the Underground for a fantastic fondue or the Bodega Bar for some sublime Spanish tapas. St. Anton also has shoeshoeing, tobogganing and snowmobiling for those who don’t want to ski on their short break.
