St. Anton, Austria

 

St. Anton is one of the world’s best known resorts. Its exciting terrain attracts the hard-core skiers and has hosted the Alpine Skiing World Championships on several occasions. St. Anton’s reputation also extends to its famous après ski and it certainly has developed in to a cult ski resort, a “must-visit” for all true skiers. Along with the Arlberg ski area, it stretches to 340km of pistes (one of the six largest ski areas in the world) and offers skiing for all abilities.

As other high profiled resorts, beware of the prices. Even though price levels are lower than in nearby fashionable “Lech”, you shouldn’t expect your stay in St. Anton to be a cheap one – but cost aside, this resort has it all and matches the best.

    A bit overrated maybe – straight from the town you don’t have many pistes, you need to spend quite some time getting to other areas and you will be doing that on very crowded transport slopes when 10.000 people need to go from the main lift out in the area. Consider staying in Zurs instead which is much more central to everything and will get you to the best slopes faster in the morning.

    Anyway the town itself is really nice and has a lot to offer in terms of shops, hotels and bars.

    Heading home from a great time in St Anton (4-7 Jan 2018) – we had sooo much snow and it was great. Absolutely coming back – we missed the sun a bit and the snow was overwhelming, but hey – how can you complain about lots of snow 🙂 Looking good for those lucky guys visiting St Anton later in the season!

    Planning on a trip to St. Anton in Jan-feb 2018. Looking for a nice hotel, preferable 3-4 stars but without being over the top expensive. Any suggestions?

    Totally agree – St Anton is the best. Off piste is just sooooo great!!

    Best austrian resort – always plenty of snow, on-piste skiing is top of Austria, off-piste skiing is top of Europe, cool atmosphere – simply great.
