St Anton is deservedly popular with skiers from around the world and, with 260 kilometres of piste including Lech, Zürs, Stuben and St Christoph and huge off-piste routes, it is easy to see why some rate this as one of the world's premier resorts.
Add to this some of the best après-ski in Europe, a great snow record and a village which still boasts traditional Austrian charm and you have a truly world-class ski and snowboard destination.
If you’re looking for a ski weekend in St Anton, please note we only have very limited short stay availability as most hotels only accept bookings on a Saturday to Saturday basis. Please check out our ski weekends page for our Austrian ski weekend resorts.
St Anton offers top quality skiing and boarding at high altitude with some of the best off-piste runs in Austria that are best tackled with a local guide. Steep and deep or mogulled runs off the top of the resort are what attracts the St Anton enthusiasts.
An award-winning new high speed lift recently replaced the Galzig Cable Car from the resort centre making access into the main area much quicker and there are some superb runs for keen intermediates.
Whilst there are some beginner slopes directly above the resort, the area is best suited to strong intermediates and experts who will relish the challenge of St Anton’s steeper slopes whether covered in powder or bumps (fresh snow tracks out quickly). With the resorts of Lech, Zürs, Stuben and St Christoph all covered on the Ski Arlberg lift pass, there is no shortage of challenging skiing and snowboarding in this vast area.
Snowboarders will also love the terrain as well as the half-pipe and freestyle park.
As if there wasn’t enough excitement on the slopes, by mid-afternoon St Anton’s slope-side bars start to fill up and the party crowd head for the bars and open terraces of the Krazy Kangaruh and legendary Mooserwirt located just one short, wobbly run away from the resort centre. By night, St Anton bursts into life with a wide choice of lively bars and clubs open until the small hours.
For such a well-known ski resort, the village itself is surprisingly small and compact. Its pedestrianised main street offers a wide choice of cafés, bars and good quality traditional and international restaurants as well as sports and fashion shops.
The resort also has its own stylish wellness centre (Well.com) with indoor and outdoor pools, a gym and treatment rooms. Ice skating and sleigh rides are also available locally.
Please note that we do not have full-time Resort Managers in St Anton. Our team are based in Fieberbrunn and are always contactable by mobile.
St Anton is a world-class resort and one of Austria’s most popular resorts with holidaymakers heading here from all over the world. For this reason, hotel prices and availability are at a premium and, with hotels typically booked out on a Saturday to Saturday rotation throughout the winter, the result is that hotels are just not interested in short stay weekends.
Much as we would like to offer flexible breaks to St Anton, our hands are tied.
Nonetheless, we have a couple of hotels which accept minimum 4 night stays in the lower season (pre-Christmas, January and from mid-March) so, if you are set on St Anton for your short break and are happy to pay a premium for the privilege, please get in touch.
