Recognised around the world as the cradle of alpine skiing, St. Anton am Arlberg offers state-of-the-art lift systems and exciting après ski without losing touch of the rich cultural roots the region was founded on.
St. Anton is part of Austria’s largest inter-connected ski area, Ski Arlberg, which also includes the villages of St. Christoph, Stuben, Lech, Zürs, Warth and Schröcken.
A variety of gradients make up the 303 km pistes (connected by 88 lifts) that cater to eager first-timers and snow-hardened experts. An array of ski schools are available for the less experienced, whilst the 200 km of designated off-piste terrain and famous Stanton snow park present some more challenging options.
Down in the valley, the beautiful mountain town itself offers a wide range of eateries and numerous off-slope activities, from climbing walls to sleigh rides.
It’s clear to see why St. Anton features on pretty much every ‘best of’ list when it comes to ski areas, as once you get there, you’ll never want to leave!
