St. Anton

Non-stop on- and off- slope action and pretty village base. St Anton has, along with Wengen and Murren, a strong British tradition. From the 1920s, successive generations learned to ski here, adopting the distinctive ‘feet together’ Arlberg style. It has also become one of the world’s Meccas for ski bums. That’s a reflection of the wonderful, tough off-slope runs available in the bowls below the Valluga – the best that Austria has to offer. In good snow conditions they are superb. Sadly, conditions are often less than perfect except just after a fresh snowfall, because of their south-facing aspect. But if you are lucky with the snow you’ll have the time of your life. There’s a lot to offer adventurous intermediates too, both locally and at Lech and Zurs, a short bus-ride away.


St. Anton is a terrific destination for singles to meet people and ski during the winter and enjoy outdoor activities during the summer. Prices are high, but the food, accommodations, and nightlife make it worthwhile.

St. Anton is also good for couples that want to get away together. The conditions are perfect for lovers, with the awe-inspiring mountain vistas and cozy little restaurants waiting after a hard day on the slopes. It makes it the perfect setting to spice up that old romance for seniors, as well.

Families will find pretty good childcare here. There are also children’s ski school programs available. There is a wide choice in family-oriented restaurants where families can sit down and enjoy a meal together.

St. Anton offers great skiing, and is the perfect setting for group activities during any time of the year, as it offers about the same amount of sports activities and entertainment on the bill year around. There is always a lot to do and all kinds of special packages offered, so check with you local travel agent for all the details. You’ll find plenty to do in the way of hiking and mountain climbing here, and the scenery is unbeatable.
