St Anton, Austria
We hope this resort guide to St Anton is useful. This is one of the best 'high alpine' ski resorts in the world with a vast ski area (known as the Arlberg region) that covers the local mountains as well as those of neighbouring St Christoph, Lech and Zurs. For competent skiers and boarders with enormous stamina who are in search for non-stop action then look no further!
St Anton has some of the most consistently challenging and extensive slopes in the Alps and the après ski to match. The off-piste terrain in the bowls beneath the Valluga are a haven for powder monkeys. However, although the beginners' slopes are satisfactory there are very few confidence boosting blues & reds for the less adventurous intermediates and beginners to progress to. The easier skiing can be found on the Rendl mountain or in Lech and Zurs.
St Anton has a great collection of accommodation, including 5 star luxury hotels and luxurious chalets. However, the resort is best known for its many bars and clubs that rock from mid afternoon until the early hours. Apres-ski commences in the Mooserwirt and Krazy Kanguruh on the slopes above the village; by 4pm tables become dancing platforms for high-spirited ski boot clad revellers celebrating a good day on the slopes.
There are many great bars and clubs in town too for those that don't want to walk far back to their luxury chalets. St Anton has many bars staying open until well into the early hours for those that just can't get enough. The Arlberg-well.com centre offers swimming, skating, fitness and pampering facilities for those looking for off-slope diversions.
