Overview of St Anton

St Anton ski resort, otherwise known as the ski capital of Austria, is one of Europe's top resorts and a mecca for off-piste skiing. A hefty list of accolades, St Anton is one of the world’s best places for competent skiers and especially those with the energy to après like it's 1999. St Anton chalets are among the best in our programme, with a range of sizes, styles and standards to ensure as many skiers as possible have the opportunity to visit the majestic resort.

Yet despite the party atmosphere, there is also a chic but wholesome air to the place. Spread out along the valley floor, the resort is actually a large working town, easily accessible by road and rail, which retains a traditional charisma and a pretty car-free village centre in a beautiful local style. The locals’ sunny disposition must have at least a little to do with the resort’s sunny position, but it almost definitely has something to do with the heavy snowfalls that are commonplace on the high snow-sure slopes.

It is said that if you learn to ski in St Anton, “the cradle of alpine skiing,” you will be comfortable skiing anywhere. This is because, while there are a lot of nursery slopes along the village, some runs have a habit of proving to be harder than you first thought and busy pistes can get mogully. However, intermediate and advanced skiers couldn’t pick a more invigorating destination than St Anton ski resort. And if it all looks a bit familiar when you arrive, it could be because you’ve seen it all before in one of the many films made here. Think Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, Chalet Girl and one of the first-ever ski films, Die Weisse Rausch (The White Thrill), shot here in 1931 (you could even join the race based on the film every April).

3 Things We Love About St Anton

  1. One of Europe's top resorts for skiing- Perfect for expert skiers and boarders, with plenty of challenging runs and unlimited off-piste options.
  2. Party town - Famous for the incredible après scene, but with a very traditional and chic town.
  3. Large ski area - Lifts link with Lech and Zürs, make the Arlberg the largest ski area in Austria with 305km of piste.
