Ski holidays in St Anton

Challenging skiing (but easy slopes too!) across 304km of interconnected pistes - plus legendary après-ski

Mighty St Anton is one of the best high-alpine ski resorts in the world and has the reputation of being best suited to strong skiers and boarders. But that certainly shouldn’t put less confident skiers off – there’s plenty for them too. However, it can’t be denied that  St. Anton is renowned for its challenging skiing, which goes hand-in-hand with spectacular scenery and lively après-ski. The long, exhilarating descents from the Valluga, scenic valley runs and world-class off-piste skiing attract keen skiers year after year who relish the bragging rights back home. Also included in the Arlberg lift pass are the exclusive resorts of Lech, Zürs, Stuben and St. Christoph. The attractive pedestrianised village centre gives easy access to the main lifts and St. Anton’s infamous après-ski starts on the slopes at bars such as the ‘Mooserwirt’ and the ‘Krazy Kanguruh’, and continues into the small hours down in the village.

With the new Flexenbahn link opening in the last few years, all resorts in the Arlberg ski area - St. Anton, St. Christoph, Stuben, Zürs, Lech, Oberlech, as well as Ströcken and Warth are easily and comfortably accessible on skis without he need of a bus making this the one of largest interconnected ski areas in Austria.

Ski and Snowboard Information
Skiing levels
Cross country

Beginners: St. Anton has a very experienced, professional ski school and the nursery slopes are conveniently placed in Nasserein, 5 minutes from the centre.

Intermediates: The choice of blue and red runs is plentiful on the Galzig and Gampen and better skiers will enjoy the demanding descents from the Valluga. For a quiet and easy start to the holiday try the Rendl. A ski safari over to St. Christoph and Stuben is a must, as is a day out skiing the “White Ring” in Lech and Zürs (now interlinked by the new cableway at Zürs/Stuben).

Advanced: A dare-devil skier’s paradise with many steep, challenging black runs in rugged terrain plus deep, off-piste powder skiing. Try your skills on the Kandahar downhill course from Kapall to the village or on the moguls on the ski routes that drop down on the other side of Kapall.

Snowboarding: Snowboarders will enjoy the many wide open pistes and the snowboard park on the Rendl.
