Why choose St Anton am Arlberg?
St Anton am Arlberg isn’t named ‘The Cradle of Alpine Skiing’ for no reason. The legendary ski area is one of the largest in Austria and, thanks to its altitude and far-reaching snow making facilities, offers snow-sure skiing that stretches well into spring.
With its level of world fame, you might expect St Anton to have lost its olde worlde charm. But that’s certainly not the case. Its village atmosphere is very much alive and kicking, with a well-deserved reputation for lively après-ski.
St Anton itself delivers everything you’d want in a world-class skiing destination, from sports shops and boutiques to established après-ski bars and restaurants. The resort’s cosmopolitan atmosphere and range of entertainment really sets it apart. Landeck and Imst are linked to St Anton by motorway. They offer a good range of facilities, amenities and shops.
Following the investment of a £37.5 million, the Arlberg resorts of St Anton, Stuben, Zürs, Lech, Warth and Schröcken has seen addition of four new 10-person gondolas making it the largest lift-linked ski area in Austria.
On the piste
While beginners build confidence and progress from the wide blue runs of the Galzig Mountain, intermediate skiers find what they’re looking for on the long, varied red runs from the Kapall and Gampen, which offer up breath-taking scenery and challenging pistes in equal measure. The advanced skiers among you won’t be disappointed, with chance to tackle the steep black runs and mogul fields from Mattun and Schindler Kar, while at 10 kilometres, the resort’s longest run begins at the top of the Valluga.
Snowboarders can make their way to the dedicated park on the Rendl Mountain – a great place to spend time for boarders of all abilities.
