Whether you're new to skiing, or just new to Austrian ski resorts and booking a Ski Holiday in St. Anton, check out a few hints and tips to give you an idea of what to expect when you arrive.
St. Anton is easily accessible from three international airports, so you have the option of flying into Innsbruck, Zurich, or Friedrichshafen, and then transferring to St Anton in two hours or less. English is one of the languages spoken here, but learning some basic German will always help, especially with road signs and directions. Don't forget to stock up on Euro's before you leave too.
St. Anton is a popular and stylish ski resort, with accommodation options to suit all budgets. There are adult only and family friendly options, modern apartments, and traditional ski chalets. Look out for places that are close to the lift/gondola system, or centrally located for easy access to all the shops, restaurants, and apres ski.
St. Anton is located in the Arlberg high alpine ski area. Although the pistes can be challenging, and best suited to strong skiers and snowboarders, there are runs for less confident skiers as well, and a whole range of other winter sports and activities to enjoy.
St Anton widely has a reputation for having the most snow in Austria during winter, so you can be assured of good conditions for skiing from December until the end of the season in April. Lift passes, that cover the wider Alberg ski area, are available for a wide choice of pistes. Some highlights include:
Designed to give skiers of all ages, stability and confidence on the slopes. Elements include some steep turns, small jumps, bridge, twister and tunnels. Located between the Osthang and Zammermoosbahn cableways.
This is where you'll find a long testing piste which follows the world cup downhill route to the village.
This is an exciting, and well designed area for beginner and intermediate freestyle skiers to test their skills. Learn some tricks on the rails, boxes, kickers and jumps around the park which is ideally located for the Rendl-Terrace amenities.
Home to one of the longest intermediate runs in St Anton, you can enjoy a 10.2 km ski from Valluga via Ulmer Hütte to St. Anton.
