St Anton truly is world-class and definitely one of the best ski areas in the world. It's sometimes known as the 'cradle of skiing' after it played its part in inventing the sport. And with over 300km of perfectly pisted runs (linking into Lech, Zürs, Stuben and St Christoph) and a seriously good lift system, it's easy to see the appeal!
Off the slopes, St Anton's reputation is just as strong. The après-ski scene is pretty legendary in its own right. Bars like the Mooserwirt draw huge crowds and bring the resort to life after the slopes close. The village of St Anton is very charming with a traditional Tirolean feel and onion-domed churches, loads of shopping and no cars in the centre.
