St Anton

St Anton is known as one of the best ski areas in the world with a legendary après-ski scene to boot. Steeped in history, it's often referred to as the 'cradle of skiing' after playing its part in inventing the sport


As part of the mighty 340km Arlberg region, (which includes Lech, Zürs and St Christoph) intermediate and advanced skiers will be able to really push themselves on the 134 pistes, and then reward themselves after a big day on the mountain.

St Anton village itself has heaps of charm, and the famous après-ski bars on the slopes above the village rock from 3pm. The stunning scenery and charming village just adds to the glamour of this special resort. 


We only have a couple of hotels here, but they're good ones. Both are traditionally Austrian and family-run for an authentic Austrian skiing holiday.

On the mountain

St Anton is one of the best ski areas in the world. It has over 300kms of marked runs, some huge off-piste areas and awe-inspiring scenery. With four mountains to explore and loads of steep drops, it’s a great addition to the mighty Arlberg region. 


A new lift links Lech, Zürs and St Christoph so intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders now have the perfect playground!

Off the mountain

The village of St Anton has loads of charm and boasts a real Tirolean feel with onion-domed churches, loads of shopping and no cars in the centre. It's quite a large resort that’s spread out. Its choice of bars, shops and restaurants are exceptional.


The more rowdy bars that the area is famous for are dotted around the slopes above the village. If you’d like something more on the quieter side of things, there’s plenty of cosy restaurants and bars for you too.
