We're delighted to have Chalet Gertrud Gabl (and its smaller sister, the four person Mini Gabl) in the Mountain Collection family and also such an illustrious resort too. The chalet itself has a pretty illustrious history as it was built by the family of Gertrud Gabl, a legendary local skier who won the Alpine World Cup in 1969!
It's a very warm and welcoming place to stay. The finish is traditionally alpine with a modern edge (as you may expect) with chunky furniture and lots of comforting soft furnishings.
There are eight comfortable bedrooms, all with comfy Austrian twin beds and ensuite facilities, but if that's not quite enough room, you can also book the four person Neilson Chalet Mini Gabl next door. Being in the quiet Stadl area of the resort, away from St Anton's lively centre not only provides a restful night's sleep, but also some far-reaching views over Rendl mountain from every room.
It's a ten to fifteen minute walk down the hill to the nearest lift and resort centre, or you can take the ski bus which runs regularly from a stop about a one-minute walk away. To make life easier, if you hire equipment through Neilson, you can leave it at the rental shop which is close to the Galzigbahn lift. For kit not hired through Neilson, you can still use the lockers, but there will be a small charge.

St Anton is known for world-class terrain and a legendary après-ski scene. This is the place for intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders to really push themselves and then reward themselves after a big day on the mountain with a stein of beer or a (very) warming shnapps.
It has over 300kms of marked runs and a further 200km freeride area with some huge off-piste challenges. Absolutely stunning scenery adds to the glamour of this amazing resort and with four mountains to explore and loads of steep drops, it’s a great addition to the mighty Arlberg region.
Additions to the lift system means that the entire Arlberg region is connected. Finally, Lech, Zürs, St Cristoph and St Anton are now accessible without having to hop on a bus! Just what the piste hungry were wanting!

Our chalet board basis is designed for skiers and boarders. Start every morning with an extensive continental breakfast, and cooked options on most days. Your daily afternoon tea of freshly baked cakes and biscuits will be waiting for you when you come in from the slopes.
Evening meals are a three-course set-menu with regionally inspired dishes and free-flowing wine throughout the week, all followed by fresh coffee. We provide evening meals on six nights a week leaving you free to head out and explore the resort on one evening.
Each of the eight Austrian twin bedrooms are a really good size with plenty of light and a modern alpine feel. All are ensuite with a shower and wc, but four rooms also have a bath to soak tired legs in at the end of the day. You'll also find luxurious Temple Spa toiletries in each bathroom.
Don’t forget that you get free guiding and coaching throughout the week from fully qualified ski and board instructors with our Mountain Expert service.
Designed for confident blue and red-run skiers and snowboarders, they'll show you around the mountain on free guiding sessions, and even offer free coaching sessions to help you become a more confident skier or snowboarder.
There are at least three sessions a week and we guarantee each guest at least two sessions a week. Your hosts will explain how it works when you get there.
