The chalet was only built in 2012 so it has a more contemporary feel, but there's still plenty of the homely comforts you would expect from a ski chalet. Sleeping just six people, makes it a cosy place to be anyway, but the deep comfy sofa and addition of a small sauna make it a lovely place to relax with friends or family.
Your Neilson host will make sure you have everything you need as well as let you in on some resort secrets too. The lively end of St Anton is a ten to fifteen minute walk down the hill. You'll also find the nearest lift and piste there too. The ski bus stops right outside the chalet if you don't fancy a walk, and to make things a bit easier, hire equipment through Neilson so you can leave it at the rental shop which is close to the Rendlbahn gondola.

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.
The three Austrian twin bedrooms are a nice size and have plenty of space and light. Like the rest of the chalet, they have a modern feel. All bedrooms are ensuite with a shower, wc and luxurious Temple Spa toiletries.
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.
