Sarah - Director"St Anton is the party town for experienced skiers (I'm sure the phrase 'sleep is overrated' was coined after a visit to St Anton!). St Anton boasts a great ski area; with the linked Arlberg ski area now offering a whopping 305km of ski runs! My top tip would be to stay close to the Nasserein lift as the queues are smaller and you can get onto the mountain quicker. "

'St Anton ski holidays' is one of the most searched for phrases on the SkiWeekends site, and for good reason. A famous ski resort, short transfer from Innsbruck (by train or by car), great off piste skiing, even better apres, and a huge ski area in the Arlberg Ski Circus make St. Anton an incredibly popular choice for a short break.

St Anton's apres ski scene is the stuff of legends. Numerous bars (including the famed Krazy Kanguruh and Mooserwirt) take care of your on-mountain apres ski needs, whilst the vibrant town centre offers an extensive variety of eateries and watering holes to accommodate even the most dedicated of revellers.

Happily, Austria's most lively ski resort is also one of its prettiest. With over 70 cafés and restaurants in St. Anton, ranging from small snacks to traditional dishes and American style food, there is something to suit all tastes. Spread out along the bottom of a narrow valley on the edge of the Rosanna river, its car-free town centre is characterised by traditional buildings which ooze Alpine charm, and its proximity to Innsbruck means hassle-free airport transfers. 

Our top hotel pick for a ski holiday in St. Anton? The Hotel Mooserkreuz, Hotel Banyan or the Hotel Lux Alpinae.


Located in the Tyrol region in the westernmost reaches of Austria, St Anton is a true heavyweight of world skiing. Famed for its challenging off-piste and terrain, it's a Mecca for experienced skiers and powderhounds, though there are great beginner slopes at Nasserein and Gampen and abundant red runs to ensure intermediates will also find themselves at home. With deep-snow ski runs, snowboard fun parks, carving areas, permanent racing circuits and numerous cosy meeting places, St Anton ensures variety and enjoyment for all. 

Arlberg has always been famous for its beauty, reliable snow extending right down to the villages and the excellent condition of its slopes. As part of the Arlberg ski area, your lift pass also covers Lech and Zürs, meaning on a typical St Anton ski holiday you'll have over 160 miles of groomed runs to explore and a network of 88 lifts to help you along the way.
