Ski Area Overview

Set in the Arlberg region of Tyrol with over 340km of piste is the world-class resort, St. Anton. Offering some of the best skiing in the world, the ski area has more than enough for strong skiers and snowboarders. St. Anton is renowned for its challenging skiing and its world-class off-piste attracts keen skier’s year after year. 

Confident intermediates and advanced skiers will be spoilt for choice here with powder bowls, steep descents and long runs. Off-piste opportunities are endless due to the vast terrain in Arlberg. As well as being a paradise for experienced skiers, it also has spectacular scenery and legendary après ski.

There is a bus service that links St Anton to Lech, Zurs and Sonnenkopf which provides over 270km of runs on just one lift pass. New for winter 2016/17 is the Flexenbahn link which connects all resorts in the Arlberg ski area meaning St. Anton, St. Christoph, Stuben, Zurs, Lech, Oberlech, Strocken and Warth will be easily accessible on skis without the need of a bus, making it the largest interconnected ski area in Austria. 

Take a look below at our breakdown to find out more information relevant to your ability:


St. Anton is a haven for advanced skiers with many steep, challenging black runs and endless amounts of off-piste powder skiing. The high runs leading from the Valluga are particularly favoured by fearless skiers as are the Mattun, Schindlerkar and Stuben runs.


Intermediates will find a superb range of blue and red runs on the Galzig and Gampen areas. Confident intermediates will definitely enjoy the steep descents from the Valluge whilst early intermediates should check out the cruisy runs located close to the village. 


There are a handful of beginner slopes just above the village towards Nasserein which are ideal for building confidence and finding your ski legs. There are relatively easy blues close

to the lift station at Rendl Beach however the runs higher up towards St. Anton can be tough for beginners when snow conditions are icy.


The varied and challenging terrain at St. Anton makes it a magnet for experienced snowboarders. Boards and freestylers should check out the terrain park by Rendl which includes a half pipe and quarter pipes. Rendl is generally good for beginner and intermediate boarders due to the wide, open slopes and groomed runs. For advanced boarders, there is plenty of excellent boarding at Stuben and Lech-Zurs.


St. Anton is famous for its off-piste skiing. With enormous amounts of terrain, high altitude routes and hidden valleys it’s one of the best places in the Alps if you wish to explore the mountain. The tiny Valluga 2 ski lift gets you to the regions highest point at 2811m which opens up some extreme terrain, not accessible to skiers unless accompanied by a qualified guide.

* Ski Weekends strongly advise that off piste skiing should only be undertaken when in the company of a professional ski instructor or guide.
