The Kapallbahn Chairlift also takes beginners and intermediates up to 2,330 meters for an enjoyable, fun and long run back down to resort. Progressive beginners can take the Gampenbahn Chair to the Gampen ski area for immediate access to a great variety of more gentle slopes.

Ski Weekend St Anton - St Anton Resort Guide

undefined

St Anton has always been a great skiing resort, not to mention home to the best après-ski in the Alps. The combination of fabulous and varied skiing, an enviable snow record, hearty Austrian and Tyrolean food and service combined with good value for money make it one of our favourite resorts.

For anyone for whom skiing is not an obsession, you could happily spend most of your holiday at Well.com – St Anton’s superb Wellness centre before joining the skiers at the Mooserwirt or the Krazy Kanguruh for après ski. That said, there is plenty more to do, including walking, rock climbing and a visit to the museum of skiing.


 

St anton village

undefinedSt Anton is a charismatic village full of Alpine charm. There are no ugly apartment blocks here and the surrounding scenery is nothing short of spectacular. The village itself is full of atmosphere and is big enough to keep you occupied if skiing is not the be all and end all. It gets plenty of sun and at the bottom of the ski lifts, there are plenty of sun soaked terraces where you can enjoy a coffee or a gluhwein while observing the antics on the slopes.

There are plenty of great restaurants and bars and because the village centre is largely pedestrianised it is a great place to go for a wander round the shops. If you are more used to skiing in France and Switzerland’s premier resorts, St Anton hits you like a breath of fresh air. The locals are friendly and seem genuinely pleased to see you and the restaurants and bars offer good value cuisine. 

While plenty of resorts may claim to be the home of Alpine skiing, there is little doubt that St Anton is the home of après-ski. The home nation lead the way with dancing in ski boots, copious helpings of Schnapps, pitchers of beer and a great line in Eighties music. If St Anton is the Mecca of après-ski, the Mooserwirt is the sacred shrine and you will not want to miss this. Bathed in sun on the side of the last run home, you will hear it before you see it. It is also accessible by car so you won’t miss out if you are a non-skier or if the short ski home looks a little daunting. Once you have experienced the Mooserwirt, don’t forget to mix it up though as St Anton has plenty more to offer.

There is almost no ski in/ski out accommodation in St Anton but there is a great setup in resort, which gets around this problem. The local, frequent and convenient free ski shuttle will drop you down to the ski shop, which has a spacious “check in” area where you leave your skis and ski boots, right at the base of the ski lift.

There are a multitude of other villages in the Arlberg ski area, which can be visited on skis or by train or bus. Lech is the Arlberg’s glitzy answer to Courchevel or St Moritz and is a great place to go for lunch. Sonnenkopf, Stuben, Zurs and the wonderfully named Zug are small villages, which offer a really authentic Alpine experience away from the crowds.


 

Some of our favourites 

undefinedFor non skiers (and weary skiers!), the St Anton Wellness centre, the Well.com, is fantastic. It boasts an indoor swimming pool, paddling pool, outdoor pool, indoor and outdoor tennis, an ice rink, a superbly equipped gym as well as saunas, steam and massage rooms and tanning facilities. 

Eating out and drinking in St Anton is great value compared to many other premier Alpine resorts and the Austrian service and hospitality is very warm. Do not miss out on St Anton’s legendary après-ski! 

We highly recommend the Museum, where the film “Chalet Girl” was set for supper one evening. Great food and wine in a stunning setting. 

The wine and champagne tasting at Hospiz Alm in their cellar is fantastic and the slide down to the basement avoids the precarious walk down the stairs in ski boots. 

The restaurant on the right as you go up the Nasserein bubble serves the most sublime ham hock. Our top tip is to share one between two (or even three!). 

Be sure to try the local Goulash soup, which is served in probably every restaurant. It is the perfect rich, hearty remedy to warm you up and rejuvenate your legs after a cold morning’s skiing.
