WEsayA lively town with some of the most challenging skiing and nightlife in Europe. Huge investment in the lift system has massively improved links with the wider Arlberg valley. A personal favourite for the director of Chaletline!
When it comes to picking the top winter sports spots in Europe, this premier resort is on many people’s shortlist for a ski break in a catered chalet. St Anton is situated in the famous Arlberg mountain range, and there is a great après-ski scene that continues until the early hours of the morning.
Over the last few years, a number of new gondolas and chairlifts have been installed in the area, and these are all accessible from any of our catered ski chalets.
St Anton also offers many options for visitors who want to take a break from the slopes and chill out. Why not visit the local wellness centre where you can enjoy a soak in the whirlpool before topping up your tan in the solarium?
Experienced snowboarders and skiers will relish the opportunity to tackle some of the black runs in this area, with some great forest sections close to the resort’s catered ski chalets. St Anton, however, is equally good for those who are looking for opportunities at an intermediate level.
Whether you are looking for a cheap resort package, a hotel or a catered chalet, St Anton is a perfect place in which to relax after an adrenaline-fuelled day out. The more difficult off-piste runs are not for the faint-hearted but they can be rewarding for people who are prepared to accept the risks they present and use their skills to negotiate them.
St Christoph, Lech, Zurs and Stuben can all be found in the Arlberg area and together they ensure that visitors are never bored. These resorts offer a huge variety of options, and you can try something different every day of your holiday.
Although there are nursery slopes and great schools in this region, this resort is perhaps not the first-choice destination for complete beginners. However, if you are reasonably confident in your abilities and ready to stretch yourself then this could be the ideal place for you.

New for 2016/17
St Anton is being connected to Lech-Zurs to form Austria's largest ski area. A brand new 10-person Flexenbahn gondola from Rauz, near Stuben, goes over a ridge to the mid-station of the new Trittkopf gondola above Zurs, from which point there s a piste down to Zurs. You ride the Flexenbahn back there is no piste down to Rauz. Also from Rauz, a new 10-person gondola takes you to almost the top of the Stuben ski area cutting out the need to use two successive slow, cold, double chair lifts from Stuben. The lower of these chairs will remain in place for access to the slopes from Stuben, running up to the mid-station of the new gondola.
