About St Anton
St Anton am Arlberg, known by locals as the ‘cradle of Alpine skiing’, is undoubtedly one of the finest ski resorts in the Alps. When combined with the unrelenting après-ski, St Anton becomes a universal favourite. The accommodation on offer varies wildly. Our selection of the best places to stay in St Anton features a good range from uber luxury to something for the party crowd.
With over 440km of descent in the combined ski area (which includes Lech and Zurs, two sections ideal for intermediates, as well as St Christoph am Arlberg and the Stuben sector) it will take even the most fanatical of skiers to explore the whole resort in a week.
St Anton provides skiing for everyone - for the novice, St Anton’s exceptional ski school will quickly have them up to speed - for the experts there is tough skiing to be found at Velluga and you will find challenging skiing throughout the resort.
For the non skier
