St Anton am Arlberg Ski Resort
Welcome to the largest connected ski area in Austria, a big-league resort of spectacular beauty. Views here seem to go on forever. St Anton is enormously popular with visitors from all over the world for multiple reasons – its size, snow, atmosphere on and off the slopes and spirited apres ski nightlife – not to mention the fact that its ski pass the Arlberg Card covers not only St Anton but also the ski areas of St. Christoph, Stuben, Lech and Zurs, which are all connected by a lift and bus system. Combined they offer a network of 88 cable cars and ski lifts accessing 190 miles (305 km) of groomed slopes and another 120 miles (200 km) of off-piste runs waiting to be explored. There is no denying St Anton presents great value for money.
St Anton is easily accessible from major cities such as Munich and Zurich. Step off the plane, onto a train and within a few hours you’re gazing at the Arlberg. Here there is a plethora of lodging choices from apartments, large and small hotels and chalets to the kind of homely pensions found in ski resorts all over Europe. The centre is largely car free, while the town itself offers a blend of authentic traditional charm and modernity.
There is plenty of skiing here to suit the advanced and strong intermediate skier plus miles of marked on-piste runs catering for intermediates. A must is a ride up the Vallugabahn to the 9222 foot (2811 meter) Valluga, where at the very summit sits a viewing platform with 360 degree views of the European Alps stretching into 5 countries. The Arlberg’s lifting system is very efficient and it is easy to find places on the slopes to eat and drink when hunger pangs strike.
Almost as well-known as St Anton itself are its two lively apres ski venues the Krazy Kanguruh and the Mooserwirt. Located at the run out of the main slopes, they are impossible to miss, the sounds of afternoon revellers audible well before you reach them.
