St. Anton


St Anton, in the Arlberg region of Austria, is one of the most famous ski resorts in the world. Known for its lively après-ski, it also offers some of the most challenging intermediate and advanced ski runs in the Alps.

The resort is one of the oldest and most historically important ski resorts not only in Austria, but also in the world. One of the first cable cars in the Alps was installed on Galzig Mountain; and pioneering ski instructor and sponsor of the Kandahar Trophy ski races, Hannes Schneider, founded Skischule Arlberg (the Arlberg Ski School) in 1921, introducing the concept of group ski lessons that were later adopted by schools ski resorts around the world. St Anton can be considered the birthplace of modern alpine skiing.

The Hopplweg is great fun for snow bunnies, on the children's ski slope from Gampen to Nasserein they will not only meet Hoppl the funny rabbit, but also many other forest animals. The natural toboggan run is a real highlight for families. Along four kilometers, children and adults can enjoy a quick ride through the valley.


Après-ski and nightlife are St Anton's other big draws, and popular spots on the resort's slopes - Krazy Kanguruh and Mooserwirt are the most notorious - bustle from early afternoon until well after from the closure of the cable cars, with DJs and live acts that liven up the action.
