St. Anton ski & snowboard holidays take you to an alpine resort that is considered one of the best in Europe. It is a charming town with picture postcard looks. When illuminated at night it really is the epitome of a winter wonderland. St. Anton offers world class skiing with its two hundred and seventy kilometres of pistes, superb powder fields, a vibrant apres ski scene and a host of additional activities. Located in the heart of the Aarlberg Ski Circus, St. Anton accommodates all levels of ability in both skiing and boarding. The vast area is covered by one lift pass and there is a bus service linking the resort to Lech, Zurs and Sonnenkopf. The village lies at an altitude of thirteen hundred metres with the highest lift at twenty-eight hundred metres. Sixty-five percent of the pistes have snow making facilities. There is a snow park for boarders and cross country skiers have forty kilometres of trails.
St. Anton caters for all. Novices will find the nursery slopes conveniently placed just above the village towards Nasserein. The resort ski schools have an excellent reputation and will soon have beginners on the easy greens and blues. Intermediates have a huge choice of blues and reds, sufficient to keep them happy for a fortnight. Advanced skiers couldn't wish for better terrain. Whether on or off piste, they'll find demanding black runs, moguls and narrow gullies. All will test their skill and then of course there are the superb off-piste trails. Be sure to take an experienced mountain guide if you go off-piste.
The St Anton ski season opens in the third week of December and closes in the beginning of April. The resort has snow making facilities on sixty-five percent of its pistes and at thirteen hundred metres it has a good snow record throughout the season.
