St Anton Ski Guide – Skiing in St Anton
Known as one of Europe’s snowiest areas boasting 305km of slopes, 200 km of ski routes which are kind of inspected and marked off-piste areas, St Anton gets about 7 meter of snow each season giving free riders one of the best places in Europe.
St Anton is maybe not for the beginners: it won’t take much time to notice for advanced skiers and snow boarders getting ready for the slopes at the start of the day. For its snow-sure destination, the Arlberg ski area won’t disappoint those who wish to spend adequate time in slopes and the modern network of lifts. Shared with St Anton are neighbouring ski areas of Lech/Zürs and Warth/Schröcken.
St Anton, aka the cradle of the alps, a.k.a weltdorf, was considered one of the best ski resorts in the world. This is even before they built Flexhenbhan lift in 2016, which connects it to Zurs, making the Arlberg ski area 305 km of linked ski runs, the largest in Austria.
