Industry leader, rich skiing history, welcoming hospitality
St Anton sits in the beautiful Tyrolean Alps and is known as the gateway to the Alberg ski region, Austria’s largest interconnected ski area. It links the ski areas of St. Anton, St. Christoph, Stuben, Lech, Zürs, Warth and Schröcken, consisting of more than 300km of marked slopes and 200km of off-piste trails. It is known for its 88 state-of-the-art cable cars and lifts that allow you to explore this expansive ski area with speed and comfort. The village of St Anton is both stunningly picturesque and traditionally alpine, and the personality and charm of the village can be felt from the moment you arrive.
Cradle of Alpine Skiing
St Anton is known as the cradle of skiing. Alpine skiing was ‘invented’ in the small Austrian village, with the formation of the Ski Club Alberg in 1901. But don’t let its long history leave you feeling that the resort is behind the times, it has in fact been at the forefront of innovation since 1901. Passion and excitement for skiing is an intrinsic part of the community and village. Stories of the local skiing legends are shared in bars, historic buildings sit alongside modern architecture and the local community are proud to share their heritage with visitors.
Leading the Ski industry towards sustainability
The resort's history and affinity to the mountains has led it to be a leader in sustainability. Sustainable practices have long been a part of life in St Anton, as the community strives to protect the natural environment for visitors and generations to come. The resort has run on renewable energy since 2006, with hydropower supporting much of their requirements. In addition to this, anyone who has visited Austria before will be aware of their comprehensive waste management process. Whether it is at home or at a mountain restaurant, recycling is a requirement, and as a result all of the mountain restaurants in St Anton have been awarded the Austrian environmental seal of approval.
Austrians are known for their warm and welcoming hospitality - they want to share the best of Austria with you. The mountain is dotted with restaurants serving traditional Austrian cuisine in cosy surroundings. In the village, there is an abundance of options from relaxed cafes and bars to fine dining restaurants and charming traditional options.
St Anton is renowned for its lively après ski, with the likes of the famous Mooserwirt and Krazy Kangaroo. These vibrant après bars sit on the side of the piste just above the village, with an electrifying atmosphere that is not to be missed.
