St. Anton is one of the most popular ski resorts in the Europe. Although it is not like a typical Austrian Village it still has the charm and authenticity that characterises with the Austrian Alps.
Village & Night Life:
The main street is full of shops and there are plenty of restaurants as well. St Anton also offers many opportunities for the nightlife fans as well. From ambitious clubs to karaoke bars there are many options. And all seems to be filled with young and energetic crowd. It’s for sure Brits bring dynamism to the nightlife of St. Anton.
One of the strengths of the location is the après ski. Après ski is an event that I really enjoy in the European Alps. Instead of leaving your skis and jumping to bed after a long skiing activity, you shift to a different mood and celebrate the evening with music, alcohol and dance. Preferably with the 80’s German Pop Genre.
The Ski Area & Infrastructure:
The infrastructure including the lifts and restaurants is higher than the standards offered by many other resorts. Majority of the lifts are up to very high standards. There are many ski runs suitable for everyone’s taste. However in some reviews it’s been claimed that the area is a bit less suitable for beginners. The area on the north side of the St Anton offers good off-piste opportunities and there are also couple of bumps and play areas for snowboarders. This section of the valley is also perfect for the ones who prefer extremely wide pistes. The skiing complex of St Anton is very versatile. The good thing is If you are not satisfied with what you get or curious in getting the full value from your ski pass you can also visit Lech. Lech is another resort located few km west of the St Anton and is also covered by the ski pass you get from St. Anton. (depends on the ski pass package)
