Resort Guide

The ski resort of Sankt Anton am Arlberg or St Anton as it is commonly known, vies with Val d’Isere for the title of the ski resort with the most under classified slopes; a lot of the blue slopes in resort would be better classified as reds, however, the black runs are classified how they should be in terms of steepness and difficulty. The touring runs at Rendl and Stuben are pistes better tackled with a guide unless an expert skier as these would technically be off piste in most resorts. 

The main sector is the Valluga area which is accessed via the cable car to Galzig followed by a chairlift. The very top of this section is a great sightseeing spot but the ski down is off-piste to Zurs and should only be attempted with an experienced guide. Valluga Grat is the slightly lower area linked to The Valluga and is the access point to St Anton’s famous bowls and the Alpe Rauz run (accessed by the Schindlergrat triple chair). Using the Valfagehr you can also explore the slopes of Stuben from this section. Other runs from Galzig go south-west to St Christoph and east into the Steissbachtal.

The Kapall-Gampen sector is the second main area of the resort. Mid-mountain from Gampen, the pistes run back to St Anton. Moving higher up the sector gives access to Kappall where you can ski the treeless upper mountain.

The third and final sector is the Rendl area accessed by the new gondola to give people a chance to ski the west-facing runs above the gondola and the north-facing piste to the valley which was once neglected due to lack of accessibility.

For beginners
For beginners there is a nursery slope area at Nasserein. There are also shorter runs closer to the main lift areas that are used to teach on and a small area up at Gampen suitable for those new to the sport.

Snow parks
The ‘Stanton Park’ is the main snow park in the resort. It’s located up on the Rendl side of the resort and can be accessed by the Rendl lift. The park area is divided into three main sectors offering up challenges to all ability levels; the Proline is famed for its huge kickers, rails and boxes which can keep even the most advanced park skier or snowboarder entertained; the Kickerline is home to jumps of between 7-11m; and the Jibline is where you can kick back and relax on the different rails and boxes – a perfect place for beginners honing their skills.

Off Piste
St. Anton is renowned for its off-piste with over 180km of marked off-piste runs to enjoy. The Galzig ski area offers excellent off-piste ski terrain, but it does get cut up quickly on a powder day as most visitors head for this area first. At the top of the Galzig cable car down the Zeischen is a great, challenging run through the trees that drops down to the Feldherrnhugel lift. This is especially favoured on a flat light day. On the opposite side of the valley to the Galzig, the Rendl ski area also provides some excellent runs to brush up your off piste technique. It’s an off-piste guide’s paradise as it covers variable terrain and predictable snow conditions. It is imperative that you take all the safety precautions you can, shovels and probes and beepers can be purchased or hired. Speak to lift operators prior to going off piste as they will have a better idea of what is safe and what isn’t. To be extra safe professional guides can be hired who have all the local knowledge to take you to the best spots without sacrificing safety.

Cross Country Skiing
For those wanting to try a different type of skiing around the mountain, St. Anton offers 40km of Cross Country skiing trails with routes ranging in level of difficulty to suit all abilities of skiers. You will find ‘walking, Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing maps’ at the Tourist Office, alternatively lessons and guided excursions are available from the various ski schools, ask a member of staff for details.

Skis, board and boots - another vital part to a fantastic ski holiday. Through us you can pre-book skis, boots and snowboards for all abilities, from complete beginner to the most advanced level of skier or rider. And we haven't forgotten our young skiers, with ski equipment specifically designed to help them progress. Our range includes skis for tiny tots as young as 3 years, through to children up to 12 year olds.

Our suppliers have been chosen for their expertise and friendliness, and to ensure you get the very best quality equipment in resort.

Walking and snow shoeing

Snow-shoeing is a great way to see the mountains.

It is possible to hire snowshoes and explore the local area, although for safety’s sake we would suggest that you take a guide. All the ski schools organise regular guided tours. Ask for the “walking, Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing map” at the Tourist Office or ask your chalet host for more details.

We understand that for many guests an important part of their ski holiday is enjoying an après ski beer or dancing the night away into the early hours. We’ve listed below just a few of our favourite bars in St Anton. Don’t forget to ask your Chalet Host for advice on which venues are the best, they will after all, probably have frequented most of them!

Krazy Kangaruh - One of the oldest après ski bars on the mountains (and often the loudest). The bar is linked to the Taps restaurant and can be reached by coming down red run No 21 from Gampen or down blue run No1 that starts just below the Zammermoos chairlift.

Mooserwirt - One of the most famous après ski bars in Europe and worth experiencing at least once on your holiday to St. Anton. The Mooserwirt is situated off Blue run No 1 and it is the last après ski bar on the mountain.

Heustadl - The first après bar you come across on your way down the Blue run No 1 from the Zammermoos chairlift.

Taps - A good place to start après if you want somewhere slightly more relaxing than the Krazy Kangaruh next door. A firm favourite with seasonnaires who want to relax on their way down the mountain.

Post Keller/Picadilly’s - This is one of the only après ski bars actually situated in the village (with most situated on the slopes). Open from 4pm daily, this pub-style bar provides live music to entertain the crowds coming off the slopes until the early hours. You can find this night spot on the main high street (Dorfstrasse) coming from the Tourist Office just before Kandahar bar and restaurant.

Gampen - The Gampen bar has live music every Tuesday and Thursday to coincide with the evening tobogganing.

Scotty’s - A favourite meeting place for the seasonnaires in resort. Scotty’s offers a wide range of cocktails with happy hour every day. You'll find it just off the main street, in the Hotel Rosanna.

The Underground on the Piste - The Underground on the Piste is more sedate and a good place to chill out and relax away from the crowd. There's live music most days after skiing and it's also a popular place for dinner or for after dinner drinks in an uncrowded private house party setting. Located at the bottom of the home run.

Bobo's - Bobo's is many things really, a restaurant, an apres ski bar, a late night bar and a nightclub. The restaurant serves  Mexican food. Often has Karaoke nights

Kandahar - Traditionally known for its night life, Kandahar also offers a great alternative for those seeking Asian Cuisine. Kandahar offers a wide range of Thai and Indian dishes all served in Eastern style setting.

Basecamp - Located the the bottom of the Gampen chairlift, Basecamp is a lively bar which you can ski right up to at the end of the day. When it's sunny the retractable roof comes off, so get there early for a table in the sunshine!

Once you’re on the slopes, you probably won’t feel like going back to your chalet to have lunch! There are a variety of restaurants to choose from for lunch, either on the mountain or in the village.

Many of the lunch time restaurants also offer dinner in the evening. As your chalet host will have one night off in the week, this provides the perfect opportunity for you to sample the local cuisine.

In busy periods don’t forget to ask your Chalet Host to make a reservation to ensure that you get the restaurant of your choice. Below we’ve listed a few of the many restaurants in St Anton.

Mountain Restaurants;

The Verwallstube (Galzig)  - Exquisite gourmet cuisine at 2,085 metres.  Absolutely amazing views but a rather expensive treat to dine here.

Hospiz Alm (St Christoph)  - The Hospiz Alm Chalet is where rural tradition and luxury meet. Experience the highest level of culinary indulgence at this gourmet restaurant in St. Christoph. You will find the Hospiz Alm Chalet poking out of the deep snow right in the middle of the piste, surrounded by majestic mountains. Delicious food, cool champagne or an excellent 40 year old Burgundy or Bordeaux.  This place is atmospheric and well known for its service and extensive wine cellar.

Ulmer Hütte (Galzig) - Known for both its good service and food with almost panoramic views across the pistes. Children and beginners need to be good, strong skiers to get there though.

Rendl restaurant - Recently refurbished offering a spacious dining area for busy times this is a self-service restaurant.

Gampen restaurant - Directly located at the Gampenbahn top station and underneath the Nassereinbahn top station the Gampen restaurant lies embedded as a castle. At Gampen you'll get a huge choice of meals and drinks for hungry skiers! Tyrolean traditional fair, a relaxing drink at the Gampen-Bar or sunbath on the terrace - pleasure has absolute priority here.

Trittkopf BBQ station - Located at the top of the Trittkopf 2, an old converted lift station has become the highest BBQ restaurant in the Austrian alps. Enjoy smoked meats, sweet treats, craft and local beers all accompanies by fabulous scenery.

Krazy Kangaruh - Before the apres ski kicks off, KK's offers fantastic food at great value prices. Try their popular KK's burger or enjoy traditional dishes such as goulash and tiroler gröstl.

Village Restaurants;

Museum Restaurant - Open daily offering a traditional & international menu with an extensive wine list. The museum restaurant is St. Anton’s version of St Christoph’s Hospiz Alm and has been described as the most special and accessible restaurant in St. Anton. The restaurant is a short walk from the centre and is known for its amazing food and atmosphere.

Maximilian - Reasonably priced restaurant that specializes in Tyrolean cuisine and steak situated a 5 minute walk away from the village centre on the Dorfstrasse (high street).

Arlberger Dorfstubn - A traditional little Tyrolean restaurant located in the heart of the village above Bobo’s. Everything from the interior to the menu to the waitresses’ uniform is traditional so it’s a great place to get a feel of the Austrian mountain charm.

Hotel Schwarzer Adler A la Carte Restaurant - The a la carte Restaurant at Hotel Schwarzer Adler is a 400 year old, original Tyrolean snug and offers refined, sophisticated speciality dishes from locally sourced produce. You will be well looked after by the staff here and their qualified sommelière. If you’re looking for something a little less extravagant they also run Restaurant Aquila, situated right opposite Hotel Schwarzer Adler. This is a very popular, more informal restaurant but still enjoys a great atmosphere and the customary high quality.

Hacienda - Since 1985 Hazienda has been a cornerstone in St. Anton for both tourists and locals alike. Over the years some things have changed but the feeling of a classic ski town bar/restaurant atmosphere remains the same. The dining room resonates with lively ambiance enhanced with warm furnishings and original works of art. Intimate nooks with vaulted ceilings inspire serenity. With its understated elegance, Hazienda is a rarefied experience in rustic sophistication and culinary excellence. You will find the restaurant at the M3 Hotel half way down the main street.

Pommadoro - Pommadoro is the main Italian restaurant in resort famed for its authentic stone baked pizzas. It has a loud and lively atmosphere but if you prefer a quiet night in then a take away service is available.
