I find it sort of amazing the amount of praise heaped on St. Anton. I basically found it to be a very bland and small town convincing itself it is something special, with some special prices. The mountain is average to above average but nothing outstanding. If you want exclusive, go to Zermatt or St.Moritz. If you really want to ride/ski go to Whistler or Vail or Jackson Hole. You want snow, go to Utah. The snow here is iffy especially in the lower half of the mountain. Considering it's reputation online, global warming must be killing this place. The runs are generally short with many narrow interconnecting paths. The lines at the lifts, even mid week, are fairly extensive. If you are comin

St Anton is a fantastic place to ski on all fronts. It's very friendly They understand the concept of queues The runs are varied and challenging - yet there are runs that are suitable for beginners (although the run down from Rendel can be very challenging for a beginner as it can get very crowded, has certain steep parts and can be icy at the end of the day) There are your usual collection of bars, some relaxing, some jazzy and lively and some absolutely mad (Krazy Kangaruh for example.) You must try the herbal drinks company on the main street(we called it World of Booze), a massive selection of wildy coloured drinks for your hip-flask. Just remember the limits on liquids in your hand bagg

Dit skigebied kan m.i. claimen te behoren tot de beste van de Alpen en in ieder geval zonder twijfel als het beste van Oostenrijk. In weinig andere gebieden vind je zo'n uitgelezen combinatie van uitmuntende ski-mogelijkheden, sfeer en sneeuwzekerheid. Alleen St.Anton is op zich zelf al de moeite waard om z'n off-piste mogelijkheden, uitdagende pistes en mondain-sportieve sfeer. Lech vult dit aan met een prachtig gelegen, romantisch dorp, perfecte sneeuw en uitgelezen restaurants. St.Christoph, Zurs en Stuben zijn stuk voor stuk unieke, kleine skidorpen. Niet zo uitgebreid als de Franse resorts, maar nog steeds zeer uitdagend voor de beste skier, en veeel meer sfeer. Minder perfect aaneenges

Have skied in St Anton for many years and my daughter learnt to ski with the Arlberg school. She started at aged 5, and can now (4 years later) easily ski most runs in the area. Last January she did the Schindler run down to Stuben confidently. I cannot praise the kids ski school enough, in my opinion it's heaps better than France or Switzerland. Despite the fact the resort is not easy, don't let this put you off. Go to ski school, whatever your age and you will have a great time, they have some fab off piste classes. Oh and the apres ski is pretty good too!

Ik ben echt een die hard St. Anton liefhebber, dit zeer uitdagende ski gebied kan ik niet vergelijken met enig ander, waar ze ergens anders een piste zwart noemen, noemen de St. antonners diezelfde piste rood, want daar heb je de meest uitdagende afdalingen, niet alleen op de piste, maar ook ernaast. Zodra je vergevorderd bent en een beetje avontuurlijk, dan is St. Anton echt wat voor jou! Een tip: zorg dat je een beetje rondvraagt waar de beste pistes zich bevinden, want de beste zijn goed verstopt Ben je een beginner, dan is het een ander verhaal, dan zal je niet genieten van de prachtige zwarte pistes. maar daar hebben ze wel wat op gevonden, namelijk, de naar mijn mening beste skischool
