This is not the resort to go to if you want parks and pipe. For a resort with such a big name. It should be ashamed by what it offers to snowboarders. I was shocked to find that dose not really make any real effort to provide decent freestyle facilites St anton say it has a park on it's website, the reality was one kicker and one box. Could easily do so much better. Great freeriding, challanging pistes, great nightlife, pretty town, groming not that good, big ski area more intrested in skiers.

All in all St. Anton is one of the best ski resorts we have so far visited. The large beginners area and the excellent local ski schools will enthuse families and beginners. Snowboarders get their moneys worth due to excellent freeride opportunities, the modern ski lift facilities and the funpark. The advanced or intermediate skier will definitely never get bored as they are provided with a dazzling array of trails. And experts too will be thrilled by one of the most snow guaranteed spots in Austria let alone a great quantity of ungroomed terrain. And for those who still dispose of time and strength after the challenging powder trails will find finest Après Ski late into the morning

I've skied St. Anton ten times now and am considering a different resort. However, nothing that I research seems to compare! The skiing is supberb! The area is vast and the off-piste enough to challenge even the expert skier (not myself!). The pistes tend to be more taxing than other European resorts and it's not really a beginner friendly resort. As for the mountain restaurants, Rendl has nothing to write home about, but on the main ski area you'll find some great ones! If you follow blue 8 down to St. Christoph, the Hospiz Alms is unbeatable for atmostphere, great food and there's even a slide down to the toilets - fantastic when you've got your ski boots on and had a few Gluweins!

OK, St Anton is what all the guide books say, difficult, challenging, an off piste paradise, however no one anywhere has mentioned the fact that the Austria power supply is carried through the Alberg pass. I found it a little strange skiing past the buzz and hum of huge pylons. One pylon actually straddles the piste. Zurs and Lech, which are also part of the Alberg region do not suffer from this ugly situation and the skiing over there is better unless you are searching for some of the best and most challenging mogal fields in Europe. I would definitely return to Alberg but probably not to St Anton. Maybe I am getting old and search for charm, character in a beautiful setting and not beer cr

I went to st anton in april 2006. being someone who had only done 1 week skiing 2 years previously and my family werent that good either, we had a great time. the slopes are not that great for beginners but there are lots of small blues in the village which are pleasant and with the help of the excellent ski school, once you progress to some longer and more challenging blues, its great. there are plenty of beautiful runs from gampen and galzig, (steissenbach or happy valley.) wonderful valleys that wind down the mountain. if you are a more accomplished skier it is a paradise. but the atmosphere is just great with the wonderful views across and down the valley. the mountain-side cafes and the
