INSIDE ST. ANTON

THE ALBERG
SKI AREA

Did you know, the first ever ski school was formed in 1921 by the Ski Club Arlberg which itself was founded in St. Anton in 1901? Fast forward to 2020 and we, the St. Anton Classic ski school, are celebrating our 10-year anniversary and lots has happened to this small farming village between these historic dates.

The original Galzigbahn was built in 1937 followed by Gampen, St Christoph, Valluga and Kappal lifts. Winter sports enthusiasts from around the globe increased over the years as alpine skiing grew in popularity and in 1975 the resort expanded with the opening of lifts on the Rendl mountain.

St. Anton has an impressive heritage and is regarded as the Cradle of Alpine Skiing thanks to the ski pioneer Hannes Schneider, but it has also developed a legendary après scene thanks to the infamous Krazy Kanguruh and Mooserwirt bars which sprang up in the 70s and 80s.

OUR TOP TIPS ON THE SKI MOUNTAIN

OSTHANG (Skirun)

Take the Galzigbahn to find this practice slope perfect for graduates of the beginner areas at Nasserein and Gampen. It’s blue, wide and sunny giving you the confidence to nail the technique before taking the next slightly harder blue run down to St. Christoph. There’s also another nice blue run down to the Tanzböden lift giving you another option on the Galzig side.

RENDL (Ski Mountain on the south side)

Wait until the sun hits the Rendl slopes before heading up to this quieter side of the mountain or head up early if you like fast carving turns on empty slopes. This area is more suited to improvers, intermediate and advanced skiers, and there’s also a Fun Park at Rendl Beach as it’s affectionately known. Kickers, rails and boxes are all waiting for you if you dare or take a break and watch the cool kids from the comfort of the bar with a coffee or nice cold beer. A fantastic lunch is waiting for you at the Rendl Restaurant and can be enjoyed on the large terrace boasting stunning views. Loads of off-piste routes here too or enjoy the long red run back to St. Anton although it’s wise to take the gondola down if you’re feeling tired as it can get bumpy later in the day.

RUN OF FAME

You need to get your skates on for this one as there’s a lot of kilometres to cover in one day. Starting in St. Anton this on-piste route will take you from St Anton to the far end of the Arlberg ski area in Warth and back again, all in one day and on one ski pass. A perfect opportunity for more advanced skiers to explore what the Arlberg has to offer with stunning scenery along the way. Keep an eye out for mountain goats or even an Ibex on slope 100.

VALLUGA NORTH FACE

You’ll need to book a guide for this famous route and have off-piste experience before taking on the Valluga North Face.

There is a large choice of restaurants (for lunch) on the mountain, Self-service at Galzig, Gampen and Rendl, plus many places on the way to the villages St. Anton and St. Christoph. Our guides can suggest various places ‘en route’ in the villages of Zürs, Lech and Warth or help you find a special place to meet up with your family or friends.

APRÈS SKI

Some suggestions for where to party at the end of your ski day.In town visit the Basecamp across the Gampen-Chair station, Café Anton a contemporary place with the small named “Square” in front. The famous apres ski district on the run back to St. Anton offering Sennhütte, Heustadl, Kaminstube, Griabli Mooserwirt and the damous Krazy Kanguruh, on the way to NASSEREIN don’t miss out the Rodel Alm a sunny terrace with a rustic hut.

MUSEUM

On bad weather days or if you need to recharge your batteries, head over to the Museum and immerse yourself in the history of St. Anton and how it transformed itself into a world renown ski resort. Enjoy the culinary delights in the restaurant within this beautiful building which you may recognise as it was used as the chalet in the film Chalet Girl.
