Safety tips

On every ski tour and every trip off-piste the following applies: Safety first! The safety of our customers and also of the ski guides has top priority. Before the start of a tour, we collect and evaluate the current information and the snowpack build-up. However, if the snow and weather conditions are not right, we reserve the right to change or cancel the tour. Dia equipment for off-piste guiding and ski touring is mandatory. LVS (buried search) equipment, shovel, probe, backpack (with airbag), first aid kit and cell phone.

Emergency App Mountain Rescue Tyrol

The emergency app Bergrettung Tirol (Leitstelle Tirol GmbH) was developed especially for alpine emergencies within Tyrol. Thus, it can only be used in Tyrol. It makes it possible that in the acute emergency situation at the push of a button a transmission of one’s own location (by GPS coordinate) to the control center Tirol GmbH takes place and at the same time a telephone connection with this is established. As a result, the required rescue forces are alerted and dispatched by the Tirol GmbH control center.


The most important functions in an emergency include:
– Automatic transmission of personal and location data (GPS coordinates via Internet or SMS, establishing a telephone connection to Leitstelle Tirol GmbH).

The emergency app Bergrettung Tiel (Leitstelle Tirol GmbH) is also equipped with a test function, which makes it possible to test the functioning of the data transmission and the telephone connection without hesitation and without triggering a false alarm. 


We recommend an insurance that covers the risks of skiing/snowboarding in the free ski area.

Guests review

Maeve C.
"Our travel agency has been working with St. Anton Classic Guides and Ski Instructors for 10 years. We find this cooperation very pleasant because they are professional and attentive. Our guests are always impressed by the high level of ski instruction they experience at St. Anton Classic. But the ski instructors and guides also know the Arlberg very well and are the right specialists between St. Anton and Lech."
"I went skiing for the first time last week in St. Anton am Arlberg and needed ski lessons to learn how to ski. I had a great conversation in the office and immediately felt comfortable.... Tom helped me and was a very friendly, patient and helpful ski instructor. He taught me the basics of skiing in 2 days and made me enjoy skiing."
