Swiss skiing in St AntonWinter Sports in St Anton

Ski and snowboard 340 km of piste in St Anton between 1304-2811m


unreservedly love St Anton, possibly the most complete ski resort in the world. I have had so many fabulous trips to St Anton: It´s an easy drive from Switzerland, a destination served by rail from the UK and is reasonably well served by a number of airports. The skiing is awesome, there is bags of accessible off-piste and the village is lively, although perhaps not quite as much so as it once was. With new lifts for the 2016/7 season the resorts of Lech and Zurs are again accessible via the lift system, making this one of the most attractive circuits for both good off-piste and long cruisy runs. And the Mooserwirt - reputedly the bar serving more beer than anywhere in the whole of Austria - and the Krazy Kangaruh are just the liveliest apres-ski destinations in the whole Alps.
