St. Anton ski resort
The slopes and lifts on the Arlberg
The Arlberg is and remains legendary. The cradle of alpine skiing is aware of its pioneering role today and scores as one of the most state-of-the-art, best ski resorts in the Alps with a huge selection of slopes, powder snow runs and quite a bit more.
Arlberg skiing paradise
350 kilometres of slopes, almost 100 cable cars and lifts and more than 200 km of powder snow runs. The Arlberg is just one huge skiing paradise that grows a bit closer together year after year. Although not all the resorts are connected to each other at the moment you can reach the other resorts in the winter using the free ski bus.
Look forward to:
- 145 km of easy slopes
- 150 km of moderate slopes
- 55 km of difficult slopes
- Many of these are competition runs
- More than 60% of them have snow cannons
- Skiing fun from the beginning of December to the end of April.
Freeriding on more than 200 km of powder snow runs
One particular highlight of the Arlberg are the many runs in backcountry. You'd have to look for a long time to find ski tours and powder snow runs to this extent in any other place. Many of them can be reached by lifts, some of them you have to work to get to yourself. Highly recommended: the Arlberg is the only ski resort in Austria where heli-skiing is possible. The ski and mountain guides are your point of contact for this.
Learning to ski on the Arlberg
With more than 1,000 qualified and professional ski instructors, the Arlberg is also just the right region for beginners. Even some of the training academies for instructors are here. However, the Skischule Arlberg also provides courses for experienced skiers too. Be it for powder snow skiing or ski tours, heli-skiing or to learn the Telemark style.
Getting around the ski resort
There are just 200 metres to the Galzigbahn cable car bottom station from the Sporthotel St. Anton. As our guest you have free ski storage there and can start your skiing fun straight away. The blue buses take you up free to St. Christoph and then onto Lech if you have a valid ski pass. If the St. Anton ski resort is not enough for you then there are still plenty of new places for you to try out.
