What’s Going on in St. Anton?
The first thing that pops to mind when we hear Anton am Arlberg is skiing – and there is a reason for this. It is the exact place where Alpine skiing was invented at the beginning of the 20th century. Already in 1901 the Arlberg Ski Club was founded in St. Christoph. The skiing technique developed at the Arlberg modernised skiing and reached international popularity also through ski-movies like “White Frenzy”.
The Arlberg has always been considered the cradle of Alpine skiing. Today, 85 modern ski-lifts lead to Austria’s biggest ski area with more than 280 km of perfectly groomed pistes. There are no limits for skiers and snowboarders with the Ski Arlberg Ticket - from St. Anton via St. Christoph to Stuben, Zürs and Lech. As of the 2017/2018 winter season a new gondola starts service in Warth.
St. Anton is member of the renowned “Best of the Alps” Club – members are Lech, St. Moritz or Zermatt – and therefore home to a number of exclusive hotels. This place is also very well known for its après ski bars. Partying and skiing go together well in St. Anton.
