What to Expect

Known as the ‘cradle of alpine skiing’ for its pioneering role in the sport, St. Anton was home to the world’s first ski club in 1901 and the first alpine ski race in 1904. Since then St. Anton has joined with a host of neighboring resorts – St. Christoph, Stuben, ​Lech, ​Zürs, ​Warth, and​Schröcken – to form one of the top 10 largest linked ski areas in the world, Ski Arlberg. Skiers looking for a challenge can take on the ‘Run of Fame,’ a 52-mile circuit passing through the entire vast ski area.

"A little nonsense now and then is cherished by the wisest men."

-Roald Dahl

If you’re planning a trip to St. Anton, there are two key things to prepare for: epic steeps and many long nights. Perhaps because they’re pulling death-defying stunts on the slopes on Valluga North, St. Anton aficionados are known to go hard in the evenings, making for some of the best après parties in the Alps. But if you want to join in the steep skiing fun, you’d better hire a guide. You can’t go up the famed Valluga II lift with skis or a board in hand without one.
