Ski Resort Review – What people think of the St. Anton ski area

Last updated 08.11.2017HolgerHolger

Want to know what St Anton am Arlberg is really like? British journalist and filmer Chris Moran and editor James Fage visited the Tirolean ski resort and spoke to visitors and locals on the chairlifts, in the bars and on the slopes to get their take on it.

Highlights include:

  • The first ever ski school opened in St Anton, hence the resorts slogan: The Cradle of Alpine Skiing
  • St Anton has lovely old traditional hotels as well as super-modern ‘boutique’ hang outs. The mix of old and new is great.
  • It’s famous for its off-piste skiing, with plenty of specialist powder specialist courses based in the area.
  • The Valuga cable car is passengers only: no skis (unless you’re on an off-piste course)
  • The Galzig gondola is one of the most amazing engineering feats of any ski resort.
  • The Krazy Kangaruh, the Sennhütte and the legendary Mooserwirt are some of the best apres-ski in Austria. Which is saying something!
  • The Rodelbahn is a sledge-only piste that’s amazing for kids, families and people who want to put a smile on their face.
  • The White Thrill (Der Weiße Rausch) is an annual ski race down the Veluga piste open to all-commers.

A head for heights is advantageous for those living in mountainous terrain. Holger Gassler has not but that doesn’t stop him from mountain biking, hiking or, as soon as the first snow hits the ground, hitting the slopes.
