Best party on the snow anywhere - 29/09/2014
Overall

St Anton not only has great skiing, especially off-piste powder, but has the best apres ski fun of anywhere in the world. My top tips. Have Lunch at the Hospiz Alm in St Chritoph and at the Rud-Alpe Gastronomie in Lech. Make sure you do the night-time sledding from Gampen to Nasserein, it's best I've done. The Spa relaxation centre is also world class. If you're group is good enough then I highly recommend a the Valluga backcountry run with a guide down to Zurs. As for the aprés ski there is just too much to choose from. Of course you have to do the Mooserwirt and Krazy Kangaruh but I would also recommend the Rodelhuute and the Heustadl. All of these require skiing down at the end and we finished everyday at the Basecamp bar at the bottom near the Glaziegbahn. A great place to meet up at the very end of the day. One last thing, don't miss going to the new area of Swarth Shroken which is extended off Lech. The best North Facing pistes in the whole area !

Apres Ski: 5/5

The best reosrt in the World! - 26/11/2012
Overall

St Anton is quite literally the greatest resort in the world. A pretty pedestrianised high street, second to non après ski, fantastic skiing and enough Jagermister to sink a ship.! What more could one ask for. The skiing is quite challenging and probably not recommended for beginners. The pistes are fairly steep and by the end of the day covered in moguls. For those that do enjoy the challenging stuff there is the steep Schindlergrat chutes, off piste Matun, back side of Rendl or (if willing to hike) dropping off the back to Zurs. If these activities take their toll then why not have a big lunch on the Post Hotel sun terrace in Stuben or at the Hospiz Alm in St Christoph. St Anton is often widely recognised as the après-ski capital of the Alps. The famous Mooserwirt and the Krazy Kanguruh on the mountain will be in full swing by 4pm with more ski boot stomping, dancing and Jager than you thought was possible. If you haven't passed out by 8pm then opt for the more relaxed Pub 37, Jacksies or Alibi. The locals in St Anton also make the resort with great service and generosity. You will always encounter bar owners (notably Pepi Gabl in the Fang house) buying Austrian schnapps for the whole bar! Once you have been to St Anton you will realise there is no other ski resort that comes close... Enjoy!
