Whether it's a fair judgement or not, St Anton is well-known and loved for its lively nightlife and apres ski, heralded as the queen of the Alps on this front! Whilst this can indeed be understood at around 5pm when skiing past the rowdy audience, stamping upon the tables at the established Mooserwirt or Krazy Kangeroo slopeside restaurants, it's not the epitome of the resort. Family friendly and traditional at heart, the pedestrianised street that is the central vein to St Anton is very beautiful. Not clad with shoulder to shoulder uber exclusive boutiques, you'll need to pop over to the neighbouring resorts of Lech & Zurs for these, but instead an eclectic mix of restaurants, bars & shops that cater to all tastes (and depths of pockets!).
The skiing, however, is St Anton's bijou gem. As the largest resort of Austria's largest connected ski area, Arlberg, by staying in St Anton you have this ski area easily accessible at your finger tips. From the great heights of the towering Valluga Mountain heralding Europe's longest lift-connected-on-ski's off-piste trail (ski guide advised) to the gentle nursery slopes of the Nassarein, this ski area really does offer something for everyone. As well as a plethora of activities for non-skiers too; be it the 4km toboggan run down from Gampen to Nasserein with the obligatory 'Gluhwein' stop off half way down. Or a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the magical valley of Verwall - there really is 'fun for all the family' here. And all served up with the friendly Austrian hospitality which is a reason in its own right to visit St Anton.
