St Anton - High Altitude Skiing in a top ski resort

St Anton has also made successful efforts in recent years to make the resort child-friendly too. The Nasserein area of St Anton is the perfect location for family skiing. Two of the main children’s ski areas are convenient to our chalets - one at the foot of the gondola and one at the top. The Pepi Gabl Chalet is just next to the gondola and the Markus and the Adler are a short stroll away to make life easy for our Esprit ski classes.

Meanwhile, it is the appeal of the biggest ski area in Austria which will make keen skiing parents’ eyes light up, with 260 kms of pistes and 180kms of unpisted ‘deep snow runs’ to choose from and a snow record to be proud of.

Esprit Classic Child Care

For parents our Esprit Classic Child Care offers a completely seamless service and means being able to leave your accommodation after breakfast to head for the first lift, only needing to return after the last one shuts. We look after you children completely throughout the ski day if you wish. For the kids it means non-stop fun with english speaking staff and children!

Collection Service

Five mornings a week, children in Beginner, Improver, Improver Xtra and Intermediate Xtra Sprite classes are collected by our staff and either walk or are taken by minibus to the meeting point at the Nasserein Gondola for their lessons. Beginner and Improver children joining Snow Club will be collected at the end of their lesson and returned to the Chalet Pepi Gabl for lunch.

Xtra Sprites classes include lunch with the ski school, and these children will be collected at the end of their lessons in the afternoon and taken back to the Chalet Mountain Star, where they will re-join the other children for fun and games. Alternatively, parents may collect them at the designated time and location. Spritelet Snow Clubbers will be collected by our staff for their morning’s fun and will be taken to their lessons in the Nasserein Nursery Garden after lunch and returned to the Chalet Mountain Star to join the other children in Snow Club when their lesson ends.

The Skiing in St. Anton

The Skiing

Ski range from 1,300m – 2,650m

Beginners

There is a beginners’ area for adults too in Nasserein, and some lovely blue runs down from Gampen at the top of the gondola to progress to as you improve. The ski-school has an excellent reputation for helping first-time skiers through those early days, to reach a level you can be proud of at the end of the week.

Intermediates

St Anton has incredible skiing for intermediates, with the ‘Happy Valley’ for those who are looking for lovely cruising runs, and the wide open slopes of Lech and Zürs offering sensational scenery and great snow. There are plentifiul challenges too at all levels, including bumps and unpisted ‘deep snow trails’ to explore, and the men’s World Cup downhill run is not to be missed!

Advanced

Quite simply, this is one of the world’s absolute best resorts for expert skiers, with a magical variety of consistently challenging skiing, including fiendish blacks, exhilarating off-piste and bumps galore. In short, this is definitely one of those resorts every keen skier wants to notch up on their ski-pole.

Powder Potential

The off-piste here is unequalled, and the snow record outstanding, with St Anton regularly getting a lot more snow than French resorts of the same height. Powder is left unpisted on 180kms of marked ‘trails’, and there are endless acres of off-piste to explore as well, for some of which a guide is recommended.

Snowboarding

The steady upgrade of the lift system, with more and more chairlifts replacing T-bars, clearly benefits boarders too, and the steep terrain and plentiful powder add to the appeal, particularly for more experienced boarders.

Après Ski

St Anton is justly renowned for its extensive and lively après ski scene. For the energetic, there is ice-skating, tobogganing and indoor tennis, plus the superb new Wellness Centre, or for an après-ski drink, there are plentiful bars and cafés, ranging from loud and lively to atmospheric and relaxing. At night, the liveliest nightlife is concentrated in the resort centre – well away from our chalets in Nasserein.
