The St. Anton skiing offers visitors scenic views over 9,000 feet, a vertical drop of 5,000 feet and runs up to five miles long. Beginners and intermediates will enjoy the open snow fields accessed by the Rendlbahn gondola as well as the meandering trails among the Kapall and Galzig complexes. The Galzig-Valluga cable cars carry skiers to the more challenging runs from the Vallugagrat to the village of St. Christoph, a sister ski area that is included on the St. Anton ski pass, along with Zürs, Lech and Stuben.
To access Lech and Zurs ski resorts, you’ll travel along a breathtaking route of narrow roads and tunnels that puncture sky high Alpine peaks. The skiing at these iconic Austrian resorts is exceptional, and the views make the experience that much better. A visit to Lech and Zurs is also a must because this region is considered the birthplace of skiing.
There are few places better for first time skiers and beginners. St. Anton's two ski schools are famed as the largest ski schools in the world, boasting 300 instructors who are well-practiced in the famous Arlberg technique.
