Known as the ‘cradle of alpine skiing,’ St. Anton is a small and traditional Tirolean mountain village that was the birthplace of what we recognise as modern skiing.
At the heart of the largest connected skiing area in Austria, St. Anton is a wonderful blend of traditional alpine cosiness with cosmopolitanism. It offers the discerning skier a choice of the best in piste options alongside a well-known and lively apres-ski scene.
With more than 300km of marked downhill runs, there is something for both experienced skiers and those who like to take things at a more leisurely pace. Visitors who seek adventure can take advantage of another 200km of off-piste trails that are the perfect way to soak up the mountain scenery which makes St. Anton a picture-postcard destination. More than 88 lifts and cable cars create a network of routes that you can take – whether you are looking for your next black run or learning through one of the ski schools available.
Away from the awe-inspiring slopes, St. Anton offers the arl.rock sports park where you can climb, play tennis, or challenge your friends to a game of bowling – or you can stroll through the main street that is packed with designer and boutique shopping as well as exciting bars and pubs.
Below we explore five of our favourite luxury ski chalets in St.Anton for large groups this ski season.
Up to 25 people can indulge in the opulence and luxury of Chalet Lena. Designed to look like a palatial Georgian manor from the outside, the interior is a stunning blend of alpine timber and stone with neutral tones, finished with contemporary fixtures and fittings. Over five floors of sumptuous style make up this impressive chalet, and the nine individual ensuite bedrooms have plenty of charm and are individually finished.
Start the day with a cooked or continental breakfast before you head out to the resort centre – just a 10-minute walk (or three-minute drive) away.
The open-plan living area is the perfect place to convene after skiing, taking pre-dinner champagne and canapes while you discuss your runs. An early children’s supper is provided, while the adults can enjoy a balanced and delicious three-course dinner created by the two experienced chefs on staff at the chalet. With a dedicated library and a cinema room, the opportunities to unwind are endless – and with the wellness facilities including an indoor/outdoor swimming pool and a hot tub as well as a steam room, sauna and even a private gym, your stay will be the epitome of luxurious ski breaks.
Chalet Eden Rock
From the outside, Chalet Eden Rock looks like a traditional alpine chalet – with antique wood, local stone, and Austrian-styled shutters. Inside, however, are all the luxurious modern features that you need for an opulent, comfortable stay. You’ll find soft and fluffy bathrobes and towels in each ensuite, along with a collection of bath and beauty products.
Chalet Eden Rock is made up of three individual apartments, with impressively large bedrooms. When taken as a whole, there are 10 twin or double bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom – so up to 20 guests can stay together, sharing the impressive lobby area and making use of the facilities – which include an open bar for house wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks, an indoor pool, a sauna, and a steam room. Guests can arrange massages and other treatments in the treatment room, and the fitness room offers space for exercise if you haven’t had enough on the slopes.
The experienced chef will ensure that you and your guests have a daily breakfast and afternoon tea, while the hosts are on hand to provide you with any assistance you might need during your stay.
Take advantage of the in-resort driving service to get you to the piste and lifts in just two minutes – and the resort centre is three minutes’ drive (or a 15-minute walk).
Perfectly situated for access to the lifts – just a minute away – Chalet 47 has all you will need for the ultimate in comfortable relaxation.
Sleeping up to 24 guests in 12 ensuite bedrooms, luxury is the key theme throughout. Traditional style meets modern conveniences in this beautiful chalet – you can take advantage of the spa area, with sauna, steam room and treatment areas, or sink into a delightful hot tub – all while taking in the breath-taking views in a chalet that is stylishly appointed with rustic charm and contemporary style.
Two experienced chefs are part of the dedicated staff, and with daily breakfast and afternoon tea as well as dinner on five nights of your stay, you can refuel after an action-packed day on the piste (or shopping in the designer boutiques).
An open bar is an option for those who want a quiet evening – but if the lively apres-ski scene of St. Anton is more your speed, then you are just a five-minute drive from the resort centre.
Chalet Montfort Lodge
Combining the facilities of both Chalet Montford and Chalet 53, this is the ultimate in large group luxury for up to 32 guests. Friends, family, or co-workers can share this flexible space, with 13 ensuite bedrooms to choose from.
Designed to reflect the natural beauty of the mountain backdrop, the traditional wood and stone construction is mirrored inside through the use of marble, wood, and warm colours – but with modern conveniences in fixtures and fittings.
Chalet Montford Lodge goes above and beyond to provide an unbeatable concierge service, with hosts and chefs working alongside a resort manager to ensure that everything you need is on hand.
After your delicious breakfast, you can make the short five-minute walk to the piste to get started on a day of skiing, or head to the resort centre which is just a minute away. On your return, the chefs will have prepared an afternoon tea, and you can make use of the sumptuous sauna and massage room to complete your relaxation rituals.
The dining room seats up to 30 guests, and you can choose one of the two living rooms to enjoy pre-dinner canapes and the open bar – and then a balanced and carefully chosen dinner will be served, with just the right house wines to go with it.
With desirable ski-in/ski-out access, Chalet Tschoder could not be more convenient, perched on the edge of the piste and just a two-minute drive from the resort centre. You can make use of the shared driving service to get you further if you want to explore the area a bit more, too.
This apartment has the feel of a chalet, offering wide spaces with a stunning blend of traditional alpine materials alongside the latest contemporary style. Big windows and cosy nooks combine for perfect spots to take in the beautiful surroundings, and the blend of solid, classic architecture and the soft edges of sofas and chairs covered with touchable throws makes this the most comfortable and comforting place to stay.
Up to 14 people can enjoy the breathtaking views from Chalet Tschoder, spread over three floors. The focus here is on opulence and relaxation, with a cinema room as well as a private gym, sauna, and steam room. The hot tub is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day on the slopes, with some champagne, of course.
