Having worked in St. Anton for two winters and lived there for a summer too, this traditional Tyrolean resort has become my second home. I have just booked my flight back to this wonderful place and am now counting down the days.
Here are my four top tips when visiting St. Anton...
1. St Anton is world famous for its après ski, and for good reason, it is like nothing you have experienced before. When in St Anton you need to make sure you experience a couple of Jager bombs at both the Mooserwirt and Krazy Kangaroos; table dancing in ski boots is guranteed! If however you want to experience some more 'chilled' acoustic music in quirky surroundings then try the Underground.
2. For something more civilised, lunch on the sun drenched terrace at the famous Hospiz Alm in St Christoph is a must. The food is traditional and delicious. There is also a novel way of getting down to the bathrooms; once you have experienced it, you will never understand why other mountain restaurants don't have it!
3. The Wellness Centre in the centre of St Anton, where there are indoor and outdoor swimming pools, jacuzzis which are truly beautiful and relaxing after a long day on the hill. If you are more of a risk taker, try the traditional sauna, swimwear and towels are not permitted!
4. Finally, if off piste is what you came for then try Piste to Powder, their off piste guides are be best in resort, and know where all the freshest and untouched powder is!
I hope this has tickled your taste buds a little for this astonishing resort. Take a look at our fabulous luxury ski chalets in St. Anton and our luxury hotels St. Anton.
