St. Anton is a ski resort in the Tyrolean Alps, with aerial tramways and chairlifts up to 2,811 m (9,222 ft), yielding a vertical drop of 1,507 m (4,944 ft). It is not only popular in winter but in summer among hikers, trekkers and mountaineers.
The ski region includes 94 cable cars and ski lifts, 340 km (210 mi) of groomed terrain and 200 km (120 mi) of deep-snow runs, all of which are covered under one “liftpass”. It is particularly popular by advanced skiers, but is equally enjoyed by families and intermediates. In good snow conditions the off-piste skiing is outstanding. Unfortunately, those slopes are facing the south side and tracks quickly become sun affected.
St Anton has retained a distinct Tyrolean charm. It remains a cozy and authentic mountain village. The centre is a pedestrian zone. The main street is called “Dorfstrasse” where you find hotels, restaurants and bars. Most of them are still timber and stone farmhouses.
