Mention St Anton and chances are it won’t be long before someone brings up the Krazy Kanguruh, or the Mooserwirt. The slopeside bars have been the scene of many a memorable night for decades. But St Anton’s reputation is down to much more than its vibrant après scene. With its onion-domed churches, traditional chalets and fresco-painted buildings, it’s the quintessential Austrian resort. It’s also the country’s largest linked ski area, the Arlberg, which packs 305km of pistes, mostly in the intermediate range.
For the ambitious and the bold, there’s plenty of challenges, including the 85km Run of Fame, a route which begins in St Anton, crosses three mountain passes, and finishes in Warth.
