St. Anton, Austria
St. Anton happens to be one of the greatest mountains in the world, let alone in Europe. We highly recommend that you get a good grasp on riding before coming here; it is not the most forgiving mountain for beginners.

St. Anton Mountain
If you are an intermediate level rider, then you will definitely have a great time shredding down the 280 km of pistes and 180 km of marked off-piste runs. The mountain is known for having steep and deep powder, as well as being heavily forested. The mountain really does encourage riders to experience freeriding to the fullest, as even their runs seem to have little marking.

For riders that enjoy long runs and natural hits all over the landscape, St. Anton will be your best friend during your visit. A note for beginners is that the “easier” runs still need connection through black runs, which is why we highly suggest that you at least know how to efficiently pendulum. For experienced and daring riders with some disposable income, try heli and/or cat skiing for the full Austrian mountain experience.

Village
With cobbled streets and rustic lodges, this is the perfect little spectacle of St. Anton’s. Nonetheless, be sure to check out the multitude of bars and restaurants for some of the best craft and cuisines of the village. They also hold special events like the Après Ski, which starts high at the peak of the mountain and features a comedic bar crawl along with music festivals. So, be sure to check out the village and please go easy on the booze the night before your big day up on the mountain.
