Visitor Reviews of St Anton
Jamie Barrington from United Kingdom writes:
I have been to St Anton three times before and two of those are in April and even then the pistes are white. I went in February 2015 and I was lucky enough to experience the 4.3km sled run; it was great fun. The off-piste skiing was good too; great expanses of powder. On-piste was excellent with a wide variety of slopes. The new heated chairlift: Tanzböden and the fun slope at Galzig are great. We had a small dump when we were there and it made great skiing. The Rendl is great for photos and when the other mountains are limited with snow there is always snow over there. The lift staff are friendly and the village is beautiful with lots of places to get equipment and you can ski to the nearby villages on the same ski pass. St Anton is a great place to ski.
