Pettneu is a pretty, quiet village about 6kms from St Anton on very frequent (typically every 15 mins) free skibus routes. We stayed at Camping Arlberg Feb/Mar 2017 right by the Wellness Centre (also very goof facility). Pettneu is not a place to go skiing, but with the whole Arlberg ski area (the largest in Austria) close by, it really is no hardship to catch the free bus to either Ost or West bus stops in St Anton. Pettneu has a few bars and restaurants and a reasonably priced supermarket. Coffee at Backer Reutz near the church is excellent.
St Anton is fairly lively at times and food is available quite late compared to other German/Austrian resorts in our experience. However, whilst lift system is very good, the pistes are poorly maintained and it is not uncommon for blue runs leading back to the town, particularly the rather inappropriately named Happy Valley & run 50, to be full of moguls. For beginners this must be intimidating. Shame on the St Anton pisteurs, given the amount they charge for lift passes!!
In conclusion, Pettneu is a great village to stay, but with easy access to St Anton, Lech & Zurs.

We stayed at the Berghotel Lavenar (www.lavenar.at) in Feb 2006, which is an all-inclusive (full board, drinks, free admission to local swimming pool, etc.) very comfortable little family/kids-orientated 25 bed place right on the piste on a small plateau (1300m) at the top of the Pettneu cablecar (new for 2007). Limited selection of runs (8), but very reasonable, and since the owners of the Hotel (Windisch family) also own and run the pistes at Pettneu - lift passes are included in the pricing, which makes it a great deal for a first Family Ski Trip. St Anton is only 10 mins by free Skibus, if one seeks greater challenges. Highly recommended for a low cost all-in intro to family skiing.
