Make the Best of a St. Anton Ski Holiday at Budget Prices

St. Anton offers all the action of a full-fledged ski resort town with the most happening nightlife in the Austrian Alps, as well as a wide range of restaurants, shops, and accommodations. Your choice of places to stay in St. Anton is unlimited and includes all types from quality hotels to cheap and cheerful apartments, and a good choice of ski chalets.

 

  • Many hotels in Austria are family-run and offer personal service. You’ll find surprisingly good facilities at reasonable prices, especially in smaller resorts.
  • Going to the sauna after the pistes to warm up and relax tired muscles, as well as fine dining is considered as important as the skiing itself. So you'll miss out on a great part of the Austrian ski experience if you book accommodation without sauna facilities.
  • Book accommodation as far in advance as you can. The number of beds in most resorts is limited, and the later you book the less likely you are to find good value.
  • Accommodation in some cheap packages may not be located in the main ski resort, but in a nearby town from which you must connect by bus.
  • Self-catering accommodation is also widely available, but bear in mind that the difference in total price between a half-board hotel and a self-catering apartment is not much. Many skiers find they have little energy or desire to cook a meal and clean up themselves after a tiring day on the pistes.
  • Guest houses can provide you with traditional cuisine but it is easy to find a Kebab or Pizza/Italian restaurant.
  • Hotel food is normally excellent, since hotels compete for guests with their cuisine, while slope restaurants compete with their location. Therefore, it may be a good idea to book half-board instead of eating on the slopes.
  • The après-ski life is quite diverse including sunny outdoor cafes, late night discos and traditional Tyrolean entertainment.

St. Anton is a modern holiday resort that has retained its traditional appeal. Hospitality and Tyrolean customs are as much a trademark of the village as its international, cosmopolitan character.

Package ski holidays in St. Anton are normally more convenient and often cheaper if you plan on skiing for a week only. Use online resources to customize your accommodations, air travel, ground transportation, lift tickets, ski or snowboard rentals, activities to events around town, and more, with the best deals and offers. Put together a St. Anton ski vacation package that will truly be an unforgettable experience, at the best prices.
