The terrain is varied, as well as the gradients that offer great opportunities for high speed, high octane acceleration, again lesser gradients that assist the new skiers in homing in their skills, 30 000 feet high-reaching in the St Anton mountains. St Anton does not have the tradition or acclaim that its neighbour Solden has managed to gain, however many from around the world still choose St Anton as their preference for an international skiing vacation. The reasons for this are simple – its appeals to a different skiing niche. Whilst Solden has hosted many world renowned skiing occasions, it has became too commercialised for some skiers who claim the facility has became to snap, and almost too forgiving on certain slopes.
With 8 runs and rising, St Anton has failed to give consequence pressure from around the world, for man - made slaloms, and safety alterations on runs. When you are skiing on certain sloped in St Anton, you have to have your wits about you, or of moment dangerous could easily follow. The facility has also gained much repute from adrenaline junkies in the snowboarding field, who rank St Anton as being apart of the best facilities in the world.

This is becoming the new trend in snowboarding, and what better place to do it, than at St Anton.
During my trip to St Anton to check - it - out I found that the hotels around the area were brilliant, making it no problem for English speaking holiday makers to love themselves. I stayed at a luxury 5 star hotel that had an indoor heated swimming pool. The gilded pool peaked out onto the top of a snowy mountain as you bathed in 40 degrees water.
I would have to say that the general activity around the area is amazing, as you sense the genuine desire for skiing shared by everyone who goes along and takes part. Before I went I had never been skiing before, and I found the tuition excellent. They had multi - lingual skiing instructors on compensation to try and aid any new skiers visiting the slopes. I was also prejudiced to a specific slope that was built seeing new - starts, which also has an easy access point to a lift - perfect for picking that up as well.
The area is amazing to look at, and further offers great entertainment for the non - skier, or skier on a nightfall - off! Keep secret clubs, pubs and shops all their to service the slopes, it is no wonder that the skiing facility has three 5 star hotels positioned next to the slopes. With all night lawn social within the hotels, and all - night snowboarding it really is impossible to get a minutes rest in St Anton. Should you visit it is said that the conditions are best around August, however that’s in the peak of the skiing season, forging it impossible to get moving around the slopes. In order to interest from the best conditions, whilst the slopes are quieter I would say November is the best time. You are also more likely to get discounts from your travel agent at this future.
