St Anton general information

St Anton general information


Getting here is easier by far than at many other Alpine resorts, with the closest airport, Innsbruck at 103kms, hosting full-service and low-cost flights from London and major UK cities via British Airways, EasyJet and Flybe as well as from other European destinations. Trains and bus services from here to the resort take around one and a half hours. From Munich Airport, transfer to Innsbruck and on via the Arlberg Express lands skiers in the resort within three hours, a longer journey but with more flight options at better prices, including full-service provided by Lufthansa as well as BA. Routes to Zurich from the UK are offered by British Airways, BMIbaby, EasyJet and Swiss International, and a number of international flights arrive here from the USA. The train to St Anton’s mainline station takes around two hours, with buses and shuttles taking longer.

From the UK, train travel is easy with Eurostar, via Paris Nord and the high speed service from Paris Est to Zurich, followed by the local service to St Anton. The trip takes around 10 hours, avoiding the chance of flight delays due to winter weather. By road, drivers should head for the Swiss E60 motorway, running to Austria through the Arlberg tunnel and exiting close to the village.

Lift passes at St Anton include other ski areas in the Arlberg ski region, linked by cheap or free ski bus services and giving a vast and varied choice of runs. Discounts are available for children, teenagers, families, groups, seniors and active seniors over 76 years of age (!), with a full season’s skiing here costing less than a 14 day pass at the French resorts. Booking online or as part of a package deal may result in further discounts. Passes are issued as electronic chip cards and require a small deposit.
