The Arlberg region has always been famous for its beauty, reliable snow extending right down to the villages and the excellent condition of its slopes. A total of 88 of state-of-the-art cable cars and lifts offer the highest standard of safety and comfort. 306 kilometres of marked ski runs, superbly prepared slopes for all ability levels, and 200 km of off-piste and challenging steep slopes and deep-snow ski runs, snowboard fun parks, carving areas, permanent racing circuits and numerous mountain restaurants and après-ski pubs ensure variety and enjoyment. If you wish a break from skiing, St. Anton is well situated for day trips to places such as Zurich and Innsbruck.
The two lifts that leave the village of St. Anton take skiers and boarders to a vast ski network that connects several alpine villages including St. Christoph, Lech, Zurs and Stuben. As the village is located at 1304 meters, with an average of seven meters of snow each winter between November and May, visitors are assured of optimal conditions.
Our family operated quaint Flirsch Hotel Basur is located close to St. Anton and reached by a frequent complimentary ski bus service that reaches the ski lifts in only twenty minutes. With most buses departing from Flirsch itself, and at the gondola station, you'll have perfect opportunity to get a seat. However, if you'd like to leave your skis and boots close to the lift for après ski, shopping or strolling through the village, we will make arrangements for you to leave your skis and boots at no extra cost at a boot and ski depot, occasionally or daily, as you wish.
If you fancy getting out of St. Anton for a day then you could hop the train to the Tyrolian capital of Innsbruck to immerse yourself in this historical town, soak up the culture and return home at end of day via trains running every hour. No winter sports resort would be complete without an outdoor ice rink and St. Anton is no exception. From 1pm daily skates can be rented for a nominal charge at the outdoor skating rink beside the wellness centre.
The Hotel Basur offers guest free WIFI, use of an in-house spa area and a cute pub with daily specials. The breakfasts are buffet style and dinner offers three choices of main course and include a salad bar each evening.
