Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

My daughter (resident in Innsbruck) was on the way to St Anton this morning via train - this was announced. So is now gone to Kappl. She has her valid test.

@pam_w Indeed, I spoke to the tourist office who told me that it is incorrect to say that 96 people were fined. In fact there were 96 'offences' from about 30 people and at the time I spoke to them none had been fined and certainly none had been imprisoned. They also noted that St Anton has zero cases of Covid

Hey folks

I think this Fire incident ha already been mentioned somewhere else....

Lech's Biomass Central Warming System went up in smoke... They managed to save the Technical part of the building so the heating can be maintained ..also there are two other plants ..

St Anton will be restarting limited lift operations this weekend.

Frankly, I am surprised. I thought they were done for the season. Maybe some hope for late season skiing for those who are able to make it there.

@davidthornton, nope, for skiing. Basically just the Galzig area, as it was before they shut, with Nassereinbahn at the weekends.

Probably under pressure from locals, who saw that almost all other resorts in AT are still spinning lifts.

@stanton, that depends on how one defines normal, I believe it’ll be a lot more “normal” than the one we are emerging from. Who needs crazy apres anyway apart from the bar owners. We need snow and it’ll be there next winter, and so will we be! That’s normal enough imv....

Yeah, me too… i don’t need apres to enjoy StA. As long as there is snow, the lifts are turning, and any restrictions are commensurate with the threat, then that is all I need. I would however hope that on-mountain food services are open in some form.

All that said, the apres does not bother me. I try to avoid skiing past Mooser at end of day (or be hyper alert) and we live in a quiet part of Nasserein. It is kinda fun watching people attempting to dance to Sweet Caroline at Heustadel while riding the Galzigbahn to catch the last few runs on a sunny late afternoon.

At the very least, they should be able to pull off some sort of outside dinning operations on mountain. Heck, the best times I have ever had with the dining/apres scene have been sitting outside drinking a beer or noshing on some raclette enjoying views of the Alps. Can't wait to get back there just for such an experience. The Euro ski resorts not only invented the apres scene, they have perfected it!

Interesting how opinions differ. In my mind, since I first visited St Anton in 1999, it has been gradually gentrified and most of the liveliest places (and some of the best, quieter ones) have disappeared. Which is fine by me as I'm now middle-aged!

Look.. If you do not like Apres Ski .. Do not come to St Anton or Austria . Very Happy


St Anton ..... Ski Hard , Party Hard...Day & Night ...

If you Do not like that and want QUIET stay away and go to France or Italy etc instead.

Over there you will find it more suitable & enjoyable. The bonus for is that we will not have to put up with the increasing numbers of whingin Poms like we have done the last 20 seasons + ...



We dont want to see/have Cosmo Trendy City Center food ...Vegan, Vegetarian , Sushi, Poke Bowls, etc ... b u ll scheiß .

Apres Ski ALLDAY.

Non Stop Bier, Schnaaps and Full on hearty Austrian Food to keep us full & energy levels to the MAX.

Wine... Go over to the Western Arlberg...

Stop The Brutal Grooming.

St.Anton used to be more stylish, and more ‘serious skiing’ in the 90ies
Can’t help but feeling sad when driving past the village. Totally different...mass tourism all-over. Ski-Industry
Today even the food at Hospiz Alm is of poor quality...

Yep, not so many drunks and yobs back then. No boarders either, or few of them. Yep, the mountains are still the same ones, albeit much more crowded, but every day you have to come down off them!
But I still go back. Cool

Don't know if anyone else has seen this? - We arrived into St Anton on 7th March 2020 and had to leave 13th on buses back to Zurich police road-blocks at Moos and the driver had to take all the backroads due to huge queues at the Swiss border. Strangest week skiing ever I think, if these allegations are true then Tirol didn't seem to have done us any favours. 3 of our party of 4 got Covid within 7 days of return, thankfully we all got over it and none of us was hospitalised but just shows what was potentially going on behind the scenes....
