I have spent the last two seasons in St Anton. The system is large and much of the offpiste is easily accessible. Given the interconnection between St Anton, Zürs and Lech, very varied rides are offered. The atmosphere in St. Anton is wonderful and you can get the best of both worlds here. The party can be crazy and the skiing is the same. I prefer skiing and here are some of my favorite ski in the Alps. There is good slope and very open spaces. In addition, the cushion was not very big in recent years and we could find untouched several days after the dump. There is also a bus to Sonnenkopf which I recommend everyone to go to, it is a wonderful area where the snow can be really good.
One tip is to go here for the first weeks of January to get good snow, cold and in addition to avoid all tourists. Last week in April has gone beyond the usual!

+ easy access of pillows
+ large lift system
+ nice city with a lot to find
+ slope on the slopes
+ snow proof

- a lot of people during high season weeks
- narrow slopes and some transport in St. Anton (the piste is generally better in Lech and Zürs)

-All the pictures below are connected to the lift and taken last week of the season-

A very good ski resort that offered a lot of snow, I was there no later than 14206. The first day dumped at least 20cm. The rest of the long weekend was the sunny and clear blue sky. Unfortunately, the trip ended with a flight into a low-prison helicopter to the nearest hospital. The elbows straight off and a fracture in the back.

If you like afterski and good skiing, then you have chosen the right one.

St. Anton is the capital of afterskins and has a great ride over many alpine peaks. Have done two seasons in the village so I have tried all the slopes a number of times, and I often dream back to the atmosphere that can be found down there, both as a tourist and seasonal!

Positive: I have been with Piste two Powder in St. Anton (see their website) for several years.
Their mountain guides always find a good offpiste even when all marked ski routers have become a puck piste.
I have traveled with them in St. Anton, the Rends side also down towards Pessnau, in the stump, down towards Langen and beyond in Zûrs,
Should you go from the top of Valluga towards Zürs, you must have a mountain guide with you.
And they also find when there is total fog before coming down into the woods. Okay, it costs a slant but for me it's worth the money. Tip: Buy a good topographic hiking map on the bookstore, so you can find out where the offpiste routes are located somewhere.
Negative: A lot of people in the slopes and ski rows even when it is not direct peak season. Dangerous here and there. There was a avalanche from the Kapall side down to many skiers in the ski route when I was there. Then hang on the low end.

Be in the Arlberg area week 10-12, ie in Mars. Had rented cars from Salzburg that we drove down with. The cars gave us good mobility throughout the Arlberg area: St. Anton, Zurs and Lech. We also went to Ischgl for a couple of days.

My personal feeling was that St. Anton is overrated as a ski resort. This because:

The backs are relatively narrow, and not too long
-Better afterski is found in the Alps (knowing we were not there during the most touristy time, but anyway ..)
-Dored to be in Austria
-Offpisten gets very quickly upbeat (easier to find untouched in Lech and Zurs)
-Lift systems between Lech / Zurs customer integrated
-The majority of the "longer " road ends down in the village
-For many people

+ Easy offpiste
+ Relatively snow proof
+ The opportunity to go to Lech and Zurs with the same lift pass
+ Many locals nearby if you have a car, the above Ischgl is 40min away

If you want a ride with good lift systems, long runs and good offpiste travel to Verbier, Les Arcs, Cervinia / Zermatt or Chamonix. On a smaller scale, Bad Gastein, Engelberg or Courmayeur are the way to go.

St. Anton is, however, a place that every skier must ever visit, party jersey or not.

A good ski resort, but maybe slightly overrated.
Was the 2001/2002 season and again 2012 2 days in week 8-9.
Going for snowboarding and skiing.

+ Alternating rides, with many systems.
+ Very many easily accessible offpiste areas and very large areas in their places.
+ Crazy party to be the alps.
+ Always travel to Lech and Zurich if there are a lot of people in Anton and for alternating rides.
+ Snow proof, often the most snow in the Alps (though not in the 2001/2002 season).

-Super to find the real bricks in the offpiste in comparison with Switzerland and France.
-Our slopes, but not very wide and long. Nasserein is a classic in the morning, and also for some reason.
-Offpisten gets excited very quickly.
-Expect week 8 and 9. The lift system does not cope with the hype when German and Dutch pour in.

Had a canoe week there in February 2010. Cozy, a lot of snow, cruel offpiste, a lot of people, good après ski, even more snow, sunshine, snowfall, good lifting capacity with some exceptions, nice backcoutry with long runs.

+ The train we went went directly from the outskirts of Copenhagen into the village, no bytes. As practical as Åre. Took 1 day single trip Stockholm - St. Anton. About the same as the Riksgränsen.
+ as good as many here testify. Much skiing.
+ There is plenty of off-piste.
+ Lech is a day trip.
+ At the age of 10 and 12, the children were mature for anything but Åre.
+ very organic goods at the store
+ bakery on the pedestrian street
+ good bus system for those who lived a bit outside.

- Our apartment smelled of mold
