Apres Ski in St Anton

St Anton is one of the world’s greatest ski resorts. Known not only for its glorious mountain scenery, marvellous ski slopes and fantastic facilities, but also for its infamous après-ski scene. The nightlife in St Anton is wild; every club has a positive and energetic vibe, dancing on tabletops is actively encouraged, and Seasonnaires party alongside aristocrats.

Bars and Clubs

Arguably the most famous bars in St Anton, perhaps even in the whole of Austria, are the Mooserwirt and Krazy Kanguruh. KK’s provides the backdrop to an afternoon of debauchery; a heaving crowd singing loudly along to pumping pop / rock music and dancing on the tables in their ski boots, waitresses moving through the throng and dispensing shots of spirits straight into the skiers’ wide open mouths. The Mooserwirt eclipses even KK’s as an infamous institution of intoxication; claiming to get through at least 2,500 litres of beer every day, the Mooserwirt sells more beer per sq metre of floor space than anywhere else in the country, despite being halfway up a mountain and closing at 8pm every day.

So with Krazy Kanguruh on one side and the Mooserwirt on the other, St Anton’s home run, blue piste number one, has become the après-ski capital of the world.

Veterans of St Anton’s après scene will know the Austrian resort still has more to offer; Taps is adjoined to KK’s and will regularly see punters climbing the rafters whilst the owner, Egon, hands out free trays of his homemade schnapps; Griabli draws fans of champagne and a more sophisticated après-ski, with the bar and restaurant located right next to the Mooserwirt but with some of the best food and service in St Anton.

If you’ve got the stamina, and the inclination, then après-ski doesn’t have to finish once the mountainside bars close their doors. St Anton boasts a whole host of nightclubs, namely Piccadilly, Bar Cuba, Anthony’s and Kandahar. One of the most popular is Kandahar, which pumps out music by international DJs from midnight til the early hours. Piccadilly plays live music most nights and Bar Cuba is a favourite with the winter season staff.

Après-Ski with the Kids

Although internationally known for the aforementioned party scene, that’s not all St Anton has to offer. There’s an endless variety of activities to get involved in during the day and the evening; places for chilling out and relaxing, as well as various family friendly venues.

If you’re taking the kids to St Anton this year then there are plenty of opportunities for them, and you, to have fun too. Whisk them up the mountain and try the heady adrenaline rush of tobogganing, or swap your skis for boots and take one of the many popular hiking trails to enjoy the stunning scenery and fresh mountain air.

If you really want to make the most of the fairytale scenery of the magnificent winter wonderland, why not book a horse drawn sleigh ride? The sleigh will take you around the Verwall Valley and can be booked as a family, or leave the little ones with the trusty childcare and take a ride with your partner. Turn it into a romantic evening with a lit path as you sit back and relax with a glass of wine and are taken around the gorgeous resort. Finish your evening off in the cosy Verwell Inn and enjoy a romantic meal for two.

There are plenty of family friendly restaurants and bars on offer too, most of which either have a special kids menu available or simply offer smaller portions. There is also a fantastic sport and wellness centre available, the Arlberg Wellness Centre, which is a brilliant place for mums and dads to chill out whilst the kids let off steam. There are excellent climbing facilities which can be enjoyed by all ages, as well as indoor and outdoor swimming pools, waterfalls and a small paddling pool and a selection of fun slides. There is also a gym and an ice rink. For the parents, there are a wonderful selection of luxury multi-level saunas and massage rooms, making it a fantastic place to relax your aching limbs after a long day of skiing and playing with the kids.
