The Easter ski week is very popular among families, and these days more than ever St Anton is proving that it really is well set up for children taking to the snow. Yes, this is a resort perhaps best known for the Mooserwirt bar and the lively apres ski options, but St Anton is no longer a one trick pony and families with children skiing over the Easter week should certainly consider this beautiful Austrian ski resort.
St Anton offers extensive skiing for all abilities; the lift pass covers the wider Arlberg Ski Circus granting you access to over 250km of piste. For beginners the gentler slopes, ideal for learning are just above the village on the way to Nasserein. Intermediates will enjoy the multitude of blues and reds in the Galzig and Gampern areas. St Anton is ideal for experts with a huge amount of on and off piste challenges. Easter can be quite warm in resort, often making the snow conditions better in the morning. There are tonnes of non-ski activities to keep the whole family occupied during the afternoons, including ice skating, tobogganing, sleigh rides, a sports centre with a climbing wall and bowling alley, and a wellness centre for swimming.
Families heading to St Anton are advised to stay in the peaceful and child-friendly Nasserein area, where the swift Nasserein gondola can be found alongside the area's own ski school meeting points, nursery slopes and amenities. Nasserein is a long way from the hubbub of the town centre so parents with children, keen to avoid the late night party-goers, can stay here comfortably. There are even family-only accommodation options here with in-house childcare for those that want it.
We have a wide choice of chalets to choose from in St Anton, from the more basic 2 star options to the total luxury 6 star ski chalets. Easter is a popular time to travel with children, but because it is late in the season, you can find some great deals. If you're travelling in a group with children, you might prefer to book exclusive use of a chalet so that your party has the run of the house.
And across St Anton, high demand from the UK market has led many different tour operators to pick up chalets here - and the upshot of this is that there's a wide range of properties to suit all budgets in St Anton, with UK flights and transfers included.
