The bar is comfortable and inviting, too, opening on to a cosy lounge with low sofas. Even more relaxing is the Viva salon, where you will find a sauna, steam room, and tranquil treatment rooms for massage, body wraps and facials. Children get pampered here too, with a crèche that is big, bright and full of colour.
Bedrooms are prettily furnished with wooden bed frames and thoughtful attention to detail. They are all ensuite, roomy and many can take an extra child's bed. For families with younger children, a number of rooms are interconnecting.

St Anton Resort Info
Famous for its awesome skiing and equally awesome après ski, St Anton is mostly an experts' resort, with its serious off-piste, moguls and powder. St Anton's pistes tend to be undergraded, however, with first-class guiding and instruction the mountain can be enjoyed by most levels, apart, perhaps, from very beginners.
Although St Anton doesn't quite match the chocolate box reputation of other Austrian resorts, it does offer an exceptional range of après-ski, with bars and clubs galore. Restaurants can be a bit hit and miss, but as most of St Anton's visitors just want to get on with the party, a quick snack is all that's required. Off-snow activites are a little thin on the ground, although you can always jump on a train and explore Innsbruck which is only one hour away.

Snow Overview - Austria (snow news updated 04-Dec-2017)
As the season comes towards its end in Austria, it seems that winter will continue for a little while yet. Fresh snow has been falling across the resorts that remain open, and temperatures have been as low -5C in some places, meaning that conditions up high are excellent for the time of year.
Around the Obergurgl region, which is where the majority of our featured resorts are still operating, there has been around 5cm of new snow for Kaunertal (127/194cm), and 20cm for Obergurgl 25/120cm). Although visibility was limited on Thursday due to the continuing snow and cloud, once the current front moves over skiers are likely to find a nice mixture of packed powder on piste and great areas of untouched snow off to the side.
Elsewhere, Kitzbuhel (0/70cm) in the Skiwelt was still running 4/57 lifts on Thursday, and received 6cm of new snow overnight. However, whilst conditions up high continue to improve, the lower runs to resort remain closed.
Over the remainder of Thursday and into Friday more snow is forecast, and Hintertux (70/235cm) could receive 85cm. The weather is then expected to change on Saturday as a band of high pressure starts to creep in.
European Weather Outlook
Across the central European Alps, snow and cold temperatures are forecast to stick around until Saturday. Accumulations of snow on the upper slopes could be huge for the time of year, with some Swiss resorts predicting around 80cm over the course of today and Friday. By the weekend the snow is predicted to subside in many regions and a mixture of sun and cloud is expected for much of Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland.
In the Pyrenees, Saturday should be the pick of the day for any skiing in Andorra. Our featured resorts are now closed for the season, but for anyone strapping on their skins, you can expect a mixture of sun and cloud, with temperatures around +3C
In Germany, 44cm of fresh snow is being forecast for Garmisch (0/380cm), who will be in disbelief at the moment for all the snow they have received of late.
Further north you can expect temperatures of around -3C and snow showers in Norway, which are set to continue right through to Sunday for resorts such Trysil. Across the border in Sweden, the weather should be fairly similar, but any snow that does fall is likely to be light and bring only 1-2cm.
Despite some recent biting temperatures and cold winds in the UK, any snow that does fall on the Scottish mountains is most likely to be on Thursday. Thereafter, rain could destroy any hopes of some late season turns.
