St Anton is only an hour from Innsbruck, has its own station and, with the 'Arlberg Ski' pass, you can ski at Lech, Zurs and St Christoph as well. Because it is so well-known, there can be crowds and high prices. The other side of St Anton's allure is the town itself. Not necessarily the prettiest of Austrian resorts, St Anton nonetheless offers a superb range of après-ski, with bars and clubs galore. Eating out is variable, but as most ski holiday makers just want to get on with partying a quick bite suffices.
For non-skiers, there isn't a great amount to do, beyond strolling around the pedestrianised centre, with its shops and cafés. However you can always jump on a train and explore Innsbruck. Overall, St Anton is one of the real 'big boys', with tough skiing and loads of hectic nightlife.
