St Anton is a picture-esque ski resort and town located in Austria, at an elevation of 1300m. It has kept its genuine charm and Tirolean hospitality, so has the authentic winter atmosphere that many groups want. Part of the Arlberg area of ski resorts, this region boasts 94 cable cars and ski lifts, 210 miles of well groomed pistes and 120 miles of deep-snow runs, all of which are covered under one flexible lift pass. So for serious skiers and snowboading stag weekends St Anton has the magic touch, but be prepared to pay the price for food and drink, which is not cheap here. Snow reliability is reliable here, so a safe bet for guys going late in the season. If the weather is coming from the west as it often is, the Arlberg region gets the best snow first. St Anton neighbouring resorts of Lech and Zürs really enjoy heavy falls, but the apres fun isn’t as good. The lower runs are perfectly equipped with snow making canons, which generally ensure quality home runs and excellent practise slopes. The big selling to ski stag holidays in Austria, is St Anton’s legendary apres atmosphere from the hours of 4 – 9pm. Cruising down the Blue number 1 from Galzig or the narrow Red 21 from Gampen you’ll find the mass of bars, which are packed in the afternoons. Our favourite picks are: Krazy Kangaruh, Taps, Griabli, Mooserwirt, Sennhütte, and Heustadl. Rumour has it that Mooserwirt bar sells more beer than any other bar in Austria and is owned by Frank Bruno. Whether you’re jumping up and down in ski boots, fist pumping to 80s classics or downing a huge beer – St Anton apres has to be savoured. Just remember though, for the die hard drinkers St Anton isn’t perfect as the nights arent that electric and St Anton ski stag do doesn’t boast strip clubs or the late night offerings of Slovenia and Bulgaria. Bring plenty of Euros as Austria is not cheap, but if budget doesn’t matter – Austria skiing offers the good times and good snow.
