St Anton, Austria
With the biggest ski area in Austria, legendary apres-ski from the Mooserwirt to Krazy Kanguruh and a completely pedestrianised town centre, St Anton has long remained a firm favourite for group ski holidays. The resort also offers activities for non-skiers such as tobogganing, ice skating and a leisure- centre equipped with three swimming pools, a bowling alley and ‘Sauna World’. It is also part of Austria’s largest interconnected ski area.
