Ski Schools in St. Anton

Learn to ski in St. Anton

Located at an altitude of 1300m in Austria’s Arlberg region, St. Anton is one of the top five resorts in the Alps. The resort is part of the extensive Ski Arlberg ski region, which is the largest interconnected skiing area in Austria and extends over Vorarlberg and Tyrol. Ski Arlberg consists of two parts, Arlberg East and Arlberg West, and offers more than 300km of slopes, plus 200km of deep snow terrain.

Located just over an hour from Innsbruck, 2hrs drive from Zurich and 2,5hrs drive from Munich, St. Anton is full of life and Austrian charm. It is also the birthplace of Hannes Schneider, who developed the Arlberg Technique - the basics of ski instruction that are still used for teaching alpine skiing to this day.

Hannes Schneider was also the founder of the Kandahar ski club, which established the first races on the world-famous Kandahar black run within the resort, with its gradients of up to 92%.

From the resort, there is easy access to the five surrounding mountains; the Rendl, Galzig , Kapall, Valluga and Gampen, each offering diverse slopes at all levels. With such a wealth of pistes available, ski schools in St. Anton offer an extensive variety of lessons, not only in skiing and snowboarding, but also freeriding, snow-touring and even heliski tours.

Ski lessons for beginners in St. Anton

With 43% or 140km of slopes being graded as easy, the entire Ski Arlberg ski resort is very suitable for beginners. Ski schools in St. Anton offer lessons for skiers aged 5yrs and upwards, lessons lasting for 4hrs. First-timer lessons take place on the village nursery slopes, either directly in St. Anton or in nearby Nasserein, which are flat and ideal for learning the first moves.

Once the basics have been established, ski novices progress onto the blue slopes within the resort. The ski schools in St. Anton head for the conveniently-situated blues either in the Galzig or Fangbahn areas, or around the Rendl 2030, which also has a beginners’ lift.

Beginners wanting some practice after lessons should consider the blue route no.27, which starts up at the Gampen 1850 restaurant and meanders back down into St. Anton.

Kids' ski lessons in St. Anton

Kids’ ski lessons are offered from age 5yrs and upwards in St. Anton. As with all beginners, the first moves are learned on the very flat slopes around St. Anton and nearby Nasserein. Ski schools in St. Anton take their youngest beginners to establish the first basics of skiing at the Kinderpark, situated between St. Anton and Nasserein.

The next step for young ski learners is to practice simple turns on some of the lower-lying and easier blue runs within the resort. There are three areas nearby that have ideal blues, the favourites for the ski schools in St. Anton being the Galzig and Fangbahn areas to the right of St. Anton, and Rendl 2030, to the left.

Intermediate skiers will also find their space on the quiet red runs around the Rendl area, such as the lengthy R1, which starts at the Rendl restaurant and makes a huge curve back down into St. Anton.

What makes learning to ski in St. Anton so special

There’s always something big happening in St. Anton: November sees the new giant slalom race "Catch me if you can; the night of long turns", where 222 skiers equipped with head torches race down the legendary Kandahar Slope and into the valley.

“The Snow must go on” in December is a must-see event in which 150 skiing performers put on a spectacular show covering the history of skiing.

The counterpart to the “Catch me if you can“ race at the start of the season is the season’s finale; a cult ski race “Der Weiße Rausch - The White Thrill“, where 555 international skiers, snowboarders or telemark skiers hurtle down 9km of unprepared slopes to the finishing point in the valley.


How do we find a suitable activity?

In every ski resort you will find an overview of all available offers. On the left side you have filters to quickly find the right offer. For example, you can search specifically for beginner ski courses for children in groups.

How do we find offers for our desired date?

Under the menu item "Select course date" in the upper left corner of the page you can select a desired start date. At the top of the search results you will find the offers for the desired start date. Below follow offers in a similar period.

How do we find group lessons or private instructors?

Group courses are marked with "Group". You can search specifically for group courses by selecting the "Group" filter under the "Category" menu item. Private teachers are marked with the inscription "Private". You can search for private teachers by selecting the "Private" filter under the "Category" menu item.

How do we find offers in our language?

Under the menu item "Language" you can select a desired language. Afterwards only offers will be shown where this language is available.

When should we book?

During the holiday weeks, ski and snowboard courses are usually fully booked. In order to make sure that there is still a place available in the desired ski or snowboard course, the motto is: the sooner the better.

How do we find our appropriate experience level?

Next to the menu item "Experience level" you will find a description of the individual experience levels. If you're still not sure, you don't need to worry. Simply choose the experience level that best suits your abilities. Before the first lesson of a group course, ski schools will assess your abilities so that you can be placed in the right group. In any case, private instructors will take your abilities into account on an individual basis.

How do we find offers including equipment?

All offers including equipment are marked with the inscription "Ski rental included". If you find the inscription "Ski rental optional" you can book the equipment for this offer. You will find offers including equipment faster if you select the filter "Ski rental including" under the menu item "Popular options". Depending on the provider, an offer including equipment contains: skis, ski poles, ski boots and helmet. You will find a detailed list of the included rental items in the respective offer description.

There is no offer including equipment, where can we alternatively rent equipment?

In a ski resort there is almost without exception the possibility to rent winter sports equipment. If you book via CheckYeti, you will receive discounts from our partner Skiset, where you can conveniently reserve your equipment online.

How many participants are usually in a group?

This depends on the ski school. Some ski schools have a maximum number of participants per group. You can find this information in the descriptions of the offers.

At what age can children ski or snowboard?

There is no fixed age limit here. Supported by specially trained children's ski instructors, children can already learn to ski playfully at kindergarten age. Depending on the children's level of motoric and social development, the ideal starting age is between 4 and 5 years. Occasionally there are children who can already learn to ski at the age of 3 1/2 years.

How many days should the lessons last for our children?

During the holiday weeks, children's ski courses for beginners usually start on Sunday or Monday. The program is designed in such a way that the best learning results are achieved when your children take part in the ski course throughout the week. So they don't miss the final event (race, etc.) and experience a great week with their group. For advanced children the learning success usually kicks in on the third day.

Is it better to put our child in a group lesson or a private tuition?

The group lessons are generally recommended for beginners. Learning together with peers is more fun. The children are not constantly in the focus and have the possibility to catch their breath between the individual exercises, while the other children are on it. In order not to underchallenge highly talented children, a private ski instructor is recommended.

Can we join our child with a private instructor?

Yes, that's possible. Some providers even offer special family offers. Otherwise, you can simply book a private instructor for children or adults and inform the ski school after booking that you would like to go together.
