Our bonus tip for St Anton
Be aware that the area, west of the pedestrian area and west of the Galzig lift, is a steep mountain so if you will book a hotel, let say, 400 meters from the lift in that direction, it is all an uphill battle especially if you go back tired after a night of clubbing. also going down with your equipment can be tricky and dangerous on the icy street.
Of course, there are ski buses and night buses but you don’t want to depend on these.
If you will stay in that area, we strongly recommend that you to leave your gear in lockers near the Galzig bahn.
