Even though the end of the ski season is approaching, there is still time to squeeze in an extra skiing break, particularly if it’s in the vibrant, snow-sure resort of St Anton in Austria. Ideal for shorter breaks because of the quick transfer times (75 minutes’ drive from Innsbruck airport, and just over two hours by car from Zurich), enjoy the varied terrain, ideal for all types of mountain lover –especially competent skiers.
Make the most of the 97 ski lifts and discover the 129 km of slopes available during the day – plus the powder bowls below the summit of Valluga, if you’re feeling brave – before relaxing in the luxurious Chalet Seeberger, a chalet-style hotel, in the evening.
As one of the oldest – and most attractive – buildings in St Anton, the chalet combines tradition, style and comfort, right in the centre of this lively, car-free ski resort. Each bedroom boasts en-suite facilities, a cable television and a fully-stocked mini bar; the open-plan living and dining room – overlooking St Anton’s pedestrianised centre – is the ideal place to enjoy some delicious canapés, and the wide terrace located on the top floor creates the perfect spot to sunbathe after an adventurous day on the mountains.
A four-night Sunday to Wednesday stay at Chalet Seeberger (sleeps 24 in total but rooms can be booked individually), commencing Sunday 15 March, costs from £399 per person, including accommodation on a chalet-board basis* and a complimentary driver service to and from the slopes. (Alternatively, a three night stay, commencing Thursday 19 March and returning Sunday 22 March, costs from £499 per person.)
A choice of other chalets is also available.
*Chalet-board basis includes a champagne reception on arrival, daily breakfast, afternoon tea, canapés and pre-dinner drinks plus a four-course dinner with cheese and port, followed by coffee and chocolates, with carefully-selected wines served throughout.
Flights/transfers extra and can be booked through Supertravel Ski, from £249 per person.
