St. Anton is a small village in western Austria. Though it holds a population of less than 3,000 people, it remains one of the most popular ski resorts in Austria. St. Anton sits 1,300 meters above sea level, though the ski slopes rise to nearly 3,000 meters. St. Anton has hosted professional ski competition and is one of the most popular resorts during both the winter and summer.
St. Anton is situated along the Rosanna river, and is a member of the Arlberg ski alliance. The alliance ski region includes nearly 100 cable cars and ski lifts, and more than 260 kilometers of manicured trails. The downtown area is reserved for pedestrian traffic, and vehicles are excluded. There are expert ski trails that lead into and out of town, and the expert terrain trails are less well-kept. It is for this reason that St. Anton is so popular. The vast mixture of amateur and professional-level trails make for a very diverse ski experience.
The area is easily reached by rail or car, and many tourists find that using car hire services from a larger neighboring city or driving in from Vienna or Salzburg is the most efficient means of getting there. Thanks to the excellent roads in the area which are kept mostly clear during the winter, year-round access is possible. Using a hired car means that tourists can take their time and explore the surrounding countryside during their free time.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
