Profile

Pettneu is a village a few kilometres further down the valley from St Anton which offers a more affordable base and a few beginners runs, and is good for self sufficient skiers and snowboarders with their own transport. Zurs is only a short bus trip round the valley from St Anton and at 1720m has a good snow keeping record. It is a small quiet exclusive village with many 3,4 and 5 star hotels where the hideaway luxury is less ostentacious. Known for its royal patronage the skiing is fairly undemanding and the lift systems not the most up to date.
