St. Anton has a reputation for being more about partying than skiing but one cannot forget that the Austrian resort offers some epic off-piste riding. If you can fight off your hangover then it’s worth getting up early to beat the crowds and enjoy the powder when it’s at its best.

If you’ve got a guide then head to the top of Valuga and explore at your leisure, if not than you’ll have to make do with the area around Rendl – a popular haunt of with the Austrian locals. Watch out for the plentiful rocks and enjoy racing through the trees. A little bit further afield is the village of Lech am Arlberg which offers plentiful off-piste opportunities and will be quieter than the usual St. Anton fare. It’s definitely worth a day of your trip.
