St Anton Backcountry

  • Austrian qualified Skifuhrer
  • Working with the Alberg Ski School St Anton

I am a full time instructor/guide with the Arlberg skischule in St Anton, my home in the winter.

Why St Anton?  Quite simply it’s the best off-piste ski area around and to top it off you’ve got the village of St Anton; apres ski, shopping and restaurants galore. Austria is skiing. It’s the whole thing both on and off the slopes. The Austrians believe that a skiing holiday is a complete experience from the moment you arrive in the resort to the moment you leave. Austria is built on tourism.

The Backcountry Course is a great product. Half off-piste instruction and half guiding. If there’s great snow to be found you can rest assured we’ll know where to find it.

Hopefully I’ll see you on the slopes.
