By car: Hire cars are available from all airports. Ensure your car is equipped for winter driving and carry snow chains.

This can be purchased at the border, at petrol stations and at many "Trafik" shops.
The very centre of St. Anton is closed to traffic. Most accommodations offer parking and there are approximately 2,000 parking spaces available at locations around the resort centre including on the bypass, on the secondary school square, at the former Rendl station, at the “West” and “Mitte” car parks and on the outskirts of the resort. Parking is free after 3pm but otherwise is €7 per day.
The pedestrianized centre of St Anton means that many facilities and the ski lifts are within walking distance of many parts of the village.
