The sun stays up a little longer in April, so skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the relaxing "Firnwochen - Spring Snow Weeks" in St Anton am Arlberg.

A spring ski day in St Anton am Arlberg could not be more relaxing: gliding over the spring snow slopes in the morning and enjoying the mountain panorama from a deck chair on one of the numerous sun terraces in the afternoon, followed by shopping and an enjoyable spa programme. St Anton am Arlberg celebrates the start of Spring with sport and social highlights right until the end of April 27.

St Anton's Spring Festival Week from 18 to 25 April includes discounted Schneekristall lift ticket tariffs and special package deals as the best skiers in Austria demonstrate their ability at the "Intersport Spring Festival" from 21 to 25 April at the Austrian Ski Instructor and Demo Championships.

Whether it's the Big Air Contest for skiers and snowboarders, a freeride competition, a giant slalom run or the Demo Championships, the performances of the professionals is a true feast for the eyes. Particularly popular at this time is the Chill-out on Rendl Beach - an enormous "living room" that provides a real lounge atmosphere in the middle of the snow.

The ski season ends in St Anton am Arlberg on 26 April and ends one week later in St Christoph 3 May. The last days of the season fall within the Snow Crystal Week. During this time the lift pass costs 25 percent less than the already inexpensive low-season rates and many hotels and pensions also offer drastically reduced special deals.
