I'll be traveling from Zurich to St Anton 1st week of February to ski. Last year I skied Zermatt and found very reasonably priced lodging in early December. I am trying to find the same for my trip to St Anton, but it seems everything in St. Anton is pricey. I'm traveling by myself to ski and just want a room, $100/nt or less, but not too far out, so I can wonder around town in the evening.
Now I see there are some rooms but they are >10miles from St. Anton. I would like to take the train from Zurich right to St. Anton and hopefully a tax to my hotel w/ only a short shuttle to a ski lift. I'm only skiing 2 days, with a slight chance of skiing the afternoon of my first day. An option would be to drive from the Zurich airport, but i'll be on east coast us time, and likely would appreciate a few nods in the train. Plus I would like to avoid the hassle of driving in a foreign country/language, but that is an option. Any ideas? Anyone know the layout enough to suggest a town right down the road from St. Anton where I could get reasonable lodging, with easy access to St. Anton. Am I right in that this is an enormous area and that wherever I stay within 10 miles of St Anton I'll be skiing the interconnected mountain. Also, another option, I didn't check, maybe the train stops at something like Lech, how big is that compared to St. Anton?, any maybe the lodging is cheaper.
I'm just trying not to spend >$300 for 2nt in a room by myself!
