Fun in the snow for families
In the winter months, the St. Johann mountain lifts whisk skiers and riders up to 1604 meters above sea level, where a great choice of ski trails and top-to-bottom runs are available – plus uninterrupted panoramic views of the Baroque village center and the snow-covered Wilder Kaiser mountain range. Thanks to many easy to intermediate pistes the St. Johann ski area is perfectly suitable for families and children. Action-packed moments await off-piste skiers also at the snow park. Night skiing on the floodlit ski slopes also ranks among the undisputed highlights.
Nordic skiing fans can choose from a huge cross-country skiing network and cleared winter walking trails leading to the region's most secluded spots. A perfect way to explore Tirol's authentic nature landscapes! Fun-filled toboggan adventures on the 2 km long natural track or romantic horse carriage rides promise loads of unforgettable moments. And after an exciting day in the snow, rest and relaxation are on the program: visit the Panorama Badewelt swimming center with sauna and wellness parlor.
