St Johann in Tirol Ski Holidays, Austria

“Traditional resort town, rustic mountain huts, great all-rounder”

St Johann in Tirol is a popular and picturesque, traditional Tyrolean market town located between the Kitzbüheler Horn and the impressive Wilder Kaiser mountains in the heart of the Kitzbuheler Alps region. With a modestly sized ski area, St Johann is best suited to beginners and intermediates and boasts some wonderful mountain huts with stunning views. Salzburg and Innsbruck Airports are both around one hour’s transfer making this a great choice for a flexible short ski break and St Johann is also a great base from which to explore nearby Kitzbühel, the Ski Welt and Ski Circus via Fieberbrunn.

On the Mountain 

St Johann in Tirol’s ski area sits on the snowy, north-facing side of the Kitzbüheler Horn with just under 50 kilometres of piste and 17 lifts accessing predominantly tree-lined and wide, scenic blues and reds. It is ideal for social intermediates and for learning to ski or snowboard and also serves as a great hub from which to explore neighbouring resorts on a Ski Safari.

There’s a feature-packed snow park, a long black descent to Oberndorf and powder fields to explore as well as 18 cosy and rustic charming mountain huts in which to recharge and experience Austria’s hospitality.

For more piste mileage, day trip to Kitzbühel, upgrade to the 3-Laender Freizeit Arena pass or the SuperSkiCard (2,780 km of piste).

Off the Mountain 

Max’s Pub at the foot of the slopes (and Rock Bar over in Eichenhof) attract the bulk of the après-ski crowd and there are plenty of other bars in town to explore later on. Nearby Kitzbühel offers a bigger and better choice of nightlife and is just over 10 minutes by train or taxi.

St. Johann in Tirol’s pedestrianised centre is typically Tyrolean with an ornate church, cobbled square, frescoed buildings and a friendly atmosphere. There are plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars on offer and eating out is excellent value.

The resort also has a Recreation Centre with indoor pool, sauna and solarium, massage, gym and tennis courts, a floodlit toboggan run and ice-skating.
