Just a snowball’s throw from the legendary Kitzbühel, the SkiStar St. Johann Ski Resort makes for amazing family vacations. The varied skiable terrain, a terrain park, and cozy on-mountain lodges assure that any type of skier and rider will have a truly enjoyable experience. Little ones can ski with SkiStar St. Johann’s beloved mascot, “Valle” the living snowman.
Well known for reliable snowfall and consistently good snow conditions, the tiny SkiStar St. Johann Ski Resort offers a small-scale yet friendly day on the slopes. Situated on the northern slope of Kitzbühel Horn Peak, the varied terrain of wide-open blue and red trails makes it a family favorite. One of its highlights for expert skiers is a 3.5-kilometer long black trail that drops down 1,000 meters and serves up beautiful views. The highest elevation in the resort is Harschbichl at an elevation of 1,600 meters above sea level and can be accessed using three different lifts. Running parallel to Lower Harschbichlbahn Gondola, the Fun Slope is an extremist's dream with kickers, banked run and turns. With wide, gentle trails and free practice lifts, there’s plenty of room for kiddies and new skiers to get things off to the right start at a relaxed pace. The ski school’s kiddie beloved mascot named “Valle” is the ideal way to ensure the kids become lifelong powder lovers—and he’s always ready for a hug.
