St. Johann ski resort

Ski resort closed

Open lifts 3/9

Just a snowball’s throw from the legendary Kitzbühel, the St. Johann ski resort is perfect for families. The varied skiable terrain and a terrain park with jumps and rails offer plenty to explore for skiers and snowboarders of all ages. There are also 18 huts and lodges dotted across the mountain serving hearty local food.

Well known for reliable snowfall and consistently good snow conditions, the tiny St. Johann ski resort offers a small-scale yet friendly day on the slopes. Situated on the northern slopes of Kitzbühel Horn peak, the varied terrain of wide-open blue and red trails makes it a family favourite. One of its highlights for expert skiers is a 3.5-kilometre-long black trail that drops down 1,000 metres and serves up beautiful views. The highest elevation in the resort is Harschbichl at an elevation of 1,600 metres above sea level and can be accessed using three different lifts. Running parallel to Lower Harschbichlbahn gondola is the Fun Slope, a piste with lots of 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 beloved mascot named “Yappy Yapadu” is the ideal way to ensure the kids become lifelong powder lovers – and he’s always ready for a hug.
