Ski slopes in St Johann is for all types of skiers.
The Austrian ski resort, St. Johann in Tirol is an excellent place for all types of skiers, even for beginners like me! It is a good resort for expert skiers and excellent for intermediate skiers. The Ski slopes of St Johann are also very popular for snowboarding. Cross country skiers love St Johann because of the extensive trails. It extends into a network of over 275 kms.
What facilities does the Ski slopes in St Johann offer?
The resort forms part of the Schneewinkl Ski Area and has direct access to 60 km of downhill skiing, 19 individual pistes and 17 ski lifts. The ski lift can transport more than 20,000 people per hour, including snowboarders.
With the appropriate ski lift pass you will also be able to ski and snowboard in other Schneewinkl ski resorts example Kirchdorf, Waidring and Fieberbrunn-Pillersee Tal. We went skiing the one day in Kirchdorf when there was not enough snow in St. Johann.
Speaking about not enough snow! The resort does have the facility to make snow. They have 284 snow cannons!!!
