St. Johann in Tirol is a classic Tyrolean market town with 8,500 inhabitants and a fine, friendly medieval town centre. Even though the village is only at 670 metres above sea level, it is ensured good snow conditions, owing to the fact that the snow line drops in height the further east you are in the Alps.
The ski area boasts a total of 43-km wide, well prepared slopes that run from the top right down into the valley, framed by a beautiful panoramic view of Tyrol. Its easy beginners slopes at a range of altitudes and red (intermediate) runs make it a favourite among families with children.
One of the main highlights is the FIS race piste rated black (expert) descending 1,000 vertical metres in just 3.5 kilometres. The highest point in the resort is on the Harschbichl at 1,604 metres above sea level and can be reached using three different cable cars. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers can explore the obstacles and jumps on the funslope near the Harschbichlbahn cable car, while children and beginners will find a number of easy pratice lifts that can be used free of charge.
