St Johann in Tirol Austria is one of the most picturesque ski resort you can find. It is in a valley between the Kitzbuehler Horn and Wilder Kaiser. The medieval village with its pedestrian centre and frescoed houses will win your heart.
You will find that with 10 blue runs, five red and one black, it is suited for all skiing abilities. The modern ski lifts will reach up to 1,700 m and skiing season is from December right through to April. For people and children who like to learn skiing there is a good ski school available. The Red Ski School instructors put on a weekly show with skiing on stilts and fireworks.

Although a small village but there are popular bars, pubs with live music and games nights. You will not miss out on nightlife if you still have the energy after a day on the slopes.
St Johann has also the advantage that it is easily to reach from Munich International Airport or Salzburg. If you are looking for more luxury then the four-star Sporthotel has everything to spoil you. You find it is closed to the piste and has a pool, sauna and steam room. The breakfast has a hot and cold buffet served till 10.30 and in the evening a five-course dinner.
The ski resort is known for one of the best snow in Austria The nearby Kirchberg is famous for good runs and ski lift facilities. The weather in Austria is more stable and a snow report in Austria is always available and constantly updated on the Internet, including a snow forecast. All these facilities are provided to make sure the visitor is not disappointed.
Very recommendable is to stay in private accommodations. You will find the people very friendly and the rooms are cosy in an Austrian style and at a very reasonable price.
