Skiing in St Johann in Tirol
St Johann's skiing can be accessed from five different points, but all are on the outskirts of the town so unless you happen to stay in accommodation nearby, you're likely to have to face a walk or need to take the ski bus in the morning. At one end of town at Eichenhof a long drag (number 13) links to the top of the mountain but there's also a relatively quiet nursery area. The second access point is at Übungslift Baumoos not far from the rail station which again has a nursery slope. The Hauptkassa at the base of the gondola is the main access point and the fastest way straight to the top, it is located about 700 metres from the village centre. Chairs 3 and 4 in succession serve intermediate and easy terrain. Finally by driving over to Oberndorf you can take the fifth route by gondola.
Beginners will find wide open and well prepared nursery slopes at the base of the mountain with more runs to progress to all over the ski area. Intermediates will probably enjoy St Johann the most with interesting and varied terrain at their standard here and at many of the neighbouring resorts on one of the multi-area passes available. From the top of the ski lifts at Harschbichl there's a good choice of 4 - 5km (3 mile) reds and blues back down to the village. The long Lacknerabfahrt run down from Jodlalm is especially highly thought of. Most of the terrain is cut through forest but there are powder fields and plenty of off piste opportunities which a guide can show you.
The one black Penzing run down to Oberndorf is regarded as being worthy of a special visit for many expert skiers that are in the area. Now protected by snow making it's long, steep and full of bumps. Advanced skiers can also use St Johann as a base and then visit other areas with more good skiing for their ability level that are included on the pass, these include Fieberbrunn on the Schneewinkel Pass and many more on the larger Kitzbüheler Alpen ticket, including, of course, Kitzbühel itself. It's also worth noting that St Johann's ski area is dotted with more than a dozen cozy mountain huts serving meals and drinks throughout the day.
St Johann is also a mecca for cross country skiers with extensive trails extending in to a wider network of over 275km (170 miles).
Snowboarding in St Johann in Tirol
St Johann's varied terrain, lively nightlife and terrain park all combine to make it one of the major 'boarding spots in the area. The natural terrain features off the forested trails and powder fields have a lot of mileage in them, and access to the top of the slopes by gondola or chair is easy. The pass coverage of more than two dozen other ski areas nearby perhaps also contributes to the success of St Johann as a home of some of the world's best known 'boarders in recent seasons. All four ski schools offer snowboarding tuition and the terrain park incorporates a 60 metre half pipe. A new ski and snowboarding park woodside: Ski run 7A Tauwiese Oberndorf: contains quaterpipes, tables, boxes, slides, rails, jumps and kickers, overall park length of 500 meters.
