Ski safari • St. Johann in Tirol region

Conquer the "Big 5" in the snow!

Ski safari - St. Johann in Tirol region
The St. Johann in Tirol region is the gateway to lots of fantastic ski areas! The traditional ski destination in the Kitzbühel Alps scores points like no other winter sports hub thanks to the variety it offers. From a small family ski area to mega piste fun, it's all here. Head on a ski safari in the Kitzbühel Alps!

Experience the "Big 5" in the Kitzbühel Alps region!
The "Big 5" are not elephants and the like, rather, they are the world-renowned winter sports hubs, including Kitzbühel, Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn and SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser. "Home base" and starting point is St. Johann, whose local ski mountain on the Kitzbüheler Horn also provides plenty of variety.

This hunting ground spans 2750 kilometres of pistes!
And of course those for whom that is just not enough, can also give being a big Alpine game hunter a go too. The hunting area comprises some 2750 kilometres of pistes in 25 ski areas. Along with the Big 5 there are also other ski stations in Salzburg, Upper Austria, Carinthia and Styria. The Mega Ski pass - the Kitzbühel Alps Super Ski Card - makes this possible; the second biggest ski pass association in the world, which has been revealed in XXL format this winter for the first time and is also part of the three glacier ski areas. This new ski pass, which makes 180 days of skiing possible within its core area, is available as a season ticket, as an optional ski ticket (ten days in all areas) and as a multi day ticket.

In the St. Johann region you will go from skier to big game hunter!
The ski safari is available as a ready-prepared winter sports package. From 550 Euro you get to enjoy the Big 5 to your heart’s content over six days, with seven overnight stays. In your own car, by train or in the ski bus, individual winter sports hubs are also within reach in just a few minutes.
