Ski St. Johann by Train

196 km of piste between 650-2000m

Part of the huge Salzburger Sportwelt circuit linking three valleys and taking in the runs above Flachau, Wagrain and Alpendorf, this resort provides access to plenty of pleasant runs although not much to set the pulse racing for experts. St. Johann itself is a pretty town with an impressive cathedral and a lovely setting which has a very small ski area, but the chances are you will want to take the ski bus and head off to Alpendorf 3km away where you can access the main circuit.

Ski St. Johann by train

There are direct trains from Salzburg which generally get you to St Johann im Pongau station in less than an hour. The free ski bus, L1, stops at the station every few minutes and takes you to Alpendorf in only 10 minutes.

Getting to St. Johann by Train

The best destination to access the downhill slopes by public transport in this ski area is Zweisimmen. Station adjacent to Gondola (left out of station). Note that the lift pass is good for all lifts in Gstaad Mountain Rides and on all local buses and the railway as far as Rossinière. Stations at Saanenmöser, Schönried, Saanen, Rougement and Château-d'Oex are all a few minutes walk from valley stations.
