St. Johann Ski Schools
There are three ski schools operating in St. Johann, and another in Oberndorf, conveniently located near all the main lifts up the mountain. Most offer a wide range of skiing and snowboarding lessons, both in groups and privately, and instructors will speak a variety of languages including English and German.
Schischule Wilder Kaiser is conveniently located near the main lifts in St. Johann, with its main office near the bottom of the Harschbichl cable car and a children’s area just down the road near the Hochfeld I chairlift. In addition to the usual skiing and snowboarding instruction, the school also offers ski guiding and touring, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowbike lessons, and adaptive skiing for adults and children with disabilities. Advanced skiers can improve technique and try their hand at racing, powder skiing and moguls, in the school’s ‘Ski Academy’.
Based near the Eichenhof series of lifts, Schneesportschule Eichenhof is the most convenient ski school for visitors staying in the eastern side of St. Johann. Its large nursery area is perfect for small children, and the school offers a full day skiing including lunch and supervision in the playground during the break. The school also offers instruction in cross-country skiing for a range of abilities, including the opportunity to ski cross-country at night for those who are more advanced. Ski guiding and touring are also on offer.
Skischule St. Johann has been operating in the village for over 60 years, and is based in the centre of the ski area, by the Harschbichl cable car station. It prides itself on its large ‘Bobo-Kinderclub’ for children, near the Hochfeld I chairlift, and offers a supervised lunch at its own children’s restaurant. Older and more advanced children can also have full day lessons with a supervised lunch. In addition to group and private lessons for a range of abilities, Skischule St. Johann offers ski guiding and instruction in monoski or telemark skiing.
Schischule Oberndorf provides convenient schooling for visitors staying in Oberndorf. A new ‘Bobo-Kinderclub’ located near the Oberndorf lifts, offers the opportunity for small children to find their feet on skis. Beginners lessons only run Sunday and Monday, after which groups are divided at 9:45 – although group lessons don’t run on Fridays or Saturdays.
St. Johann Mountain Guides
