... for your skiing holiday away from the rush of many other ski areas

Dear locals


We would like to inform you that from February 15, 2021 until further notice we will not be operating the St. Jakob im Defereggental and Kals am Großglockner ski areas. For more skiing fun, the Matrei Goldried ski area is available from Friday to Sunday and the Sillian Hochpustertal ski center on weekends. Stay healthy and we wish you continued nice skiing days.




St. Jakob im Defreggental is the absolute insider tip for ski vacationers. 23 kilometers of slopes and 7 lifts offer families pure skiing pleasure away from the hustle and bustle. While little speedsters practice on the slopes and young people play in the fun park, connoisseurs make long turns through the best powder snow. With the most natural snow and the longest valley runs, a top-class skiing holiday awaits in Defereggental.

Away from the onslaught of many other ski areas, the St. Jakob i. D. especially because of its manageability. Most of the slopes are very easy to drive even with children and this guarantees that the little ones can also enjoy skiing. We look forward to welcoming you back to the ski area.

Please note:

When using the ski slopes while the ski is in operation, adults and children aged 10 and over must carry a valid negative Covid test.

When riding in the cable car or on the chairlift with weather protection, an FFP2 mask from 15 years of age must be worn. The cable car and the chairlifts may only be 50% occupied. We ask you to observe the minimum distance at the checkout area and when queuing at the lifts!
