St. Jakob ski centre in Defereggen valley

A combination of things you ought not to miss out on - family, wellness and perfect pistes!
We want to be honest - Defereggen valley is a little bit “away” from it all. But not away in a geographic sense. Rather, it is far removed from what is standard and conventional. Anyone who comes here is not looking for mass tourism, or big parties. Anyone who comes here will find something quite different, more precious - perfect pistes, plenty of sun and family-friendly ski runs too. The ski area of St. Jakob in the Defereggen valley is not as big as the main ski areas, but it is manageable. There is almost nowhere else that you can enjoy more relaxed and better skiing than here. And Defereggen valley also offers some tasty treats, in all respects. On the one hand there is a really superb “Funpark”, where snowboarders feel as though they are in heaven. On the other, your search for culinary and traditional tasty treats will be quickly rewarded with success. The top places to stay in Defereggen valley are genuinely “temples” of sophisticated East Tyrolean cuisine. There is also more than a hint of wellness, which wafts over everything. In short, a stay in Defereggen valley is real pleasure for body and soul.
