Greetings from the Alps! My name is Tracy, I'm Irish and have been living in Austria for over 10-years. I told my parents I will only do 1 season but the love of the Austrian Mountains has kept me here. Skiing, hiking, and snow shoe walking are a few of my favourite things to do in my home town - St. Johann in Tirol. The spectacular scenery never ceases to amaze me here. I look forward to meeting you in person and urge you to come to me with any questions or queries. I am happy to test my knowledge of the area over a coffee or beer. See you soon, and happy packing!
Hi, My name is Susan and I am originally from Yorkshire. Austria is now my home and I have had the great privilege of living in the mountains for the last 15 years. Austria is a beautiful country, with an amazing culture and there is nothing more special than a winter ski resort. I am so happy to be working for Topflight as Resort Manager for St Johann in Tirol. I look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful resort and am here to make sure you have the best time, both on and off the slopes
