For over ten years now, the St. Johann in Salzburg Tourist Association, Snow Space Salzburg and the municipality of St. Johann have been working together with the SOS Children's Village in Seekirchen to organise two fun-filled ski days during the Christmas holidays. This charity event is also supported by the Alpendorf Ski School and retired provincial president Simon Illmer and his wife Evi. At the beginning of the ski day there is always the "dreaded" group allocation. Each participant has to demonstrate how good they are at skiing. Basically, however, the children all ski very well, as they are often on skis. After the groups have been allocated, a meet-up at one of the many huts is arranged. It is important to remember that the restaurants can be reached by all participants (whether they’re good or not so good skiers). Of course, depending on the size of the group, staff from the Children's Village are also on hand.
