Overview

What’s the skiing like? Saalbach (or "Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunnski ski area" to use its full name) has 270km of pistes and one of the best high-speed lift-systems in the world. Its south-facing slopes are ideal for sun-seekers while the north-facing slopes hold the powder very well. The main terrain park is the huge Hinterglemm's Nightpark which has easy, medium and pro lines.

Best suited to? Intermediate skiers

Beginners have good nursery slopes in both Saalbach and Hinterglemm. Intermediates have a huge number of red and blue runs from most lifts. Confident intermediates should head to the more challenging long runs in Fieberbrunn.

Advanced skiers won't find too many black pistes, but the longest and most challenging runs with 1000m vertical can be found under the Schattberg and Zwolferkogel lifts as well as a World Cup black run. Freeriders can hike up above the Hochhörndl chair where part of the Freeride World Tour takes place and hit the hidden powder stashes.

What’s the resort like? Saalbach is an attractive village with traditional architecture and a river running through the centre. The main street is pedestrianised and both Saalbach and Hinterglemm have lively apres-ski scenes with live bands and Djs at mountain bars. There's a great choice of restaurants and bars on and off the mountain and plenty of hotels to choose from.

Off the slopes? Tobogganing, winter walking, snowshoe tours, an indoor pool in Saalbach and a large indoor ice skating rink.

Downside? Make sure your accommodation is located either in Saalbach or Hinterglemm, not inbetween the two villages which can make getting to the lifts inconvenient.

Nearest airport(s): Salzburg (90mins/85km)

Slopeside lodging is available; over 17,000 beds. An additional 200 various lodging facilities available nearby.
