Saalbach/Hinterglemm (Skicircus)

Ski resorts in Austria
Saalbach-Hinterglemm are two villages that form a joint ski area located in the eastern outskirts of the Alps. As a tourist resort in the Alps, they are relatively young. It was not until after World War II that tourists started to show up in what was previously a poor farmers community. Today, it's a completely different show, a modern and extensive lift system attracts over one million skiers per season. The extensive lift system also means that there is plenty of skiing in many different directions, so there is no excuse not to take advantage of the nice weather! The resort has a full focus on its skiing visitors which is pretty obvious considering that the main street is free of traffic and pedestrians have free passage.

Nowadays, these two villages are also linked to the renowned Fieberbrunn ski resort. Fieberbrunn complements Saalbach-Hinterglemm's extensive protected forest area with plenty of possibilities for high-alpine skiing, and also gives all the daredevils out there access to the north side of the mountain Wildseeloder, which is one of the more frequent stops in the Freeride World Tour.

OK. Smånätt. 1000m drop height. Lots of people on the slopes but no lift queues due to incredibly modern lifts.
 Needless cabins. A Hütte with goulash soup, tiroler grstl, kaiserschmarrn etc. are behind each crown. No matter which one you choose. Slightly tired atmosphere on après-ski "Pensioner's rave" Certainly livelier during high season

Good opportunities for easy off-piste from the lifts. In Fieberbrunn there are wildseeloads with surrounding areas that are a little more challenging. Limited with tour opportunities.

Saalbach is a real classic, been there type 6-7 times. The system is large and you can enjoy several days of going through it. For those who want to pull off the piste, there are also plenty of good yokes!

You live with advantage in Saalbach village or in Hinterglemm, it takes about 5 minutes by bus (included in lift pass) or taxi.

In the evenings I strongly recommend looking into the Scandinavian bar "Underbar" which is located in Saalbach village, when they close the gates there are several places to move on to if you so wish.

When you look around in Saalbach there are many happy middle-aged / small Germans, but if you have Wonderful as a starting point in the evening you will definitely have fun. For apres ski you should check out at Hinterhag, make sure you arrive in reasonable time if you want a sensible place to hang on.

Highly recommended!

Me and my partner took 4 months leave and went to fieberbrunn. We rented an apartment in the village on the south side overlooking the wildseeloder and kitbühlerhorn, absolutely amazing.
We did not season so much when the rides, saalbach, hinterglemm, leogang and fieberbrunn offer you everything you could wish for. Wide slopes that are incredibly well groomed and modern. Good with snow and many fertilized offpiste opportunities, these go to a large extent to reach directly from the lift. Very nice people and many good cabins / resturants. (s4 alm, fieberbrunn and Rosswaldhütte, hinterglemm toptip)
Take a look at kogler sports that is adjacent to the fieberbrunn bergbahnen, good people's cruel range and world-class service.
Geographically it is nice, 40 min to Kitzsteinhorn 1h 10 min to Stubai and 2h 20min to Sölden. Highly recommended.

One week in Saalbach Hinterglemm, including racing in Leogang and Fierberbrunn was one of the highlights last year! Great area to go on, which made it not so crowded despite many happy skiers and snowboarders. Lovely people and atmosphere. Have not you been there, go!

Many go to Saalbach for its famous after ski, which you can understand. From around 15 o'clock (even earlier in some places), the rest of the music is heard far away. It attracts a certain audience who (according to prejudice) appreciates well-prepared slopes and fast lifts, as the ski resort has understood. The system is easily gigantic, there are plenty of long slopes to carve in, many modern lifts with short queues and plenty of little cabins when it's time to rest your legs. This also creates great opportunities for us who like to look outside the system; very unspoilt cushions are easily reached and can be untouched well after the snowfall. The offpiste is not superficial but there are some nice fields and good woodland skiing.

The owners of the lifting systems in Saalbach-Hinterglemm are crazy. They pluck down incredible money on their lifts and snowmobile systems. In practice, it means a lift system with a capacity that I have not seen anywhere else in the world. The slopes are well prepared and varied. Overall not great, but perfect slopes to carve around in.
There are good opportunities for offpiste and are you prepared to move a little bit in the terrain with studs, it's enough for a long time when the competition for the fist is not gigantic.
The system consists of the four resorts Saalbach, Hinterglemm, Leogang and Fieberbrunn. Everything is together and you do not have to go a meter ski bus to reach all parts. The next city to connect is Zell am See, but that connection is not yet ready, although you can go from Zell down to Viehhofen and quickly connect to Saalbach. Worker to get back though, but there are buses ..

By the way, it's good hanging, food and party.

My favorite in the Alps.
Have tried about 10 ski resorts to the Alps, but nobody strikes Saalbach, the ski resort that has everything. Powder skiing, all-weather skiing, and amazing food and beer places. Is there week 8 every year and basically never queks for lifts. The system is now assembled with fieberbrunn with its off-piste rides. Day trips from the city of Saalbach will be fun and a bit of an adventure as you get to know one of the different places you can choose.

Had a great week in Saalbach v.1. Much snow and cruel slopes - wide and beautiful slope; carvingvänligt. There were also surprisingly many offpiste opportunities to be in a system that is not very high. Must recommend the red piste under the Bernkogelbahn - hang on the lock when the elevator opens, being the first in that hill is divine.

In addition to the awesome skiing, unbelievably much of the awesome afterskin (ranked as the best in Europe) enjoyed Hinterhag Alm as the best place. Nice city and very nice people! Highly recommended for all types of riders.

In order to find something negative (for maybe one must?) Then it's the height and maybe some transport distance too much.
