Holds everything promised by a ski resort in Austria!
Was there week 6 2009, a lot of snow, but unfortunately no new snow.

Positively:

* Large selection of slopes in all colors
* Many nice taverns in the slopes (tips: Die Alte Smiede in Leogang, think it's the nicest restaurant I've been to in Austria sometime)
* Great nightlife, lots of people, full island!
* Family friendly.
* Nice staff everywhere.

negative:

* Relatively low ride height throughout the entire system.
* Offpist seems to be very easy to access, guessing that it's getting really fast after a snowfall (This is just a guess!).
* Expensive!
* The cities of Hinterglem and Saalbach feel a bit "Disney", definitely a tourist machine.

Should be perfect for those who spend a week in the Alps per year, who think that the party is as important as skiing. Families will have fun here because there are good opportunities for everyone to go together, as well as a wide range of ski schools for girls (especially in Hinterglem).

Above all, a nice place, please come back.

Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang is a completely ok compromise. I've been there three times in fifteen years and the snowfall has varied greatly, yet you've managed to keep the groundwork really good.

Were in Saalbach last time in 2007 and then there were many Birmingham residents in Hinterglemm so it was only a few hours to drive in Hinterglemm.

The system in Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang has a great advantage in avoiding buses which are always very sad.

There are actually some offpist scratches that are okay if you find them, but not in the winter.

In addition to really nice skiing there are many good restaurants on the slopes with nice people to speak with. Feels right genuinely in many ways.

I have been to Salbach 5 years in a row now (2002-2007). Yes, it's so good. V 7 2006 how wonderful. 2 m of snow and sunshine all week.

Saalbach is a large modern area. The area hats for example 10th gondolas. There are long slopes in all levels of difficulty. In Saalbach there are slopes on both sides of the valley, so you can go for a lap so you never have to go to the same place for a whole day. The smartest way to go is to start sunbathing in the morning and then in the afternoon go on the shadow side where the sun begins to appear now. Then the wet snow avoids them easily on the sun side in the afternoons. Liftköer occurs on some lifts. I think most about Bernkogel 1 3's sesselbahn. Otherwise, there are not many queues.

2007 was not really a heightened year of snow in the Alps, but almost all of the slopes were open v7 yet thanks to Saalbach's huge snowman system. But for the mildest days we went to Kaprun and went on the glacier. You can purchase a ski pass that applies to a lot of ski resorts in the area including Zell am See, Kaprun, Gastein and more.

I do not think that you should judge Saalbach just because it was sorrow on the hill after lunch in 2007 - it was everywhere in Europe. A terribly bad snowy year but it's going well? when I was in Saalbach / Hinterglemm in 2005 it was wonderful. I really can not complain about my stay there. We had no problems, md liftköer what I remember, maybe it happened that you were standing in line for 10 minutes occasionally, but it's almost everywhere. If you were out in good time in the morning you could virtually slide down the backlog. Aftershine is world-class, especially at Hinterhag Alm! If you miss it, you can blame yourself ...

Incredibly good skiing between Christmas easter. Here's everything, just pick and choose. One day without going on the same slope once here is possible!
Good après ski, nice people and often a big sun :)

Was there at week 10 2007. Clearly the worst ski resort I've been to when it comes to the Alps, though, it was bad snow that made it impossible to go down, but although there had been a lot of snow, Saalbach did not offer any challenging skiing just.
Short and flat slopes as well as many transport routes.
Are you looking for afterski and party and do not care much about the ride, then you can go to Saalbach.
Would you like better skiing in eg. Hemsedal.

I was in Saalbach Hinterglem week eight this year and although it was bad weather (good if you like sunbathing) then the slopes were great for lunch and then they became ice flusch. On the website it was stated that it would be 20 cm in the valley but the measuring stick must grow at 19.9 cm. Otherwise it would be really nice. Close to both Zell am See and Bagdastein (or how spelled it) I had a pair of atomic sx10 but did not get really slippery because of all Danes and Dutch who were eviscerated to cross my skis. Ideal skis would be a couple of blends between carving and snow blades.

A wonderful place where it's not too difficult to find out if you have a nose on the map sometimes. The most often unspoilt offpiste makes places worthwhile. Leogang's Pro Nitro park was not too big with had tasty jumps and rails. A top park where I met some other Swedes who filmed!

I have visited Saalbach / Hinterglemm nine winters and always think it's as fun to come back. The area is under rigid refurbishment and several new winters are being built for each season.
   The park in Hinterglemm city is always as fun ocgh in recent years they have also had a ski crossroads.

The area is definitely worth a visit.
