Saalbach-Hinterglemm Overview

An internationally known resort with over 200 kilometres of piste and one of the most snow-reliable resorts in Austria! The slopes face all directions to form a ski-circus with a vast array of skiing to suit all abilities. The resort is a popular choice for groups with ideal slopes at both Hinterglemm and Viehhofen which link over to nearby Leogang. A lift connection from Hinterglemm to Fieberbrunn opens up a further immense ski area. There are also good facilities for snowboarders with a flood-lit fun park and several half pipes. The resort benefits from free WIFI with 40 WIFI stations located throughout the ski area, making it easy to update your social media for parents and the school via posting pictures and updates in real time. Evening entertainments are plentiful and include bowling, disco and sleigh rides. In addition to this, the ski resorts of Zell am See-Kaprun and Saalbach are under one lift pass, meaning you have the opportunity to ski three fantastic Austrian resorts during your trip and will have access to the Kaprun glacier!
