Saalbach & Hinterglemm - Two first class resorts, sharing 200km of extensive skiingSkiing in this area is really excellent. With 200km of pistes and 55 lifts this valley is an intermediates' dream. But there’s plenty of excellent off-piste available too. And don’t miss the long, flowing run down to neighbouring Leogang – often overlooked by visiting skiers. It’s a wonderful long north-facing run all the way down to Leogang. With perhaps a quick pit stop at the rustic Kraller Alm chalet.
Saalbach-Hinterglemm are attractive villages only 4km apart (Saalbach is the larger resort of the two with a charming centre with stylish shops and cafés) but they form a vast ski circus in the picturesque Glemm valley. And with après-ski partying starting early each afternoon, at bars such as the 'Hinterhag Alm' in Saalbach and the Goaßstall in Hinterglemm with the more enthusiastic skiers dancing on tables in some of the the mountain huts, you could say there’s a circus atmosphere too!
Those who want to continue into the night could try Saalbach's most popular tavern Costello's.
Ski and Snowboard informationBeginners - nursery slopes are right in the village centres and both ski schools enjoy an excellent reputation
Intermediates - extensive terrain for those preferring blue and red runs is directly accessible from both village centres including Bernkogel, Kohlmais and Reiterkogel regions.
Advanced - the runs from the Schattberg cable car offer a good selection of mogul runs and off piste skiing. Alternatively, expert skiers will enjoy the challenging 'Nordabfahrt' and the World Cup run on the Zwolferkogel in Hinterglemm
Snowboarding - one of the best Austrian resorts for snowboarders, with three fun parks and plenty of easy blues and reds as well as an abundance of off piste
