SAALBACH-HINTERGLEMM SKIING

Skiing takes place from the eastern end of the valley near Saalfelden, to the western end at Hinterglemm, on both the southern and northern facing slopes. The skiing in the Saalbach sector takes place on predominantly south facing slopes with numerous intermediate slopes located between Vorderglemm and Saalbach, as well as the slope and lift connection to the Leogang sector. The skiing is almost all tree-lined and is ideal for intermediate skiers and snowboarders. To the west of Saalbach, slopes and lifts connect to the Hinterglemm ski sector and from here into the newly connected sector of Fieberbrunn. The Saalbach ski sector is served by modern, high-capacity lifts, is an intermediate skier’s dream and has a huge number of mountain huts.

To the west of the Saalbach ski area is the Hinterglemm ski sector. With a similar height and vertical to the Saalbach sector, Hinterglemm offers arguably a bigger and better ski area with steeper skiing. The Hinterglemm skiing on the south side of the resort, beneath Zwölferkogel offers some challenging gradients, whilst the Westgipfel ski route is located close by. For intermediates looking to cover some large distances, it is possible to ski the circuit running between Saalbach and Hinterglemm in an anti-clockwise direction. Side trips into both Leogang and Hinterglemm add to the distances available. There remains a project to link the Saalbach-Hinterglemm ski region to Zell am See in the south.
