Austria, Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Fieberbrunn Ski Circus
Saalbach-Hinterglemm provides one of Europe’s most exciting circuses – in both senses of the word. The attractive villages may be 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. Those who want to continue into the night could try Saalbach's most popular tavern Costello's. As for the skiing – it’s 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.
