Saalbach-Hinterglemm Leogang 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.
The Alpin Card covers three regions on one pass, giving you access to 408km of premium slopes and 121 lifts. Alongside the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, you also get access to the Kitzsteinhorn in Kaprun and Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See.
Accessing Zell am See's Ski Area
From 7th December 2019 a new modern lift included on the Alpin Card will connect the 270km ski area of Saalbach & Hinterglemm to the 138km ski area of Zell am See, including access to Zell am See’s 32km of black runs. To access this area ski down to the Zell connection lift and take the zellamsee Xpress gondola up Schmittenhöhe mountain. On return ski down to the middle station, then either take the prepared ski route to the bottom or take the section zellamsee Xpress gondola. Once at the bottom it is a short 5 minute bus which runs every 20 minutes back to Saalbach.
