The Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang ski resort and the Fieberbrunn ski resort combined in the 2015/2016 season to form one of the largest ski resorts in Austria. The ski resort now stretches from Tyrol (Fieberbrunn) all the way into Salzburger Land (Saalbach Hinterglemm and Leogang). With state-of-the-art lifts, the seemingly endless Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn ski resort meets the highest standards – everyone from mini slope professionals to snowpark acrobats to toboggan tamers and slope experts will find their pleasure here. After the ski day, Après-Ski in Saalbach and Hinterglemm is especially worth a visit.

Best tips for Saalbach Hinterglemm
This season, with a new six-pack on Bernkogel, Saalbach-Hinterglemm effectively completes its mission to abolish the slow lift. Most people holidaying here will ride nothing but gondolas and fast chairlifts. But this is overshadowed by much bigger news: a new gondola (and a new piste) this season will create a link with Fieberbrunn, to the north, making Austria’s largest linked ski area. The valley has a lot going for it in other respects, too. Sadly, reliably good snow isn’t one of them. The snowmaking is good enough to make a midwinter visit here a fairly safe bet, but problems can arise as spring approaches. Saalbach and Hinterglemm are separate villages, their centres 4km apart, which have expanded along the floor of their dead-end east-west valley. They haven’t quite merged, but have adopted a single marketing identity. A ‘ski-circus’ links the two, with lifts and runs on both sides of the valley. At the eastern end is a long-standing link to Leogang, in the next valley, and now from a point directly above Hinterglemm there will be the new link with Fieberbrunn. Several resorts in Salzburgerland are reachable by road. There are two regional passes to consider – read the ‘Lift passes’ panel.
- Good intermediate area – expanded now to become Austria’s largest
- Lift system now essentially 100% fast chairs and gondolas
- Saalbach is a pleasant, lively village, largely car-free in the centre
- Dozens of good mountain huts
- The snowmaking is crucial – most slopes are sunny as well as low, and the snow suffers
- Limited steep terrain
- Both villages spread widely
- Boisterous evening behaviour doesn’t suit everyone
