Saalbach Hinterglemm – Experience the spirit of the Home of Casual
If you don’t know the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn yet, the first thing you’ll smile at is its long name. However, the variety around the most casual ski area in the Alps is just as long as the name. The region, which spans Salzburg and Tirol, not only combines 270 kilometres of pistes, 70 modern lifts and 60 cosy, stylish huts, but also a feeling: the spirit of the Home of Lässig – or in other words: the individual feeling of happiness! And that’s what fun-loving families, sporty alpine skiers and individualistic freeriders alike find here.
But how do you define this feeling of happiness? For some it is the care and warmth that can be felt from the hotel to the ski school – for others it is the perfection of the prepared slopes and the ultra-modern mountain railways. Or is it the untracked powder slopes and the “faceshots” that bring a smile to your face? The “Home of Lässig” is all about the joie de vivre, cosiness and variety, about a varied and incomparable time that will be remembered forever. What is your individual feeling of happiness?
Ski holidays for the whole family
When you think back to your first holiday with your family, most people have particularly emotional images in their minds that they like to remember. A winter holiday in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn is supposed to leave these beautiful memories, which is why the family has a very special place here. Mini racers and young carvers feel at home in the family-friendly ski area! Dedicated ski schools with children’s areas and ski kindergartens provide for the first skilful swings on snow. The proud parents are delighted when the kids are enthusiastically swinging over the snow-covered slopes after only a few days of skiing holiday. But there is also plenty to do off-piste for little explorers and adventurers.
The largest ski circuit in the Alps – The Challenge
“Ski your limit” is the slogan that describes one of the most demanding ski runs of the winter and its key figures speak for themselves: 65 kilometres of downhill runs, 32 lifts, 12,400 metres of altitude difference. The ski-circus round in the “Home of Lässig” can be completed by sporty skiers in around 7 hours – a short lunch is not included. Challenge accepted?
With these distances “The Challenge” ranks at the top of the renowned ski circus rounds in the Alps and even puts the “Sellaronda”, the “White Ring” or the “King’s Tour” in the shade. You should allow about seven hours for this challenging ski round in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, which leads around one of the most versatile and extensive ski areas in Austria. This challenge definitely puts sporting performance in the foreground. An extended stop in one of the many rustic huts along the route, dreamy summit moments or comfortable sunbathing are better postponed until the next skiing day, because 32 lifts between Saalbach Hinterglemm, Leogang and Fieberbrunn are waiting for you for this ski marathon.
