Leogang

On the opposite side of the mountain to Saalbach & Hinterglemm you will find the ski village of Leogang. This resort is a quieter alternative, not to mention cheaper!  The main part of the Leogang ski area has 25 kilometers of slopes and there are 11 ski lifts. One of the lifts take you in the direction of Saalbach/Hinterglemm. Because Leogang is not so busy, you can enjoy the scenery and the trails in peace. The Asitz slopes are the most snow sure within the area. The village of Leogang has a small center with a plaza and shops, bars and restaurants.

Location and surroundings

Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn

The ski area of Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn is one of the best resorts in Austria and is rightfully referred to as the Ski Circus. More than 200 km (124 ml) of pistes are sure to give you enough choice for a great holiday!

The keener, advanced skier can head to the Schattberg side. Here on the Northern side, a 4 kilometre (3 ml) tough black run forms a formidable challenge to those who dare to try it! However the Western side also offers plenty to push even the most experienced skiers and boarders.

The Ski Circus is still an area in development. Every year new lifts are being built. If you are a beginner then you should take the lift to the Seekar area situated at a higher altitude. Here you can practice on easier pistes and still enjoy the fantastic views.

This region also caters for snowboarders. Besides half pipes and a snow park in Saalbach there are also special snowboard pistes available. After skiing or snowboarding, the cosy ski huts are great places to meet your fellow holiday makers. Saalbach is a small, peaceful village. Hinterglemm on the other hand has a more extensive après-ski with lots of English pubs as well.
