    Pure pleasure for athletic skiers!

    Saalbach Hinterglemm is among the largest resorts in Austria. Thus intermediate skiers are offered innumerable options to ski intermediate terrain (red). The, altogether, 24 red slopes are spread across the entire “Skicircus”, intermediate skiers can therefore discover the entire ski resort on 95 km of slopes which cater to their ability. Anything but boredom guaranteed! The only time the skis need to be taken off is to reach the connecting ski lift facilities at the village-base areas “Saalbach” and “Hinterglemm”. The entire resort is easily accessible thanks to the well placed and organized ski lift facilities. Particularly recommendable are the World Cup runs 13 and 53 and the category red runs around the mountains “Schattenberg-Ost”, “Großer Asitz” and “Kleiner Asitz”. Another highlight is the special carving run along the “Hochalm” chair lift. All in all, a total of five stars, highest possible rating, in the intermediate category.

      Over half of the runs are category red!

      With 20 kilometers of category red terrain the almost 60 % oft he resorts slopes are of medium difficulty. Athletic riders have enough options to enjoy themselves and go for it on advanced level runs. For the more advanced riders the „Henne“ (2078m) (all the way on the left on the mountain map!) is the most interesting part of the resort. This area is only reachable via the 2-passenger chair-lift „Reckmoos“. As the area is divided from the rest of the skiing resort advanced riders are basically among themselves and can therefore enjoy their carving verves undisturbed by less skilled riders. Here we can recommend all runs without exception: the „Reckmoos-Nord“ run (10), the „Sonnenmulde“ (11) and the „Reckmoos-Süd“ run (12). The very steep category black „Reckmoos-Nord“ descent (10A) is simply a treat. Thanks tot he modern ski-lift-facilities „Reckmoos-Süd“ 8-passenger gondola and the „Hochhörndl“ 4-passenger chair-lift the up-hill transportation is quick and comfortable. Having reached the mountain station of the „Hochhörndl“ chair-lift at 2020 meters you should take the time to check out the wonderful panorama oft he „Kitzbühler Alps“.
