    Not to be looked down upon by pros!

    Among the 200 kilometers of slopes you’ll find 15 kilometers of difficult (black) runs, which will more than live up to any expert skiers and riders expectation! Although you won’t find runs comparable to for instance the “Gamsleiten 2” run at “Obertauern”, Saalbach-Hinterglemm provides some really nice options, which are certainly not to be despised. A must-ski and must-ride for all those that consider themselves experts in the snowsports-department is the 4 km long northbound descent 1b to the “Schattenberg x-press” or the World cup run 15 at the “Zwölferkogel”. Some of the intermediate runs can definitely be considered welcome diversion even for the best among skiers and riders, such as most descents from the “Asitz” or the “Schattenberg-Ost”. You can additionally check out the, all in all 4, mogul slopes at the “Zwölferkogel”, the “Schattenberg-West”, the “Kleine Asitz”, as well as, at the “Spieleckkogel”. Due to the numerous and diversified options for very skilles skiers and riders we award “Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Leogang”, four stars in this category!

      Nice freeride options!

      The size of the resort (35 kilometers of slope) and the number of high difficulty runs at „Fieberbrunn“ will not convince professional riders. The category black run „Reckmoos-Nord“ (10A) is the only groomed descent in this difficulty class. Highly skilled riders will get the most out of the resort area „Hochhörndlspitze“ and „Henne“. All those however who enjoy riding off-piste should check out the 4 ski-routes and respective variations. And should there be enough snow on the ground you’ll find several very nice powder runs in the unmarked terrain. No freeride-crack should miss the „Big Mountain“ event at „Fieberbrunn“ where freeride freaks from all over the world come together every year (Check out www.snowfever.at for more information!) The Pro riders among you who wish to improve their race technique find a permanent race run alongside the „Doischberg“ base area descent (Nr.8). All in all the resort achieves 3,5 out of 5 stars in the category „Professionals“.
