Is snow truly a certainty below 2000 m?

The highest point in the entire Skicircus is the Western peak of the Schattberg, clocking in at just 2,096m above sea level. The ski area is therefore certainly not one of the higher ski areas in Austria. Nevertheless, Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn still manages almost every year to be one of the first ski areas open its doors at the end of November. The ski season here generally lasts until the start of April and is therefore over 130 days long. This is primarily down to the almost seamless snowmaking system employed at the Skicircus: Over 900 snow cannons, fed by 12 water reservoirs (as of January 2016), distribute the "white gold" on the slopes between Hinterglemm and Fieberbrunn. As over 90% of the runs can be artificially covered by snowmaking, the Skicircus still has an above-average number of runs open despite a possible lack of natural snowfall. So can Saalbach Hinterglemm hold its own when it comes to snow levels, despite the vast majority of its trails being below 2000 m? The answer is a resounding "yes". Only those looking to venture off-piste will have to keep the low altitude of the ski area in mind. Even the best snowmaking systems will be of little help if visitors are primarily looking for off-piste powder. High-altitude ski areas definitely have the edge in this respect.

The area offers a good snow guarantee during the opening hours. It should be noted that at the beginning and end of the season, however, some slopes may be closed due to snow conditions. Especially... Read complete review

Snow safety not always given, except artificial snow, this year was natural snow in abundance. You can ski practically every winter. 1000-2300 m high

Due to the low altitude, snow cannons are there enough, but depending on the season, it can be scarce down or in the valley.

is always very well given, because all the main downhill runs for the ski circus round are snowed.
