With the opportunity to do the circuit in a day, this really is one of the best ski areas in Austria, if not Europe! The modern, well-connected lift system with its numerous high-speed gondolas offers over ten main entry points into the ski circus, providing easy high level access and keeping queues at a minimum.
We have come to expect only the finest tuition from the superb ski schools, having been partners with Club Europe for over 20 years. First time skiers will begin their week on the nursery slopes just above the villages, and by mid-week will be experiencing the mountains as they see their progression to gentle slopes higher up. It is our aim to have every skier conquer a peak by the end of the week, and in terms of progression and variety you cannot beat Saalbach-Hinterglemm!
Saalbach-Hinterglemm continues to modernise so that the resort benefits from a fleet of fast cable cars and lifts. In addition to the child-safe and heated lift on the nursery slope, there is now a 10-seater cable car linking Saalbach with Fieberbrunn, bringing you a whole new ski resort in one lift pass! Investment in state-of-the-art snowmaking contributes to a fantastic Easter snow record, making this a great choice for school ski trips outside February half-term.
The circus has also become a paradise for the snowboarding enthusiast, as there are a number of snow parks, offering pipes, half pipes and specially designed slopes.
In addition to the many great in-house facilities for school ski trips in the valley, groups can enjoy a variety of evening activities locally and in the neighbouring town of Zell am See. Some of our favourites are:
