Saalbach/HinterglemmThe neighbouring villages of Saalbach and Hinterglemm have always been PGLs most popular Austrian resort, with over 200km of piste and an excellent variety of slopes to suit all standards of skier. A superb lift system covers both sides of the Glemm Valley to form a large 'Ski Circus'. The area boasts some of the most reliable snow conditions in the country.
There are excellent runs for intermediates on beautiful tree-lined pistes and also on the open snowfields above Hinterglemm. Experts will find some steep and bumpy challenges, especially on the formidable Zwolfer run from the top of Hinterglemm at almost 2000 metres, down to the bottom of the valley.
Meanwhile, for beginners the nursery slopes are close to both village centres, with a range of good and easy runs higher up.
