Saalbach-Hinterglemm School Ski Trips

Saalbach-Hinterglemm School Ski Trips

The Resort:

The traditional Austrian village of Saalbach links with its sister village of Hinterglemm in this resort. Situated in the forested Glemm valley they are classic alpine villages with a small river running through the centre and charming wooden buildings that create a picturesque setting. The resort is the second largest linked ski area in Austria with a huge 270km of skiable terrain that keeps snow lovers occupied for days on end.

Skiing in Saalbach-Hinterglemm:

The combination of accessible beginner areas, gently tree-lined blue runs, and steeper advanced runs make the resort perfect for mixed-ability groups. The 270km of terrain means the variety of pistes is almost staggering, with all abilities having slopes that they can ski down leisurely or challenge themselves on. For the more advanced skiers, the black run of Schattberg is a must-try and there are also superb guided off-piste opportunities as well as steep mogul runs. Snowboarders are also catered for with a well-equipped and groomed fun park to enjoy. The resort links to the towns and slopes of Leogang and Fieberbrunn to add even more skiing options. A mix of North facing slopes that hold powder well and south-facing slopes that are perfect for sun-seekers adds to the resort’s list of benefits.

For Schools Because:

Continuing advancements in snowmaking facilities alongside the exceptional snow record help to ensure that the season lasts as long as possible and that good quality slopes are always available. The first-class lift system that operates at high speeds helps to contribute to a beneficial lack of queues that is perfect for students who want to spend as much time on the slopes as possible. A further benefit for school groups is the convenient train access into the villages that is available.

Après Ski:

Lack of entertainment off the slopes is not a problem at Saalbach-Hinterglemm with snow tubing, tobogganing, and an Alpine coaster all available as well as an indoor pool and indoor ski rink in the villages. For those keen on culture, there is the Museum Schloss Ritzen and the Mining and Gothic Museum. The slope-side cafes and restaurants are a great place to take a well-earned break from the slopes.
