The Austrian resort of Saalbach revamped its lift system over the summer. Skiers and riders visiting Saalbach this winter will benefit from three new lifts offering faster, more comfortable access to the slopes.
The resort has invested €5,000,000 in the new six-seater Turm chairlift with its heated seats and safety loops; €7,000,000 in the eight-seater Hasenauerkoepfl bubble lift which replaces the four-seater Hasenauerkoepfl; and €1,400,000 in the four-seater SL Almbahn which replaces the old T-bar lift in Leogang.
The lift company also has invested in vehicles, piste bashes, and snowmaking facilities. The ski area boasts snow cannons on 90 percent of its slopes.
The Saalbach Hinterglemm ski area offers a total of 200 kilometres of prepared slopes particularly well suited to intermediates with 90 kilometres of blue runs, 95 kilometres of red runs, and 15 kilometres of black runs. The slopes are accessed via 55 modern cable ways and lifts.
The ski area also features 40 mountain huts, 10 kilometres of cross-country trails, snowparks, GS race courses, flood-lit slopes, and mogul runs.
Non-skiing activities in Sallbach Hinterglemm include toboganning, winter hiking, snowshoeing, sleigh rides, ice skating, Austrian curling, archery, paragliding, tennis, swimming, snowmobiling, piste basher driving, and ice karting.
