    Saalbach is my absolute favourite place to go skiing. The slopes are very well connected, so it is easy to get around, and the town is small and charmning. I would definitely recommend Saalbach for people of all ages and all ski-levels.

    I’ve visited Saalbach about 4-5 times, and I would probably rate it as one of the best ski resorts I’ve ever been to. The resort suits both beginners as well as advanced skiers, which makes it perfect for almost every group of travelers. There are plenty of red and black tracks for the more experienced skiers, but also plenty of blues for the not so experienced. Around week 6 through 8 it’s primarily families that visit this amazing resort. However the resort also attracts companies and businesses, which of course mean that the austrian infamous “Afterski” is very well implemented in Saalbach Hinterglemm. The place to be is called Hinterhag Alm, and it’s the biggest afterski place in Saalbach Hinterglemm.
    I would say that Saalbach is for everyone – it’s not only a resort for families, and it’s not only a resort for company trips. It will simply suit everyones taste – wether you want to wake up early to go skiing or you’d rather sleep in to get rid of the hangover.
