Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang
Let's move to the frosty areas of Austrian ski resorts, and more specifically to one giant beating the competition with the number of lifts and slopes. This is Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang, the pearl of Salzburg.
Few resorts can offer skiers as many opportunities as Austria 's largest ski region, Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang. There are 200 km of ski slopes serviced by 56 modern ski lifts and cable cars waiting for guests looking for madness on the slopes. Snow is guaranteed here thanks to the artificial snow system. The whole thing is completed by the variety of routes and extensive tourist infrastructure - for those who love skiing, a holiday in Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang is a guarantee of great fun.
The resort attracts tourists with an exceptionally rich offer. Among the 56 lifts, there are 17 cable cars, 18 chairlifts and 21 drag lifts. On the other hand, the descents are mostly intermediate runs (95 km). Beginners can choose from 90 km of green and blue runs, while experienced skiers will find 15 km of difficult black runs here. In addition, guests can enjoy 10 km of cross-country tracks and numerous ski slopes that can be traveled on in the evening.
There are also carving, racing and mogul tracks. Snowboard and freestyle enthusiasts will also go crazy - in the Leogang snow park there are halfpipes and other attractions for adrenaline lovers, including jump-boarder X, big pro kickers and house box.
Those who feel very confident in skiing and the usual leisurely skiing combined with admiring the views are definitely not satisfactory for them, can go on the Schattenberg Nord and Zwölferkogel Nord slopes. In turn, beginners can take advantage of the help of experienced instructors. Toddlers will combine learning with fun in a ski kindergarten prepared especially for them.

Skiing and after skiing ...
Such a large number of downhill runs can tire even the most avid winter sports enthusiast. After a day of skiing on the slopes, you can relax in several ways. Tourists who have the strength, enthusiasm and willingness to actively continue the evening can get acquainted with the offer of local bars and discos. And those who dream of relaxation will find peace in one of about 40 hostels, guesthouses and hotels.
Caravanners can stay at the Reisemobilstellplatz Alpenhof . Parking is available at the Pension Alpenhof, right next to the ski lift. Guests have access to electricity and hot water, they can use showers and toilets located in the building. It is best to ask about prices when booking - it is necessary because there are only a few parking spaces.
As you can see, the Austrian resort has something to tempt tourists. Will there be anyone who is unimpressed with 200 km of slopes?
A writer by profession, a passion of a cat. One day he will see what is behind the Urals - good to Vladivostok. So far, when he can, he enjoys the sun of the countries of southern Europe. And it's also fun;)
