Two regions, one huge ski resort! The Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn extends over the border from Tirol into the neighbouring Salzburger Land region, making it one of the largest and most diverse ski resorts anywhere in Austria.
There are few wintersports resorts in Austria which cover as much terrain as the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn. This resort with its huge network of pistes extends over several chains of mountains and valleys in the Kitzbühel Alps, making it one of the largest ski resorts in the country. Indeed, such is the scale of the resort that the pistes stretch from Tirol into the neighbouring region of Salzburg. One such slope is the "Vierstadlalmpiste", which winds its way down next to the new state-of-the-art "TirolS" gondola on the Reiterkogel mountain.
This resort is ideal for skiers and snowboarders who want to cover as many different pistes as possible. There are also a number of snowparks as well as floodlit pistes, snow trails and cosy huts. Nearby Fieberbrunn in Tirol is ideal for families, though in recent years it has developed a reputation as a freeriding hotspot thanks to its challenging terrain and excellent powder on the Wildseeloder mountain. The Freeride Park at the Lärchfilzkogel mountain in Fieberbrunn is the perfect place for skiers and snowboarders to work on their jumps. Once a year the world's best freeriders gather in Fieberbrunn for the Freeride World Tour.
Beginners and families will also find plenty of pistes in the Skicircus. In fact, around half of the pistes are classified as blue (easy). Fieberbrunn is particularly good for those just getting their snow legs. As well as a short beginners' life at the bottom of the resort and many easy pistes further up the mountain, there are also a large number of red (intermediate) slopes, including the "Radarfalle" ("Speed Trap") run where skiers and boarders can try to set a new personal top speed. There are plenty of mountain restaurants and huts serving excellent food throughout the resort.
