The ski area known as the Ski Circus is made up of three resorts-Hinterglemm, Saalbach and Leogang. Collectively they offer more than 200km of pistes and the area overall is still being developed with new lifts being built every year so this is definitely a ski area to keep an eye on.
The twin villages of Hinterglemm and Saalbach boast a vast interconnecting ski experience with 54 lifts and 9 access points across the Glemm valley. Saalbach is the larger of the two and is best suited to intermediate skiers and boarders whilst Hinterglemm is best for novice and less experienced intermediates.
