Winter sports for everyone with Saalbach ski holidays
Saalbach is one of the most popular ski resorts in Austria, because Saalbach ski holidays benefit from a great variety of runs, extensive off-piste skiing and an excellent track record for snow. On the north side of the Saalbach Valley the runs are south-facing and therefore sunnier, making them popular with visitors. On the south side the snow is untouched by the sun and so thicker, especially later on in the season. The off-piste skiing on the south side is hugely popular, so there’s a type of skiing to suit everyone with Saalbach holidays. Various skiing and snowboarding schools offer lessons to beginners or to more experienced skiers who just want to brush up their skills.
Skiing isn’t the only thing holidays in Saalbach have to offer. As well as the more unusual cross-country skiing, there’s also tobogganing, snowshoeing, paragliding, sleigh rides and numerous other outdoor activities. There’s walking in the mountains, even in winter, including free weekly guided walks leaving from the Saalbach Information Centre; the perfect opportunity to enjoy the stunning mountain scenery.
Saalbach ski holidays offer accommodation of all kinds, from simple guesthouses offering bed and breakfast to independent holiday apartments to modern luxury hotels; there’s something to suit every visitor. The aprés-ski scene in Saalbach is vibrant and bustling. Popular bars and nightclubs draw in skiers wanting to relax and unwind after a hard day on the slopes and the many restaurants give visitors the chance to sample delicious local and international cuisine.
