Skicircus Accommodation

The question of where to stay in the Skicircus is made doubly hard because of the ski resort's sheer size and number of villages and gondola base terminals. The villages of Saalbach, Hinterglemm, Leogang (2 base areas!) & Fieberbrunn have a huge range of hotels, apartments and chalets and all have their merits.

Other quieter locations for Skicircus accommodation like Vorderglemm, Viehhofen & up-valley from Hinterglemm toward Lengau, will appeal to those less interested in party time. Nearby Zell am See makes a great base for short visits.

Saalbach Accommodation

Whilst much of Saalbach is in shadow for winter, it is the absolute best place to stay to experience the Skicircus in all its glory. Three gondolas extend in all directions directly out of town and the amount of hotel accommodation, bars and restaurants is dizzying! Try the Alpinresort Sport Hotel & SpaHotel Post & Hotel Saalbacher Hof.

Hinterglemm Accommodation

Hinterglemm is sunny through the middle of the day in winter and most of the accommodation is 'ski in'.  Piste runs and off piste areas allow skiing right into town from both sides of the valley. Smaller than Saalbach, but still with a diverse collection of hotels, restaurants, bars, ski lifts and a few shops here and there, Hinterglemm makes a great base to explore the Skicircus. Try the Hotel GlemmtalerhofAlpin Juwel Hotel & Adler Resort Apartments.

Leogang Accommodation

Leogang has two separate Skicircus base areas centred on the Steinberg and Asitz gondolas respectively, with the Asitz area the larger of the two. A range of exceptional Skicircus Saalbach accommodation is available, some of it 'ski in'. Leogang is close to a railway station that occasionally services trains from Kitzbuhel and Zell am See. Try the Tarlack Apartments.

Fieberbrunn Accommodation

At Fieberbrunn, the sunniest of the four major Skicircus Saalbach villages, the best accommodation is near the gondola terminals above town. A range of hotels and apartments offer 'ski in' convenience. Fieberbrunn is close to a railway station that regularly services trains from Kitzbuhel & Zell am See. Try the Austria Trend Hotel Alpine Resort.

Other Accommodation Options

Several Skicircus Saalbach accommodation options in the Saalbach-Hinterglemm valley are available away from the ‘major’ centres. Some require a bus ride to access the main lifts and piste, i.e. Viehhofen down valley at the end of the free ski bus route. Others have lift access nearby, i.e. Vorderglemm near the new Schoenleiten gondola. Toward the head of the valley and off the ski bus route towards Lengau, are some choice ski in/ski out accommodation options near the Zwoelfer-Nord & Hochalm gondola. Additional accommodation is ‘randomly’ located along the road, much of it 'ski in' via the off-piste terrain. Try the Hotel Marten & Hotel Eder Michaela.

Zell am See is another option to use as a base. The bus trip from Zell am See to the gondola base at Vorderglemm takes only about 20mins.
