Learn to ski in Saalbach Hinterglemm


Just under 2hrs drive away from Salzburg and just over 2hrs drive from Innsbruck, Saalbach Hinterglemm is one of Austria’s favourite skiing destinations. Located in the Glemm valley within the state of Salzburg, the resort encompasses the pistes around the two towns Saalbach and Hinterglemm, and is part of Austria’s largest ski area, the Ski Circus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn.

Known as "Home of Lässig" (transl. “the home of coolness”), the Ski Circus has 270km of pistes, around half of them being beginner runs. The Zwölferkogel mountain area - situated on the left side of the Saalbach Hinterglemm valley - has the most challenging runs, including a world championship route and a world cup piste.

Also to the left side of Saalbach Hinterglemm are two other peaks with mainly intermediate runs; Schattberg Ost (2020m) and Schattberg West (2096m). To the right, the Spieleckkogel, Reichkendlkopf, Hochalmspitz, Hasenauerköpfl, Reiterkogel, Bernkogel, Kohlmaiskopf, Prundelkopf and Wildenkarkogl peaks have mostly blue and green runs and are ideal for beginners.

Ski lessons for beginners in Saalbach Hinterglemm


Ski schools in Saalbach Hinterglemm offer ski lessons for snow fans aged 3yrs and above, lessons lasting for 4hrs/day. Beginners are taught the first basics of skiing on very flat slopes; how to glide and the snowplough.

There are beginner areas directly in both villages within the resort, and also in nearby Vorderglemm: Ski schools in Saalbach Hinterglemm generally use the nursery slopes on the south side of the Hinterglemm around the Reiterkogel, or at the Wildenkarkogel, which is accessed from Vorderglemm via the Schönleitenbahn no.1 & 2, for the first few lessons. Once the basic moves have been well-established, ski novices move to the gentle pistes with a little more gradient within the resort.

There are several ideal destinations for nursery slope graduates, the Reichkendlkopf and Reiterkogel areas being the recommendation of the ski schools in Saalbach Hinterglemm. These two areas offer a wide variety of blue slopes and most of the slopes are south facing, meaning that, with a bit of luck, ski beginners can soak up some warming sunshine whilst practising their newly-learned skills.

Other ski school meeting points in Saalbach Hinterglemm are directly at the beginner slopes, generally either in Hinterglemm, or on the Wildkargkogel area in nearby Vorderglemm.

Once ski novices are secure in their glide and snowplough moves, classes progress onto the easier blue runs within the resort. The Reiterkogelbahn, which starts directly in Hinterglemm, has some lovely blues back down to the valley. From Saalbach, the Kohlmaisbahn no.1 & 2 access further sunny blues starting from the Kohlmaiskopf.

With a total of 112km of red runs, ski schools in Saalbach Hinterglemm have an extensive choice for their intermediate skiers. The Kohlmaiskopf, Reiterkogel and Hasenauer Köpfl areas all offer excellent red runs, the Kohlmais reds, however, are the main choice for the ski schools in Saalbach Hinterglemm, due to their direct access via the Kohlmaisbahn lifts.
