Ski touring in Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang
Cold snow, sunny conditions and sensational runs down the mountains ...
That ist the way, ski touring should sound like. Do you know the feeling, that the alarm goes off way to early and you cannot even think of getting up and step out into the cold morning?

Amazing powder on the grass mountains
Due to the favorable location of Saalbach Hinterlgemm we get much snow. If the snow is good the valley offers great ski tours in different length and difficulty. We have lots of summits, peaks, faces and different powder runs for you.
The classic runs of the region you will find in the very end of the valley behind the Lindlingalm and the "Golden Gate Bridge of the Alps". The summits of the Staffkogel or the Schusterkogel are our classic goals for you and your touring buddies.
If you enter the Schwarzachergraben next to Hinteglemm you will find some more ski touring summits. Some of them are long and intensive hikes up mountains, ridges, faces and so on. Others on the other side are easy to reach with the help of the cable cars and lifts around Hinterglemm.

First of all it takes you forever through the Schwarzachergraben and from the Stoffenscharte the terrain gets alpine and steep and the way over the ridge to the summit can be tricky.
