Skiing in a winter wonderland
Wolfgang Ambros an Austrian singer perfectly describes the true essence of skiing in his song „schifoan“. Skiing spreads much joy, connects and takes place in a unique and one of a kind winter scenery.
On the slopes the people are mostly in a good mood, enjoying themselves in a relaxed (holiday) environment – just letting go of everyday life.
As soon as the first rays of sunlight shine over the mountain peak and the motors of the cable cars are turned on, the ski day in the winter wonderland begins.
Austria's largest contiguous skiing area
Especially in Austria's largest contiguous skiing area, the ski circus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang Fieberbrunn, you can really let off steam.
The Countless slope variations of varying difficulties offer every skill level a pleasant time. Our service sector is also moving at the highest level: the ski schools work professionally together with trained and certified teachers.
The many sport stores offer the latest fashions as well as complete sets of skiing equipment-to Buy or Rent.
After completing your ski adventure the dedicated hosts on the mountain and in the valley, prepare the best culinary dishes in order to spoil the hungry athletes. The cottage culture in the ski circus is just too exemplary – the choice is just too difficult – preferably one would want to take place everywhere.
Later at night, the Après-Ski-Songs, played in the wide variety of bars and pubs, lure the athletes. Yes, even that part belongs to a real day of skiing – a Flying Hirsch (Jaegermeister & Red Bull) or a good glass of wine complete the eventful day perfectly.
Skiing - Austrian folk culture
Skiing plays a big part in the Austrian folk culture. There is hardly any other sport in the Alpine nation that captivates so many people – whether it be in front of the TV or live at major events.
For those who grew up in the mountains, spending time at the ski resort becomes necessity and a part of life. That said the ski resort is also popular and visited by the city folk.
