Ski Guide to Leogang | Austria

It’s happening, Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn in Western Austria is fast being heralded as the coolest place to strap on skis or a snowboard in all the Alps.

This mountain range in Austria famously spans eight beautiful countries, making this quite a statement, we know, but if you ask us it really is true; Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn is the absolute coolest. One of the largest ski resorts in Austria it has a huge range of skiing on offer with 270km of slopes, 7 snow parks, 2 natural free ride parks, 2 lit tracks and 5 toboggan runs and an internationally acclaimed centre for Nordic skiing with breath-taking cross country tracks taking you into the heart of the crisp white countryside. 

Should you feel like embracing your glittering white surroundings in a more adrenaline packed manner then in Asitz you can find one of the longest and fastest steel zip lines in the world.

Opening in 2017 riders will fly their way into the valley at speeds of 130km/h, we can’t wait to fly into the future and try it.
