This is a hotel that's full of character with quirky interiors, lavish fabrics, crystal chandeliers and mirrors at every turn. It also has a really fun atmosphere in the Prosecco bar, and the circular galleried bar regularly hosts a dance night and memorable Elvis show.

 

There's a brightly decorated indoor pool and wellness area too. Great if you fancy a night off the dance floor or to ease aching muscles. If you need some extra attention, you can book a massage or beauty treatment for a local charge.

 

 

It's only a short walk from the ski lifts too so within minutes you'll be at the top of the Schattberg mountain with access to miles of runs across the 270km Ski Circus area.

 

As well as the in-house bar, it's a great place to enjoy the lively and traditional Austrian après-ski. Saalbach is livelier than the neighbouring Hinterglemm and a good choice is your looking to enjoy your time off the slopes as well as on.

About the resort

Saalbach and Hinterglemm are two pretty villages that sit in Austria's largest ski area; the Ski Circus. It has the name because the slopes literally surround you. There's 270km of picturesque red and blue runs with mountain huts dotted all around. This place was just made for the mile-hungry intermediate skier or boarder.

 

 

If you want to attempt a full circuit in one day then you'll need to get up early. Or try the long run over to Leogang for lunch to check that your legs are up to it. If you're more advanced, there are some steep blacks and moguls under the Shattberg Express gondola and the freeriding is some of the best in Austria!

 

The après-ski is a genuine Austrian experience and starts on the mountain at about 3pm. Saalbach is the livelier of the two villages and you can keep going until the early hours if you have got the pace.
