Winter Activities Off-Piste in Saalbach


If you decide you do not feel like skiing or snowboarding, many other winter activities beyond the slopes await your discovery in Saalbach Hinterglemm! In addition to well-known and popular winter sports, such as cross-country skiing and tobogganing, you can look forward to snow shoe hikes and horse-drawn sleigh rides in the region of Salzburg. You can experience the snow-covered region from a different perspective with ice skating and ice stock sport which has a long tradition here, too.

Special highlights are the tree-top path (‘Baumzipfelweg’) and the ‘Golden Gate Bridge of the Alps’ – these two small but great sights are definitely worth a visit. Needless to say, there are so many other winter activities which Saalbach has for you to discover and experience.

After your exciting day in the snow, we invite you to enjoy our wellness area – sauna, shower & relaxation areas promise wonderful moments of pampering. Secure your winter activity holiday up on the mountains and down in the valley today with a non-binding enquiry!
