The Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm is the largest connected ski area in Austria. A total of 270 kilometres of pure piste adventure awaits you – for beginners as well as for professionals. Spend an active holiday at the Hotel Barbarahof and enjoy varied winter days in Saalbach!

But: Check your equipment before you start! So that you have much more fun on the slopes and are safer on the road. We, your hosts Katrin and Roland Steger, tell you what preparations you should make.
And: What you can do before the trip, so as not to get any muscle soreness later.

Start your ski vacation prepared

The ski equipment

Wondering if your helmet needs to be renewed and wonder why your skis suddenly don’t glide so gently over the snow? We’ll tell you how to know that your equipment should be revamped:

The secret recipe for carefree winter fun are sharp edges and smooth surfaces. A small look at the skis and a short swipe with your finger over the surfaces and edges will tell you whether a service is necessary. Recognize and feel bumps, then you know what it is!

The ski helmet

So that you can enjoy your adventures in the snow to the fullest, the helmet must not be missing! Be sure to replace the helmet with a new one after coarser falls or with increased traces of use! Caution: Wear and tear is not always visible. Often only the inner life of the helmet bears damage after falls. Check the ski helmet before and after each season!

How do you know if the helmet is still okay? Take a look at the manufacturer’s note, in which you will find a description that shows which material your helmet is made of. Carbon and fiberglass helmets do a good job for about eight years – without damage, of course. For InMould or ABS/polycarbonate helmets, you should change the head protection every three to four years.

By the way: What else should end up in the suitcase besides the ski helmet? Take a look at the practical packing list for your winter holiday at the Hotel Barbarahof !

Physical preparation: the right preparation and aftercare to prevent sore muscles

Do you love being on the slopes? So much so that you even accept muscle soreness? But with the right preparation, you no longer need to torment yourself with aching thighs the next morning! We will tell you how to prevent muscle soreness with the help of targeted training exercises right before the first descent.

Tip: It’s best to start exercising as early as September. Then the body is perfectly prepared for the winter season!

1. Warm-up exercise for the upper body
The upper body is increasingly stressed by squatting positions when driving down. Therefore, do not neglect the warm-up! Start with small and ever-increasing circular movements of the arms.

2.Strengthening the thighs and buttocks
Start first by lifting the knee towards the chin, alternating the right and left sides. Then go into the squat several times to maximize blood circulation in trunk and thigh muscles.

Tip: When doing squats, make sure you don’t stretch your legs all the way up. And don’t forget to loosen your arms and legs a bit in between.

3.Treating relaxation
After a sporting effort, it is all the more important to give the body a break. Best of course in the wellness area. A soothing massage against muscle tension has earned you a lot after a strenuous day on the slopes!

Your desire to travel is aroused? Then you will immediately find out how varied a holiday at the Hotel Barbarahof is!

We wish you action-packed and soothing winter days!
