Gründe für den Sonnenskilauf in Saalbach Hinterglemm

Sun skiing in Saalbach Hinterglemm
Why spring is the better winter

Winter is almost over, and spring is approaching with great strides. But this is no reason for ski fans to be sad. Because in the spring months, the Saalbach Hinterglemm ski area shows its particularly beautiful side and plays all the pieces when it comes to sun skiing. Why skiing in spring is really fun, we, your hosts Katrin and Roland Steger, have summarized for you:


Reason 1: Pure sun! One of the best arguments for skiing in spring: the sun. Spend the morning on the slopes and enjoy the sun at lunchtime on one of the numerous huts in the ski area – a day of skiing in Saalbach Hinterglemm could hardly be more beautiful, right? Tip: Don’t forget sunscreen, you get sunburn in the mountains faster than you like.

Reason 2: Space on the slopes! We all know them, the days when the slopes are quite well filled. Not so from March. Those who ski at this time of year will be rewarded with almost empty pistes. Especially early in the morning, one often wags down the snow-covered slopes alone.

Reason 3: It runs like clockwork. The winter holidays are over and with it the big rush to the ski resorts. Longer waiting times at the lift or at the hut are a thing of the past from the end of February. And that’s a good thing, because there’s more time to enjoy the sunny day to the fullest.

Reason 4: Photo motifs as far as the eye can see. The days get longer, and the sun shows up more often. This is the spring skiing in Saalbach Hinterglemm. To keep you reminded of your skiing holiday for a long time to come, we recommend taking numerous snapshots for the photo album. They become particularly beautiful in spring, thanks to excellent lighting conditions – and those who remain at home pale in envy.

Reason 5: Fir snow. When the snow cover freezes overnight and slowly begins to soften during the day, it is called “firn snow”. And this can be found especially in the warmer spring months on the slopes in the Saalbach Hinterglemm ski area. Those who start their ski day early in the morning are looking forward to harder snow in the first hours and softer snow towards the afternoon hours.


At numerous huts in the Saalbach Hinterglemm ski area, the motto this year is once again “firn snow, sun, sound and culinary delights” when the White Pearl Mountain Days take place. And there is no question that holiday feeling arises. Excellent piste conditions and bright weather, combined with cool sound, international cuisine and your own deckchair in the sun. Whether at the Luis Alm, the Hendlfischerei, the Wieseralm or at one of the numerous other huts and alpine pastures that join the action: A ski day could hardly be more spring-like.


Of course, it can happen that the weather is not as fantastic as we would like it to be. But that is no longer annoying. Because in Saalbach Hinterglemm and the surrounding area there are numerous opportunities to fully enjoy rainy days. How about a trip to the Salzwelten Hallein or the Haus der Natur in Salzburg, for example? Or you can spend your vacation day relaxing in the hotel’s own wellness area.
