The skiing area runs East-West. The consequence is that one side of the valley is always in the shade whilst the other is always in the sun. The skiing is superb. The slopes are well prepared and unusually, the piste-bashers carry on running day and night. Additionally, most of the pistes are covered by snow-cannons. Many of the slopes are covered in pine trees and tree-line skiing is much the order of the day. There are miles and miles of fabulous off-piste for powder hounds. Despite this, surprisingly, snowboarders are in the minority here. Time after time we found that insufficient thought had been given to connections between ski areas. Too often you found that you had a long hike to the

Inmiddels 2 jaar in Hinterglemm geweest. Ronduit fantastisch! Zeker 10x beter dan het bekendere Saalbach. In Saalbach komen meer (rijke en arrogante) Russen en liggen de prijzen naar mijn idee om die Russen een stuk hoger (getuige een skijack van EUR 2800,00!). Tikkeltje decadent. Hinterglemm is een stuk gemoedelijkers, prachtige hotels en appartementen en veel pistes / liften die in het dorp uit komen. Totale skigebied is zeer groot. Je hebt zeker een hele week nodig om alles te hebben geskied. Je kunt het hele dal rond (Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang). Ook voor kinderen is Hinterglemm een aanrader. Uitstekende skischool.

Stayed in the Sonnalp 4th to 11th March. Good food and excellent swimming pool for relaxing in after the slopes. Brilliant resort for intermediates, lots of red and steep blue slopes. Lifts are very good with no queues. Not many Brits in Hinterglemm, but lots in Saalbach. Tip for anyone staying at the Sonnalp - use the ski lockers under the nearest gondola station. It's only 1 Euro for each time you unlock one and you can get several sets in a locker. Much better than the trek up the hill to the hotel.

Super skigebied!!! Erg veel mooie piste's en bijna geen sleeplift meer te vinden. Eigenlijk worden er elk jaar wel 1 of meerdere liften vervangen en sneeuwkanonnen bijgeplaatst. Zelfs afgelopen winter kon je hier nog aardig wat piste's nemen terwijl er gebieden waren die gewoon helemaal gesloten waren of maar 1 piste hadden doordat er afgelopen winter echt een gebrek aan sneeuw was in ALLE skigebieden. Door de vele kanonnen werden er gewoon piste's opgespoten. Ook kan je altijd uitwijken naar Kaprun (gletscher) Zit je in Viehhofen of daar vlakbij, schischule Viehhofen bij Landal is echt een aanrader. Voor apresski kun je op meerdere plaatsen in de dorpjes terecht of op de piste's bij o.a. de

We made our fifteenth annual visit to Hinterglemm. Our group goes from teens to seventy-pluses, from beginners to world-travelled experts, and this is the resort for everyone. Very few tows, now, as Saalbach-Hinterglemm are constantly up-grading, and have also invested heavily in snow-machines; as a result even in times of little snow-fall, the skiing is OK. Mostly it is fabulous, over a huge linked area, and the local people could not be friendlier.The family-run hotels are great, with excellent and ample food.We'll be back, again - and again - and again ---.
