Record Breaking Season
Nestled in the Gelmmtal valley, Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Fieberbrunn Ski Circus is one of Europe’s largest ski areas. This year the resort has had record-breaking 1,593.595 overnight stays recorded. Therefore, this leading ski resort has just had one of its best seasons of all time! By joining with Fieberbrunn in 2015, Saalbach-Hinterglemm promised visitors 270km of varied ski pistes. This year however, the early onset of winter pushed overnight stays into a new realm. Skiers were able to enjoy snow until 8th April!
Saalbach-Hinterglemm’s 900 state of the art snow guns offer skiers snow-surety year after year. This year’s perfect conditions however boosted the resort’s overnight stays up to 82.08% by January! With an increase of 5.8% from 2017, the Tourist Office officials were overjoyed with the statistics. Wolfgang Breitfus, the Director of the SaaIbach Hinterglemm Tourist Office, stated:
‘Everything just simply came together this year: The early onset of winter in November, when Easter fell this year we had fantastic weather conditions with heavy snowfalls and top events.’ These events include the BERGFESTival and Rave on the Snow, two of the Alps most fantastic on-piste parties.

This year, freeriders enjoyed fresh powder runs nearly every day in January and February. Therefore it is not surprising that Saalbach is feeling excited for next ski season already. Looking forward, Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Fieberbrunn ski circus will enjoy a new modern 10-person gondola by December 2018, allowing the resort to retain its title as king of the Alps for snow conditions!
