Ski season 2020 / 2021 in Saalbach Hinterglemm

Slowly but surely, tender anticipation for the coming winter is spreading. Many are already dreaming of mountains covered in deep snow and perfectly groomed slopes, looking forward to thrilling ski and board action as well as exciting experiences away from the numerous downhill runs. And yet, a certain uncertainty about the upcoming ski season 2020 / 2021 in Saalbach Hinterglemm cannot be completely dismissed. Is it even possible to waft across the slopes? How will you ensure uninterrupted alpine fun? And how does Saalbach deal with Corona in winter? The Skicircus presents a comprehensive safety and hygiene concept for maximum skiing pleasure in uncertain times.

Safe winter vacation in Saalbach Hinterglemm

The entire Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang with direct connection to the Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See and the glacier ski area Kitzsteinhorn in Kaprun covers impressive 408 km of slopes. Such an enormous winter sports region naturally requires an exact, sophisticated concept to enable a safe and healthy coexistence. Therefore, a COVID 19 code of conduct was created, which can be viewed at and is constantly updated to include new regulations and findings. The most important measures at a glance:

  • If possible, the minimum distance must be maintained everywhere – even in the checkout area and the cable cars.
  • A mouth and nose protector is part of the mandatory equipment for the ski season 2020 / 2021 in Saalbach Hinterglemm. It has to be used:
  1. at the points of sale in the cable cars
  2. in the entire access and station area, in the cabins and in all access and exit areas of the cable cars
  3. in the ski depot
  4. in the toilets
  5. wherever the prescribed minimum distance cannot be maintained
  • Queuing areas are organized in such a way that, if possible, groups of people do not stand close together.
  • Hand disinfectants and waste garbage cans for the disposal of used mouth and nose masks are available in all indoor areas.
  • All cable cars should be well ventilated during the ride.
  • Cashless payment transactions or online booking of ski passes are requested.
  • Personal responsibility is important! Anyone showing potential symptoms should stay in the accommodation and contact a doctor or the accommodation company.

New in the coming ski season

Of course, there are a few things to consider when you visit the slopes to ensure a healthy, carefree coexistence. To make sure that skiing fun is not neglected, the entire Skicircus has recently invested heavily to improve comfort and snow reliability. Just in time for the planned start of the season on November 27, 2020, the following innovations await piste visitors:

  • ALPIN CARD Navigator App: With the new ALPIN CARD ticket network, you can travel through the three premium ski regions Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, Schmittenhöhe Zell am See and Kitzsteinhorn Kaprun. The accompanying Navigator App is the guide to all slopes including lift rides and possible bus connections. Individualized suggestions of runs of different lengths and degrees of difficulty as well as live information plus location determination always lead safely to the right slope.

  • New ski connection: Until now, anyone who wanted to switch from the Bernkogel to the Schattberg X-press had to take their skis and board and carry them from A to B. A new ski path – 300 meters long and six to ten meters wide plus an underpass – connects the piste and the mountain railroad directly on one or two boards.
  • Rosswald Reservoir (still under construction): Only started in the summer of 2020, the Rosswald reservoir on the multifunction trail and the high-altitude cross-country ski run will in future offer a useful capacity of approx. 230,000 m³ and significantly improve the region’s snowmaking capacity. From winter 2021/22 it will supply the area between Rosswald and Reiterkogel. In summer 2022, the reservoir will also be part of the theme trail on Kodok Mountain.

With consideration, solidarity and a little common sense, the ski season 2020 / 2021 in Saalbach Hinterglemm will certainly be an enjoyable happening. Of course, you will find the right accommodation for your stay at HolidayFlats24!
