School ski trips to Saalbach
Why take a school ski trip to Saalbach?
30 minutes from Zell am See, Saalbach and Hinterglemm are two typical Austrian ski resorts with a lot to offer. In the centre, there's a beautiful old church with a gaggle of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants surrounding it.
The two resorts, in combination with nearby Fieberbrunn, offer more than 240km of slopes with 68 ski lifts. All levels of difficulty are catered for: beginners can ski the blue/green slopes of Hinterglemm, while intermediates will have lots of fun on the wide and sunny slopes in Saalbach. Fieberbrunn guarantee challenging rides for ski and snowboard experts. There is also a floodlit snow park in front of Hinterglemm.
Off-piste there's a wide range of other sport to keep your group busy. A sports centre, swimming pool and ice rink are all honest distractions from the sometimes hectic Après-Ski scene in Saalbach.
This residence is nestled in a sunny spot between both villages, right at the end of a blue valley slope. It's a basic but comfortable guesthouse with a lounge-dining room, a small bar for cosy gatherings, an internet corner and a play/party room in the basement. Catering includes a breakfast buffet in the morning and a three-course menu in the evening.
To access the slopes, a 5 minute 'Skibus' ride from the main road will whisk you to Hinterglemm or to the cable car in Saalbach.
