@PeteMan, Ah, but does he have a schnapps fountain in his shop?
Hagleitners are recommended for boot fitting - even by Hansi!

I would highly recommend the Liebe Heimat in Vorderglemm, nice venue pleasant staff, their Kaiserschmarrn is superb.@honved, one of my favourite places have you come across the Newfoundlander


The OH and Jnr stopped at Liebe Heimat for coffee and cake one afternoon in the summer (refuelling after doing the riverside trim trail) when I was throwing myself down the mountain on two wheels. They were raving about how lovely it was.

@Yorksboy, Haven't tried that, but, as you point out, it does say: "The connection with Glemmtal is still possible via the ski route to Viehhofen. The ski route ends in Kreuzlehengraben in Viehhofen. Every hour the 680 bus takes you from the bus stop at FŲrstereck back to Zell am See. The ride takes about 30 minutes. The bus is free for skiers with a valid lift pass." Perhaps the lift company has done a deal with the company that runs the Postbus. Presumably the Saalbach or Zell am See Tourist Information Centre would be able to give a categoric answer. In the meantime take a photocopy of that article to show the driver of the postbus wink

I skied in Zell last year and we did a day in Saalbach etc. I was under same impression it was covered by the ski alpin pass, but the post bus driver was having none of it so had fork out for (in the words of the mighty Jim Bowen) the bus fare home.

Hoping that the weather will allow the link to be open and that I will have my face stuffed with chicken in just over a week...

Looks like a beautiful weekend to be in Saalbach this weekend!

I just have one non alcoholic beer, hum quietly to a couple of songs then leave very serenely 👍

Absolutely stunning bluebird last day today. Spent from 8.30am until 1.4pm skiing really grippy blues and reds. I DID revisit the Winker Alm and got a selfie and a chat with the waitress,all in all it don't get much better! Back with an Endura bike this summer maybe?? Blush

Yeah, deffo. Hired a Giant Reign back in 2015 for 2 days. To tell the truth it's a toss up as to whether Saalbach -Hinterglamm is better in summer rather than winter. I need more experience there I reckon! Laughing

So today I went over to Leogang for a bit of a ski around, the snow was sugary and powdery. Not very busy really. No queuing for lifts. Plenty of coverage all over the area right down to base stations (but first time here so I donít know what itís like usually to be honest)
Had lunch at the Chicken Man to see what people were on about. Very nice it was too. Yum yum and nice views.
Then I skied around the Leogang Saalbach area generally until I met Yorksboy later on for an apres ski beer.
About to go off and find something for tea.

@skimel

I generally use the following to find available accommodation in Saalbach and book through the site

https://www.saalbach.com , just click on the accommodation at the top

If you can flex your dates to leave or start on a Saturday as that is changeover day then it will open more options I guess, unless you have unlimited budget.

The last couple of years I have only been able to do 4/5 days, so have started the Friday/Saturday and come back weds, albeit in January.

Always found accommodation from Saturday no issue, but had to stay in a different place on the Friday night to benefit from an extra 1/2 day skiing Friday, BA flight from Gatwick on Friday at 715 gets you into Saalbach by lunchtime with taxi.

I have also found booking a week and only using 4/5 days can be more cost effective as some places wonít sell a short break, eg I have checked your dates and you have one option in Saalbach (hotel Sonne which is great, stayed there a few times but a little out of centre) itís Ä1500, however if you put in Saturday 17th to 24th, you can pick up a pension for Ä800, hotel peter for example right in the centre by the Bernkogel lift. Accommodation wonít compare, but all depends on your budget and priorities.

@skimel, I'm in daily contact with many of the British apartment owners in Saalbach. Let me know if you'd like me to message them.

Hi Tatman. That would be great. If it's cheaper to book a weeo we can do 17 to 24 or 24 to 3 March. If we go without kids we will do only 4 nights. B and B or appt will suit us. Our little man is only 15 months so if we were to bring him we would might take the in-laws also . So that would mean 4 adults and 2 toddlers

Second day today and it was sunny and cold again with dusty powdery snow hardpacked on piste. Didnít see a soul off piste all day, probably because itís all a bit hard under foot at the moment, off to the sides anyway.

Went over to Fieberbrunn first thing for a ski around over there, came back over to Saalbach about 2.30pm ish and skied around the Hinterglemm area until after 4 skiing down no 14 catching the bus back to Saalbach.
Another longish day covering a fair bit of ground. Had an early lunch in Fieberbrunn down the bottom in a place called Enzian Huette, had the Tiroler Groestl in there and that was very tasty. One of the best ones Iíve had actually I think.
Stopped for a beer and an early evening meal on the way back to Hinterglemm at the Wallegalm and again all very tasty.
Mind you, I donít think Iíve had any crap food in any Austrian resort Iíve been to so far to be fair.
