Leogang Ski Resort

Leogang is a quiet, attractive village with great access to the vast Skicircus and the resorts of Saalbach and Fieberbrunn.

The local slopes above the village are amongst the quietest in the area and many won’t even need to explore the rest of the 270km network of linked slopes. But if you do, expect some varied skiing, long descents and uphill travel via arguably the world’s best lift system – most of the lifts are fast gondolas or high-capacity chairlifts.

With so much terrain to explore, why not let Ski Club Freshtracks take the strain and help you to discover this fantastic ski area this season?

Leogang Skiing and Snowboarding

Access to the local Asitz mountain above the village is via two gondolas, but absolute beginners will want to stick to the valley’s learning areas. Long runs drop back down to the village through the woods – these can be a blast first thing in the morning when freshly groomed. From the summit, three fast 8-seater chairs and a 6-pack serve short, gentle slopes but more importantly link in with the Saalbach valley.

Once in the Saalbach valley, a vast network of pistes opens up. These are mostly well-groomed blues and reds – of which the long blue 2b is a favourite. Advanced skiers should head to the steep, ungroomed slopes above Fieberbrunn – you can get here either by skiing via Hinterglemm and the TirolS gondola or by catching a bus up the valley from Leogang – or to the steep groomed pistes beneath Schattberg.

Leogang Resort

Compared to the bustle and buzz of Saalbach and Hinterglemm, Leogang is a much quieter base from which to explore the Skicircus. Family-run hotels – most of which are well equipped with spa facilities – dominate the accommodation offering and most are only a stone’s throw away from the lifts.

Away from the slopes, cross country skiing and winter walking are major attractions here. Just up the valley is Hochfilzen, host each year to the Biathlon World Cup, which is home to some of Austria’s best cross country routes.
