Peacefully crossing the snow-covered fields of Saalbach-Hinterglemm
Winter hiking and snowshoe hiking
270 km of fun on the slopes in Austria's largest skiing area are one argument, but the opportunities for winter sports are not exhausted by a long chalk with that. Alternative winter activities such as snowshoe and winter hiking are perfect for anyone who wants to turn their back on the hustle and bustle on the slopes.
Whether just with solid hiking shoes or with large flat snowshoes: hikes through the snowy winter landscape of the Skicircus are a real pleasure and reveal totally new views over the winter sports region in the Kitzbühel Alps.
40 kilometres for winter hiking
Lots of hiking trails that you are familiar with from the summer also bring joy to a hiker's heart in the winter too and reveal a whole new attraction under their blanket of white snow. You can walk 40 kilometres of winter hiking trails and be whisked away to a quiet world far from the ski resort.
Far away from the hustle and bustle and everyday hectic, your mind gets a chance to rest while you hear nothing but the sound of crunching snow. Untouched nature wrapped in its winter blanket exudes pure tranquillity and peace. Your breath turns white in the cool air. But it's not much further: you can already see the warm light of the mountain hut ahead of you. Now you can look forward to something really special: a warming mulled wine.
Guided snowshoe hikes
Anyone who like hiking in a group or would like to be shown the most stunning routes, can simply register for a guided snowshoe hike at the Skischule Saalbach. You head into the snowy landscape far away from the slopes and cross-country skiing trails. This healthy winter activity is suitable for all age groups and offers a real alternative to skiing or cross-country skiing.
The right equipment
You basically don't need anything more than warm, sporty winter clothing and solid hiking boots for a winter hike on one of the paved hiking routes. By contrast, snowshoes are recommended in deep snow. These are strapped under your boots and prevent you from sinking into the snow due to the large soles.
At the Hotel DAS ZWÖLFERHAUS next to the slopes you are at the centre of the (skiing) action: situated right in the middle of the ski resort you enjoy short distances whether you're drawn to the slopes or the cross-country skiing trails and winter hiking trails. We look forward to seeing you: we will be happy to respond to your non-binding enquiry with a great holiday offer!
