As the full name implies, the Skicircus is made up of four resort centres, each of which offers something unique. Together they offer beginners, families and experts 140 km of blue, 112 km of red and 18 km of black runs available, so cool, varied turns are guaranteed and you can quickly rack up the miles as you cruise to your heart's delight.

The area's 60 cosy huts offer the finest culinary delights and deliver that special holiday atmosphere along with stunning panoramic views of the mountains. away from the slopes, visitors can lap up the winter sunshine and surrounding views while trying their hand at a wide variety of other winter activities, such as snowshoe hikes, cross-country skiing, horse-drawn sleigh rides, tandem paragliding, ice skating, snow tubing or tobogganing!

Where is the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn?

The Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn lies partly in the Austrian region of SalzburgerLand, south west of the city of Salzburg, and also extends on both sides of the valley over the mountains of the Glemmtal, where Fieberbrunn sit in the Tyrol region.

Airport to resort transfers and car rental can be easily booked online. For those wanting to get to the Skicircus by train, both Leogang and Fieberbrunn have train stations, meaning that getting here is a breeze. 

The four villages all have their own character: Saalbach is one of Austria's most popular winter destinations; it's an attractive mountain village with great apres-ski and a host of well-groomed blue and red pistes. Hinterglemm is Saalbach's higher-altitude neighbour, renowned for its friendliness, and great facilities, especially for families and beginners. Leogang has excellent nursery slopes, great access to the wider Skicircus area and plenty of fun activities, including the mile-long Flying Fox zipline.

Why ski the Skicircus?

So what's it like skiing in the Skicircus? The Skicircus has pretty much every skiing need covered - it's great for beginners with gentle novice slopes and it's utterly brilliant for experts with some wild off-piste terrain around Fieberbrunn, especially, which is challenging enough to host the Freeride World Tour. In between, you've got mile after mile of cruisey blues and reds. The area gets its 'ski circus' name because the ski lifts are arranged so that you can ski around the valley like you’re in a circus ring.

With the Ski ALPIN CARD – the ticket alliance with the Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See and the Kitzsteinhorn Kaprun – in addition to the extensive skiing area of the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, you can ski up to 408 km of pistes.


The Skicircus is great for families - all the Skicircus ski resorts have excellent ski schools, which include a designated children’s area and ski kindergarten. Top qualified ski instructors ensure a playful start to your skiing adventures in Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, with the help of special funslopes and snowtrails. There's bags for the little ones to do once the slopes close, and there's even a Kids Winter Challenge with a cool medal for all those who complete it.
