What we love about Leogang
The amazing lifts system, which is super-fast and links several different ski areas, so you can really make the most of each day’s skiing.
Salzburg Airport is just an hour away, while Innsbruck airport is less than two hours away. Both Saalfelden and Leogang have railway stations.
With an altitude of 830 to 2,096m, there’s such a wealth of areas to adventure in and you should find what you’re looking for somewhere. The north-facing home slopes hold on to the snow very well. There are also 9km of slopes with snowmaking available and 353 snow cannons.
Just above the village are some really quiet slopes, and you can access the Asitz mountain via two gondolas with relative ease. There’s much to enjoy here, and many don’t bother to explore much further than this.
However, should you choose to, Leogang allows you to access 270km of linked slopes via one of the world’s most impressive and whizzy lifts system. From the top of the Asitz there are long runs down to the village through the forests as well as fast lifts that take you up to gentler slopes and link in with the Saalbach valley. From here, you have the choice of a huge number of red and blue runs.
If you’re after a challenge, head for the slopes above Fierbrunn. Beginners will want to stay close to the training areas. For intermediate level skiers, however, there’s plenty to keep you busy all week.
Best places to eat and drink
Leogang is known for its cosy mountain restaurants with fabulous views. Almost wherever you are in the Ski Circus region, you’ll find somewhere to stop for a little lunch or some après ski. The Asitzbrau mountain restaurant at the Asitzbahn and Steinbergbahn lift station always has a lively atmosphere, along with brewhouse style food, and for authentic local food and a rustic feel, try Die AlteSchmiede nearby.
For a meal to remember, we always recommend the award-winning Restaurant Kirchenwirt, which has an amazing wine list, or the local, family-style menu at Huttwirt.
Head (along with everyone else) to the Kraller Alm at the Hotel Kraller for après ski.
