Significant changes have developed over the last months – COVID-19 has influenced our way of life worldwide. The safety and personal health of every person are, more than ever at the forefront of our minds, including that of our lift companies. We are establishing, based on the regulations of the Austrian Federal Government, a series of measures to protect all guests and employees.


Our summer season 2020 experience

Here in Saalbach Hinterglemm, we are happy how the good the summer season has been! We have been able to welcome guests to our resort since the middle of June, and the summer season progressed nicely. Our high-quality accommodation and our cool summer sports and recreation facilities have brought us many visitors who have been able to spend the most beautiful days of the year with us without any worries. We and our guests have learned to deal with the situation. Always alert, but without worries! We are well prepared for the coming winter.


For everyone’s safety

Please respect our Covid-19 Code of Conduct, which is continuously updated to reflect the current situation and any changes in legal or regulatory requirements.  



In compliance with the current valid regulations and additional safety measures, we firmly believe that you can relax and enjoy your winter days in our cross-border network, with 121 lifts, and 408 kilometres of piste with incorporated safety distance measures. In addition, there are 23 lifts operating from the valley stations ensuring a smooth ascent into the ski region and Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See and Kitzsteinhorn Kaprun.

The lift companies have set up a comprehensive package of measures for your safety including the implementation of tubular scarves and masks MNP (mouth and nose protectors), organised queuing areas, hygiene and disinfection measures, employee screenings and much more.




In Austria, the wearing of a mouth and nose protector is currently mandatory in the following public areas
  • Retail food sector (supermarkets, bakeries, etc.)

We all know how important social contact is. Getting to know people or exchanging ideas after sports is simply part of the winter holiday experience.
