The neighbouring villages of Saalbach and Hinterglemm have always been PGL’s most popular Austrian destination. A superb lift system covers both sides of the Glemm Valley, it can be skied in either direction with the added bonus of a free shuttle bus operating during the day along the Saalbach - Hinterglemm road. The area also boasts some of the most reliable snow conditions in the country.
Since 2000, €432m has been invested by the lift companies to improve comfort and convenience. The all-new TirolS 10-seater gondola now connects Saalbach to the neighbouring resort of Fieberbrunn (a hidden treasure of a resort), linking the Salzburg and Tyrol regions.
A new 10-seater cable car with a capacity of 3200 guests per hour, replaces the old Schönleitenbahn in Saalbach. The 12er Express is a new 10-seater cable car which connects the Zwölferkogel and the lifts in the Westgipfel area. Last but not least, the Oberschwarzachlift has been reconstructed as a double-drag lift.
