Skiing Area in the State of Salzburg

Skiing is big business in Salzburg, and especially the two regions of Pinzgau and Pongau are economically dependent on winter tourism. Skiing areas of particular significance include the Salzburger Sportwelt, the Hochkönig area, Obertauern, the Großarltal, the Gasteinertal, the area of Zell am See / Kaprun and Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm. For each of these areas, you will find individual articles that will guide you to even more specific articles on the municipalities and communities within them. In order to diversify, skiing areas often try to add on other sports and activities: Winter hiking is shown here; but there are often also culling, skating, tobogganing, cross-country-skiing and horseback riding available. Let alone the apres ski party scenes of towns such as Obertauern or Saalbach-Hinterglemm.
