Skiing Regions of Salzburg

This picture was taken from a mountain on the northern edge of the Alps, overlooking the city of Salzburg and allowing some glances to the south. Once you leave Salzburg City and dive into the mountain scenery to its south, you will soon get to the more "family friendly" and less cowded skiing regions of Dachstein West, the Tennengebirge and the Lammertal. "Serious Skiing" starts in the Ski Amade regions, most importantly those of the Salzburger Sportwelt, but also in Obertauern, the Hochkönig area, the Großarltal and the Gasteinertal Valleys. The other "hearlands" of the Salzburg skiing regions are accessed via Germany, the most important ones being the Skicircus (which includes Saalbach-Hinterglemm and Leogang) as well as Zell-am-See/Kaprun.
