Saalbach-Hinterglemm is a town in the Austrian state of Salzburg. The region is a part of the Kitzbüheler Alpen. The highest point is Spielberghorn (2,044 m) in the north and Hochkogel (2,249 m) in the south. Saalbach offers a wide range of runs, and extensive off pistes. It is known as one of Austria’s premier ski resorts.
Saalbach is primarily orientated towards tourism. For a long time up into the 20th century it was just a poor agrarian community. A lasting increase in prosperity did not occur until after World War I, but started primarily after the tourists began arriving in 1945. Saalbach and Hinterglemm are separate villages and their centres are4km apart but in 1987 they became one town now known as Saalbach-Hinterglemm.
British Skiers may know Saalbach-Hinterglemm as it has also been the venue for the British University Snowsports Championships (BUSC) and the British Royal Air Force championships on several occasions with great success.
