Two new ski circuits ensure that you have plenty of variety on your winter holiday
12 Peaks Tour
Thanks to the new connecting Panorama Link between Snow Space Salzburg and the neighbouring ski resorts of Flachauwinkl and Zauchensee, winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy skiing on 12 peaks, down 5 valleys and over 210 kilometres of slopes in the winter season of 2020/21. Whoever manages to conquer all 12 peaks during their ski holiday, will receive a special surprise before they go home.
The entry point of the 12 Peaks Tour in St. Johann is the Alpendorf cable car.
Hermann Maier Tour
Ski legend Hermann Maier is not only the brand ambassador of Snow Space Salzburg, he has also created his own ski circuit across his favourite ski area. In the tracks of the ski star, you are guided to the most beautiful places, the sporty highlights and to the best panoramic views in Snow Space Salzburg. Whoever manages to complete all of the action points, automatically takes part in the Snow Space Salzburg Challenge and can win great prizes every month.
The entry point of the Hermann Maier Tour in St. Johann is the Gernkogelbahn lift.
Straight onto the slope to St. Johann
What sets Snow Space Salzburg apart from other ski resorts is not only its diversity, but also its easy accessibility
With three motorway exits – Flachau, Flachauwinkel and Pongau, skiers can get off the A10 motorway to the ski lifts in only a few minutes, without even having to drive along steep mountain roads or narrow valley roads. As a special service for our day guests and also our city holiday-makers, we have a ski bus from Salzburg city which goes straight to Flachau, and this every day and free of charge! The ski bus makes three stops in Salzburg city and then picks the skiers back up in the afternoon at 4pm from the bottom station of Spacejet. The main train station, St. Johann im Pongau is accessible without even having to change, from many large German and Austrian cities. After every train comes in, ski buses take the skiers directly to Alpendorf.
