Just up the valley from its more famous, noisy neighbour Saalbach, Hinterglemm is a great choice for holidaymakers who want the snow and alpine experience without quite so much of the apres-ski revelling. Saalbach-Hinterglemm has a reputation for trading consistent snow cover for ample sunshine, though Hinterglemm features most of the dual-resort's north-facing runs, which hold the snow better - so powder hounds or those veering off the well-groomed slopes should head here. For the most part, however, Hinterglemm suits confident intermediates best, with many tree-lined, leisurely red and blue runs, and not too many dramatic inclines thanks to the gently sloping hills. State-of-the-art lifts, including multiple 6-man chairlifts with heated seats and windshields, move the crowds around quickly and comfortably, so bottleneck queues and crowded slopes are rarely a problem.
While the slopes are plenty big enough to accommodate visitors, the ski hire outlets in the petite valley village of Hinterglemm itself can get a little overwhelmed at busy times. But this is not a problem for customers using ALPINRESORTS.com, who can book all of their ski hire Hinterglemm gear in advance, online, then simply find it waiting for them to be adjusted to personal needs and skills at the store.
We work directly with several ski hire outlets dotted around Hinterglemm - including near the base of both the Reiterkogelbahn and Zwoelferkogelbahn lifts, so that customers can choose the most convenient location to minimise time spent getting from their accommodation to the slopes.
ALPINRESORTS.com works exclusively with ski hire outlets in Hinterglemm that have a proven track record of consistently providing top-quality, late-model products from the most trusted names in alpine sports, such as Fischer, Rossignol and Burton. All equipment is lovingly maintained by teams of expert technicians, so customers can be confident in receiving the best quality gear available, and there will be no unwelcome middle-of-the-day returns for faulty or unsatisfactory gear. Whether searching for snowboards, kids gear, trick skis, carvers, racing skis or anything else, these stores have what our customers need to ensure a successful ski holiday. Better still, ALPINRESORTS.com offers substantial price savings compared with booking ski hire in Hinterglemm in person.
Surrounded by broad, bold mountains, but basking in sunshine more often than the average alpine resort, Hinterglemm offers a very pleasant skiing and holiday experience. The altitude is relatively modest, so winter sports enthusiasts of all ages can feel comfortable on their ski holiday. There are plenty of cosy restaurants, comfortable hotels and bustling bars around Hinterglemm's centre - though those who really want to cut loose will find plenty of opportunities to do so 4km away in Saalbach. This valley has seen continuous human habitation since at least the 13th century, so there are plenty of cultural heritage sites and historical relics for those looking to learn about local culture, or simply keen for a skiing rest day.
