Saalbach mountain huts
The Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn is beloved in the skiing and snowboarding world as one of Austria’s top ski areas. Lengthy ski circuits, plenty of activities for families and a rousing après-ski scene place the Skicircus squarely on the alpine map. But all the skiing and other activities can get exhausting, and it’s important to take a break to refuel every now and again! With more than 70 mountain restaurants, the choice can be overwhelming. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite 8 mountain huts at the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn so you can embark on your very own culinary ski safari.
Located at the mountain station of the Schattberg X-press, the Sky Rest was recommended to us by one of Saalbach's ski instructors. The window tables offer a fantastic view over the mountain landscapes and when the weather is nice, you can sit on the terrace outside. The restaurant serves delicious Tyrolean dishes for a reasonable price.

You’ll find the Bergstadl mountain restaurant halfway down piste #6, a challenging slope that leads towards Hinterglemm. This beautiful traditional cabin has a lovely terrace with an umbrella bar, as well as plenty of inside seating. One of the Bergstadl’s specialties is Schiwasser, a syrupy drink made from summer ingredients that are also used for Schnapps.

Heading along blue piste F6a in the direction of the F4, you’ll pass right by the Wildalpgatterl mountain restaurant. Early in the morning, all sorts of delicious smells emanate from the restaurant’s wood-fired oven. And if you’re there around noon, you might bump into a couple of llamas on the terrace – you can go on a llama safari in Fieberbrunn! The kitchen serves up rustic Tyrolean cuisine.

The Pulvermacherscherm mountain restaurant opened after the inauguration of the Tirol S gondola and is located right at the junction between the Saalbach and Fieberbrunn ski resorts.

The Ferchstadl mountain lodge is halfway down blue piste F2 in Fieberbrunn and offers a warm place to hang your hat. You can choose from an inside window seat, a place at the bar or a table outside on the terrace.

The Edelweiss Alm and the Panorama Alm are an inseparable pair and you’ll find them both just off blue piste #55. The sun loungers on the terrace at the Edelweiss Alm are your go-to for a quick bite, a coffee break or the first après-ski drink. If you fancy a nice lunch, head to the Panorama Alm and dine with magnificent views of Saalbach.

If you’re crazy about schnitzel, then you have to make a pilgrimage to the Sonnalm near blue piste 34a, where large, crispy slabs of meat await you. Besides schnitzel the Sonnalm also serves soups, burgers and charcuterie – and, of course, traditional Austrian käsespätzle and Tyrolean gröstl.

Born and raised in the ski paradise of Vancouver, Canada, I learned to ski before I can remember, balancing precariously on my parents’ skis as they sailed down the hill. I started snowboarding in my teens and am now delighted to be exploring everything Europe’s ski scene has to offer!
