The Skicircus announces its Easter Special
The Easter holidays are steadily approaching and are bringing rising temperatures and easing restrictions with them. Conditions couldn’t be better for an epic family holiday in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, which will remain open to winter sports enthusiasts until April 18.
Easter really is one of the best times to visit the mountains. Drawing lines in the snow with your kids in the morning or handing the youngsters off into the skilled hands of the ski schools before meeting back up for lunch in the warm sunshine on the terrace of one of the many mountain restaurants, followed by an afternoon spent exploring the many activities and attractions outside of the pistes – the warming temperatures and longer days are made to enjoy an active yet relaxing holiday in some of the most epic landscapes Europe has to offer.
Slopes for young and old
Things usually quiet down in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn towards the end of the winter season. But quieter does definitely not equal boring. In this case, quieter means more relaxed, an opportunity to be a little bit more lazy amongst all the fun. And fun there is in spades. Kids and beginners are spoiled for choice between dozens of perfectly shaped beginner-slopes with easy gradients that can optionally be explored with guides or instructors from the ski schools, while those more advanced can embark on a tour around the entire valley whilst enjoying stunning views from the peaks of the Zwölferkogel, Westgipfel, Schattberg, Schönleiten and Asitz mountains.
All that outdoor fun in the fresh mountain air is a sure-fire way to work up an appetite, though. Lucky enough, there are dozens of mountain huts and restaurants offering finest local and international cuisine waiting to be explored. Adding to the potential for fun and exploration, Fieberbrunn’s lifts, slopes and Timoks Alpine Coaster will be open throughout the Easter Holidays as well. There’s also good news for all the early birds that can’t wait to be the first on the slopes – a selection of lifts will be opening as early as 8am daily.
There’s plenty to explore and do outside of the ski area as well. Cozy rides on horse-drawn sleds, a walk over the spectacular Tree Top Trail and the ‘Golden Gate Bridge of the Alps’, a hike with lamas, a choice between five different several kilometer-long toboggan runs and much, much more create a fairytale-like winter adventure. Of course, there’s something for the adrenaline junkies out there as well. How about giving paragliding a go or heading to Leogang’s Flying Fox XXL – one of the world’s longest zip lines that reaches speeds up to 130 km/h (80mph)?
Easter Bonus – free ski pass for children
Extend your stay and save money. Starting April 9, kids and teens born in 2006 or after get a free ski pass with the purchase of a 4-day pass or longer by their parents. As usual, small children (born 2016 or after) also enjoy the miniAlpin Card for free.
Parents with young children enjoy even more benefits with the Alpin Card. The unique card for families allows parents to take turns hitting the slopes using just one card. For a fee of 15 Euros parents can take turns enjoying the mountain while the other watches the kids without having to pay for two separate lift tickets. It’s never been easier to combine parenting with fun on the slopes. The Family Card is available for parents of children aged three or under.
