WHITE PEARL MOUNTAIN DAYS 2023 - ALPINE LIFESTYLE AT ITS FINEST
Sun, ski, sound and the best culinary delights on the mountain at the most relaxed sun skiing event in the Alps: since last Friday, the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn has been all about the White Pearl Mountain Days presented by Visa.
The White Pearl Mountain Days 2023 kicked off with a bang last Friday, 24 March 2023. 270 km of fantastically prepared slopes, cool sounds and a relaxed atmosphere made the first weekend the best spring shred in the Alps.
Right from the start, the individual locations were stormed by numerous fans of the White Pearl Mountain Days. “The start of this year's White Pearl Mountain Days was absolutely brilliant and we are proud to be able to set strong accents for sporty spring skiing in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn with this unique event. Our guests not only enjoy great skiing days, but also cool beats, top culinary delights and a great social programme," says Manuel Hirner, Managing Director of Bergbahnen Saalbach-Hinterglemm.
The perfect skiing day in the “Home of Lässig”
Sun skiing, entertainment, culinary delights and active lifestyle - this combination is the recipe for success of the White Pearl Mountain Days. In the morning, carve the pistes in the Skicircus in perfect conditions, until you eventually enjoy the brilliant spring skiing weather in the afternoon in a deck chair and fill up on vitamin D in the sun. The spring-like temperatures offer the perfect ambience for unique sun skiing moments.
This year's White Pearl Mountain Days opened with DJ Tom Pool and the young opera singer Sophie Schwerthöffer (known from the RTL show "Das Supertalent" and various operas) at the legendary Xandl Stadl in Hinterglemm: There, the opening shot rang out for 10 days of "Alpine Lifestyle" with more than 80 international DJs and live acts, a diverse fitness programme for winter sports enthusiasts as well as culinary specialities at the highest level - and all that with free admission!
Marco Pointner, CEO of Saalfelden Leogang Touristik GmbH, is delighted: "The White Pearl Mountain Days in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn provide 10 days of opportunity to celebrate spring skiing with all its benefits. We see the White Pearl Mountain Days as the perfect addition to sun skiing. After skiing in the spring snow, it's time to put your feet up and enjoy the culinary and musical delights of the High Noon and Sundowner Sessions. We are especially pleased with this year's international line-up. Star DJs like Jan Blomqvist, known from Burning Man, Coachella and Tomorrowland, are joining us this year."
The first weekend already lots to offer
On Saturday, the Swiss DJ legend Jamie Lewis (2017 Grammy Award nominee) and Paul Lomax with numerous live acts (vocal, electric guitar, violin) created a great atmosphere at the Reiteralm in Hinterglemm. On Sunday, DJ, producer, singer and songwriter Marten Lou thrilled the audience at “Der Schwarzacher”. Rayco Santos also performed at the Hendlfischerei in Leogang in front of an impressive mountain backdrop. The international but also national DJ line-up including the many live acts already attracted numerous visitors to the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn on the first weekend.
"We are proud to be the presenting partner of the White Pearl Mountain Days in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn for the first time. Together with Anna Veith, our local partner, we have planned some eventful days on site and will show how convenient, easy and secure it is to pay with Visa while skiing - from the gondola to the food at the mountain hut," explains Stefanie Ahammer, Country Manager Visa Austria about the new partnership.
Active lifestyle as the perfect match for sun skiing, entertainment and culinary delights.
