One of the best! 02/02/2014
One of the best ski holidays ever was our trip to Saalbach. Having skied many French resorts, a good few Italian, and Swiss over the years, I was not disappointed by Saalbach. Plenty of good skiing for us intermediates and enjoyed some of the blacks too! Some links needed a bit of walking, not due to lack of snow - it hardly stopped, just due to the lay of the land! Brilliant apres-ski - go to the Goat Hut, dance on the table, then watch everyone try to ski down the slope to the road!
Skiing/Snowboarding: 4/5 Apres Ski: 5/5

Review 10/01/2009
I booked through Iglu Ski for a party of four at Hotel Club Riegler, Saalbach over the Christmas week and was very impressed with the service they gave. The travel documents were sent promptly and found the online payment service and website extremely easy and better to use than any of the others.

The transfer from Salzburg airport was over 2 hours (Although the rep stated 1 and a half), and the hotel was about 8 minutes walk to the town and slopes, and at the base of a steep 30m driveway (Buy a set of CAT TRACKS for your ski boots and a strap for your skis if you are staying here). The hotel did load our kit onto a trailor and take it up the hill though.

We arrived at the hotel and I was pleased to hear that they fitted boots and skis the same evening IN the hotel, which was a far easier and better option than going to the ski shops the first morning of the holiday and wasting time. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful however, and food was of an adaquate standard, the hotel manager Paul was a very helpful and polite American chap that always made an effort to say hello and ask how things were. The ski resort is at 1000m but the snow blowers and piste bashers are always busy though and the slopes are fantastic the following morning. Not many black runs, but the reds and blues are generally harder than they are graded, so quite challenging. The best area to ski was the northwest slopes at Hinterglemm, the competent slopes are fantastic in the morning as they are pisted lovely and long, with plenty of local competent skiers, the views are amazing.

As learners, Saalbach has a fantastic beginners area based in the centre of town, unused by competent skiers. This had all the facilities and button lifts to accomodate learners, very impressed, great resort to learn in.

Iglu Ski service was very good. 6/10 for the hotel, 9/10 for learners, 6/10 for competent skiers, 8/10 for 'lads holiday' .
