Skicircus Circuits

The cooperation with Fieberbrunn lift company enabled the extension of the skiing route range in the Skicircus. The key figures of the Skicircus circuit are impressive: The lifts make it possible to experience the slopes of the Skicircus locations Saalbach, Hinterglemm, Leogang and Fieberbrunn and traverses 65 km and 12,400 metres in altitude.
