Flow-Master with airtime-guarantee

The Hacklberg Trail from the Schattberg in Saalbach over the Westgipfel summit to Hinterglemm is one of the most beautiful singletrails in the valley, and is known throughout Austria as the epitome of a flowing trail. But work comes before pleasure here, in the form of a demanding climb that has to be overcome before being able to enjoy the extra-long descent.

This natural, flowing trail begins right beside the top station of the Westgipfel lift, and heads off down towards the Hacklberg Alm along a grassy ridge. It offers plenty of opportunity for speed, as well as having some berms, smaller jumps, and numerous rollers providing you with plenty of opportunity for airtime. Thanks to its gentle gradient, beginners can enjoy it as well as experts.

For summer 2014 there is a new trail planned from the Hacklberg Alm to the mid station of the Westgipfel lift and the start of the Buchegg Trail. The planned middle section in combination with the existing Hacklberg Trail and the final Buchegg Trail provides 1000 vertical metres of the finest in single trails, and about 10 km of downhill riding.
