The Challenge

Ski your limit

The Skicircus challenges its guests with THE MOST DEMANDING ski circuit.

„Ski your limit“ is the slogan that describes one of the most demanding ski circuits of the Alps – „The Challenge“. The key figures speak for themselves: 65 kilometres, 32 lifts, 12,400 meters in height and approx. 7 hours skiing time! The „Skicircus Circuit“ in the „Home of Lässig“ is doable within 7 hours for ambitious skiers – a quick lunch break not included. Challenge accepted?


This is how it works:

Register at, use all 32 lifts and then receive a QR code by email to collect your reward at one of the cable car ticket offices. You will also automatically be entered into the prize draw for cool main prizes!


Important: “The Challenge” can be started at any cable car. In the end, it just matters if you passed all 32 mentioned cable cars.


Key figures:

  • Duration: approx. 7 hours without breaks
  • Length: approx. 65 km
  • Altitude covered: approx. 12,400 m
  • Gradient: Ø 191 m / km
  • Lifts: 32
  • Difficulty: 60 % blue, 35 % red, 5 % black


Please note that in the early and late season or due to weather or other operating circumstances, individual lifts of "The Challenge" may not be open. You can find an up-to-date overview of the lifts and pistes in operation in our interactive piste map below.


To create a measurable experience for “Slope Hunters” and “Endurance Skiers”, it's possible to track the circuit and review it on the website. Here the meters in height, lifts and piste kilometres are saved as height chart and might become a challenge for the next contender.


Every successful “challenger”, who registers online on and presents the QR code received by e-mail, will receive a small price at the main cash-points. 


Among all participants three main prices will also be randomly drawn at the end of the season:


First prize:

One week stay including ski tickets for 2 persons in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn


Second prize:

One weekend stay including ski tickets for 2 persons in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn


Third prize:

6 day ski pass for the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn
