Who needs Canada when holy grounds are at your doorstep? In Saalbach-Hinterglemm, free riders, downhill-experts and mountain bikers alike will all find their joy on a network of rides that spans 400 kilometers (250 miles). You’ll find incredible day tours through the mountains if you’re looking to collect altitude and numerous trails of all difficulty levels if you prefer the long way down. The whole experience is accompanied by fantastic panoramas wherever you look, as well as numerous alpine huts where you can replenish your energy ready for the next adventure.

    The X-Line is a demanding single trail. Over meadow, stone and forest floors, it goes down with lots of jumps, berms and tricky roots and technical passages. If you already have experience, this trail promises a high fun factor. The trail is about six kilometers long and, with over 1,000 meters of altitude, is one of the longest freeride routes in Europe, and is a lot of fun.
