The small mountain village of Viehhofen is situated nearby the well-known village of Saalbach and is part of the ski area Ski Circus Saalbach / Hinterglemm / Leogang / Fieberbrunn. Between Viehhofen and Saalbach there is a ski bus and from the village of Vorderglemm (at 4 km) you can already access the ski area with the Schönleitenbahn. With enough snow-fall it is possible to ski back to Viehhofen via the 7.5 km long ski run (nr. 68). In Viehhofen there is a beginners lift with a practice run and a meeting point for the ski school.
In the quiet Viehhofen you will find a few restaurants, bars and a supermarket. More shops and apres-ski options can be found in the lively Saalbach, found at 7 km.
