Planning to visit Saalbach 11.07.2020-18.07.2020.
Could someone reccomend some cheap normal accomodation (with Joker card) there?
Not a problem if it will be at 1-2 km from central point with all the local lifts.
https://www.saalbach.com/saalbach-booking/Query?AR=1&FL=100&LG=1&RA=2&AM=1 - lot of options, so I'd rather take some real advices.

Also, question about Joker, https://www.saalbach.com/en/summer/joker-card - I'm confused: will I be able to use for free lifts at Saalbach WITH bike?

2 x daily free bike transport at any gondola lift in Saalbach Hinterglemm or Leogang
Biking without limits in Austria'a largest bike region: 30% discount on all bike tickets for unlimited use incl. bike transport with up to 8 gondolas in Saalbach Hinterglemm and the Epic Bikepark Leogang

What does it mean? Only 2 lifts per day for free if I lift WITH bike?

Pretty much all accomodation will be near a lift of some sort.
It depends more on which lifts you prefer to ride more and whether you might need to pedal back to your room at the end of the day, as long as you book in Saalbach or Hinterglemm.
As for the Joker Card, they changed things around a bit. It used to be unlimited in SH, but only one per day in Leogang. Seems like you need to buy a ticket now if you wanna ride all day.

not a problem to pedal back if it's about 1-2 km.

Jasminov, cheap is a realtive term - particularly on a bike website! Please be a bit more specific about budget requirements.
Ive stayed in lots of places there that give the joker card, one example would be https://www.saalbach-pension.at/ it was like 40eurish with breakfast and joker card.

Last season at least that joker card you could ride all day in saalbach on the card.
Leongang, as Loki said, was like 1 run only.

[Quote="Loki87"]Not all the lifts are open in the summer. But as far as i know, with the joker card all lifts that are open can be used.
Basically there are just 4 lifts in Saalbach and Hinterglemm. One for Pro-/Blue Line. One for Z-Line. one for Milka-Line and Panorama-Trail and last one for X-Line, Hacklbergtrail and Bergstadl Trail.
Then of course there´s the Big 5 Challenge, which includes some of the lifts in leogang. With the joker card, you can use those ONCE a day (to complete the Big 5 Challenge).

I´m in Saalbach-Hinterglemm on a regular basis, but for me it´s only a relatively short drive from salzburg so i don´t know that much about accomodation and all the things you can do with the joker card. It´s quite a good deal though, as you get free entry into the local swimming bath and some other activities plus many discounts.
Like i said, give them a call, they are very experienced with bikers and should be able to tell you what suits you best.

As a tip, i´d try to get accomodation in Saalbach as from there you can ride the Hacklberg or Bergstadl Trail to Hinterglemm and then get back to Saalbach on the road downhill instead of uphill from Saalbach to Hinterglemm.

This summer I was in Saalbach too, but we went up to Hackleberg trail by lift from Hinterglem. Rather then pushing bikes uphill from x line which take you 15-20 min
