Fresh tracks in the snow

Freeriding in the Paznaun

The feeling of freedom offpiste

Freeriding in Kappl

Away from the groomed slopes, the small, family-friendly ski resort of Kappl is a real powder paradise. Skiers and snowboarders love the region’s countless backcountry descents and unrivalled mountain views. Most freeride descents can be reached from the mountain stations of the Alblittkopf and Alblitt cable cars. Feel your heartbeat quicken and dive into your unspoiled nature experience!

The first tingles start when you hop onto the chairlift towards Alblittkopf. Getting off at 2,690 metres above sea level, you can’t wait one minute longer to dive into your powder adventure. We know the feeling – but hold on for just another second! After all, the high-alpine terrain is full of potential dangers and safety always comes first!

Good to know: If you’re going off-piste, you are skiing at your own risk. If you’re a thrill seeker, it might be a good idea to take out insurance.

For your safety, Kappl has a special Freeride Checkpoint. Simply ask the staff at the mountain station of Diasbahn cable care for the location of the freeride noticeboard with up-to-the-minute avalanche warnings, snow depths and temperatures. There is also a functionality check for avalanche transceivers at the LVS Checkpoint. Better safe than sorry! 

The notorious 2,800-metre Quellspitze puts any freerider to the test. During the Open Faces Freeride Series, which has been taking place in Kappl every year since 2013, the pros tackle this challenging peak with their best tricks and lines, all in front of an expert jury. The perfect place to cheer on the freeride pros is the public area near Slope No 8 and the Kanonenabfahrt run. Watch the race on big screens accompanied by live commentary and good music. 

In addition, the Freeride Junior World Championships are the perfect stage for all freeriders under the age of 18 to show off their skills. Join the fun and wow the crowd!

Freeride areas in Ischgl

Wide slopes. Playful moguls and hollows. The Piz Val Gronda at 2,812 metres above sea level is not only the gateway to the Silvretta but also the perfect setting for casual freeriding. And those who aren’t seasoned skiers yet feel particularly at home in this freeride area. The entry point is located right off the slope and perfect for some practice. The breath-taking panoramic views over the Fimba valley and the Hoher Riffler mountain are a bonus. 

A descent through the region Ravaischer Salaas is almost like a rollercoaster ride with plenty of surprises in store for skiers and snowboarders. The starting point can be chosen depending on skill level. Once on your skis, you’ll be going down wide hillsides, narrow channels and through a ravine all the way to Samnaun in Switzerland. You’ll even pass a waterfall on your way.

Freeride areas in See

Numerous deep snow slopes and ski routes can be found in the Ascherhütte area. From the mountain station of the Versingbahn there are easy as well as challenging deep snow slopes in the immediate vicinity of slopes 30, 31 and 32.

Starting at the chairlift mountain station, you can use beautiful deep snow slopes in the immediate area of slopes 22 to 26. In terms of the incline, however, these can be described as rather demanding.

After a short ascent on touring skis (approx. 30 - 45 min.) from the mountain station of the chairlift, you can reach the Medrigjoch or the Medrigkopf. From here, many lines open up for advanced or experts. However, you should pay particular attention to the avalanche situation, as the slopes are very steep! Knowledge of the snow structure and the corresponding equipment are self-explanatory!
