Freeriding adventure

More and more people are looking for thrills away from the secured pistes.

Avalanche transceiver checkpoint Steinbergkogel

Fresh snow – and the quest for perfect powder begins. Everyone wants to be the first to ski the glistening powder snow slope. In addition to the technical skills, freeriding demands a high degree of responsibility, not just for one's own safety, but also for the safety of other people.

Knowing and abiding by the rules off the secured pistes and also being able to assess avalanche risks correctly are paramount. An understanding of Alpine dangers, knowing about the latest avalanche report and carrying the relevant equipment are also top priorities.
