Freeriding = sheer freedom!

Freeriding can be extreme – but it does not have to be. It is much more about the search for a perfect trail. Only one person will be able to determine the level of difficulty of the descent: the skiier. Back to the roots – when skiing was ‘invented’, there were no pistes; only steep mountain slopes and gentle inclines. Glittering powder snow, freshly fallen and fluffy – these dream conditions offer numerous variations on a descent in Obertauern. Characterised by steep slopes, rock formations and wide fields, the environment is perfect for your freeriding experience with the CSA Silvia Grillitsch Skiing School.

The south-facing freeriding terrain is in the vicinity of the Seekar-cable car. As a result of the many variants and numerous tours that may be selected between the piste descents, it is a diverse freeriding experience for all lovers of deep powder snow.

Level of difficulty: medium
distance: 2,1 km

In the direction of the Kehrkopfbahn, you will have an easy freeriding tour with few ascents. Due to the breadth of the slopes, you will also still find a great deal of untracked terrain in peak season. Tip: Park your car at the lower Kehrkopfbahn station, because this is where you will arrive on completing your tour.

Watch out for avalanche reports! Basic knowledge is absolutely essential!
