FREERIDING IN KITZBÜHEL
Nature, the mountains and powder snow as far as the eye can see.
A fairytale-like dream that you won’t soon forget, as long as you pay attention to the rules of conduct when skiing off the slopes.
It is probably the combination of an athletic challenge, the wonder of nature and the feeling of unlimited freedom that fascinates ski mountaineers, off-piste skiers and freeriders.
You can easily head up to the mountain with the Kitzbühel lifts – and from there starts your thrilling off-piste experience. You can also start your adventure down in the valley by enjoying a more strenuous yet rewarding ascent with your skis up to the magical world of the Kitzbühel Alps.
However, you need to be fundamentally aware of Alpine dangers if you’re to safely enjoy your free-skiing kick.
For example, all freeriders need to be skilled in their skiing style, have the right equipment and be knowledgeable about the basic rules of conduct off the slopes.
And remember: never ski off-piste alone! The best way to enjoy freeriding is with a professional guide who not only knows where to find the best routes and snow conditions, but also always has some tips to offer on skiing techniques.

Being able to enjoy unspoilt nature in all of its beauty and diversity is one of the greatest privileges there is. That’s why we are obliged to take care of nature and treat the natural environment well, so that generations to come will also be able to fully enjoy it.
Special forest and protected zones designated as such are therefore completely off-limits to freeriders.
Our mountains and forests are indeed a recreational area that we should fully enjoy – but we should also display the utmost respect for the plants and animals that populate them.
