Freeriding in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl
Powder heaven calling!
One-of-a-kind powder action: when it comes to freeriding, the Diamond of the Alps once more lives up to its name. Thanks to its high altitude location and absolute snow reliability, powder aficionados and freeride beginners can look forward to a true winter-white playground from November to April. And it's also appreciated by the elite of ski & snowboard freeriders who meet at the OPEN FACES 4* Freeride Contest in the rear Ötztal each spring. Unlike the pros, you'll be spared a long and exhausting ascent as many of the runs start right next to the ski slopes. Or can be reached in a few seconds by short, lift-supported ascents: Hike. Ride. Repeat!
