Freeriding on the Hochkönig - Pure freedom

Powder snow and glistening deep snow slopes

Freeriding - A feeling of being alive

Freeriding is more than just a sport, it is a feeling of unlimited freedom. More and more often, skiers and snowboarders are heading out into the wilderness in search of unprepared slopes where there are no limits - aside from your individual ability level. 
Powder and glistening deep snow slopes: the Hochkönig ski region has much to offer when it comes to freeriding. The Aberg is a freeriding hotspot that attracts skiers with numerous ski routes. Perfect for an active winter vacation and adventure!

 The Hochkönig ski region is equipped with RECCO secure system.

An adventure with safety - Freeride info point

Freeriding takes place away from the slopes and comes with its own natural dangers. You have to take into consideration such things as avalanche alert levels, exposure, slope gradient, snow cover, and emergency equipment. In classic ski areas, information for freeriders is in short supply. Not so in the Hochkönig ski region.  Find out about the most popular freeride routes on the mountain and the up-to-date avalanche risk at the freeride info point at the summit station of the Aberg gondola. With the help of the built-in avalanche beacon checker, you can make sure that your avalanche transceiver is working. Safety is thus guaranteed while you are out and about.

Freeriding in the Hochkönig ski area in Salzburg

On the DYNAFIT ski touring trail on the Hochkeil in Mühlbach, beginners will receive tips for correct technique for the ascent and pointers for proper conduct in open terrain. A wonderful panorama awaits you after an hour's ascent.

The ski run then follows either via the prepared natural snow slopes or one of the Salewa ski routes through the deep snow. Once you have skied down, you have the opportunity to practice on a search field with an avalanche transceiver.
