You leave the secured ski area when riding on the Powder Department Runs! The runs are NOT prepared, NOT secured from avalanches (and other alpine dangers) and are NOT checked. The Powder Department Runs are – since they are open ski area - not declared open or closed.

You act exclusively at your own responsibility and are outside of the area of liability of the lift operators, which offer only the open, prepared pistes and ski routes and assume no liability whatsoever.

Freeride Runs should only be entered with a certified mountain and ski guide.

Equipment Check for Freeriding - Freeride Checkpoint at the Stubai Glacier

Freeride skiing and snowboarding is getting increasingly popular in our corner of the world. But what looks easy and beautiful on pictures requires hard work in practice and is often dangerous.  That is why we offer various courses on the topics of avalanche safety and freeride skiing and snowboarding during the season. Beginners, advanced skiers or pros – we offer something for everyone! Besides of the SportScheck Testival, where you can test the latest freeride skiing and snowboarding gear and join mini workshops, there are also other events that focus on freeride skiing and snowboarding.
