Dusty powder and glittering powder snow slopes, the Hochkönig ski region also has a lot to offer when it comes to freeriding. Especially the aber is a Freeriding Hotspot and attracts with numerous ski routes. Perfect for active winter holidaymakers and adventurers!

Freeriding takes place in the open ski area and is associated with natural dangers. Keywords such as avalanche warning level, exposure, slope inclination, snow cover & emergency equipment must be considered. In the classic ski resorts, information is scarce for freeriders.

The function of the avalanche beep can be checked with the help of a built-in LVS checker. So you are guaranteed to be safely on the move.
