Sick turns & secret lines in the freeride paradise
"Powder Dreams" between Saalbach, Hinterglemm, Leogang and Fieberbrunn
It snowed all night. The alarm goes off as it is still dark outside. You have to be an early bird with conditions like that. But, there is still time for a good and extensive breakfast. Michi is up already and prepares and amazing breakfast buffet for his guests - he's frying some eggs. You wants to have a long day in the powder, needs some energy in the morning. Before the sun rises, it is time to meet the guide - you can see your breath, while the sun sends it's first sunbeams to the mountain peaks. At your first couple of turns on this freeride day it comes to your mind - this will be the best day of freeriding of this season. Thank god you are in the skicircus today and thank got there is the TirolS gondola ...
A huge selection of freeride-runs
Is waiting for freeriders in the skicircus. Since the new TirolS gondola started operating there is much to see. The gondola takes you right inside the freeride-mekka around the Freeride-Worldtour-Destination Fieberbrunn. Be prepared for some sick turns, steep faces and crazy rides through untouched powder. Due to the new gondola-connection you will find a huge selection of freeride descents in the region. There was always this question, if there are some good runs down the Reiterkogel or the Hochalm - in the worst case, you would have ended up trapped in the valley. Now you just ski out the valley until you reach the Fieberbrunn ski resort and the base of the TirolS gondola. Some local experts, approved mountain- & ski guides and even a new freeride skischool, take you to the best runs and secret turns between Saalbach and Fieberbrunn.
Who searches for powder,
Will find good conditions and untouched faces. AND the better the conditions, the higher are the safety risks. In the open freeride-area there are a couple of challenges, than should be considered. Nature and mountains must not be underestimated - especially in winter. Apart from avalanches, there are also changing weather conditions and problems with orientation waiting for motivated freeriders.
Here are some tips how "to be on the safe side" in the freeride area:
- Check the weather report - changing conditions come quickly in the mountains
- Check the avalanche report
- Don't forget the safety-equipment - beacon, probe, shovel are just the basics
- Know-How is everything - practice the use of the equipment
- Tell the Hotel Sommerer front-desk where you're about to heading
- Save the most important emergency numbers in your cell phone
- Check for warm clothes, gloves, dukes, helmet aso.
- Take enough to eat and drink with you - you might need some energy
- If you are smart, you say NO to faces, that do not look very save to you

"In the heart of the Tirol, in a traditional atmosphere, the hospitality of the Pillerseetal Valley and its local FWT fans remains unparalleled. This is the only stage of the Freeride World Tour in Austria, recognized worldwide as the top nation of skiing. The mythical North face of Wildseeloder (2118 m) is one of the jewels of the Austrian freeride terrain with a fast and technical 50 degrees gradient.
