The top freeride areas of Ischgl

Piz Val Gronda and Ravaischer Salaas

With the Piz Val Gronda located at 2,812 metres above sea level and the Ravaischer Salaas area, two varied freeride areas are waiting for you in Ischgl.

Piz Val Gronda for leisure freeriders

Wide descents, playful crests and troughs: Piz Val Gronda is a perfect spot for freeriders that don’t have decades of experience. The starting point is located right beside the groomed slopes, making it a great practice area. Plus, you get to enjoy stunning views of the entire Fimba valley and Hohe Riffler mountain.

Ravaischer Salaas for individualists

Riding the Ravaischer Salaas area is like a rollercoaster ride. You can choose your starting point according to your skill level. The line takes you across wide descents, narrow draws and a ravine that runs all the way to Samnaun in Switzerland. There’s even a waterfall along the way!

Freeriding in Kappl

Safety in the backcountry

The small, family-friendly ski resort of Kappl is a freeride paradise away from the groomed slopes. Almost all freeride descents can be reached from the mountain station of Alblittkopfbahn or Alblittbahn cable car respectively.

To ensure safe backcountry adventures, there is a special Freeride Checkpoint at Kappl ski resort. The noticeboard indicating the current avalanche risk level, snow depth and temperature is located at the mountain station of Diasbahn cable car. There’s also an avalanche transceiver checkpoint where you can test your equipment.

Event tip: The annual Open Faces Freeride Series in Kappl is a highlight for avid freeriders.
