kaunertal freeride testival

# 3 - Kaunertal

The area

map kaunertal30 + 31 March 2019

Kaunertal Glacier is one of the best and most snow-sure freeride areas in the Alps. You can find the upper parking lot at 2.750 meters. Because of its altitude, the slopes are almost guaranteed to be covered with powder snow until late spring. And the sun enables us to spend wonderful bluebird days with pleasant temperatures until the end of March.

Thanks to its incredible size and the diversity of the area, it is possible to discover untracked slopes even days after the last snowfall.

Safety first!
Personal responsibility and experience are essential to freeriding. For that reason, the Kaunertal Glacier lift company and Risk & Fun backcountry safety organization have developed the Check your line freeride program, from which freeriders can acquire and increase knowledge by reading the information boards installed on the Weißseejoch backcountry routes.

For the reservation of your accommodation, the team of Kaunertal Tourismus  would be happy to help you (Tel.: 0043 (0) 50 225 200). Klick HERE book entire packages for the FreerideTestival including overnight stay and ski pass.
