Freeriding has become one of the most popular kinds of skiing over recent years, for guests wanting to experience more "off-piste" than "on-piste" skiing, they will not be disappointed. There are countless possibilities in the Zillertal vally, most of them reachable direct from the ski resorts.

Some ski resorts leave big parts of the area unprepared, so freeriders have their playgrounds without leaving the secured boundaries. For people wanting to try freeriding but perhaps do not have enough experience to try it alone, there are numerous companies which offer freeride guides to explore real powder. They don't just know anything about alpine security, they also know the “really” cool descents.
