Freeride camp Pitztal
Freeriding in the glaciated high mountains
Freeriding & high-altitude ski touring belong to the supreme disciplines of skiing. Enjoy the magnificent skiing around the highest mountain in Tirol, the Wildspitze at 3770m. The king lines in Pitztal are high alpine freeride runs in steep gutters, which guide us partially over fissured glaciers and exposed ridges into hidden valleys. The terrain offers endless possibilities and the runs are diversified as in nearly no other resort. The untouched slopes and descents can be reached with ski lifts and in short ascents with climbing skins. The high light of this tour is the ascent of Wildspitze with its spectacular descent over the Taschachgletscher.
